My husband and I spent a day in the Blue mountains with Daryl our guide . It was a very enjoyable day and Daryl was most informative.At the completion he took us on a extra tour to explore other aspects of the Blue Mountains . We look forward to going back and will certainly do another day tramp with Daryl

I was traveling on business solo and wanted to see the Blue Mountains. Daryl was willing to work around my schedule and do an overnight camping trip and hikes over both days. We hit a storm when I arrived, so Daryl took me to a wonderful new museum on the Blue Mountains while it poured and we managed to wait... More

Dear Tricia, Yes you found your timing to Sydney and The Blue Mountains in a very strange weather pattern with over a week with daily thunderstorms. The weather gave Daryl a great opportunity to show you The Cultural Centre with the fantastic permanent exhibition of The Blue Mountains Heritage National Park. We were glad the weather cleared and your enthusiasm... More

I would like to take a moment to thank Daryl for a wonderful afternoon out in the Blue Mountains. Coming from overseas, I was not at all familiar with this part of the world. I was traveling on business, and only had a short time (1 afternoon) to see the area. Daryl was very accommodating and set-up a wonderful day!... More

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...

Dear Ricci and Karen, We were looking forward to your tour since your first enquiry. Daryl's initial nerves were only due to making sure your experience was up to his high standards.

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
