  • Brilliant Tour with our tour guide Sam, insightful and informative on the historic places in Sydney. The Jenolan Caves is not for just anyone, it's all based on your fitness and health. If you are fitness guru, then take up the River Cave, but if you just want to take your time and enjoy the caves for all its glory, go for the Lucas, I would highly recommend you to see your doctor about your health before doing these caves as it can take a toll as you get further in. My partner and I assisted a few that needed help, but we found it to be an awesome fitness trek for us. Cafe was good, warm and clean, food was good too, price was standard as all tourist places are. Best to take your own packed lunch if your on a budget. Great tour, thank you Sam for showing us around.
  • This place was amazing!!! The natural formations blew my mind. There are a few guided tours available with for different grades of fitness. Tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. If visiting for the first time and you are a teacher, i noticed you can select a guided tour for free. Not sure if this promotion is still available, but you could save some $$$ by double checking.
