“Blue Diamond Shines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Had a great experience on two different tours--Blue Diamond to the Blue Mountains, and Red Diamond (same company) to Tobruk Sheep Station. Both trips were excellent. Vehicles were comfortable, air conditioned, new-ish and sparkling clean; one was a 14 passenger Mercedes bus, the other a VW 7-passenger bus. We were picked up promptly, the trip was well narrated and crisply timed, but not so tightly timed as to be hurried. Rob and his wife Alena (also an accomplished tour guide) were on the Red trip together with us; Rob drove our group alone on the Blue trip. The groups were small and comfortable; Rob's planning avoided, where possible, arriving at attractions when other, larger groups were there so as to minimize congestion. Meal locations were very nice facilities but not run-of-the-mill. Obviously Rob and his team has done excellent research. Many tour company trips go to the Blue Mountains, a day trip well worth taking, but I don't know how anyone could do it better than Blue Diamond. The Red Diamond trip was a little shorter (7:30AM-3PM) but absolutely different and fascinating--different geography and different activities. In both cases the food provided was excellent and appropriate. I would recommend either, or both, tours without hesitation.

“More personal tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

Alex was a great tour guide with lots of insight and bad jokes .I found the whole experience worth the money. I hate the usual masses of azzez tours and Alex made sure our small group didn't get bogged down behind them. We had a good time. Thank you.

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

The Blue Mountains tour was one of the highlights of my trip! Very well organised and structured, it was a fantastic day out with lots of sights to see and lots of things to be done. A lot was packed into the tour but it never felt rushed and we had time to enjoy every stop along the way. A lot was definitely learned on the journey. Huge thanks to our tour guide Alex for an amazing day!

“Amazing Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Rob was our guide for the Blue Mountains, and it was a great experience. The Blue Mountains are amazing, and something you must go and see if you visit Sydney. The groups are small for this tour and it is put together very well. We arrived at Scenic World before all the other tour buses, and we also arrived at the wildlife park while they were feeing the koalas. I highly recommend this tour, you won't be disappointed.

“Awesome Daytrip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

We had such a wonderful time with Ian as our guide. He was very informative about all the areas we drove through and toured. The breakfast and lunch which were included were very good! The Wildlife Park was so much fun, loved the Koalas, Wallabies, Penguins, aso. Would highly recommend!
