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.

This was a pretty great tour, Donna was a great guide. Unfortunately some of our bush walks were closed due to the fires but Donna was able to improvise. It was nice that this tour didn’t start early in the morning and we didn’t get back at such a late time either. Also due to the fires, we weren’t able to see a sunset which was disappointing.

The actual tour was great, but I would have to say food was not. Lunch was okay for me, but my husband is a very picky eater and didn't enjoy it at all. For our snack/dinner we were told to get something at a supermarket we stopped at, but there weren't any good options or very many options for that matter, and we ended up having to get a ham and cheese croissant, chips and some cookies. Not really what we had in mind for a sunset dinner...
