Overall the experience was good. We had problems with the bus . It broke down but the tour guide handled it great. We did see all of the sights.
Leave Sydney and begin your day of exploration by journeying to the Blue Mountains National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Area. Known for its stunning display of natural beauty and vast rainforests clad in eucalypts trees, the Blue Mountains are over 100 million years old and span over thousands of hectares. The combination of the scorching Australian sun and fine oil mist from the eucalyptus leaves gives off a distinctive blue haze, earning The Blue Mountains their name. Your first stop is in the quaint town of Glenbrook, where you can enjoy a coffee or a quick snack before making your way to Euroka. Truly an authentic Australian experience, Euroka is campground near Glenbrook that is ideal for spotting native wildlife. Enjoy a picnic lunch here before beginning your guided walk to Wentworth Falls. Appreciate the stunning surroundings on this hour walk through the bush. Marvel at the s...
After travelling around on my own quite a bit, it was so nice to join a group! The guides Glen and Donna were great. They were very informative and entertaining. I’d highly recommend this trip for anyone wanting to explore the blue mountains!
Enjoy a small group photo tour of the Blue Mountains including sunset at Echo Point. This semi-private tour departs later so you can sleep in and avoid Sydney’s rush hour traffic. You'll stop at three amazing lookouts. Each lookout is just a short walk from the vehicle. Then listen to sounds of nature, the birds, and rushing water on two longer walks to some majestic waterfalls. Keen nature lovers will enjoy the 40-minute bush walk to Leura Cascades and a longer walk into Wentworth Falls. Those who would rather not join in the longer walks can choose to take a shorter walk or visit Scenic World for two hours. After the group reunites you'll visit two spectacular lookouts before returning to Echo Point to view the Three Sisters as the sun sets. The final remote lookout looks west over the Megalong Valley to watch the last rays of sunlight. Finally, relax at a local hotel and enjoy dinne...
Although I am much delayed in leaving this review, as I went on this tour last July, I had to take a moment to HIGHLY recommend this tour, or any with terry for that fact! In my trip to Sydney, this Blue Mountains tour was by far one of the BEST, if not the best experience I had while there. From the friendly, small group environment (which is a lovely way to make some new friends, and I found to be so fun!), to Terry's promptness (he showed up at my hotel right on time, with a smile, even AFTER I had booked the tour quite last minute!), to his thoughtfulness and knowledge (especially of Photography! This is a huge bonus, and I left with the most incredible photos from the day) as well as the incredible opportunity to learn so much from Terry about general information/Australia, truly made for a day I will likely not ever forget. No other tour I have been on anywhere in the world gave me the anything near the quality of this enriching, personalized experience I got with Terry

The excursion was well organized and the guide scored with lots of information. You should be physically fit, as the hike is exhausting, especially at high temperatures.
Spectacular! Very special! Take clothes to change if it‘s raining and no white shoes! If it‘s raining, they get so dirty, that you have to throw them away, like I did :(
The tour was amazing! Glenn was an amazing tour guide. Very friendly. The hike was incredible and one of the best tours I’ve been on.
