My guide Antoine is a fantastic guy and the trip was way beyond expectations. First he did not cancel my booking despite I was the only guest today (the other 2 backed off as it might rain). Secondly, he brought me to spots that are not commonly visited by tourists to Blue Mountain. When I sent my photos to friends, they do not believe that those were in Blue Mountain and I just received replies like Wow, Wow, Wow! Third, Antoine is such a good photographer and I learnt so much photography from him today. Lastly, he would go all the way out for me to ensure I spent enough time at each spot and as a result of that, he had to work overtime. I would definitely recommend Antoine from Wildscape Adventure.

Our guide Tom was great. He gave us very entertaining commentary both on the blue mountain region but also in Sydney as we were driving through. Our trip included a ferry back to Sydney. Since ferries were free at that time we were reimbursed the fare which they were under no obligation to do. I highly recommend FJ tours. The blue mountains and 3 sisters were beautiful. The rides at scenic world were a bit lame but can’t be helped. You are already there so may as well take them

This was an amazing and wonderful experience wing with Mr. Antoine. He has special and superficial skills to make his travel partner happy and he makes the travel so easy that everything has been fun with knowledge of whereabouts. He is the best travel partner I have ever met in my life. Moreover, this day with him was the best day of year so far. I congratulate Mr. Antoine for being a wonderful human being and amazing Travel Partner.

It was a relaxed trip, with a lot of content, reported by the guide, with visits to different perspectives and locations of the Blue Mountains. We visited several locations, points of interest, trails and parks. It was a very busy day, with enough time for the different points and moments of the tour. I recommend!

Amazing insight into opera house and how it was built!
