Great host
Emily_H, Mar 2023
Dave was an amazing host, he had a snacks, wifi, chargers and took great photos. We were unable to see the rainforest due to flooding but the waterfall was very beautiful. The pie shop was a tasty stop.
Highly Recommended
Roylyn_A, Mar 2023
The most memorable experience we had in Sydney. Dave made sure we had a great time, he even stopped when he saw an Echidnas on the road so we can get close to it. He even offered to take photos. We visited 2 magnificent waterfalls too. True to its description, we had a close encounter with wombats and kangaroos. Dave made sure too to fill our stomach. The Robertson Pies, snacks and the kangaroo burgers were awesome. Plus factor, he dropped us in our CBD hotel after the tour.
Amazing tour

What a tour!
Christine_A, Feb 2023
From the pickup point to the final drop off, our tour guide Dave and this tour were incredible! The experience started with an hour and half bus ride and a tasting at a winery and on to see waterfalls and national parks with a stop for some fabulous meat pies. We ended the tour with a visit to Kangaroo Valley to get up close and personal with kangaroos and wombats. Dave also grilled some great chicken and burgers for our dinner. We highly recommend this tour if you want to see the wildlife and scenery outside of Sydney.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thanks for leaving such a kind review! We're glad to hear that you had an amazing time with myself and the other guests on the tour. It's great to know that you enjoyed the wine tasting at the winery, the breathtaking waterfalls and national parks, and the delicious meat pies. We're thrilled that you got to see some kangaroos and wombats up close in Kangaroo Valley, and that Dave's grilling skills hit the spot with the tasty chicken and burgers. Thank you for recommending our tour to others. We appreciate your support and look forward to hosting you again in the future for another unforgettable tour experience
Fun & Relaxing Day
Catherine_L, Feb 2023
My husband and I had a great day on this tour. We made numerous stops but never felt rushed. Dave was an incredible host - he feeds you well all day long and brings along anything you might need. The two walks we took provided awesome views without being too strenuous. The barbeque and wildlife viewing at the end of the day was great.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you for sharing your positive experience with us, Catherine! It sounds like you and your husband had a fantastic time on the tour, and that Dave was an incredible host who made sure you were well taken care of throughout the day. I'm glad to hear that the multiple stops were enjoyable and that the walks provided stunning views without being too strenuous. The barbecue and wildlife viewing at the end of the day must have been a great way to end the tour. Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to write this review. We're glad to hear that you had a great day on the tour!

OOOh noo you forgot to grab the last of the ANZAC biscuits! pleasure to have you and Wilma onboard. Safe travels Dave
A Must-Do in Sydney!
Stephanie_M, Dec 2022
A must-do! Fantastic experience! Dave is great, even if he still hasn’t seen My Cousin Vinny! He has loads of snacks (try the vegemite & cheese sandwich) and drinks for all, and the barbecue he whips up is delicious. The sights are amazing and the kangaroos put on a fantastic show for us, and who doesn’t love an adorable wombat? I’d do this tour all over again!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
HAHA I'll watch it as soon as Netflix has it.... Thanks for the fun day. yes so adorable everyone should meet a wombat!! happy days Dave

Dave was a great guide and made sure everyone was comfortable. He was also very knowledgeable and cooks a great burger!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks Melinda. It really is just the secret burger sauce. Hope the rest of the girls trip was amazing. Dave
Amazing tour for wildlife and nature lovers!
Michaela_B, Dec 2022
I loveeeddd this tour. Dave was an amazing guide who was super welcoming and created a really chatty, comfortable and fun atmosphere. He took us to some brilliant, beautiful spots from Sydney which I would have never thought to go by myself. The waterfalls we saw were stunning! Dave has great knowledge about the local wildlife, and I felt so lucky to see up close wombats and kangaroos, as well as chancing upon a snake and lyre bird (doing the mating call - which I never thought I would ever experience). This tour is all inclusive so all food is provided, including a yummy pie, van snacks and drinks, evening bbq and wine/beer/soft drinks too. As the tour went into the late evening Dave made sure to drop us all back to where we were staying which was great. 100% recommend!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Wow, Thanks Michaela!!! Such a fun group to take exploring for the day. We definitely saw a lot of different wildlife plus the black cockatoos that are quite rare. Yep I'll keep you well feed also. Thanks again for a super review! Dave
Wild and sweet!
Ronald_K, Dec 2022
Dave did an excellent job managing a long day and giving us all wonderful memories. Being able to interact with the wild animals in the evening was a special treat.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Cheers Ronald, Had a great day showing off a beautiful region of Sydney to you and Faye. We guarantee you get close within 2m to the wombats on this tour. With the kangaroos its less predictable 5-20m. Happy Days Dave
One of the best tours!
Isaac_S, Dec 2022
Amazing tour! It's a late start but felt like we saw so much. As well as seeing lots of wombats and kangaroos we had some incredible views along the way. The hospitality on the tour was also 5 star as we were well fed and a very social atmosphere was created
Response from Host, Dec 2022 Cheers Isaac! Much appreciated. What a super group to show around. Definitely plenty of food to be had and a lot of Ozzie foods only foods, kangaroo, tim tams, pies, lamington and ANZAC biscuits. Best of luck in the Cup!!! Dave
good experience
Graeme_R, Nov 2022
To see true wild wombats was excellent. Not as many kangaroos as expected but thats wildlife. Long time on the minibus but cant complain over food provided
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Cheers Graeme, thanks for the review. 1.5hr traffic jam due to roadworks on the way home was definitely way to long in the van, 2hr trip turned into 3.5hrs. Happy Days Dave
Great experience 👍🏻
Linda_R, Nov 2022
David was a superb tour guide. He was kind, considerate and knowledgeable and made an already great trip all the better. I have a nut allergy and gluten sensitivity and he went out of his way to make sure I was ok and had many food options. Highly recommend!!!
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thanks Linda, Yes I can cater for gluten free and vegetarian. Thanks for taking the time to write some lovely words. Dave

Wombats & Kangaroos
sknape56, Nov 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed our Wild Wombat & Kangaroo Tour. It was a great way to spend our day in Australia and Dave, our host, had anticipated our every need. He was able to create an authentic Aussie experience - from the meat pies, kangaroo kabobs, and crocodile sausage that he fed us to our new favorite cookie TimTams. We saw several beautiful waterfalls and landscapes but the true show stealers were the wombats & kangaroos. Just as he predicted, they put in their appearance starting at dusk. We photographed numerous wombats & kangaroos who were more than happy to ignore us following them around. I cannot recommend this tour enough- fun for all ages.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thanks you. Yep you'll get to try all the ozzie classics on this tour, plus meet a few of the 2 and 4 legged locals at dusk like clock work. The waterfalls are so amazing all year round and at over 300ft happy to hear you had a great day! Dave
Excellent Adventure
James_O, Oct 2022
The entire adventure from start to finished was wonderfully hosted, entertaining and educational. David is a superstar and aims to please his guests.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thanks James for leaving an excellent review. Much appreciated. Perfect Day Sydney Dave
Exceptional! No regrets joining this tour!
Harvinder_C, Oct 2022
Dave, the tour operator, was brilliant through out with his friendly service and picked some amazing national parks as part of the route with exceptional waterfalls and natural wild life. He was very informative with good detailed knowledge of local wild life. The final stop at the kangeroo valley with wombats was made better by.... a bbq and some beers for us to enjoy. Could not have asked for a more perfect end to a trip in Sydney. Guaranteed that no other tour operator will provide the same level of service and places to see on the route. The only draw back is that he has never seen the movie "My Cousin Vinny" but there is time to change that.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
WOW thanks Harvey for taking the time and writing an exceptional review for other travelers. Yes this tour explores a region no other operator go. Gad you enjoyed all the sites and National Parks we visit. I hope to watch vinny this weekend! Happy travels Dave Perfect Day Sydney
Great variety of experiences and exposure to local food and wildlife!
Brent_S, Dec 2020
Dave (guide and organizer) was amazing and it was a perfect start to our Australia vacation. Interaction with wombats was an experience we will never forget.
