This was a wonderful experience. Truly breathtaking. Exceeding any expectation my wife and I had in advance of the day. We met Terry and Steve our guides just where they said we would along with one other member of the trip, two guides, three participants, not sure if this is typical, but the excursion is described as small and personal and that is just what it is.
Another great benefit of this trip is you start at lunchtime, well behind the crowds on the coaches, you miss all of the rush hour traffic, and visit all the locations after the coach crowds have gone
From the off, we were encouraged to chat to each other and the drive out to the mountains in a very comfortable mini van is long enough for everybody to get to know everyone else. Very inclusive.
Our journey out to the blue mountains included a short stop at the Olympic Park. Lucky for us as this stadium is due to be demolished soon for a replacement. Such is progress.
Camera’s ready. Terry is a photography expert, working in the industry, and if what you want to do is capture the day he is willing and able to pass on his wealth of knowledge no matter what your standard, from iPhone, through pointy shooty to sophisticated DSLR. He is also very willing to take shots of you and your group on your device, to make sure you capture all of the experience.
The views of the Jameson valley, Lincoln Lookout, Wentworth, Leura Falls, Cahill lookout and the Three Sisters and finally Echo Point lookout are breathtaking. Terry and Steve keep up a wonderful and informative commentary of each location. The cliffs, valleys, Eucalyptus, waterfalls, rocks, the three sisters themselves, Boars Head and lastly the sunset are beautiful, and the quiet serenity has to be heard to be believed.
“Ozzy” snacks are offered through the day but are not compulsory, Give them a go, it is part of the fun.
Being around the three sisters at sunset, watching the sun fall onto the treetops on mountains far away whilst the dark blue valley stretches before you at echo falls is just breathtaking.
Finally dinner is served before you wend your way back to Sydney with a beer if it suits. A lot chance to chat further and relax after a wonderful day. You’ll get back tired and fulfilled.
