    Anderson’s Tours is a top notch company. Because our 8 person group comprised nearly 50% of the small group, they arranged to pick us up at our hotel rather than the normal pickup point. Bob, the guide/driver was very professional and extremely accommodating. Because he lives in the Blue Mountains, he knew how to avoid the normal crowds and provide us with and excellent and efficient tour. This tour is a must consider if you have a short time in the Sydney area. The ride to the Blue Mountains includes travel through the CBD of Sydney, the surrounding suburbs and then into the mountain communities. Bob provided history and background of each of these areas while traveling. The initial mountain lookouts and vistas are spectacular. During our visit to Scenic World, Bob knew how to navigate the park while avoiding the mega bus crowds of picture takers. Our lunch was very good with choices for everyone. Next was the Zoo and it’s native Australian animals. Wallabys, Kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils, Capybaras, Koalas and others were close and in some cases only enclosed by a single split rail fence. We even fed Grey Kangaroos by hand. Finally, the Sydney Harbor ferry ride back to Circle Quay topped the day. Bob’s knowledge and his narration made the entire day very enjoyable.

    We went on the tour to the Blue Mountains the day after we arrived in Sydney. We thought it would be good but we were very happy to find that it was excellent. Before we got to the Blue Mountains we stopped at an animal park, Featherdale. That was an outstanding experience. We got to see Australians animals and that was delightful. Then we stopped in a town for lunch and we thought that was a treat too. The next stop was Echo point to see the three sisters. Then to scenic world. Then the driver dropped us off at a fairy stop and we took a boat back to Circular Quay. A great day and I actually would have liked to do it again.

    We had a wonderful day out earlier this week. Scotty was great, and did everything he could to make it an enjoyable day for everyone. What a kind hearted and nice guy. The day started out pretty foggy and we were all worried we wouldn't see much on the day, but Scott went out of his way to re-order things so we had the best chance of seeing everything. A good size group, there were 16 of us, stopped in a nice little spot for lunch. A great day all round, would highly recommend. Thanks Scott. x

    Really good trip. The mountains were beautiful and we saw some of the best bits. Tour guides Roger and Hoof really knowledgable and lovely people. The hike was well worth doing, but a longer time allocated would have stopped it feeling like a rush.

    Very smooth transition from all activities during the day. Lunch was really good quality and the view was amazing. We wouldn’t have seen any of these views or scenery unless with a guide. Thank you!

    Great guide and stops - the tour was excellent. Guide knew a lot about Australian history and aboriginal history. He took us to great spots. Saw 1 wild kangaroo, and got a pretty good pic of it.

    This was a good combo with the Ferry. The Taronga was very good. Lots of animals. Lots of walking with several hills. Highly recommend!

    Matt gave us one of the most memorable days we've had in the two weeks we've been in Australia. We originally contracted Matt and arranged a tour in early 2020. COVID hit the world and we had to schedule three times before we finally met up with him on the third try in 2023. But each time we had to change, Matt was very gracious to let us make the needed changes. Traveling with Matt was like traveling with a close friend. He adjusted the stops based upon our interests and what we had already experienced. We especially enjoyed seeing something he had heard about but not had personally sought when we went to find a colony (flock? gaggle? group? camp?) of flying foxes (or maybe known as fruit bats) in a wooded area behind a group of houses. We've never seen anything like this anywhere in the world! The trip was most enjoyable because we saw and experienced many sights and places without having to endure large crowds. Matt really delivers a great experience and we'd recommend him highly!

    Jelle from dino tour is an excellent guide. With his deep history and cultural background, he led us to an incredible insightful hike around the various scenic blue mountain lookouts. A specially prepared lunch was thrown in for us too. Kudos to our members in our tour group.

    The weather did not cooperate, rainy and low clouds but the tour was still excellent. The guide was outstanding, informative and entertaining. He adjusted the tour as necessary because of the weather. The scenery in the Blue Mountains is gorgeous, the food was great and the stop at the city farm with the koalas was fun.

    This is an extremely well organised trip. All snacks, meals & drinks included. All tastes of Australia. The pie shop has the most delicious pies. Scenery en route beautiful. Stopping at a scenic view point over the ocean for first snacks of the day. Two waterfall visits in the most stunning places. Arriving at the site where the kangaroos & wombats, Dave cooked an excellent BBQ. The chance to sample some unusual sausages & kebabs too. 🤔. Being able to spend time so close up with the wombats & kangaroos amazing. Thank you for all the thought you put into this wonderful trip. Fantastic memories.

    From start to finish, this private tour was tailored to our specific interests and the guide was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the area. The guide was able to take us to all the must-see destinations and also showed us some hidden gems that we never would have found on our own like areas where bush fires in Australia left very big signs, affected areas, different side views of the Opera House (Though it was not covered, he took us there).

    The rides on the scenic railway, skyway, and cableway offered breathtaking views of the Blue Mountains and it took us to Katoomba Falls (Heaven on the Earth). It was truly an unforgettable experience.

    The tour company made sure that we had a comfortable and enjoyable experience, they had all the details taken care of and we never had to worry about anything. They were also very flexible and accommodating with our schedule.

    I would highly recommend this tour company to anyone looking for a private and personalized tour of the Blue Mountains and Scenic World. They truly went above and beyond to ensure that we had an unforgettable and unique experience. Thank you for such an amazing day!

    Scotty Edwards, our tour guide, was absolutely fabulous! He put everyone at ease, entertained a myriad of questions, and brought authenticity to the history of the Blue Mountains, the settling of Australia, how the Aboriginals used the stars and natural formations to live and succeed in this remarkable continent, and kept the trip relaxing and entertaining for all concerned.
    The hike to see the Three Sisters included discussion about the trees we were seeing, their medicinal properties, and made it a more interesting hike. All the hikes to see overlooks, waterfalls and enjoy the views of the Blue Mountains were just wonderful.
    Our lunch in Leura was lovely, with choices to meet anyone's needs, and sufficient time.
    Featherdale Wildlife Park was just the right size for the last stop of the day, and getting to have one's picture taken with a koala was especially nice and well done by this park.
    Having 14 people plus our guide Scotty, was a comfortable size group, and all in all, one of the best tours I've ever taken as Scotty's personalized touch made all the difference.

    Excellent tour with Craig of the Blue Mountains, Featherdale wildlife park, Fletcher's lookout, Wentworth's falls, and the Three Sisters at Echo point, with addition stops in Luria (dessert) and Katoomba (lunch). We were offered a trip to Scenic World, but chose to pass.
    All our questions were answered and everything went at our pace. We could not have been better served.
