5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2014 via mobile

today we went on a tour of the Blue Mountains it was amazing!! We saw so many things and experience Australia up close and personal. I especially appreciated Drew. He was very professional& he told us a lot about what we were seeing. He was always courteous & really saw to all our needs. I would highly recommend him as a guide.

“Exciting Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2014 via mobile

Went on the Wentworth Falls walk in the Blue Mountains. The walk was quite strenuous especially the climb up, but it was well worth it considering the views. The organisation of the trip was perfect and our guide Drew worked hard to makes it a successful day.

“A 4 wheel drive experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2014

We choose Life's an Adventure because we wanted to visit those parts of the Blue Mountains off limits to larger vehicles and what a good decision we made. Our guide, Drew, picked us up from our hotel and after a bit of a boring drive we arrived in the misty and cool Blue Mountains.
Fortunately, as Drew had predicted, the mist cleared and we were able to see the 3 Sisters and Mount Solitary en route to off road viewing locations where we were the only visitors.
Normally an outdoor picnic lunch is provided but because of the weather we were taken to a 5 star hotel in Katoomba overlooking the mountains for lunch.
Drew was an excellent guide with a wide knowledge of all aspects of life in the Blue Mountains.
This small group tour is highly recommended.

“Blue Mountains Experience - Off the beaten track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2014

Living in Sydney we had visited the Blue Mountains on several occasions and decided to experience another side of the Blue Mountains through Life's An Adventure. Did not know what to expect when we were picked up by our friendly guide Adam who had an astonishing knowledge of the Australian bush and was very entertaining as we navigated through breathtaking sites which we NEVER would have seen without such insider knowledge. We were able to avoid the hoards of tourists and instead indulged in the wonder of the Blue Mountains in absolute serenity (though a bit of effort in required in hiking through the bush). The day rang true to the company name - highly recommended.

Wow what a great review, Adam will be stoked you had such as wonderful day out with him in the Blue Mountains. We really strive to provide a very personalised tour of the Blue Mountains away and great to hear you felt we succeeded. Love to see you on another adventure in the future.

“MUST DO! Blue Mountains Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2014

The reason I chose to go on a full day tour of The Blue Mountains was because of the raving reviews I read on here.

From 7am when Dru collected me from the hotel (yes - the company offer collections..another bonus), I knew it would be a great day as I have never known such enthusiasm so early in the morning (apart from me!).

On the way to pick up other equally excitable tourists, Dru gave me a synopsis upon request of his life & experiences to date and be assured folks...you are SAFE hands. As an Englishman, I was asking about snakes, spiders and anything else and Dru was extremely reassuring and knew so much about EVERYTHING in this wonderful country.

I would say the selling point of Life's an Adventure is that you you visit 'famous' spots/locations however, you see them from a completely different perspective and away from the beaten track and litter dropping crowds. This for me made my experience so special and I have some incredible images with lots of ingrained knowledge about the landmarks in the back of my mind for ever (although I do like the sound of the mountain bike tour which Drew leads so may go back next year!).

The picnic was truly delicious and there was even leftovers! Dru played the perfect host serving us chilled wine in a spectacular location with nobody else around.All you could hear was the wildlife in the valley below - It was perfect and an absolute MUST DO!

If you are looking for a truly memorable day which encompasses unrivalled views, great company, education about the region and the nature...and wish to learn few survival skills along the way; book this trip of a lifetime!

Thank you again.
