Great tour, organisation and excellent guide Katja. Explanation about everything we saw was great. Great driver and positive personality.
Picked Up The Wrong Michael
Michael_L, Mar 2024
This could have been an excellent tour. But the guide picked up the wrong people at my hotel leaving us standing there for a while until I called the tour operator. They eventually came back and picked us up but this put the tour behind schedule. Adding to the time issue was the Good Friday traffic. We were not able to do all we wanted to do on the tour and we got back ~3 hours late eliminating other plans we had for late afternoon / evening.
5 Star Experience
ROBERTO_A, Mar 2024
Blue Mountains is amazing. Katya, our driver/tour guide was great, so knowledgeable about the area and very nice. Best burger I had in Australia for our lunch break. Great experience.
Great Hike and Wildlife Tour
Corinne_L, Mar 2024
Yella was terific, he picked made sure everyone was happy with the tour and paced everyone when hiking Blue Mountains. Yella gave us the option to separate from the group and hike a different trail that was more difficult for most on the group. We saw quite a bit of waterfalls and had a great day hiking the harder trail. We also saw penguins, koalas and and kangaroos at Featherdale. We were able to pet the Joeys!! Definitely a must do for those who enjoy hiking!!

Don_P, Mar 2024
The Guide was great. She loved her job and made everyone feel comfortable. She made sure that everyone could handle the sometimes steep uphill climbs so that we all got to see the best sights. The scenery was awesom even though there were showers throughout the day and some low fog.
Good small Group Tour
Richard_M, Mar 2024
Great tour of the Blue Mountains. Small group tours are the best. Guide was both knowledgeable and personable. Would have liked to have spent more time in one of the villages in the area to see the different shops.
Great way to experience Australia away from huge tours!
Chris_H, Feb 2024
On the morning of my tour, Sydney was experiencing torrential rains. Despite hopes that the rain/fog/mist would eventually lift, unfortunately that was not to be - in spite of this, Jelle did his best to ensure people felt like they got their money's worth from the day. Understanding that he was offering a tour that advertises hikes, Jelle came up with a plan to allow anyone who wanted to do a hike the opportunity to do so. Fortunately, myself and one other person on the tour that day were up for the adventure and we were dropped off with instructions at the start of a trail - he thought it would take us about 90 minutes, and sure enough myself and the other hiker got to the end of the trail, where the rest of the group was waiting, in about 100 minutes (we stopped a few times along the route to take in what we were able to see through the fog). While that ended up our only hike of the day (though an offer for a second hike was on the table if we wanted to do it), I appreciated that the weather, plus a tour group featuring a number of people who may not have been up for hiking even in ideal weather (it's an open question whether a few of them even glanced at the tour description), were largely to blame. I've got no regrets about taking this excursion (no one can control the weather, and it made for a "fun" story!) and have no doubt that with better weather, this would be extremely enjoyable. You do stop at Featherdale Wildlife Park which seems to be a popular spot for many tours given its location en route to the Blue Mountains, but after that we were in spots away from the bigger tour buses, which is something to appreciate for sure. Absolutely would recommend this excursion to others, BUT ONLY IF YOU'RE OPEN TO THE IDEA OF HIKING! If you just want to leisurely see the sights, book something that will just drive you around all day so you can look at things. For those that want to get out and experience this part of the world you likely wouldn't otherwise experience, it's a great choice.
Dingo tours way to go!!
roriburke, Feb 2024
We had an amazing day with Katja as our guide. She was very knowledgeable and curtailed our tour as requested. The day started out foggy so Katja had to quickly adjust our route thankfully the skies cleared up as the day went on so we were able to view all!! I highly recommend this tour and Katja!!

The tour guide was great. He was very patient with us. Took us to out of the way places, showed us some amazing hikes and outstanding views. I would highly recommend!
Highly recommend
Charles_L, Feb 2024
Dune, our tour guide, is amazing. Attention to details including water, finding great parking, bathroom breaks, getting us in ahead of crowds, taking us to special stops and a fantastic restaurant for lunch. He has a wealth of knowledge and very entertaining- highly recommend!!
Guide Jello excellent!
Talana_M, Jan 2024
Blue Mountains- beautiful journey with guide Jello. Very knowledgeable and fun. You will enjoy the scenery of the trip with amazing views.
Great value, Tremendous experience
Michael_W, Jan 2024
Thoroughly enjoyed the drives to and each tour destination. Our guide, Dune, was warm and engaged on a personal level with each of his 10 guests. He insured fairness in seating by rotating who sat where in the van to ensure each couple had the opportunity to sit in the preferred seating. Great exercise, views, lunch, and a treat for the ride back to Sydney.

Kristi_M, Jan 2024
Our guide was great. The weather was rainy, so we didn't get to "see" many of the sights through the rain, but that wasn't his fault. There was an accident on the highway, so we didn't eat at the normal lunch place, but the back up had tasty food.
A magnificent day in a magnificent mountain
jane, Jan 2024
A great option to get away from the crowds. Really enjoyed the hikes off the beaten track in the magnificent mountain range. I was fascinated by the insight into how the eucalyptus forests bounced back (not all the wildlife though, sadly) after the 2019-2020 mega wildfires across Australia and into the fire management practices of the aboriginals.
Blue Mountains a must when visiting Sydney
Carol_S, Jan 2024
Despite bad weather our guide Katia was super attentive and we had a wonderful day trip to Blue Mountains. The scenery and walks were spectacular
Cartier is excellent

Very good memory, my wife enjoyed to take up many pictures. I love to visit always mountain and i prefer to visit here next time.
Well worth it.

Excellent guide. Beautiful scenery. Getting early to the animal park was essential. We stayed ahead of the crowd all day.
