Thank you for your glowing endorsement Behruz. You're right it was a very busy weekend for tourists, but I think we managed to avoid the crowds quite well. I am very glad that you and your family enjoyed the experience, and I hope you had a nice week in Sunny Queensland too. Sally More

We are just home with wonderful memories of the 4 day bush tour from Sydney. We were a group of only 4, some with mobility challenges, and Sally did a wonderful job of tailoring the trip to meet our needs, without anyone feeling we were missing anything. She was always relaxed, flexible and responsive and the schedule was not overly... More

Our four day tour with Sally was the highlight of our family trip to Australia. Our kids (9 & 13) loved the tour as well. Some people below have commented on the long car ride. Is there a lot of driving? Yes. But to experience the things you get to on this tour, you have to get out of the... More

Do not go on this. I went with my 11/13 year olds and she got drunk and could not drive. My kids were scared. Could not open the car door etc. We cancelled the tour and she asked for $ 300 to get us back to Sydney. No choice. Being out in nowhere we had to pay to get back... More

Hi Shell, You know that everything you have said is untrue. The cost of your tour was $2100 (as clearly stated on my website as the minimum booking must include 2 adult fares) but you chose to pay only $1800, even after several telephone calls in which you attempted to get a discount. So you know very well that the... More

I joined Sally on her tour and had a great time. The group was with 10 people and we did the 4 day farm stay tour. The distances were fine (not to long driving). Sally is a great host. She knows a lot, is friendly, helpful and kind. She made such an effort to help me (being a celiac). She... More

Thank you for your lovely endorsement Berthe. I am glad you enjoyed all the special gluten free foods I prepared and bought, it was fun baking! Having 10 passengers on board was exciting as it was my biggest group, but you were all fantastic and I'm happy that I was able to provide you with a great experience. More

The overnight at the Morris farm was delightful. It was not contrived and gave us an opportunity to spend time with some real Australians. Being on a farm where they still use draft horses instead of tractors was a once in lifetime experience, and the stars that evening were spectacular. The distance to the Morris farm is substantial, but Sally... More

We booked a three day bush tour with Sally, it was lovely to be collected at our hotel and not have the hassle of organising transport ourselves but if we had known how good public transport is in the Blue Mountains we would have saved a lot of money booking ourselves. We enjoyed our stay on the farm but found... More

Thank you for your review Elizabeth, I am certainly very sorry that you don't feel that you got value for money. As you know the tour I arranged for you was not my standard itinerary and there was much negotiation between us about the service that you wanted. At all times I provided comprehensive descriptions of exactly what was available... More

Some tours just give you a little but ours with Sally Bray was absolutely excellent and quite robust. In two days, there were so many enjoyable activities packed in. Sally provided history and legend as we were driving between activities. From visiting the Jenolan caves to petting kangaroos to riding the steepest railway in the world, we had so much... More

I appreciated Sally's various knowledge about history, plants and animals. She was very attentive that I feel comfortable. I enjoyed having morning tea and fresh lunch outside. The trip had a variable Programm of wildlife, nature, history and australian Lifestyle. The best was the farmstay, sitting around the campfire, listen to Bill playing the guitare and in the early morning... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the tours that were provided. It was nice to not be crowded onto a bus and we could spend as much time as we wanted at each place we stopped. Tea and lunch was also provided. I would recommend this to anyone.
