Our travel agency recommended us the excursion to Blue Montains during our stay in Sydney in July 2014. They were who booked with Boutique tours, and what was our surprise when we realized that the guide began to improvise the tour. He didn´t know what to do first, he only asked us what we really wanted to do. It can... More

We had requested a hike as part of our tour and we were very happy they accommodated us. Howard was our leader and he recommended an awesome 2 hour walk away from the crowds with phenomenal views along a ridge. He walked with us on the first part of our hike until there was no chance of us getting lost,... More

I was prepared to be angry when they called up and wanted to switch my tour of the Blue Mountains to the next day. After all, I had planned my schedule around this tour (to a certain degree). However, the tour and the tour guide more than made up for it. We were picked up on time and after picking... More

We joined the Saturday Hunter Valley tour with Keith as our guide. He was an all-round brilliant host - friendly, knowledgeable, considerate and shared plenty of stories and jokes throughout the trip. While I personally wasn't a big fan of the majority of wines we tasted that day, I can't fault the genuine service we received at all three wineries.... More

The "one sentence" says it all. Keith's knowledge of the wine country and our winery hosts put us all at ease and in good spirits

Thanks for your review, and glad you enjoyed the tour. Please note though, we always include the return by ferry as an option only. In other words, you're also welcome to stay in the vehicle and have the guide return you directly to your hotel. Either option is possible, and both options are included in the price of your tour....
