Our guide Tom was great. He gave us very entertaining commentary both on the blue mountain region but also in Sydney as we were driving through. Our trip included a ferry back to Sydney. Since ferries were free at that time we were reimbursed the fare which they were under no obligation to do. I highly recommend FJ tours. The blue mountains and 3 sisters were beautiful. The rides at scenic world were a bit lame but can’t be helped. You are already there so may as well take them

It was a relaxed trip, with a lot of content, reported by the guide, with visits to different perspectives and locations of the Blue Mountains. We visited several locations, points of interest, trails and parks. It was a very busy day, with enough time for the different points and moments of the tour. I recommend!

It was such an amazing experience. Bob was so friendly and experienced guide, he made so easy trip for us. I would definitely advise him to all my friends. Thanks

great day. lots to see and the guide kept things moving, plenty of free time and easy going!

Love this experience ❤️❤️❤️ Try 1 time anyone you always love this experience
