      Excellent day out, highly recommend
      My sister and I joined this group tour Feb 2024 and had an incredible time. We were spoiled with delicious wines and food throughout the day, and we were even lucky enough to see wild kangaroos! Our driver was very courteous and communicated everything clearly. The group size was perfect, not too small, not too big.

      Hunter Valley tour
      What a fabulous all day tour! Our driver/guide, Branko, was 5 star. The day is broken up with rest stops and it’s an easy pace stopping at 2 wineries, then lunch and final wine tasting followed by the distillery nice small group of about 15, Branko was friendly, informative, played great music and a careful, safe driver. I was worried about the long day but it was great. Nice way to enjoy the countryside and learn about the local wines. Your company quickly responded to my questions and the meeting place was easy to find and very timely! Thank you. I highly recommend this experience!

      We are a Brazilian couple and we’ve had an amazing experience. The tour was really cool full of information and a nice amount of tastings. The van got on time, the driver was really nice and helpful. Recommended.

      A wonderful day!
      We had a great time on this tour! It covered everything you could want to see in the Blue Mountains! Our tour guide was Ronnie and he was fantastic! So funny and engaging. We loved Featherdale and seeing the animals and he took us to all the best hikes/lookout points in the mountains. We also had time to explore the towns in the area. I looked at a lot of tour options and I’m so glad we booked this one! Highly recommend!

      Amazing experience
      I absolutely loved the trip. Peter was very funny & knowledgable. The day was well planned and we had a good amount of time at every location. I was worried there would be too much sitting around but the timing was perfect for me. The views were incredible. Peter helped us take lots of pictures and made an effort to include everyone. I thought the cost was great considering it’s a long day, with stop offs and lunch. Thank you 🤩 The document does mention that you need to be reasonably fit so that is something to bear in mind, as there are lots of steps

      Long day but good experience.
      The Iron Gate winery and the cheese and distillery tasting were great. We didn’t like the chocolate tasting as much because it seemed like the winery guide was more interested in selling than guiding. Our driver Tom was great and went the extra mile.

      The best mountain tour so far
      The guide from our group (Chris, if I'm not mistaken) was a very polite, smiling and truly good-natured person. He always answered our questions with pleasure. He knows very well the most beautiful tourist spots in the Blue Mountains. He always encouraged us, such as walking up stairs or walking along narrow paths. I highly recommend.

      Hunter Valley wine tour
      Nice tour of the Hunter Valley wine region. The wines and spirits tastings were ok. Our wine tastings with Terry and Eliza were the best. A long day and may be disappointed if you’ve been on other wine tours in CA or Europe.

      You won’t be disappointed.
      Our guide Branco made our day incredibly wonderful. He went above and beyond to make sure we had an adventurous and fun day. He showed us extra aspects of the trip others hadn’t seen. We liked how he took the time to patiently wait for people and help others to get the best views safely on our tour. The scenery was breathtaking. My family and I can’t quite talking about it!

      A lovely experience of Hunter Valley
      The tour was very good, the wineries chosen were fab, each gave an informative experience… the lunch was delicious. Our driver was a real character, which made the day a little more special, very pleasant & patiently waited for me when G.Maps confused me with my pick up point, a very helpful guy. Would recommend.

    Great way to see the capital from Sydney. I originally thought about making a day trip to Canberra on my own from Sydney, but found this tour and decided I would try it instead and I’m glad that did. I saw everything in Canberra that I wanted to and the tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. If you want to see Canberra in a day from sydney, this tour is the way to go. I wouldn’t hesitate to book this tour again.

    Our guide Piotr was amazing. So knowledgeable about everywhere we went: Museums, Parliament, Embassy Row and sites up and back. While the ride was long, he took breaks which made it much easier. HIGHLY recommend this tour and ask for Piotr!

    Very good one day trip for Canberra. Visited Mt Aslin, War Memorial, Museum, new Parliment house and passed all embassies. Plenty of time at each spot so no rush. This is the second trip I have with Colourful Travel, the previous Blue Mountain trip was also excellent.

    We took the tour of Canberra which is a 12 hour tour. Most of the tour was self guided except for the Parliament House which was very good. I would have liked more facts about the other places we visited but overall it was a great day.

    It's a long day trip but you can see all the important areas in the Australian capital. It was fun driving around all the embassies in Canberra. Walking through the lower and upper houses of Parliament gives you an idea of the country's government. The war memorial was touching and we could witness the memorial performed at 5pm every day. Definitely worthy tour.

    Thank you for taking the time to review your recent day trip to Canberra. It is a lengthy drive from Sydney, but well worth it if you appreciate the fact that you are in the working capital of Australia. Embassy Row, Parliament House and The ANZAC War Memorial are definitely highlights, and we're honored to have been able to showcase them all to you. Cheers

    All in all it was a fantastic day that covered all the must sees in Canberra. It was fun driving around the embassies and great to have some free time for each sight. The Scottish guide was absolutely lovely and lived in Canberra for a while so he shared a lot of information about the city with us during the drive. Great time frame to discover the futuristic capital of Oz and a perfect way to spend a rainy day as you are mostly indoors :)

    Our trip to Canberra, from Sydney, was truly wonderful. We learned so much from our tour guide, and coach driver - both were extremely well informed and worked together well to keep us moving and on-time. The tour leader had hand-outs for us, diagrams of the city of Canberra, and got us very involved in understanding the history and architecture. The bus trip is long but there was a lot of information delivered along the way - do your best not to doze off!
    Our only complaint was that there were 49 people and only one tour guide, so difficult to hear sometimes, and difficult to keep the entire group together.
