    Superbe excursion dans les Blue Mountains, un peu en retrait des circuits traditionnels. Merci à Jelle from Dingo Tours pour ses explications et commentaires. Bonne météo, journée parfaite.

    Excellent spots we were taken to in the blue mountains. Jelle was a knowledgeable and engaging guide. We really enjoyed this one and saw about as much as we wanted in one day!

  • 20-Oct-2022

    This trip was booked for the day before and I was messaged by Jelle to see if I could go the next day. I was pleased I could manage this trip before departing Australia the day after. Great full day starting with being picked up at the hotel. The weather as a bit dodgy but Jelle talked us through the places where we would be going if it was nice weather. He tried a few different spots to give us a great view between cloud and rain. We weren't disappointed when the clouds shifted a couple of times to give us a glimpse of the Blue mountains and the valleys around. Good lunch in a small town, with only 5 of us and a dodge day we managed to eat in the cafe rather than have a picnic. Nice stop at the Ferndale animal park on the way up, and on the way home we called into a botanical Garden in the Mountains.

    Jelle was the best tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and took time with each of us to answer questions. He truly made the whole experience great.

    A one of a kind tour. The tour guide is super knowledgeable , pickup was on time, very comfortable bus, small group. Highly recommended, great value. Plenty of stops and photos opportunities. Definitely a 5 star !!!

    We were driven by guide, Andrew Smith. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Blue Mountains, the city of Sydney and many other localities. Andrew's first language is English but he speaks German and French fluently but can muddle along in other languages too. He is a delightful person, friendly and welcoming. He is patient with demanding clients. Having assessed the varied levels of fitness of his group, as well as their main interests, he adapted the day's activities to suit everyone, as far as possible. As a couple we brought the group numbers up to five with ages ranging from 21 to 70. We were lucky with the weather and the views were superb. Andrew designed his targets and timing to avoid crowds. It was a great day out. Thank you, Andrew.

    We booked this trip via trip advisor (on my partner’s trip advisor account) after reading great reviews. Going to the Blue Mountains was a must-do for us and we were excited to see more secluded spots with this tour. We read the one bad review about Dingos not picking a group up but felt really reassured by their response, especially since they had stated that tours had begun running again in April 2022 and the lack of pick up had been due to Covid. We rang the evening before our tour just to double check that our pick up location would be okay. The call went straight through to voicemail - stating that Dingos was currently working on a tour but to leave your name and number and someone would get back to you. We did so, however received no communication from Dingos. By this point Trip Advisor had changed our booking from pending to confirmed, meaning that the tour company had confirmed our trip, so we thought that everything would be okay. On the morning of our tour we were ready outside the hostel at the allocated time, however no pick up arrived. We waited over an hour outside whilst trying to contact Dingos multiple times via their contact number but we received the same automated voice mail as we had the evening before. We even tried to contact them via Facebook but received no reply! After waiting for an hour, we had to quickly buy train tickets to make our own way to the blue mountains. We lost out on time in the blue mountains as we had spent an hour sitting on the street in Sydney and missed out doing a surfing lesson on Bondi as we had changed our plans to accommodate doing this tour. Overall, I think the tour would have been absolutely amazing if we had the chance to do it. However, we feel thoroughly disappointed not only by the no-show but also by Dingos lack of communication with us. As I write this review now, we’ve still had no message, phone call or e-Mail from them!

    The driver for the tour was uncontactable and didn’t arrange a pick up. Missed out on the trip after I had paid my money. Terrible

    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!
