Full Day Sydney Tour with Opera House and The Rocks Tour
Great day tour of Sydney
, Feb 2020
Great way to get an overview of Sydney. Our driver Peter T was great. Was very knowledgeable on the history of Sydney. We had a very rainy day but Peter made the most of it for us. Added several sites along the way as we were not always able to get out at all of the scheduled stops. Kept everyone entertained. Can't say enough good about him. The lunch cruise totally exceeded our expectations for the quality of the food. I would highly recommend this tour.
In spite of it being a very rainy day; our guide, Jason, made it a wonderful tour. He had to deal with some “difficult” passengers, and he was able to take care of matters graciously. Jason walked us to our destinations when necessary so we always felt looked after. We saw a great deal of Sydney on this tour. Very worthwhile.

All Inclusive Full-Day Blue Mountains Trip from Sydney
Very enjoyable all inclusive tour
, Feb 2020
Very nice tour and great value for the money. Guide was a bit aloof or depressed with stories of people or animals dying or afraid to die. But after lunch explained that he was having health issues in the morning and feeling much better. He then became more engaged and his sense of humor improved. He was excellent with instructions and directions, letting everyone know meeting places, what to do, etc. Really enjoyed the wonderful vistas of the 3 sisters and short hikes. Timing was perfect considering all that the tour included. Overall a wonderful tour if you don’t mind having limited time for activities as a trade off for all the inclusions. We always felt relaxed. Great tour and value which we recommend without hesitation.
We had a fabulous tour with Graham as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and prompt. This tour enabled you to see as much as possible in the day. The koala sanctuary and feeding the wallaby’s was our favorite. Lunch included was very good, and scenic world was fun. You can hike a longer path or take a short one at scenic world. Fabulous day.

I am pleased to represent the people who took this tour. Our guide was interesting, had much information to share and made the tour a great success with his anecdotes. We feel that he is an excellent tour guide. We stopped at many sites that we had heard of but would not have been able to find them in a day with such interesting commentary. We were a party of 4 adults and enjoyed having our guide to ourselves. His VW van was comfortable and had free wifi! We highly recommend this tour and our excellent tour guide. Thank you for making our tour a great success.

Port Stephens Day Tour with Dolphin Watching, Sandboarding & Australian Wildlife
wonderful tour guide Peter T
, Jan 2020
I had an excellent day trip with a very caring and funny tour guide Peter T. Everything is on track and I enjoyed all the activities.The only pity part is that I only saw 2 dolphins that day... but even without dolphins, the sea view is so fantastic and definitely worth seeing.
My husband and I went on this excursion yesterday and it was excellent! Not only did John S show us some tricks to navigating Sydney before leaving toward Port Stephens, he explained the history of each area in a way that keeps everyone's interest. The reptile park was fun, but my two highlights of the tour were dolphin watching and sand boarding. (Note that the reptile park does have many native species including koala, not just reptiles!) John S. gave us some food selection and dolphin watching tips which proved to be imperative in maximizing our experiences at Port Stephens. John S. also gave us great food suggestions for Sydney including a great Japanese pub that was one of highlights of our time in the city. We also had a great time sandboarding despite me being a bit afraid of heights. This is an excellent excursion and if you have the chance to do so (especially with John S.), definitely check this out!
I liked this trip. It as been a great guide, who took very good care of us and could teach us a lot of the surrounding. We have been very lucky and saw many dolphines and even a sea turtle. For My personal Feeling, I think the Timing was very tight. We could not even stop for toilettes, but needed to use the Toilette in the Bus and I like rather smaller Groups. We have been 38 People. If you dont mind that, I would give even 4 out of 5 stars.

Blue Mountains day tour includes our popular breakfast in the Aussie bush
Amazing day !
, Jan 2020
We visited the Blue Mountains with this tour. I was worried about the timing of our trip (January 2nd, amid the bushfires and the peak in holiday season), but the guide managed this perfectly. We were a group of 23 people only, and amid the huge busses visiting the places, this is a really small group.
While driving to the Mountains, we got a lot of very interesting information from Sean, about the history of the places, about the flora and fauna, and about the actual situation with the terrifying bushfires. It was clear that Sean knew what he was talking about, and the small stories about his childhood growing up in the area, made it all very personal and touching. The national park where breakfast originally was planned, was closed due to the fires, but they had set up a great barbecue breakfast in a local park. Sean timed the visits to the different places such that we each time arrived before the crowds, so we got to see wild kangaroos, had lunch in time, visited the small rainforest and the Featherdale park when it was not (yet) too crowded. He stopped the van along the side of the road to explain us the impact and the scale of the actual fires and compared them to 'more normal' fires etc etc. It was really amazing! At the end of the day, we were guided to a shuttle boat, and we enjoyed a lovely 40 min cruise/ride over the river back into Sydney.
Nothing could have been better! We really loved this trip and it's one of our highlights of our holidays. Thanks Sean! And take care!!
Our Blue Mountain tour was amazing! We were picked up right on time in a nice clean van. Unfortunately there was fog/haziness during our tour so we were unable to visualize anything at Scenic World. We loved seeing the kangas, wallaby, cockatoo and magpies during our delicious breakfast. I would have loved to stay longer than 1 hour at Featherdale but otherwise everything was perfect!
We had a wonderful time going to the blue mountains. No kangaroos at breakfast due to drought and dingo presence but breakfast was wonderful non the less.
Scenic World was interesting but the animal sanctuary was the best!
All around, Sean made this an enjoyable day.
Would highly recommend.
Head into the Blue Mountains with this small group tour from Sydney. Visit Featherdale to see koalas, kangaroos, crocodiles, and more incredible animals.

Hire your own private tour guide and driver for a half or full day in Sydney. There is no set itinerary and prior to your departure, your guide will create a bespoke itinerary for you or your group. Sit back and relax or choose an active day with plenty of time outside of the vehicle as your experienced guide showcases you this world class city. You will be picked up and dropped off from the airport, cruise port or local hotel. In addition to local city tours, your guide can take you on day trips outside of the city to hotspots such as the Blue Mountains or Hunter Valley wineries.
Lots included in this trip. All rides at Scenic World, admission to Featherdale. I wish we'd skipped the town and spent more time at Featherdale (actually, we could've spent the entire day there!). Also, a river cruise into Sydney was supposed to have been included but didn't happen for some reason. I was disappointed. But the van was comfortable and Peter was endlessly solicitous with my 80-year-old parents, providing alternate ways to access attractions, etc. Very kind and helpful. Also very quick to answer messages. I would not hesitate to book this tour!
...and book with PJ. He is extremely knowledgeable about each of the attractions that we went to. So much so, that he impressively predicts the ebb and flow of tourist traffic so that we were never stuck in a line or a traffic jam. He's funny and personable, and just an all around good guy to be around. If you want an impersonal tour with a lot of people, book elsewhere. If you want an intimate tour with a small group, then book with PJ.
See more of New South Wales with a small-group tour of the Blue Mountains with visits to Fetherdale Wildlife Park and Scenic World.
