Well, after reading the reviews about Nigel we were a bit sceptical when we found out he was our driver and guide but we actually found him to be very entertaining and accommodating. No pushing to have lunch or to do the cable cars. Nigel took us to Featherdale on the way back so we didn't encounter all the other... More

We had a very nice tour to the Blue Mts with Mark. Our group was small, and Mark was a congenial, knowledgeable guide. We were disappointed to find that we were not to be picked up at our hotel, especially considering that we needed to be outside the pickup point at 6:50am. However, the biggest surprise (perhaps my own fault... More

Thanks for highlighting this in case our explanation on the website is not clear. The Blue Mountains tour finishes the day with a river cruise that starts at the Sydney Olympic Park wharf and you can disembark at either Darling Harbour or Circular Quay. The tour finishes when you leave the boat and you then need to make your own... More

I had the pleasure of seeing the Blue Mountains thru Activity Tours and their excellent guide Steve. The experience started off very good when they told me that I did not have to go to another hotel to be picked up in the morning, they will come to my hotel. Steve was an excellent tour guide even though my group... More

I took both the Hunter Valley and Blue Mountain day tours. The trips were great. The small shuttle bus picked me up at my hotel and was on time as advertised. Both Ray and Steve were both very friendly and courteous tour guides. I would highly recommend booking tours with this company.

Our driver was Mark. Being in our 60's we couldn't have had a better choice. Mark had the right blend of information, interaction and personal qualities to ensure all of his passengers had a remarkable experience. There were 9 of us in the group - 4 couples and a single. Whilst the coach has a capacity of double that, it... More

We took the bus tour to the Blue Mountains and had a good experience. Nigel, the bus driver commented about the area, the history and the people throughout the trip. What impressed us most was that he lead a hike to the Katoomba Falls. A beautiful hike albeit somewhat strenuous. This was beyond our expectations and a welcome part of... More

Our tour guide Nigel was very informative and very nice. I personally enjoyed his blunt remarks and the fact that he got to know everyone on the tour and he spoke to everyone on the bus to make sure we were all having a fantastic time. Which we did.

Blue Mountains are epic and beautiful. I highly recommend this attraction. However Nigel the guide from Activity Tours was unfortunately the most disorganized and blatantly burnt out tour guide I've experienced. (I've loved my many tours all through South American, Bali, HI, etc. so I draw upon many positive tour experiences w/ trust worthy guides.) Nigel missed his chance to... More

Thank you for providing your feedback. We sincerely apologise for the negative experiences that you had on the day. Our local guides get to know many of the owners of places which previous tours have enjoyed and so each has their own suggestions to choose from at lunch time. They do not receive kick backs for these recommendations, but you... More

Booked a tour with Activity Tours while in Sydney. They picked us up at our hotel. We were a small group to visit the Blue Mountains. We also had other stops including one to visit the Featherdale Wildlife Park. We came back to Sydney taking a ferry near the Olympic Stadium. We had a great guide with a good sense... More

I had a great day going out to the Blue Mountain with Nigel. He is very timely and likes things to be precise. No one on the tour wanted to do the cable cars so we had more time to enjoy what we wanted to see. Nigel took us for a nature walk into the valley where we went to... More
