We only had a day in Sydney and decided to book this private tour to the Blue Mountains. We are so glad that we did! David, our tour guide and owner of Escape Scenes was fantastic. He is super flexible depending upon what you want to see and what is important. He adjusts the itinerary to meet your goals. We were able to see everything that was important to us without the headache of a large tour group. We would highly recommend this tour!

Due to the fires and torrential rains in Sydney, it was a last minute decision to take a Blue Mountains tour, and we are so glad we booked it with Escape Scenes. David is perhaps the best guide we have ever had. The tour was tailored to our needs, not a preset itinerary or schedule, which we really appreciated. David took us to some of the more obscure venues in the Blue Mountains inaccessible to tour busses. Many times were were the only people there. He was incredibly knowledgeable, informative and enthusiastic. This was a highlight of our trip. I highly recommend Escape Scenes for any private or small group tour around Sydney.

Excellent day touring the blue mountains. We saw the 3 sisters. Had many photos. Had a cider tasting stopped for little apple pies and saw spectacular views. David was fantastic and taught us a lot including the Australian slang. He had tremendous enthusiasm and worked around Road closures and our very specific goals to accomplish a great tour. Would definitely recommend going with David. Research ahead of time to see what interests you He even took us through feather dale personally. to see the kangaroos the wombats and even a crocodile Comfortable van also

Thank you for your wonderful feedback guys. It was an adventure this day I remember running all over the place in search of Kangaroos in the wild. We did get to see them in the park after all. We had some great conversations, I always love learning about people and this is a great way of doing so. Thank you again for coming along on this tour. Appreciated, David

My husband and I only had one day to visit the Blue Mountains from downtown Sydney, and booking a private tour with Escape Scenes was a wise choice. We booked it on-line from Vancouver, Canada one week in advance and all went smoothly and as planned. If you are thinking of booking a private tour to the Blue Mountains from Sydney, go for it with Escape Scenes! David, bussiness owner, will be your driver and guide. David picked us early in the morning from our hotel and dropped us back in the evening, which was really convenient. His profesionalism was outstanding the whole trip. He is passionated about what he does and we could not have chosen a better travel companion. David took the time to learn about our expectations and accomodate our requests. He was knowledgeable about the area, with excellent driving skills, and super friendly. He tried to avoid the crowds as much as possible and showed us a couple spots outside the mainatream. Thank you so much for such a great day, David! From the Spanish couple travelling from Vancouver, Canada.

We had a great day touring the Blue Mountains with David. Even though the weather did not cooperate David went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our time. He customized the tour to accommodate all our different abilities and interests. He even went out of his way at the end of the tour to show us a few extra sites as we came back into Sydney including driving us across the bridge twice! He shared his expansive knowledge of the area and made us feel very comfortable.

Knowing most of my guests have limited time in Sydney to see the sights, I always strive to deliver a unique experience for them. I enjoy that my tours are more of a conversation rather than me simply rattling off commentary. This aids me in shaping the day to work not only with the conditions we were faced with in the rain but also based on your interests. Your feedback is welcome and appreciated. Thank you David.
