Had a great hike in the Blue Mountains. Happy to have such a small group of only 4 hikers, along with 2 guides. Both guides were extremely friendly, knowledgable, and passionate about the outdoors. We were picked up and delivered back to our hotel near Sydney Harbor. Everything was on time, with no unexpected problems. The hike itself was pretty strenuous, which was exactly what we wanted, to weed out those who weren't serious about hiking, and those who were out of shape. Overall, I would rate this as an excellent activity while in the Sydney area.
Brilliant day. Drew (the guide) was excellent, he knew the area, the mountains and knew how to show us the best bits. There was only 4 guests in the 4x4, which made the trip memorable as we went off road, and were not stuck in a mini bus all day. The day was disrupted due to maintenance on the planned hike route, so Drew took us to another location, which was a real bonus as the sights and the hike we had was far more interesting than we expected. He even carried a brew kit and made us all a cup of tea at the lunch stop. Nice touch. Absolutely recommended in every aspect, and ask for Drew as a guide.
Our tour guide Lisa was amazing. She was extremely nice and very accommodating. The weather was bad that day (my fault for booking a date in the fall) but the waterfalls were still a breathtaking sight. Lisa took us up close to them, even had lunch by one. She was very knowledgeable about plants and wildlife in the park. She took time to explain all the interesting things we pass. When the hike was over Lisa generously drove us to a look-out point overlooking the Blue Mountain Three Sisters, which was not part of the itinerary. I can't praise the service enough. They definitely gave us our money's worth.
Excellent - small group - knowledgable guide (Dean) and a reasonably challenging walk in beuatiful scenery.
We had a wonderful day hiking in the Blue Mountains. Our guide was excellent. She was very knowledgable about the local area and pointed out many interesting things along the path. We have plenty of time to linger for photo opportunties and enjoy lunch at the waterfalls.
Really enjoyable day, great views and lovely guide, will be back to do it again.
This is the best way to see the Blue Mountains if you want a more unique experience. The group is very small (no big motorcoach) and made up of active travelers. The hiking can be hard in some spots (be sure to have good shoes) but was very thrilling. We had a nice hike out, then a great lunch on the top of Ruined Castle – which is a huge outcrop of boulders with incredible 360 degree views of the area. Our guide was great, pointing out things along the way – and pausing for spotting the wildlife, etc. Everything was taken care of from the hotel pick-up to the tram tickets to a great lunch. If you want a great Blue Mountain hike to a unique destination without the crowds – this is the tour to take!
The weather unfortunately didn't play it's part, The guides, and the overall level of service whent along way to making up for it :)
Will not leave you blue! Spectacular location with a knowlegable fun guide. You need to be able bodied though and not too bothered by heights.
