Had an amazing day with my girlfriend and guide Stewart doing the Empress Falls canyoning and waterfall abseil! Started the day with a course in abseiling which was very helpful in preparing us for the actual abseil during the canyon. Stew was a very helpful and knowledgeable guide, teaching us the correct techniques and safety procedures to get us comfortable... More

My partner and I did the Grand Canyon abseiling/canyoning tour two days ago - we were blown away not only by the beauty of the canyon but by the team at Blue Mountains Adventure Company. Our guide's name was Dan and his knowledge of the Australia bush and his calm, helpful attitude was just amazing - we felt very safe... More

Went abseiling and canyoning at the Empress Falls with BMAC. Tim and Big Dog Cal were very professional and made the experience relaxed, enjoyable and safe. Fantastic day to do with a partner or friends and the abseiling down the waterfall is AMAZING!! Can't wait to come back and pick a different adventure.

BMAC have cool guides that will go out of their way to make you discover the natural wonders of the region in a different, sporty manner. We planned to let them guide us for one day but ended up staying with them for three full days. Each day was a good experience and we felt safe under their guidance, experiencing... More

I was genuinely delighted to read your review. Thanks so much! I feel like it is easy for us to give a great experience on a single day, but to pull it off three days back to back with the same guest shows that the trips we offer, the team we've got and the experience you get is really solid....

My husband and I did the beginner Boar's Head abseiling tour a few days ago with BMAC. The trip and views were AMAZING! BMAC provided all of the gear (which was well maintained) and definitely practiced safety first. I never felt in danger or unmonitored -- very personal service from our guide. This was definitely an extreme adventure, and although... More

It’s great to get feedback on what we’re doing well and where we could do better. We’re glad to know you had a great day out and we delivered on most of your expectations. However, we are sorry about our communication around the lunches. Lunches on our half day experiences are an optional extra, and we’ll certainly have to have... More

We had a great time canyoning through Jugglers Canyon. It was more challenging than expected and far exceeded our expectations. Our guide Ryan was sensational - very encouraging and ensured we all made it through. His passion of nature was evident and the knowledge he shared about the region was almost as entertaining as the canyoning.

Thanks Abdul. Ryan's a great guide that we wished could work for us more often, but he's in demand. And for good reasons: as you've outlined! We hope the challenging nature of the experience didn't lead to too many aches and pains the day after your adventure. But better to be sore than underwhelmed we think! More

BMAC gave us that extra attention that made this holiday celebration special. No end of encouragement and patience to help the whole family through abseiling and canyoning challenges. Our guide Dan even carried our young daughters heavy pack halfway back up the mountain on the return. To cap it all off they eagerly helped me sneak in a birthday cake... More
