When in Sydney and you want a low-frills, yet intimate Blue Mountains experience, go with the dry, yet quick witted Dave. He is a salty-rugged man, but funny and knowledgeable. With Dave, he is sure to offend and make jokes about everything and everyone. I really enjoyed his company & tour, I thought it was authentic and honest. Plenty of time to explore and you get to see a lot of interesting sights.

I would give zero stars if I could. They never showed up. This was to be a once in a lifetime experience and they didn’t even show up. Their phone numbers didn’t work either. Don’t waste your time.
It was the best Blue mountains tour .
Pam_C, Jun 2023
Our tour to the Blue mountains was so amazing made all the better by our tour guide Ken who was a mine of information. He was very well organised and the whole day was perfect. He chose a wonderful cafe in Katoomba for lunch. You can tell he has much experience at his job, he has been a guide for 30 years and virtually knew every tree along the way, so amazing . The mountains were gorgeous and just how it appears in all the advertising with crystal clear skies. We have done many tours all over the world and this one rates one of the best.
Must do Blue mountain private tour.

Great day away from the city, saw numerous things that a first time visitor to Australia would have no way to see as efficiently. Top notch guide that figured out how to curate our activities spot on. The animals, hiking in nature, the two spots for snacks/food, the scenic world location, all of it was a great time, despite the poor visibility on our day.
Mountains wonder
RUDOLF_R, Jun 2022
We had the best guide who send us to secret places to enjoy the most beautiful view to these impressive mountains! The cable cars are a must and it was wonderful! Lunch in very nice Irish style restaurant. We would like to do this tour again! Absolutely recommended!

The time at Katoomba between Scenicworld and the Blue Mountains Lookouts were something to remember for a long time, some of the best views ever.
Blue mountains with Dave
Lawrence_D, Feb 2020
Dave was a really great tour guide so much information about everything delivered with great passion and humour. He was particularly skilled at dealing with the more challenging participants of the group who could have easily, without his efforts spoiled the day for the rest of the group. All in all a great way to spend a day. Great boat trip back into Sydney harbour too.
Great day trip
Steve_V, Feb 2020
Great trip, nice driver, the zoo is way better and bigger than I expected. The mountains are beautiful
Fun day in the Blue Mns

A great day in spite of the smokiness with Petef who made the history come alive. He showed all all he could and made our full day fun including a delicious lunch in Leura. The kolas, little kangaroos etc all were a joy to see. It was a nice way to get out if Sydney for a day. Thanks to Peter it was a wonderful day.
Dave! The BEST Tour of Blue Mountains
Linda_M, Nov 2019
Dave was excellent. Let's just say, I've been on a few tours around the world and Dave may be the best tour guide I've had to date. He was professional, funny, informative and organized. He went through the itinerary first thing which covered everything in the tour offer. He changed the order of stops to miss the lines in the Blue Mountains which was very much appreciated. Again, EXCELLENT tour, book it!
Great experience
Pamela_S, Nov 2019
Dave was a personable and very knowledgeable tour guide. It is a perfect day trip, the sites are amazing and provide a great experience

Fast paced day but we packed a lot in..David was very knowledgeable and humorous. Nice size small group..
Great day out

Great tour but the hotel collection was a bit of a disappointment, I had to call the company the day before to check if they were collecting me from my hostel or somewhere close, there is an issue between the 3rd party booking agent and the company. The tour itself was fantastic and great guide/driver Dave. Loved the boat back to the city for the amazing views of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House
Fantastic Outing
Margaret_W, Oct 2019
Thank you Dave for being so organised, informative and friendly with your touch of wit! You stayed with the group and communicated easily with everyone. We felt we had sufficient time to see everything without pressure of being rushed. We really enjoyed the rides and walks around the Blue Mountains. Thank you Dave for an enjoyable day. Margaret and Jeanette
Best Tour of a 2 Week Trip!!
Alison C, Aug 2019
John was our tour guide for this day and it was amazing. Our favorite park was the Featherdale Wildlife Park. We were hoping to see one wombat and ended up seeing what was between 8-10!! All the animals looked healthy and happy. John managed the schedule well and had great stories and suggestions for everyone. We even met some friends from Hawaii that we ended up seeing on our Hobbiton tour in New Zealand later on so making new friends on the trip was an added plus for sure! John is truly the best in the business! The Blue Mountains were very busy that day but he still made everything work out which was a relief and he was nice to me and did not tease me for being terrified of heights and screaming in the cable car even though I probably deserved to be teased. I would take this trip a second time just for the fun of it!!
Good Value for Money
Manish_G, Aug 2019
Blue Mountains tour was great..!! Tour guide Dave was fantastic and provided and lot of information about the mountains and the local area in general. The rides at the blue mountain are a MUST DO. The zoo was OK.
Perfect day in the Blue Mountains
Wolfgang_L, Jun 2019
Gorgeous small Group trip to the blue mountains. We was with 7 paxes on this trip. It was a perfect day.
Blue Mountains - Gold!
Hayley_D, May 2019
We had Dave on our tour; he had a great dry Aussie sense of humour and was incredibly knowledgeable about Australia; the geography, the flora and fauna and animals... the tour was packed but did not feel too rushed, the Blue Mountains were fantastic, Featherdale was amazing, seeing all the indigenous animals and having my picture taken with a koala! There was time for lunch and also a visit to the Olympic stadium. I would highly recommend this tour, I was travelling solo as I was in Australia on business and felt v comfortable amongst the couples, families and other solo travellers on the tour!
