Very nice and comfortable trip, a brilliant experience.

Very nice and comfortable trip with a brilliant experience. It is nice and helpful for family tourists. Save me plenty of time to prepare in quite a different city. They are very experienced and trained people to help us have a good journey. I can't believe I live on a planet with northern lights, coral reefs, snowy mountains, mossy rocks, and sparkling waterfalls, and I just have to go to work.

Most amazing trip ever - my friend and I had a most memorable trip yesterday to the lovely Blue Mountains with our fantastic and lovely guide and driver, Grant, who took care of our group of 22 really well.

Just wow wow and wow! A must-see experience for anyone visiting Sydney - truly enjoyed the Sydney Zoo, the Scenic Railway, the gorgeous views and walks to Katoomba Waterfalls and the various lookout points on a lovely day Also the ferry ride back to Darling Harbour - worth every dollar paid!

Great experience with a good host. Had a morning tea and biscuits. Lunch was in the cutest town ever. Absolutely enjoyed myself. The pick up was swift. I did the railway ride. Worth doing for sure. It’s such a lovely place I hope to go back to explore more.
