    Superb day out, Matt our guide was incredible, by far the best guide we have had during our time in Australia!! His knowledge, friendliness and professionalism makes the day. The vehicle was clean and modern and the lunch was excellent. The timings and locations are superb as you miss the crowds. Thanks for a great day ourt Matt.

    David, our guide, was exceptional but the weather did not cooperate. The wild life Park was a big hit. Unfortunately there were no Blue Mountain View’s to be had. David took is to some waterfalls that we could enjoy.

    Hugh our tour is the best Scottish Australian tour guide you could get lol. The feather Dale wildlife park was amazing but after that the weather turned and Hugh did everything he could for us to have a nice day. Top man he made the day

    Tour started off with some rain but that didn’t dampen the trip. We stopped at Featherdale first to see the animals. It was early enough that it wasn’t busy and even with the drizzle most of the animals were active. I enjoyed the interaction with the animals and learning about them. Our first lookout was closed but we proceeded to the next. The trek to Wentworth falls is a bit steep (1.2 mi 1 way) but so worth it. Just have to pace yourself going down and up. Katoomba falls was gorgeous and a much easier trek. All of the views were stunning. Tony was very knowledgeable and a great guide for our trip.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this trip. I was a bit sceptical about the wildlife park, as we had already seen a lot of animals and birds in the wild, but it was actually brilliant. They had a wonderful bird collection, as well as the standard k+K's! But e.g. Echidnas, and wombats were also interesting. We had got in and out before the crowds - and by the time we left the car park was packed! The gentle jaunt around the highlights of the Blue Mountains that you can realistically do in a day was great - and David our guide, was informative, humorous and very helpful. Would definitely recommend this small groups experience.

    Mark was a great tour guide-friendly and informative. I don’t want to give too much away for any of these tours as they really are better when one goes in knowing little. That said, I will say that the views were incredible, lunch delicious, and the trip to Featherdale on the way to the Blue Mountains was wonderful.

    Our family and one other (9 people total) had a comfortable ride in a van with KG as our guide. She took us on a driving tour of the Rocks, then through a wildlife habitat, pointing out all of the animals and birds local to Australia. We took a quick drive through the Olympic park. Next we stopped at a clearing in a park where our guide brought out some cookies and tea for the group. We had fun feeding the birds in the park as well. She made the day fun for the kids as well as the adults. We went into the Blue Mts where we had lunch. As we drive KG told us plenty about this part of Australia. We had lunch in the national park, calling ahead with our order. We were short on time, so we didn’t stop to browse in the town which was a bit disappointing. We saw the 3 sisters but not the waterfall. While we did have a great time with KG, I do which we had time to see the waterfall. It is a long day of driving, but worth getting out of Sydney to explore the countryside. If I had one recommendation it would be to skip the Rocks tour as that’s easy to do on your own. Heading out right away would allow more time in the country.

    I love state parks and national parks in the US, so this tour was my favorite on a recent trip to Sydney. We first stopped at the Featherdale wildlife park and saw various kinds of Australian animals. Then we drove on to the Blue Mountains National Park - it was lovely, and there were kangaroos just lounging about not far from the picnic table where we had morning tea. We had lunch at the Conservation Hut (delicious) at Wentworth Falls, and also saw the Jamison Lookout, the Three Sisters, and Katoomba Falls. The drive to/from Sydney was a bit long, but well worth it, and in a comfortable vehicle. We would recommend this tour.

    Our guide David picked us up right on schedule at our hotel in Sydney for a drive out and tour through the Blue Mountains. We started out at the Featherdale Wildlife Preserve and arrived before they opened for a more private tour. Next up a tea in a nice park off the beaten path on our drive to Wentworth Falls. Tea and cookies on a picnic table with wild kangaroos grabbing a bite to eat in an open field just meters away. David was friendly and very knowledgeable of the area, people and stories surrounding all of the parts we visited. Off to lunch at the conservation hut at Wentworth Falls for a tasty lunch David had called ahead for after taking our order on the drive up. Next 3-4 km hike down to the falls and then over to the three sisters monument and a nice last stop overlooking the valley. A two hour drive back to Sydney and at our hotel right on schedule. If you want to see the mountains I cannot think of a better way to spend the day than with the crew at ALE. Book it now. You will not be disappointed.

    We had a really lovely day visiting the Blue Mountains. Our driver and guide Mark was excellent. Very knowledgable and patient . It was just us, a family of 4 , for the full day so we could do everything at our pace. We loved the Featherdale Wildlife Park- and we were there before the crowds. Our morning tea was in in a beautiful setting. Lunch was pleasant and well organised in an eco lodge with great views. And then the walk to the stunning Wentworth Falls followed by other stops were the views didn’t disappoint. Thank you Mark . Highly recommended.
