‘We had a lovely day seeing the beautiful sights of the Blue Mountains with a knowledgeable guide. We are from Sydney and have travelled there independently before. Going with our guide was so much more interesting and informative. Seeing hidden gems and tasting good food and drink on top of secluded mountains was a bonus to the already wonderful jam-packed day.’

    If you want a good tour with less people this is the tour for you. Jason did a fabulous job working with the limitations we had because of the fires in the Blue Mountains. Truly since we had a smaller group we were able to go to areas that were less traveled. Jason knew of all the little roads, that were less populated and were not affected by the smoke of the fires. We had a delightful breakfast at this cute cafe just on the edge of the Blue Mountains. We had homemade rice wrap rolls with different types of meats and veggies as a snack. He made a delicious hearty soup for lunch. Left us off at the end of the day to our boat back to Darling Harbour with home made little apple pies. Jason was a wealth of information and I couldn't have imagined a better tour.

    We had a lovely day seeing the beautiful sights of the Blue Mountains with a knowledgeable guide. We are from Sydney and have travelled there independently before. Going with our guide was so much more interesting and informative. Seeing hidden gems and tasting good food and drink on top of secluded mountains was a bonus to the already wonderful jam-packed day. Finishing the day with a local home made apple pie on a river cruise was a relaxing wind down. Worth every penny. Would do it all again in a heartbeat.

    Due to bad weather and closures of national parks due to bushfires the trip had to be changed during the day. Jason was able to adapt the day based on the interests of the group so instead of seeing the Blue Mountains we saw lots of hidden Sydney gems. We had lots of great food along the way too. I would definitely recommend booking a tour with Jason, as no matter where you end up you'll learn lots and have a great day.

    Had an amazing time seeing the beautiful Blue Mountains in the best way possible. We started with a varied and tasty breakfast and then continued to have a "progressive lunch" over the course of the day. Our guide Jason was informative and made the day a real joy. Would highly recommend.

On arrival in the mountain township of Katoomba, you’ll be treated to the mind-blowing views of the famous Three Sisters and the Jamison Valley.
