My wife and I took the Blue Mountains trip with Rob in February 2017. Collection from our hotel was on time and Rob is as most of the reviewers point out jovial and a good entertainer. He is also forthright with his views which seems to be usual with many Australians. No problems with that. The mountains are quite impressive, and covered in jungle. How humans manage to put roads in some places never ceases to amaze me. The history of the first explorers was very interesting and trying to envisage them making their way through such a wild environment is equally as incredible as the road. Overall I enjoyed the trip which ended with a pleasant ferry return to Circular Quays. On the negative side you must appreciate that the mountains are quite some distance from the city so it should be obvious that the stops are always going to feel a bit rushed. If we return to Sydney we would consider a couple of nights stay in the mountains so we could take our time to explore it properly. Two other points regarding our particular trip which led to the middle rating are the meal supplied was awful, with three of the group having to return the chicken snitzels as they were still raw in the middle. The food was sent back and it was obvious that the same pieces of meat were just put back in the oil and returned to the table. They were still inedible. The hotel gave a free drink to everyone in the group, but this still spoiled what could have been a decent trip. One other point is Rob used his mobile phone several times while driving, something we should have pointed out at the time. Maybe I needed a bit of that Australian forthrightness to point out the danger of taking your eyes off the road.
