“Best Day Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Our day with Activity Tours to the Blue Mountains was one of the highlights of our trip. Nigel was our driver/tour guide and we couldn't have asked for a better man for the job. He picked us up on time from our hotel and was warm and welcoming. We were introduced to our fellow travelers and given several options for the day that suited everyone's needs. On our tour, we did it all! Nigel was very informative and entertaining. When he wasn't talking we listened to great oldies on the radio but Nigel provided wonderful commentary throughout the day. He allowed plenty of time for all the different attractions and we didn't feel rushed or harried, especially since it was the Sunday of the Queen's birthday weekend. Having good weather was a plus, but no one can guarantee that. We stopped for delicious apple pie and cream along the way from one of Nigel's favorite stops. We travelled like locals. We arrived early to Scenic World, beating the crowds and long lines that came later in the morning. Afterwards he knew where to drop our son and his girlfriend off to hike to Katoomba while my husband, Nigel and I attended the Aboriginal Show in Katoomba, and others in our group took the opportunity to shop. Everyone got the chance to do what they wanted, just as Nigel promised. We loved our stop at Featherdale and had plenty of time to have our photo taken with a Koala and feed the kangaroos. The time really flew by. All in all it was a very memorable and very full day. Thank you Nigel--you helped make the day very special for all of us!

“Blue Mountains Day Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

From the moment Steve picked us up from a Sydney Hotel until the time he waved us goodbye we loved our tour to the Blue Mountains. He was fabulous to us and our 11 yr old grandson who had a ball without an X-Box in sight. The time allowed for the attractions was perfectly managed and the information he imparted was interesting to both us and Jack. We would recommend this tour to anybody who wants an interesting exciting Australian experience. Thanks Steve I hope they pay you enough for your dedication,sense of humour and lovely speaking voice - and Jack wants you to know that he is getting pretty good with the boomerang throwing. Hasn't hit anyone yet.

“Nigel is the greatest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

Nigel was absolutely wonderful and made the tour amazing! I had a brilliant time! The tour was OUR tour not his which made the whole experience magical! I could tell he loves his job and wants us to do what we want. He played Australian music for us which was very memorable! For an absolutely unforgettable experience, Nigel is the man you want to go with!

“Nigel is magic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Nigel is great and gives you want you want because it's your tour not his. He also let us go through the Olympic park! He also takes you places that other tour company's don't and he walks with you too! He also put us on the good fairy not the bad one!
