You have an early start to beat the buses at Featherdale wildlife park, where you get to see and cuddle the usual Aussie wildlife. Then off on a drive to the hills, stopping at times to see various points of interest. Then up... More

Rob led a fantastic trip! He took us to locations I would have never been able to see that had zero other tourists and the most amazing views. Rob was also entertaining and gave some very interesting facts about the country and land along the way. Highly recommend!

This was a smaller group tour, and our driver Rob did his best to work around the weather and provide us with some great views before the mist came rolling in with the rain. We stopped at some local lookouts the bigger buses would not have been able to stop at and we were rewarded with some stunning rock formations... More

A very well organised tour with a knowledgeable guide. Entry to the zoo before it opened so missed the crowds and got the koalas all to ourselves! Couldn't see much in the mountains due to the rain - if you have the option, go on a sunny day!

We stopped off at various place en route, places that only a local would know and then the main tourist hot spots. I can certainly see why the Trip Advisor reviews are excellent, it was excellent. If you are going to the Blue... More

Our owner driver Rob picked us up prompt from our hotel for the start of what was to be a very entertaining day. He was extremely knowledgeable and witty and went that extra mile to ensure we had a great day. Once in The Blue Mountains he took us off the beaten track to show us parts you would not... More
