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

As a solo traveller I was a little apprehensive and although I was the only young person I had such a lovely time. Rob the driver was so entertaining and friendly. 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

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

I was really impressed with the way Bronwyn & Rob handled our arrangements. 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
