Unforgettable experience to the Blue Mountains. We had the sunset tour and would recommend it to anyone. Our tour guide Donna is very experienced and guided us through the day very well. Since she grew up in the area as a child, she was able to show us great places when hiking through the mountains. At noon we stopped for lunch in a small village and there were delicious sandwiches and some fruit from a local baker. It was also enough for us, but if someone is really hungry, they should pack something else. The sunset over the Blue Mountains will also be unforgettable. The good thing was that we were the only tourists there and a few locals.

Donna did her level best to make this tour live up to its claims. Rain was extensive and made it impossible to fully appreciate the Blue Mountains. Low clouds and mist hampered the canyons, forest and vistas. Sunset was a no show because of cloud cover and rain. If rain is in the forecast, might be a good idea to cancel. Tour was scheduled to return to pickup at around 10pm... we returned around 740pm because of weather. If you return at 10pm, many value eateries are closed by then. Know your options in advance.

We were really in doubt if we should do the tour due to our limited time in Sydney, however after this day we have no regrets whatsoever! Donna and Glen were amazing tour guides, answering to all our questions, advising us, offering to take photos and telling all about the legends and history from he places we visited. On top of that they have a great sense of humour. It was Glen's first day working with the company but he was a natural, keep the good work!! The fact that the tour starts at 12pm is really good because it gave us the morning to explore sydney a little bit more and gave us the chance to see the sunset on the blue mountains (divinal!). Thank you so much for the amazing day and for making us have no regrets!
