Terry was EXTREMELY helpful and knowledgeable about the scenery and history surrounding this beautiful landscape. I would highly recommend booking with him! He was also very helpful suggesting places and things worth doing in the surrounding areas and gave us amazing insight on what we should fill our days with :) I’m happy to say I would recommend this to anyone I know traveling in the Sydney area

The crew were very friendly and accommodating. The food and wine was outstanding and the whole experience exceeded our expectations! However, if you're wanting great views, I recommend only doing the dinner cruise in Daylight savings and choosing the lunch cruise at other times...

Smokey is a great guide, very friendly and approachable. Everyone in the group admired his ability of talking non stop for hours, either when driving or doing a walk. Thank you for this great experience. Enjoyed it a lot :)

Amazing trip! The guide knew exactly what he was talking about and easily changed the itinerary if parts were not accessible. You get to see so many beautiful parts of the Blue Mountains in the right amount of time!

Thanks Smokey - great photos and guide well worth!
