This is the best tour. Rob is the perfect blend of fun and information. The trip is worth it just to spend the day with Rob. There were solo travelers and couples on this trip.

We went on the tour on Friday 10th of April. We were picked up promptly at 7am by Rob, our tour guide add driver. Our itinerary was packed with things like Featherdale wildlife park, fantastic viewing points that no one else uses, a great lunch, and of course the 3 sisters views. We chose to walk down the steps and... More

We were picked up at our hotel at 7am by the most interesting, knowledgeable, funny guide, Rob. The group was small which was great. We started our tour at a wildlife preservation centre and fed kangaroos, patted a koala, scratched a wombat and watched a Tasmanian devil run round it's enclosure, fantastic start! We saw great views of the Australian... More

I had a wonderful time on this trip to the Blue Mountains, and found Rob to be a great tour guide with a brilliant sense of humour! The itinerary was great, and the entire day was inspirational from beginning to end. I had the good fortune to be sat up front next to Rob in the minibus and was fascinated... More

We found Sydney Great Escapes through Trip Advisor and our Blue Mountains day trip exceeded expectations. Full credit to tour operator Rob, who knows his job, his land and local history, and how to relate to people. We were picked up in a roomy air-con van (seats about 12) and taken to Featherdale Wildlife Park, arriving before hoardes of others... More

Great itinerary which worked like clockwork. Rob is a brilliant tour guide developing rapport quickly with a diverse international group through banter and a vast general knowledge of world and local history. His use of satire and humour, and the fantastic sights visited made for a brilliant day out. A must if this is your thing.

What a fantastic day! Rob picked me up from my hotel, the small bus was super comfortable and the day was fantastic. We were taken to quiet spots where there were very few tourists so were able to enjoy the views peacefully. A great day for a very reasonable price.

We were wanting to show the Blue Mountains to our group of family visitors from Denmark, in early January 2015, and only had one day to do it! Our day with Rob from Sydney Great Escapes lived up to our every expectation, including those of us who had been there before and those who had never set foot in Australia.... More

Our first full day in Sydney and we had pre-booked the Blue Mountain Tour with Sydney Great Escapes after reading previous reviews. We were not to be disappointed. Rob picked us up on time and proceeded to advise we were the only couple on the tour today which left us rather surprised as when this has happened before with other... More

We had setup a Blue Mountains tour with Sydney Great Escapes for the day after we arrived in Australia from the US on October 29, 2014. Unknown to us, we were the only couple to have scheduled a tour on that day. The company wanted to see if we could move to a different day, but could not contact us... More
