The Blue Mountains are not so much mountains as giant sandstone blocks, & they’re not so much blue as green. They hide these stunning and magical subterranean grottos, cool and prehistoric, where the water seeps from the rocks above the layers of iron-stone; where the banded cliffs are carved by age into fantastic shapes; where the ancient trees and ferns...

We were short on time so booked a half day walk which Daryl tailored to our abilities and the weather! This is an unbeatable way to get the most out of your time in The Blue Mountains. We took the Dardenelles pass circular walk and Daryl's knowledge of the area and wildlife made a good walk into a memorable day... More

We went with a group of 4 Sydney city slickers to explore the ancient canyons of the Blue Mountains. We asked to be taken to some more remote/beautiful areas as we had done well and were there for an early start so had access to everywhere. We had Daryl as our guide and he took us to Sheep Dip and... More

I have never felt inspired to write a tripadvisor review before, but this was a truly wonderful day and well worth every dollar. I did the Jameson valley traverse with Daryl and had a fantastic time . Loved the experience of being deep in the forest , with the creeks and wildlife and no other humans, coming across little windows... More

These guys are very personable and knowledgeable which makes for a fantastic trip. We did an overnight trip and they supplied everything we needed. Our guide Mark grew up playing in the Blue Mountains so he really knows the territory. The scenery was amazing and it was a good physical hike coming out of the valley. I would highly recommend...

Took a chance with Daryl and Katie. Did 15.6km of serious bushwhacking from Lockley's Pylon to Govetts Leap in just under 7 hours. Blue Mountains Guides did not disappoint one bit and left me smiling all the way home. Daryl took care of me and my expectations from the moment I met him. He provided first class yet down to...

I really enjoyed my personalized bush-walk with Blue mountains guides! I was taken on the track through National Pass giving me the opportunity to see Australian bush-land, rain forests and the great orange cliffs. My favorite part of the trip was seeing the gigantic and beautiful Empress Falls. This was the most impressive waterfall I have ever seen!! Daryl is... More

My sister and I wanted the "Outback Experience" while she visited from the US. And the Sunset Tour did not disappoint. We saw kangaroos in the wild and a Funnel Web Spider (which to me was cool but they are very deadly so a little scary). Gorgeous scenery and our guide (it's been a while so I have forgotten his...
