Rob was our driver and guide for the tour. He was friendly and informative. There were 12 of us and we quickly made our way to Featherdale Wildlife Park. The park was covered in fog when we arrived, but we have no trouble seeing the Koalas and other native Aussie animals. We made a stop at Bilpin Fruit Bowl and... More

Having read the reviews about this company we decided to book - we were not disappointed. From the time we were picked up from our hotel at 7am in the pouring rain it was fun all day with a mixture of hilarious and interesting facts / tales. Not sure the Aussie Prime Minister would agree, not that he was the... More

It was a great tour and we thoroughly enjoyed all of the stops along the way to the blue mountains. The only complaint would be the food. You are taken to this lovely old fashioned hotel, however, you need to know what to order. I ordered the steak and it was extremely tough and over cooked. STAY AWAY FROM THE... More

Rob is by far the best guide you will have going to the Blue Mountains. We were picked up early on May 20 with about 7 other people. Rather than give just the generic facts about Sydney and the Blue Mountains, Rob includes his own take and keeps it fun and informative. We were the first to arrive at the... More

From the many positive reviews of Sydney Great Escapes I knew this was the tour to pick...and I was not disappointed...Rob our guide was one of the nicest funniest but also very knowledgeable guide ever. It was a small group which made it the day more efficient as we didn't have to waste time catering to many people's needs. Rob... More

Rob is a fantastic guide and host.Throughout the day he shares tons of information about Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the history of the country and the area. More important, he is HILARIOUS!! If you are sensitive to politically-incorrect humor you might find some of the humor offensive, but our group was laughing so hard we had tears rolling down... More

Rob is a must see in Sydney, a true blue Aussie! Only overshadowed by the majesty of the Blue Mountains.
