My wife and I took the Blue Mountains Day Tour a couple weeks ago with Rob. Rob was great. It was awesome to have a local show us around and tell us a little bit about Sydney, the Blue Mountains and everything we saw in between. There were 9 of us total on the trip, so it was a small... More

Pleasant guy, very friendly, funny and knowledgable... but I reckon for every 1 minute of info he gave us about Sydney he gave us 2 mins of info about his family. Yes, I know how much his dad 'apparently' got paid off for land, what his wife does, his legal battles and his sons budding football career. What do I... More

Thank you Rob for making this a day to remember from the minute you promptly picked us up till you dropped us back for our ferry ride home. Rob was informative, humorous, helpful and knowledgeable and not just about his home country but about everyone's who had joined the trip. He brought the group together well. We loved all the...

My wife and I took the Blue Mountains trip with Rob in February 2017. Collection from our hotel was on time and Rob is as most of the reviewers point out jovial and a good entertainer. He is also forthright with his views which seems to be usual with many Australians. No problems with that. The mountains are quite impressive,... More

My wife and I enjoyed this experience with Rob, our tour guide and driver. He was on time picking us up from the hotel and his vehicle was modern and clean. This is an all day adventure learning about the history of Australia. Rob was very informative on the culture and entertained us with plenty of laughs throughout the day.... More

We booked this tour based on the great reviews we'd read and we weren't disappointed. Firstly communication to book on the tour was quick and simple. Despite the rain we were picked up from our hotel and set off for the day. I was slightly nervous as there were only 4 of us on the tour (which I'm told is... More

My wife and I went on this tour during a five day break in Sydney and it proved to be one of the highlights of our trip. It was a long day, meeting Rob at 7-30am and not returning to the city until 6-00pm but it was indeed a day to remember. The scenery throughout the day was spectacular, the... More

My husband and I had a great day out with Rob who was very knowledgeable, fun and humorous and got us to the sights early so we avoided the crowds. Everything was laid on for you to get the best from the day. I would definitely book this Blue Mountains tour again or any other tour with this company and... More

A wonderful day out with Rob, a warm, generous Aussie with a great sense of humour and a wealth of anecdotes ranging from fire fighting to football to Australian history and knowledge of the mountains etc. The other reviews will tell you what you'll be doing - but if you want the personal touch with laughter and taking your time,...
