Booked our trip to the blue mountains through AATKings, the coach arrived at the designated pick up hotel at the correct time, all 15 present and on the road in minutes. The driver John S was certainly a character. Very informative and funny. Gave out plenty of history and antidotes of the areas we passed through. There are stops on... More

Our owner driver Rob picked us up prompt from our hotel for the start of what was to be a very entertaining day. He was extremely knowledgeable and witty and went that extra mile to ensure we had a great day. Once in The Blue Mountains he took us off the beaten track to show us parts you would not... More

Rob was a very entertaining and knowledgeable guide for our trip round the Blue Mountains. The itinerary missed all the crowds and also gave us a full view of the Blue Mountains beyond the Three Sisters. If you have a Wigan or Liverpool football shirt bring it along! Would definitely recommend this trip.

I visited Australia in early October with my brothers and sisters and had been searching the web for a day tour to the Blue Mountains. This was by far the best for reviews and I had no regrets whatsoever having chosen this group! The tour is for a max of 14 people in a spacious minibus with the driver and... More

Our driver and guide, Rob, really made the trip. He was both knowledgeable and funny. The good thing about this tour is that there will be a maximum of 14 people, on the day I did it, there were only 7. This meant that we avoided being herded around. We headed first to Featherdale Wildlife Park, getting there ahead of... More

This was a tour of the beautiful and scenic blue mountains and thanks to our guide Rob, it was one funny and entertaining glimpse into Aussie humor. Take a deep breath and inhale the crisp air. Exhale into chuckles as you are entertained by the comic that is also driver, guide and historian. And remember to take lots of photos... More

First, while booking this I had to make several changes to the dates and number of people going on the tour. Bronwyn was great! She was quick to respond and very flexible with my changes. On the day, we were picked up promptly in front of the Marriott. Rob is an amazing tour guide with a wicked sense of humour... More

My mom and I were very lucky to be the only passengers the day we took the tour. The driver, Rob, was what made the tour so wonderful. He knew when to talk to us and when to leave us alone. He had a wealth of knowledge about all things related to Australia. This is a must do on a... More

Went there with my families. Nice view and lots of view points. Air was refreshing. Definitely a must go if you have time to spare. We went there in Nov, the weather was cold and we need thick fleece jacket with windbreaker in the morning.
