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

I agree with many of the comments in these reviews and will not repeat them here. Rob is a good guy with a good heart - though very occasionally, the content of his running review does border on the inappropriate. He does have a special and amazing knowledge of the area which would be hard to replicate in another tour... More

To book the day tour was so easy, I just rang up and booked it for 3 of us who we staying at the Hilton. Bronnie said that was completely fine, they picked us up at 07:10 outside on Pitt Street bang on time. The day before I had to amend the booking and add one more person, this was... More

The day i wanted for our tour was booked out but Bronwyn was so helpful coordinating my travel itinerary so i could fit my trip in and all this late on a Sunday night! Very impressive. Rob was entertaining & so informative right through the long trip.... More

Family of 4 - parents and 2 older teenagers. Very early start - 710am out on the street waiting! There were 10 in total on our trip - Kiwis, English, American and Sri Lankan. And Rob. He entertained us virtually non stop, full of stories and yarns about Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the geography and history of the area, as... More

This day trip was one of the best tours we have ever taken. Rob is one awesome man who should actually be an entertainer! His knowledge of the Blue Mountains and surrounding area is full of wonderful insights. Our tour group was filled with really nice folks from all over the world and we all had a marvelous time doing... More

For those looking for a truly memorable trip to the Blue Mountains you need look no further. Rob our guide has been going to the Blue Mountains since he was a child, he knows the place like the back of his hand and his knowledge is second to none! Many Thanks Rob Joe and Liz Evangelista

We absolutely loved our day trip to the Blue Mountains. Rob managed to pack a lot into a day and it was brilliant! The early start was worth it as we saw lots of animals at the Wildlife Park (and they were excited to see us as we were the first visitors of the day). The tour bus was the... More

Rob our driver was a great guide. Small group of six, two from Canada, one UK, one San Francisco and two Texas made for a fun group. Rob had us introduce ourselves and proceeded to make us all feel welcome. Little early start but it was well worth it. Got to the Feather dale Animal Park first so we were... More
