Had a great day visiting all the different sites. Specifically FJ Tours and our tour guide Aaron were great to deal with. Still being jetlagged from our travels, my friend and I showed up 24 hours early for our excursion. Without hesitation Aaron phoned his dispatch and made the change so we could attend the tour that day. FJ Tours accommodated immediately and made for a great day.

Tony, the driver / our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable of Sydney areas. Me and my family enjoyed the trip a lot and appreciated Tony for taking us on quick mini tours between destinations whenever there was any spare time. Great tour to get if you are visiting Sydney and it's not very tiring as we anticipated

This was indeed one of the best side trips we have ever been on. JV Tours packed in a LOT of sights and experiences in one day. Our driver Tony was an EXCELLANT tour guide and had QUITE the personality. He kept us moving and laughing. I would take this excursion over again in a heart beat! .................. Carl E.

Wonderful trip and reasonable price, totally worth it! The guide Steve was knowledgeable and also a good driver.

The guide tried very hard to keep us entertained despite the miserable weather and poor visibility. He did it!
