Mark gave an amazing tour! He went above and beyond to give us the best tour. He stayed on time while also giving us the chance to see the mountains and the rain forest. We would highly recommend this tour!
My husband and I had the most amazing time in Sydney and this trip was one of the highlights. I chose this package simply because it's a small group, and the price is reasonable compared with others. Being an introvert, this arrangement is the most suitable for me. Our trip began with a visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park. I appreciate that it was the first stop in our itinerary because we were the first group to arrive so we were able to enjoy walking around without bumping into crowds. The koalas are the cutest! Our tour guide, Mark, was great too. He had plenty of anecdotes to keep us company while travelling. Our next stop was the Blue Mountains. Frankly, this is just a wide landscape of well, mountains so level your expectations. We availed the additional scenic route for AUD 39 which consists of a ride in a cable car and a steep railroad plus a kind of walking trail. Then we headed off for lunch on quaint town before going into an off road hiking. I truly appreciate the spontaneity of it because it wasn't part of the itinerary. We went into a hill (I forgot the name) and the view was majestic. Also, the weather couldn't have been more perfect which made our little hike nice and easy. But I guess what I appreciate most in this tour is that Mark was able to accommodate my request to visit Lincoln's Rock. I'm glad we went there because it was gorgeous! That's probably one of the perks of small group tours-more flexibility. We really enjoyed our tour and we highly recommend this to everyone.
This was a fantastic trip. Every stop offered amazing views of a gorgeous scenery. As luck would have it, it was foggy at noon when we got to the main viewing platform for the 3 sisters. So, instead of taking the optional rides, I opted to take a hike through the rainforest, which turned out to be one of the best, most memorable experiences I've had. Caution - it's not an easy walk: It is very steep going down the slippery, muddy path, and even harder going back up, but if you don't rush and soak up the sights and sounds around you, you will have an amazing experience to look back upon. And, yes, half-way through my rainforest trek, the fog lifted, and I got amazing views of the waterfall, the gorge, and the 3 sisters. A huge part of how wonderful the trip turn out to be was thanks to our driver and guide Steve Kiwi: I did eight similar trips while in Australia, and Steve was by far the most friendly, intelligent, fun, engaging, and knowledgeable guide I encountered. In one day I felt like I've known him forever, as an old friend. Thank you so much, Steve!!! You rock!!
Steve was our tour guide. It was unlike most tours I have been on. It was like having a friend who was sharing his knowledge or the local area. Steve's intimate knowledge of the area, extremely friendly demeanor and expert timing for our tour made this tour a very enjoyable experience. All the wonderful sights and knowledge Steve shared with all of us was far beyond what I could have hoped for. My wife and I cannot give any higher recommendation. If you do this tour, you will not have any regrets.
We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and being a small group was a bonus. Our guide, Mark, really knew the area and took us to look-out points where there were hardly any other people. It would be better to have longer at the wildlife park but then it might limit the other activities - though we felt an hour was longer than needed for lunch. Finishing off with the river cruise and coming into Circular Quay with the sights lit up was a greatt finish.
It was a hectic day but Steve our guide was extremely knowledgable and with a great sense of humour. Would recommend travelling on the three rides in the blue mountains, not to be missed is the steepest railway. On the lunch stopover we had a lovely lunch in the Wisteria Cafe, others on our tour we're not as lucky, but we really enjoyed ours. The only thing I would not bother with is the Olympic Park stop. Is was a bit rushed and the 10 minute stop was insignificant. Good day.
Pick up was quick and easy. Steve was such an awesome tour guide, friendly and approachable. He made sure everyone on the bus felt welcome, even made it fun for the only child on board. The trip itself was so beautiful, stopping at all the right places. I would 100% recommend the tour.
Easy pick up near our hotel. Did on Good Friday so quite busy. Mark , our guide decided to do Blue Mtns first then go on to Wildlife Park - a good decision as traffic built up later. He was very knowledgeable and we did the main areas of Mountains without any holdups. Felt a little rushed on the Walkways but could understand why. Views were outstanding. Took us to another look out which was much quieter. Lunch in small town -lots of places to chose from.
Wildlife Park was very good , spent about 1 hour there. Drove through Olympic Village then on to boat pick up. Lovely trip back up the river to Sydney. Choice of drop off points - either Circular Quay or Darling Harbour.. Fantastic views of bridge and Opera House.
Would definitely recommend this trip. Full day but worth it , so much better than trying to do it independently .
This was an awesome day - Steve was a great Tour Guide with lots of interesting information. Would highly recommend this trip to the Blue Mountains.
