Rob was the highlight of our tour. He is knowledgeable, funny and caring towards his guests. We went to many out of the way places to avoid large groups of tourists. We were one of the first groups at the wildlife park and avoided what could be very long lines. Since most were couples on the tour, Rob paid special... More

Rob was a great guide from the start and we immediately knew the day would be both entertaining and very informative. Started the day at Featherdale Wildlife park and it was so good to be there before the main rush of tourists arrive. Worth getting up early! Heard the amazing bell birds on our way up to the Blue Mountains... More

Great tour of the Blue Mountains. Guide Rob was entertaining, knowledgable and knows how to tell a story. Not only did we see the sights, we also learned many historical facts about the history of Sydney and the surrounding area. We highly recommend this tour.

My wife and I took the Blue Mountains Day Tour a couple weeks ago with Rob. Rob was great. It was awesome to have a local show us around and tell us a little bit about Sydney, the Blue Mountains and everything we saw in between. There were 9 of us total on the trip, so it was a small... More

Pleasant guy, very friendly, funny and knowledgable... but I reckon for every 1 minute of info he gave us about Sydney he gave us 2 mins of info about his family.

My wife and I took the Blue Mountains trip with Rob in February 2017. Collection from our hotel was on time and Rob is as most of the reviewers point out jovial and a good entertainer. He is also forthright with his views which seems to be usual with many Australians. No problems with that. The mountains are quite impressive,... More

My wife and I enjoyed this experience with Rob, our tour guide and driver. He was on time picking us up from the hotel and his vehicle was modern and clean. This is an all day adventure learning about the history of Australia. Rob was very informative on the culture and entertained us with plenty of laughs throughout the day.... More
