“fabulous day in the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

What can I say, this tour was great. It started with a trip to the featherdale animal resort where we got to pet kangaroos and koala bears and then we learned how to throw a boomarang. Then we headed to the blue mountains, saw a couple parts of it, hiked, and then rode the cable car if you wanted too. To finish it off we went to olympic park where the sydney olympic games were held and took a ferry home. Amazing trip and our guide Steve was INCREDIBLE! I could not have asked for a better guide, he was very informative, friendly, and most implortantly made the day fun! We will definelty use them again in the future!

“Blue Mountains Day Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Very fun and all encompassing. Mark was knowledgeable of the area and the traffic. He got us to the very popular Featherdale Wildlife park early before the masses. Then to the mountains where he specialized our tour to miss the crowds. As someone who hikes often in the area, he was familiar to locales not full of other tour busses but still with spectacular views. As Supergran44 stated, the day was full and the best way to get to know Sydney in a day. One of the best decisions while in Australia was going on this trip. Fun for all ages and interests. Wear comfortable shoes and expect different weather in the Blue Mountains than in Sydney. Highly recommend.

“Fantastic experience in the Blue Mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Everything was perfect except the weather but Mark our guide couldn't do anything about that. We were picked up promptly at 7.40 am outside our hotel and our first stop was at Featherdale Wildlife Park where we got an hour to see all the native animal species including dozens of wallabies and Koalas. Then up to the mountains for a couple of viewpoints before lunch in the town of Katoomba where the weather changed. Mark went to buy tickets for the cable cars and railways so we wouldn't have to wait. The wind got up and the temperature dropped to 6 degrees with a shower and even a snow flurry. My daughter and I were dressed in T shirts and shorts with just a light cardigan so we were freezing. My daughter borrowed Mark's hat, sweater and gloves and I just froze but I didn't care as the views were spectacular and he took us to viewing places where the other tours don't go. We were offered a choice of riding across the site or walking with Mark and he took us to three different viewpoints and a waterfall for photos giving us lots of information on the way. Then we walked down to the bottom with over 700 steps and caught an almost vertical train back to the top. We also stopped at a couple of viewing spots for photos on the way back. That wasn't all as he took us on a drive round the Sydney Olympic Site before dropping us at the wharf where we had a choice of a slow cruise with Captain Cook Tours back to the harbour or a quicker ferry if we were pushed for time. It was a brilliant day out and Mark was an excellent guide. If you are short of time it is a great way to see many sites in one day. We arrived back at the harbour at 7 pm exhausted but happy.
