Great tour with a guide who knew a lot and showed genuine interest in nature, history and social issues in Australia.
Very flexible and with good humour :-)
We had a wonderful time on our tour. Our guide was excellent and did his best to give us ample opportunity the see everything on a very rainy day in the Blue Mountains. Great tour!Reviewed by: Jerry M, April 2014
It was rainy, but still decent. Worth doing. Barely. But not a "wow" factor. Visit to cafe was pleasant. Blue Mountains were a little disappointing. Lunch was a bit subpar. Why is it that they force you to eat with all the other passengers and not at tables with your own family alone? It makes it very awkward. River cruise was pleasant but fair. Overall, it was fair. Best part of the whole trip was the Featherdale Wildlife Park.Reviewed by: M Kevin S, April 2014
I was a little disappointed with this tour, just because having heard so much about the Three Sisters I thought they would be somewhat larger and grander. The area is also far more built up than I expected, not giving the impression of being in a mountain countryside area at all. The township of Leura was lovely and the stop could have been longer if possible (the drivers apparently feed this back to the company regularly but without any changes to the itinerary). The highlight was for me, the trip back from Homebush by boat to Circular Quay allowing a wonderful opportunity to see all the riverside properties. Our driver for the day was very pleasant, but he lacked the personality and passion of other tour leaders I have experienced such as Tiffany on the Sistine Chapel Tour or Beau on the Food Tour both in Rome last year.
I certainly think that the area is worth seeing, but the day lacked a little something to make it a fabulous experience.
It was very disappointing as it was foggy all day and we didn't see a thing so I can't really rate it properlyReviewed by: Steven J, April 2014
