Was a very good tour well catered for at times felt rushed but this was OK as so much was squeezed into the tour.

We are very disappointed to see so many reviews landing on our business page when they are clearly not meant for us. Unfortunately we can not do anything about this. Our business has no affiliation with this reviewer. More

We arranged our half day 4WD guide at very short notice. Katie was efficient and obliging. She engaged Mark who was excellent, his love of the bush lands is patent and we visited secluded spots that we would not have found ourselves. Was well worth the expense as it added a new dimension to our visit to the area. They... More

Katie and Daryl (and Gracie) were extremely accomodating and helpful when arranging our family's hike while in Sydney to attend a wedding. They helped coordinate our train timetable, met us in Katoomba and guided us to delicious pies before we set off into the Canyon. Daryl and Gracie were very informative and the views were spectacular. A very delicious barbeque... More

When folks ask my husband and I about our honeymoon in Australia, I always start by describing our hike in the Blue Mountains where we got to sleep in a field of kangaroo, wallaby, wombat, wild horses, giant lizards and glorious birdsong! We were incredibly well taken care of by Blue Mountain Guides - Katie sent us off with delicious... More

I was in Sydney for two weeks and wanted to experience a real Australian bush hike.

The last minute booking was handled by Katie expertly, and we met Daryl at the station. We got shown around the local overlooks before heading to the Glow Worm Tunnel. The old railwail tunnel was surrounded by beautiful tree ferns and gum trees - on the way we even ran into a pair of lyre birds. The worms were twinkling... More
