    we had an awesome day. three things why you should choose this tour. 1st: Paul is an awesome guide and keeps you entertained. he got a lot of knowledge and is super helpful in all means. 2nd the views are spectacular. well and carefully chosen you will see places and look at views you most likely won't see on the ordinary tourist trips. 3rd: so many lovely moments and the stop for lunch at the royal hotel with awesome, basic food makes you feel of being an Australian (at least a bit). sadly, we were so tired due to our arrival in the morning from sydney so Paul possibly felt like "what a quiet group". sorry for that @Paul so my advice is: stay the night before at Katoomba and start the stay less early. we think, every person thinking of a trip should book this one especially in case you want to see spots of nature and breath taking views no usual tourist will see. it is worth every penny. Thank you Paul for widening our knowledge and impressions of Australia in such a way.

  • From Sydney: Boutique Uncharted Blue Mountains Tour

After, continue the journey to discover the Blue Mountains. Options include short guided bush walks, and an abundance of lookouts over the Jamison, Grose, and Megalong Valleys. Next, head down from the mountains for a hands-on Australian native wildlife encounter and the chance to pat a Koala and feed Kangaroos at Featherdale Wildlife Park! Return to Sydney in your luxury tour vehicle.

    John was a great driver and guide. Mountains were everything we hoped for. The animal sanctuary was amazing! Only disappointments were the "aboriginal" show which was more about the English and less about the aboriginal culture and dances. Also, $108 was very expensive for the lunch provided. We would not do a lunch included tour again.

This was a great tour. The driver/guide, Steve, lives locally and had all the local knowledge to make it memorable. He took us to places that were not on the agenda and told us interesting local stories. Much thanks to Andersons Tours and particularly Steve for a great time John Weir.
