We were very happy with our tour: we saw wild cangaroos and kookaburras, hiked and visit Featherdale. Jelle is very informative and patient. He managed a difficult day with a group from 12 to 86 year old, proposing the right activities for each of us. Highly recommended!!

We booked the small-group insider tour of the Blue Mountains for our family of four months in advance of our arrival in Sydney. The day before we confirmed with the owner Jelle and he offered to pick us up at our hotel in Coogee to make things convenient and easy for us—he also dropped us off there at the end of the tour. From the start, Jelle’s energy and excitement for the tour was better at bringing me out of my usual morning fog better than any cup of coffee I’ve ever had. He was full of information about Sydney, what we were driving by, etc., as well as full of questions about how we wanted to spend OUR day together. This customization on-the-fly was a differentiating factor from other small group tours I’ve been on in the past. Jelle wanted to make sure we got the tour experience that most suited our interests, physical abilities, etc. We saw all of the significant sites at the different stops, and Jelle peppered us with facts, stories, and local lore about them as well as the surrounding plants and wildlife. There is a fair amount of driving on this tour, which can be a drag if your driver isn’t constantly making you laugh or keeping you on the edge of your seat with the legend of the Three Sisters. This tour was fantastic. I highly recommend!

Hiking, history, birding, lesser-trodden paths, breathtaking views - all in one day. Jelle does an extraordinary job of exposing you to a country, its peoples and its landscape. The tour begins with a visit to Featherdale before the crowds arrive; it’s both animal park and sanctuary, with Australia’s best-known animals and birds in little or no confinement. During our hike in the Blue Mountains, picnic lunch, and visit to the Botanic(al) Gardens, we identified more than a dozen species of birds. A quite large blue-tongued skink joined us for lunch, hanging out around the picnic table in peaceful co-existence the entire time. Jelle is an obvious nature lover with a keen eye and astute observations. If you’re looking for an intimate tour with an experienced guide, this one’s for you.

I am so terribly sorry! This is what happened: - On 1 March 2020, as a result of the Covid Pandemic, we have had to suspend all our tours until 1 April 2022! We did this via the Viator/TripAdvisor management section. - However, it appears that our suspension-settings were not applied across the Viator/Tripadvisor platform. The reason, as we just learnt, was an existing conflict between our Viator/Tripadvisor settings with the settings at our own booking engine. - As a result of this technical mismatch you were able to make a booking on a tour what was never going to be held. And to make matters worse, we were totally unaware of your booking. We were only advised of your booking when you requested a refund. I appreciate this is little consolation to you. Yet I hope that you can also appreciate the exceptional circumstances that lead to this very unfortunate event. Kind regards, Jelle

After investigating organising our own day visit to the Blue Mountains using public transport, we decided it would more beneficial to go on a group trip instead and were so pleased we chose Dingo's Small-Group Insider Tour, despite the cost being slightly more than what looked to be other similar offerings.

Our driver guide Jelle was an excellent host and it was clear to see from the off that he had a) put considerable thought into planning the itinerary to avoid the crowds and b) had both a great love and knowledge of the fauna, flora and culture of the area.

We visited Featherdale WildlifeCentre before official opening time, the beautiful Wentworth Falls in the Jamison Valley, Three Sisters, had a picnic lunch at the stunning Pulpit Rock and wandered through the picturesque Botanic Gardens. The circular route involved a mixture of short hikes interspersed with scenic drives that captured the majesty and serenity of key sections of this huge National Park.

Jelle seemed to be toying with the idea of dropping Featherdale from future tours. Being Aussie residents ,we had seen quite bit of the indigenous wildlife either in the wild or in captivity at larger centres before, but I can see the attraction for overseas visitors, despite the likely crowds.

Whatever the future format, I would highly recommend this particular tour as a convenient and insightful way of exploring this stunningly beautiful area.

Great visit on a beautiful sunny day in Blue Mts. Just being away from the crowds and visiting the Animal Park early and seeing Three Sisters from another location made it nice. Enjoyed our walk to Lookouts and having a picnic. Botanical Gardens had nice displays. Jelle gave much information about the mountains and the burned area. He was an entertaining guide!

Jelle is an excellent and flexible guide with much knowledge to share. Even though we had an extremely foggy day and the views of the blue mountains were muted, he still managed to make it a fun experience all around!

Despite a cloudy day the tour was fantastic. Jelle was incredibly interesting and knowledgeable about the history of locations and the country together with the wildlife in the mountains. There were only four of us in the tour and he ensured each of us enjoyed our tour. Lunch was simple, in a cafe because of the weather. The walking was undemanding but probably needed to cope with all abilities. Would highly recommend this tour and particularly the guide.
