Spectacular sights. Interesting, knowledgeable and helpful guide. Excellent hiking experience. Figure 8 Pools hiking tour with Barefoot Down Under is a must-do in Sydney.

It was a great day getting to see one of the National Parks and also the majestic pools. A really neat experience! I recommend if you want to get out of the city for a day and see/experience something different as well as meet some new people.

One of the best tours. And one of the challenging one I had done so far. The hiking is not that easy. But it was worth trying. And the tour guide we had (paul) was one the best

It was a good day. It took me some time getting used to the tour guide's style because he stays true to himself and is not your typical tour guide. What I found very interesting was his safety advice because I learnt stuff that might come in handy one day. Lunch was very good. The Royal National Park has some nice coastal area. The Figure 8 Pools were fun but didn't fully live up to my expectations.
