Went on the Wentworth Falls walk in the Blue Mountains. The walk was quite strenuous especially the climb up, but it was well worth it considering the views. The organisation of the trip was perfect and our guide Drew worked hard to makes it a successful day.

We choose Life's an Adventure because we wanted to visit those parts of the Blue Mountains off limits to larger vehicles and what a good decision we made. Our guide, Drew, picked us up from our hotel and after a bit of a boring drive we arrived in the misty and cool Blue Mountains. Fortunately, as Drew had predicted, the... More

Living in Sydney we had visited the Blue Mountains on several occasions and decided to experience another side of the Blue Mountains through Life's An Adventure.

The reason I chose to go on a full day tour of The Blue Mountains was because of the raving reviews I read on here. From 7am when Dru collected me from the hotel (yes - the company offer collections..another bonus), I knew it would be a great day as I have never known such enthusiasm so early in the... More

Had an awesome time. My friends and I found the track quite hard, but Nigel looked after us all the way. Met some wonderful walkers on our trip and now I can get shoes on my feet again I am ready for another adventure.

Fantastic fun tour in some challenging condition's in the harbour, some amazing views of the city form a unique perspective. Mark was a fantastic guide who kept us entertained throughout even whilst battling the rather challenging elements. Defiantly recommend to anyone wanting a different look at the city.

We did the Sydney harbour kayak today and could not have been happier with our experience. Conditions on the water weren't ideal, but our guide Mark made us all feel very much at ease. The paddle under the bridge is pretty amazing and gives you a very different perspective of one of Sydney's famous landmarks. Everything was provided including a... More

My husband and I were very happy with our day tour of the Blue Mountains. Our guide Dru was very fun and informative. Pickup was prompt at our hotel, and there were plenty of stops for bathroom breaks. We went to multiple areas of the Blue Mountains, and ate lunch at a local restaurant. It was a great day!!

Hi Danielle, Thanks for your review. I hope Chris enjoyed his birthday cake !! It was certainly a cold day in the mountains , so glad you enjoyed lunch in the warm restaurant rather than our usual outdoor picnic. Dru is a great guide and we are glad to hear he made the day special for you More
