based on 78 reviews

We were hesitant to book a tour. We like flexible exploring and hate crowds. This tour was just right for us. There were 18 people, and it didn’t feel too crowded. We got to see natural spots and even caught a kangaroo napping in the e shade. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly without going overboard. The hike to the bottom of the falls was physically challenging (actually the hike back up was challenging). We hiked at our own pace and I never felt like I was rushed. Some people skipped the harder part of the hike and others took two different paths. Overall a good day out of the city!

Our tour guide, Steve, was so amazing, funny and informative. The whole day he was telling us about the history of everything we were seeing, random little tidbits while keeping it interesting and making us laugh along the way. The sights were amazing and you definitely got to see all the highlights of the blue mountains. I feel there’s a lot more to see there but if you only have one day, this tour is a great option. Also very well organised and on time throughout the day! Thank you Steve!!

This tour was a blast!! Chris was the funniest, knowledgeable, interesting guide I ever had. His stories are the best and he will take you to places other tours won’t go as well as the common sights at slightly off times, hence you can enjoy more peace and quiet. Book this tour and just enjoy this fun ride. You can check him out on yt too! Raman hunter is his tag. He is really really great!

Our guide Amy has a great knowledge of Australian history and wildlife. The sunset tour took us to some amazing places that are burnt into my minds eye besides getting some great photos. We saw waterfalls, canyons, kangaroos and beautiful bird life. We were lucky with the weather and did see a beautiful sunset.

Wonderful trip and reasonable price, totally worth it! The guide Steve was knowledgeable and also a good driver.
