This was a great tour!! Our driver Chris was very knowledgeable and a very good storyteller!! He knew a lot about Australian history!! He took us to great spots for wildlife and the Blue Mountains sunset.. saw Kangaroos in the wild!!! Highly recommend this tour but you must try and get Chris!!!!!
Great Views and Beautiful Country

Buck was an excellent and safe driver, friendly and knowledgeable guide. The tour went to some beautiful places especially Wentworth Falls. However there were a couple of minuses. Firstly the first hour was taken touring Central Sydney picking up. Secondly there was no chance to get a proper dinner just a quick supermarket stop and lastly the sunset was not at Sublime Point as advertised. It is not really a 10 hour tour. Overall though especially because of Buck we had a memorable experience.

Buck was a great tour guide and really had all the answer to the many questions he was asked. He was flexible when the restaurant was closed and had a plan b ready. We also had time to hike by ourselves, which I liked.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thanks a lot for your review, Buck will be thrilled to hear you had such a good day with him on the Blue Mountains Tour! Kind regards, Luis
Perfect day In The blue mountains.
Carrie_c, Feb 2023
I loved leaving later in the day because we were the only ones at all the sights. The mountains are gorgeous. Our tour guide was great. I loved every moment. Highly recommend booking. Also we met at one spot to start the tour so we didn’t spend hours picking up and dropping people off.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Hi Carrie, Thank you for your positive review, we're happy to hear you enjoyed the Blue Mountains and that it actually pays off to leave a bit later in the day (with an added bonus of being able to sleep in =D ). We'd be thrilled to see you again on one of our tours! Kind regards, Luis
Highly recommend!

Our tour guide Buck was so friendly and helpful. Despite some rain and cloudy weather he did his best to take us to some great view points to get the best visibility. He shared lots of information about Australia’s history and learnt lots of interesting facts. We stopped at a village for refreshments after about a 90 minute drive and then again about 6 hours into the tour at a restaurant that served burgers etc. we saw Kangaroos as well as a variety of birds and insects. Lots of different plant species too.

Walking through the mountains was stunning , Chris our guide tour operator was funny witty and awesome guy to spend the adventure with.
Worth the trip!
Rick_N, Dec 2022
It was a great afternoon and evening to see the blue mountains as you miss all the morning crowds. During the tour you get to stretch your legs and go for some great hikes down paths that are a bit challenging and gives you a great workout so bring a jacket and some good walking shoes but the views are so amazing! our Guide was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of info. Worth the trip!

Our tour guide (Rachel) was great. Even though the weather didn't cooperate she was able to provide a great narrative and views of the blue mountains.
Canceled last minute

Our tour was canceled the night before. It was too late to schedule another one to the Blue Mountains. It was the excursion in Sydney we were looking forward to the most.

Donna_I, Aug 2022
Jeff was exceptional! He was very informative and fun! Jeff made sure to explain everything as we did our walks in the the blue mountains park. The Sunset Tour was more than what we have expected. Thank you for the memorable experience.
Donna is the best guide
Suzan, Feb 2020
Our guide Donna was amazing, she gave facts about the region all the time during the trip. Stops were well chosen and not difficult to walk.
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Hi Suzan, and thank you for your review! We'll let Donna know your kind words :)
Great tour! Simple but worth it

Dona is incredible and the sunset incredible! Short tour if you dont want to wake up early in the morning and enough to have a great experience in the Blue Mountains
Great way to spend a day
Melanie J, Nov 2019
We went in early November. Because it's a sunset hike the earlier tour groups were gone so once we were at the cliffs looking at the Three Sisters, it was just our tour group. We had some run ins with nature, but not in a way that was scary. We saw a snake off the path and some spider hide outs. The weather was gorgeous and the sandwiches and fruit were just enough to give us energy for the hike. I would warn that while the hike isn't too difficult you do about six miles of walking, so you are on your feet a lot. I'd say it was worth it but an older woman did have some difficulty. Bring a light jacket with you because during the day it's warm but at night it cools down quite quickly. Our tour guide Donna was quite sweet and amicable.
Response from Host, Nov 2019
Hi Melanie, thank you for your feedback! it is good to hear you enjoyed your day. The walk might be a bit difficult if you are not really that fit; we will take that with us for our future bookings.
Should have been canceled
Julie_L, July 2019
It was one of the wettest days we had had on the trip with little visibility. Within the first hour the trip should have been cancel.We saw nothing at any of the stops and were wet the whole day.We could have done something better than sitting on a missed up bus that was playing up. A lot of money to be wet and cold and nothing to do or see.
Response from Host, July 2019
Hi there, and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are very sorry to hear the weather was not on your side on the day of the tour. We know that many travellers are able to travel only on a certain day, and therefore do our best to take them for a day out and make the most of it. We hope to see you again on our other tours, and have fingers crossed for some sunshine and warm breeze!
Amanda_R, June 2019
We had a great day, the stops are beautiful, the driver very friendly, good picnic lunch and confortable van. It was amazing!
Response from Host, June 2019
Hi there, and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! Amazing to hear that you enjoyed your day with us! We hope to see you again, perhaps in Sydney or Perth! :) Safe travels!
A lot of waiting around
Silja_V, Jan 2019
We left rather early (before noon) for a sunset experience and only visited two sites at the park and one at another sight where we started off with lunch. A lot of time was used on finding food and to see small villages instead of walking through the park. You really don’t need to be in any shape to keep up. However, the views were beautiful and the sunset to die for.
