“Blue Mountains Day Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Very fun and all encompassing. Mark was knowledgeable of the area and the traffic. He got us to the very popular Featherdale Wildlife park early before the masses. Then to the mountains where he specialized our tour to miss the crowds. As someone who hikes often in the area, he was familiar to locales not full of other tour busses but still with spectacular views. As Supergran44 stated, the day was full and the best way to get to know Sydney in a day. One of the best decisions while in Australia was going on this trip. Fun for all ages and interests. Wear comfortable shoes and expect different weather in the Blue Mountains than in Sydney. Highly recommend.

“Fantastic experience in the Blue Mountains”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Everything was perfect except the weather but Mark our guide couldn't do anything about that. We were picked up promptly at 7.40 am outside our hotel and our first stop was at Featherdale Wildlife Park where we got an hour to see all the native animal species including dozens of wallabies and Koalas. Then up to the mountains for a couple of viewpoints before lunch in the town of Katoomba where the weather changed. Mark went to buy tickets for the cable cars and railways so we wouldn't have to wait. The wind got up and the temperature dropped to 6 degrees with a shower and even a snow flurry. My daughter and I were dressed in T shirts and shorts with just a light cardigan so we were freezing. My daughter borrowed Mark's hat, sweater and gloves and I just froze but I didn't care as the views were spectacular and he took us to viewing places where the other tours don't go. We were offered a choice of riding across the site or walking with Mark and he took us to three different viewpoints and a waterfall for photos giving us lots of information on the way. Then we walked down to the bottom with over 700 steps and caught an almost vertical train back to the top. We also stopped at a couple of viewing spots for photos on the way back. That wasn't all as he took us on a drive round the Sydney Olympic Site before dropping us at the wharf where we had a choice of a slow cruise with Captain Cook Tours back to the harbour or a quicker ferry if we were pushed for time. It was a brilliant day out and Mark was an excellent guide. If you are short of time it is a great way to see many sites in one day. We arrived back at the harbour at 7 pm exhausted but happy.

“Blue Mountain Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

My daughter and I had such a fabulous time on this tour. I loved the small group and the ability to meet people from all over the world. We had so much packed into the 11 hours which made it such a good value. I especially liked that we did a variety of activities before even going to the Blue Mountains which made the drive not so long. The opportunity to eat lunch on our own in the little town was great and we loved the opportunity to visit the animals at the Featherdale Park. The great ending to the day was the visit to Sydney Olympic Park and the boat ride back into the Sydney Harbor at sunset. Steve was a terrific host, keeping the conversation fun and light. I'd recommend this tour highly to those looking for something other than the big bus tours.
