Blue Mountains Small Group Tour Enjoy a Sleep In, Waterfalls, Sunset & Dinner
We are not large your group people so I chose this based on the size and the fact that a photographer always knows the most beautiful views. There were some bush fires at the time of our tour so our scenery was slightly dampened by smoke but was still amazing. If you are wanting small and more personalized I highly recommend this tour. The van was brand new and very comfortable. Thanks for the snacks as well.

Small-Group Blue Mountains Tour with Bush Walks and Featherdale Wildlife Park
Tour guide Jim was great, the only thing that we were disappointed by was that we only had 1 hour and 15 minutes at Featherdale. 2 to 3 hours would have been nice.

Fully Inclusive Blue Mountains Private Tour inc Scenic World & Featherdale entry
This tour was well worth the price! Scott was a terrific guide who actively engaged us in conversation during the drive out to the mountains. Knowledgeable and personable, he also took good care to get us through the lines and positioned in the best spots possible for sight-seeing at the Three Sisters and for fun with the kangaroos at the zoo. Lunch was yummy and walking through the small mountain city very enjoyable. Thank you very much, Scott!

Blue Mountains Small-Group Insider Tour from Sydney
Jean was an excellent tour guide, he knows a ton about the local geography as well as birds/botany making this tour very enjoyable. As the group was very small just three tourists, it was easier to explore blue mountains. The trip also accommodated any special dietary requirements I am vegetarian and gluten free, just adding to the positive experience.

Blue Mountain tour with wine tasting

Private Blue Mountains and Winery Day-Trip from Sydney
The tour with Scott worked out extremely well. He picked us up from the cruise port in Sydney, transported our luggage to our Airbnb rental in Haymarket, then took us on a day long tour. The first half hour he quizzed our group on our interests, then made visit adjustments...We wanted to see Australian animals, great vistas and do some wine tasting. He made it happen. We highly recommend him.
