Can i begin by saying that seldom in my travels have i found a more knowledgeable,respectful and approachable tour guide than Menashe! Everywhere we went people knew him and to a man turned to us and told us we had the best guide available, so much so, that it became a standing joke that he would have lost the price of our tour in paying these people retainers!! Even more remarkable is the fact that he is not even an Aussie by birth but, rest assured,he knows more about the landscape,culture and indigenous people than the local population.I was surprised when we were picked up from our hotel at the appointed time to find that only my partner and i were booked onto the tour and he was still prepared to take us,and this having already found him to be the cheapest price and with a discount as we had been recommended by a friend!!!
So,our tour with our own personal tour guide went ahead! We arrived at the Wildlife Park early to avoid the crowds of coaches which we would see arriving as we were leaving,meaning we virtually had the run of the place! Fantastic,feeding Kangaroos with cornets and stroking Koalas and laughing at the endless circling of the Tasmanian Devil all of the time being told everything there is to know about all of the animals in the park,Menashe could answer any question.We also saw some strange sexual behaviour with the Wallabies which even Menashe had never seen and recorded on his phone to show people!! You`ll have to ask him what it was!!
The tour itself does have an itinery but, the beauty of travelling with Menashe is that if there are bits you are not so keen on he will be flexible and find other things to show you,as he did with us,although i suppose this might not be so easy with larger parties.Once you are finished with the not inconsiderable beauty,geology and history that the Blue Mountains have to offer we were thrilled to be given a quick tour around the Sydney Olympic Park and then were given the opportunity to take the ferry back to Darling Harbour rather than be dropped at our hotel. Everybody should take this option!! You get to see things that you wouldn`t see even if,like us you had already been using the water transport.The perfect end to a wonderful day!!
People!Use this company for value for money,honesty and integrity,i cannot recommend them highly enough.
