Even though there was just two of us, and one guide, we still had a blast on this trip. We were amazed at how organized the trip was even though we had booked pretty much the night before. Our guide, Stew, was extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and made the trip exceed our expectations, even as former trip... More

Everyone said we could do this hike without a guide, but we would have been missing so much. Daryl met us at the Grand Canyon Hike spot (but would have picked us up). As we hiked down (the steepest part) others were hiking up and panting profusely. Daryl was an expert on the flora and fauna. When it started to... More

Hi JoAnne, It certainly was a one-in-a-million kind of day. I'm so pleased I saw you at the end of the day to see your reaction to your experience and have a laugh. That hail was crazy and you were able to witness how the environment here responds to rare, severe weather phenomena. All the rain had certainly increased the... More

Our guide Matt took us on a day long hike via the Jameson traverse. As an avid hiker, looking to experience the Australian landscape, this track delivered everything and more. We were preview to scenic views, challenging terrain (not for young children or the out of shape), gorgeous waterfalls, and much more. Matt was very knowledgeable about the local terrain... More

We were looking for an overnight hike as part of our 2 week visit from the UK to see friends in Sydney. Research had given a few companies offering various walks, hikes etc. I emailed the company and within 24 hours had a response. Initially we wanted to do the Secret Hike, which sounds absolutely fabulous, but after we had... More

Mal S forgot to say about the sandwiches which were enormous but just what we needed. Homemade cakes as well. Plus we had freshly made tea with a viewpoint. Yes, the walking and sightseeing were great. Wish it could have been longer.

Hi Josylin, Yes I often look at those sandwiches and think 'Good Grief! They are a overwhelming' though after a big walk and lots of energy spent they are definitely what you need to refuel and keeping going! So pleased you enjoyed your day. Thanks again for choosing Blue Mountains Guides! Katie More

A great day out with Daryl. Great walk down some little used tracks. Lots of information about the flora, fauna and geology. What's not to like?

Looking for the perfect tour to spend a day in the blue mountains, I searched the interenet and found this small organisation, offering daywalks through the blue mountains AWAY from the tourist tracks. I didn´t want the typical touristic programm of the three sisters and scenic world and that´s it. I wanted to get my hiking shoes out, climb over... More

Dear Alexandra, We are so pleased you speak so highly of your walk as a solo client. Daryl is always happy to get out for a walk with good company. Ruined Castle really does show off the differing ecosystems of The Blue Mountains through a relatively small area. The mist lifting through the trees is a magical outlook from the... More

Although we live in Sydney, we had yet to do more serious bushwalking in the Blue Mountains. This was the perfect way to do it. Daryl is a skilled and knowledgeable guide, and is able to customise your experience to both skills and interests. For us, we were lucky to have a one-on-one experience through the Jameson Valley on an... More

We were originally booked (by a travel agent) on a coach tour from Sydney for the day. As a more adventurous couple, we decided sitting on a bus all day and waiting for everyone to get on/off a bus was not for us. After a little searching and a quick call to Blue Mountain Guides, we knew we made the... More
