My girlfriend and I went on tour with Alexander on a chilly but beautiful Wednesday morning I February. We were very excited about the first stop and delighted to experience the animals in the wild life park before everyone else. From here on, the weather conditions changed for the worse which resulted in an interesting trip, but not as scenic as expected. You could tell the trip was made for good weather conditions which obviously not implied a rainy and foggy Wednesday. I believe that if the weather would have been great, we would have loved the tour even more. Alexander did a nice job as our guide and knew everything and explained things thoroughly and understandable. The lunch was great! The rating is inky tour starts because it seemed like there wasn't any "plan b" when most of the trip was covered in fog. Would recommend everyone and anyone to do this trip!
highlight of my week in Sydney. Picked up nice and early. Had little picnic before heading off on walk. Was just lush and peaceful away from where all the normal tourists head to. Tour guide Carlos was fabulous and had great knowledge. Read up on what is involved, we were unfortunate to have had someone who was very unfit and slowed group down a little although this did allow us to see the stunning scenery along way. Stopped and had little break under s cliff looking out over the blue mountains, snacks provided by tour provider, continued with walk to beautiful waterfall and washed face in water to cool down. Stopped for great lunch in little cafe, Turkish bread sandwiches freshly made. Then had drive to couple more lookouts again away from where all the tour drives go to see 3 sisters. Lovely drive back to Perth through some of towns in blue mountains. Would highly recommend booking this tour
There were only 4 of us in our group which was nice. We visited the Featherdale Animal Sancuary and fed the wallabies. We managed to see the Blue Mountains despite the smoke from the bush fires. Our guide was very informative. The scenery was absolutely stunning. We did a hike, which was described as easy to moderate, my husband and I are fairly fit but I would describe this as moderate to hard. Towards the end of the hike it is mostly uphill (alot of steps) and in the heat and after over an hour of hiking took its toll. Also we hadn't eaten since our breakfast at our hotel before pickup at 0720, it was now 1300 so I would suggest you take plenty of snacks and water with you. However, the views along the route were amazing and we were rewarded with a lovely picnic at the end. This is a full day and well worth it.
Despite a cloudy day the tour was fantastic. Jelle was incredibly interesting and knowledgeable about the history of locations and the country together with the wildlife in the mountains. There were only four of us in the tour and he ensured each of us enjoyed our tour. Lunch was simple, in a cafe because of the weather. The walking was undemanding but probably needed to cope with all abilities. Would highly recommend this tour and particularly the guide.
Thank you Jelle, Dingo Tours for selecting a route that provided a great personal experience of this beautiful place. We enjoyed the historical and cultural commentary and music along the way. Birds, plants, some hiking and a picnic away from crowds, with only one day to see the Blue Mountains, this trip was ideal.
My tour was cancelled 3 days before the tour date and I was offered an option which was not at all comparable to the tour which I had booked. Cancelling the tour, because I was the only one signed up, is understandable but a bit more notice of cancellation would have been better because I was left at the last minute looking for a tour which covered the points that this tour was going to cover.
The tour was excellent and we had a fantastic day. Jelle, our tour guide, is extremely knowledgeable in many different fields and in one day we learned so much about the significance and history of the locations we were visiting, the Australian culture, and the local flora and fauna. It's worth going on this tour just to hear those stories. We visited the Featherdale wildlife park before there were any other visitors and had plenty of time to enjoy the company of friendly kangaroos, which didn't mind being pet. We visited many different locations around the Blue Mountains, saw stunning views and were taken to viewing locations that avoided the big crowds. We had picnic for lunch, which included tasty gourmet sandwiches, fruits and drinks. In summary, we had a great time and would whole heartedly recommend this tour.
An excellent tour in perfect weather - we were lucky! A little late with the pickup (our guide apologised) but otherwise good pace, no rush. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and especially helpful to me on the hike around the Undercliff at Wentworth Falls. Lunch and other refreshments were very good, just as described. Our only criticism would be that the hike was much more demanding than we anticipated - better online description please!
My wife and I did this tour and enjoyed all of it. First off our lodging was a bit off normal”pickup” route. We had option to pay an extra $40 to be picked up right at our place (worth it to us as we aren’t yet familiar with public transport and would have had to get up very early). Second off our guide Tony was very knowledgeable and amiable. Kept tour moving very efficiently. The cost is moderately high ($385.00 for two adults) but there is a lot packed into day. We also had to pay additional $43 pp for sky cable car (but worth it, not sure why wasn’t included). Cost includes light coffee:tea stop early on and decent lunch. One big plus was we had small group, eleven total. Much better than one of the standard huge buses. Activities included time at Scenic world (with three “rides” and nice walk), very well done movie-live actors summarizing Australia history, a couple of bush walks (amazing views over Blue Mountains), and finally Featherdale Wildlife Park. Great diversity of native species on display. We would highly recommend this tour.
