Last April (2013), I decided to do a number of tours with Life's an Adventure. My decision was based on a previous experience with the company last year. I sent the company an email about three weeks before I headed to Sydney to find out what was on offer during my stay. From this moment, I was impressed to find that so many tours were occurring. The dealing with Mark and his crew in the lead up to the tours was fantastic, it could not be flawed. So, this time I choose to do three day tours: 'Best of the Blue Mountains 4WD Tour', 'Valley of the Waterfalls Walking/Hiking Tour' and 'Ruined Castle Walk & Scenic Railway Ride'. The days were pleasant.
The first was the 4WD tour. Every moment of this tour was brilliant. I immensely enjoyed the resplendent scenery and company of the people on the trip. The guide, Dru, was a fountain of knowledge about the flora in the Mountains. Lunch on this day was outstanding. What can I say? It was the best meal I had on my holiday in Sydney.
The Valley of the Waterfalls tour was a little wet and a quite cold. Despite this the scenery was still splendid. Even though it was raining and foggy, we were still able to see the waterfalls in the valley. There are also a lot of stairs, yes, stairs. I was feeling the effects of those stairs for two days. The guide ensured that everyone was comfortable and relaxed on this tour. Considering the weather conditions, I was still able to enjoy the experience, one of which I would like to do again, without the rain and fog.
The final tour to the Ruined Castle was magnificent. This day was the longest, but the most enjoyable, seven hours of walking in total. This was also the largest group, but everyone was keen and enthusiastic which made the day pleasing. The majority of the time was spent walking and absorbing the impressive and remarkable views of the Blue Mountains. The guide, Kate, had a very passionate and bubbly personality which added to the value of the group. If you do not like steep inclines scenic railway is not for you. It was not something I will anytime soon, I was petrified.
I will look forward to doing another tour with Life’s an Adventure in the future. I would also highly recommend them to others who would like an experience to remember with a fantastic company.
