“Fabulous way to spend a day and remember it for a lifetime!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

This tour was fantastic. A highlight of our holiday. We were picked up at our hotel in downtown Sydney at exactly the time arranged. Even though we had arranged this tour months before and could not anticipate the fires in the Blue Mountains in October, our tour went ahead with only one or two changes to accommodate closed roads. Having Rob guide us was a huge asset. Being a fire fighter he knew all about the areas we had to stay clear of and the routes around troublesome areas. Rob had so many stories that on the drives we were all thoroughly engaged in the history, politics and environment of the Blue Mountains. That said.....the Blue Mountains are mesmerizing. Totally and completely awesome! We loved every second of our day. Well worth every penny. Communications with the company were easy and helpful.

“Brilliant Blue Mountains Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Both myself and my boyfriend had an amazing time on this trip. Having been in Sydney for 10 months and not made it to the Blue Mountains we thought it was about time we did.

We decided to book a tour rather than drive ourselves and we are so glad that we did. We would of never of found the amazing lookouts and views that Rob took us to or gone away with any of the interesting bits of information that was shared.

Being able to go to the Featherdale Wildlife Park right at the beginning of the day was brilliant, especially as we were the first people into the park.

The whole day was a really enjoyable experience that was well worth the price, we will defiantly be recommending this trip to any friends of relatives that come over to Australia.
