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

We were lucky that we selected a gorgeous sunny day for this trip, we were more lucky to join a small group guided by Rob, he is knowledgeable almost in each every topic we chatted on, he did an excellent job in catching everyone's attention all the way - including my 12 year old son. I highly recommend "Sydney Great... More

What a great day! We went from the Featherdale Sanctuary to a ride on the ferry and so many things in between.

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. I was alone and had a blast. The day is filled to the minute with good stuff. I just can't say enough good things about... More

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
