I would recommend Blue Mountain Tour to everyone.
At first my sister and I thought the 6:35am pick up was sooo early, but after our tour guide Sean explained the reason why, we totally agreed as it helped us to be ahead of many of the big bus tours the entire day.
From the time we left the pick up location Sean was a wealth of continuous information (Australian history) for the next 1 hr until we stopped for breakfast.
Since we had such an early morning pick up, I want to thank Blue Mountain Tours for including breakfast which provided a well appreaciated break in the 2 hrs drive. The way this tour is designed there are not long periods of just riding on the bus.
After breakfast the ride continued to Blue Mountain, and Sean continued to encourage us to disregard the dreary overcast day and appeaciate the beauty of Blue Mountain rain forest in all it's glory (cloudy, foggy, rainy and cold). He truly made us see nature through a nature lovers eyes, and thats a gift of a great tour guide. Even when this Miami, Florida girl was freezing cold, he offered to let me wear his jacket (he took it off and drapped it on my shoulders at one point). Sean was courteous and kind all day long.
Let's talk about the meals that were included, it was so refreshing to eat where the locals eat, instead of the normal tourist food. Both breakfast and lunch was very good.
Also I want to say the communication with Blue Mountain Tours (Chapo) was easy and welcoming. He always responded in a timely fashion, from reconfirming our pick up time and loation, to finding my sisters lost phone on the bus after the tour had ending.
Booking with Blue Mountain Tours was a great experience!!
