Absolutely a fantastic trip. This...

Absolutely a fantastic trip. This was a private tour, with a initial stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park before the bused crowds appeared. Out guide and driver, Lindsay, was knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the trip. He made two off roads stops for spectacular views, again without large numbers of people as the tour buses could not go there. Our lunch was at a very refined restaurant set on the cliffs of the gorge. Although it was a bit pricey, my wife and I felt the Blue Mountains trip was the highlight of our 25 day Australian adventure.
Justin was a great tour guide. The Blue Mountains were beautiful and Justin made sure that we were able to see them from many vantage points. The food at Echos was perfect and the view from our table was amazing. We even made an extra stop at a cultural center to see an educational show and learn some of the history of aboriginals. Featherdale Wildlife Park was a really nice stop. Seeing all of the different animals and having some time with a koala bear was nice too. The enclosures were not overly enclosed, so the animals were very visible and some were completely free roaming. The stop for morning tea at the Botanical Gardens was at a beautiful locations and the walking paths through the different plants were beautiful.
Paul tour guide was great. Ferndale WIldlife Park was excellent - close to animals - hand fed kangaroos - posed for picture with koala. Tour was not exactly as described, but differences were fine. Blue Mountain stops were good, most picturesque spots.
