The pretty part of the country if you love green

Great trip! Very busy, loved the animal park and seeing the mountains and country! We had seen the cities and this allowed us to experience greenery and people.
In depth discovery of Blue Mountains

We enjoyed this tour a lot. Well organised, well-balanced and carried out with professionalism and great commitment. Avoided the big crowded places and went for the more secretive lookouts. To be recommended.

We had a great experience with a private guide to the Blue Mountains full day trip. Was a good thing to do and great area to visit while in Sydney
Fantastic scenery- Great Day

Our group of 4 was picked up promptly at 7:15 by Vonn for a private tour. We were the first to arrive at Featherdale. Did our picture with the Koala , hand fed the numerous kangaroos and saw the native birds and animals. We then headed to the Blue Mountains for hiking. Amazing scenery and waterfalls ! Vonn provided lots of good commentary. We then drove to see the Three Sisters and Orphan rock . After that short walk , we picked up a good lunch and headed out for another hike to view the mountains from a different vantage point. We had a picnic with a fabulous view. The last stop was at the Botanical Gardens. 90 minute drive back to Sydney. So glad we saw this special part of Sydney.
Wonderful day even in the rain

We are experienced travelers and were very wary about taking a tour - we wanted to walk the trails and really "see" things as opposed to the touristy sites. Jelle was the perfect guide for our expectations. We were a little concerned because we had a rainy day yet we were headed to a day in the outdoors. He had checked the weather and adjusted our morning accordingly. We started with a side trip, down a dirt road (not something a tour bus can do) to a camping area where we were greeted by a "herd" of grazing kangaroos who politely posed for our cameras. We spent the rest of the day chasing the clouds and, when the rain lifted, we walked out to the spectacular vista at Pulpit Point (down another dirt road unvisited by tour buses). At that point, we did not care that the famous 3 Sisters were a foggy bust. Lunch was in a small local restaurant with delicious homemade fare and hot "long black" coffee. If you want the tourist gig - I am sure Jelle can provide it but he will definitely make sure you'll see the stuff that you actually want to see but didn't know was out there because it doesn't make the must-see TripAdvisor cut.
