Rob was the highlight of our tour. He is knowledgeable, funny and caring towards his guests. We went to many out of the way places to avoid large groups of tourists. We were one of the first groups at the wildlife park and avoided what could be very long lines. Since most were couples on the tour, Rob paid special attention to a single person so she would feel included.

Because there is quite a bit of travel, Rob kept us well informed about the history of the area as we drove along. Since he is also on the fire watch, we got into the environment too. He's a very fascinating person.

Rob was a great guide from the start and we immediately knew the day would be both entertaining and very informative. Started the day at Featherdale Wildlife park and it was so good to be there before the main rush of tourists arrive. Worth getting up early!
Heard the amazing bell birds on our way up to the Blue Mountains and also did a bit of a detour to see Kangaroos in the wild. Only a few on this day but still an incredible sight for us. Blue Mountains beautiful even on an overcast day. Last bit of journey was an hour or so on a boat back into Circular Quay. Very enjoyable as it gave a completely different view of the city and its suburbs. Thank you Rob and Bronwen for a memorable trip.

Great tour of the Blue Mountains. Guide Rob was entertaining, knowledgable and knows how to tell a story. Not only did we see the sights, we also learned many historical facts about the history of Sydney and the surrounding area. We highly recommend this tour.

Prompt pick up

Crap weather nothing that can be done about it .. so make the best of it and that's what I felt Rob did .
We all had a great time with picture taking with the koala Bears , the wild life park was fantastic .
Wild kangaroo siting also very interesting .
Lunch at the old manor was delicious .. we had the fish
Unfortunately Blue mountain was covered in fog and lit rain
We took all the rides ... steep train , both cable cars
Didn't do the stairs down as it was raining and slippery .
We were dropped off at the to take ferry home ,my suggestion here was make sure you have a map to find your way back to hotel .

Thank s-ssal
