If you want a trip to the Blue Mountains then Rob at Sydney Great Escapes should be your first call. He picked me up as scheduled, got the bus to the widlife park early so we could all enjoy the animals without the crowds. Avoided the tourist route showing us the true splendor of the area, despite some on off... More

We had a very enjoyable trip into the Blue Mountains with our guide, Rob. From initially booking the trip to the return ferry journey on the day, everything went very smoothly. Rob had loads of information to share and he made it amusing and easy to listen to. All of our questions were answered and we were able to take... More

Rob the driver was a very amicable, informative if a touch too garrulous at times, guide but overall very good at guiding and imparting information. He knew his Austealian history very well Indeed. He was very interesting about the plant life and bush fires. The only downside was the fact that the views whilst spectacular, the mountains could not be... More

A party of 4 , we were picked up at our hotel on time and as 2 other guests scheduled to join us from another hotel were ill there were just the 4 of us and Rob for the whole day. He was fun, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable and we all thoroughly enjoyed our trip. We would recommend Rob and... More

Tour starts off with an early Sydney CBD pickup before heading through city traffic to Featherdale Animal Park. As with most bus tours you never get enough time at one place to really enjoy it as need to rush through and leave. Animal Park was quite nice, before heading off for another drive to an fruit seller for a toilet... More

I spent more time than I would like to admit selecting the tour group for our day trip from Sydney to the Blue Mountains. In the end, I selected Sydney Great Escapes because of the reviews and the description provided by the tour company. The size of the tour group was perfect and we felt like we were travelling with...

We visited this place last fortnight. The views of the three sister rock formation are exquisite. The three rides i.e gondola , train and cable car offer stunning views of the valley. The train ride infuses adrenaline rush. I wish we should be given some more time there by the tour operators, especially to complete complete viewing of the valley... More

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
