Myself, husband and 16 year old daughter decided on a blue mountains tour as our time in Sydney was limited.we chose Sydney great escapes after reading great TA reviews. We were not disappointed! We were picked up from our hotel early by our fantastic driver Rob, a part time forest fireman. His banter was both amusing and informative at the... More

the weather could not have been worse for our tour - it was raining, freezing, and windy. that being said, our tour guide made sure that we got the most out of the experience (he even offered me his jacket when i was cold!). by the time we got to featherdale, the rain was so bad that it was unpleasant...

Booked tour with Blue Ribbon. Travelled with my family. Our driver and guide Michael was very informative and organized the whole tour very well. The stopover at the wildlife park was worth it. The whole trip was highly recommended.

What a fantastic day. We were picked up from our hotel in a small but comfortable mini bus and taken on a journey to see the most spectacular scenery. What made the day so good though was Rob, our driver, he was friendly, knowledgeable and very organised. This trip is highly recommended. we had a ball!!

Rob is hands down the best tour guide I have ever had anywhere! The tour was excellent.....the photo stops were excellent.....he took us off the beaten path because he had a smaller bus....his knowledge is incredible and he is a really nice guy...not pretend nice, genuinely nice! Ran into some really bad traffic on our return due to an accident... More

Had a very personal experience on this tour being the only 2 passengers. The fact that we were the first ones in to the wildlife park meant we were able to spend quite a bit of time with the koala that you can get up close to & the kangaroos & wallabies were keen to be fed. Rob was very... More

A lovely day out indeed. I enjoyed everything: the lovely weather, the beautiful animals at Featherdale, the fantastic scenes of Blue Mountains, ferry trip to Circular Quay at dusk, and in particular the company of our excellent guide (Rob) and his anecdotes about Australia and its people. I learned something new from Rob when we saw an injured or dead... More

We got to see quite a few areas and had a lovely lunch. Rob was very informative and was great company. The blue mountains themselves were beautiful and I... More

Had a fantastic day out in the Blue Mountains. Booking and pick up all very efficient (the benefit of booking through a family run business). As a former firefighter and having been brought up in the Blue Mountains area, Rob knew the area very well and told us stories that you certainly wouldn't hear on some of the bigger tours.... More

Booked online from overseas and went very smoothly. Collected at airport and small bus so not loads and loads of hotel pick ups which can be the case. Rob was full of facts and info and really liked to talk - sometimes his comments were not to everyones taste - so best to stick to facts rather than opinions. First... More
