This is without a doubt the highlight of our 10 day Australia trips (Sydney/Melbourne/Gold Coast)! The private tour with Adam was simply amazing, worth every cent! We were brought to the one of the best part in Blue Mountains with amazing views (plus 0 tourist!! secluded area that not many people know!) Adam was super energetic and engaging, we even called him Mr. Everything!!! We went to the best spots, learnt amazing stuffs from Adam, had the best coffee and picnic at the best spot in Blue Mountain accompanied by breathtaking view!!! Will definitely come back for another adventure with you guys.
We were taken on a 4wd personalised tour to the Blue Mountains. The service was excellent and we were taken to places that tour buses couldn't reach. It was absolutely breathtaking and will definitely do it again next time I visit NSW. The highlight of the day was our delicious picnic lunch as they set up a white table cloth table and we dined overlooking the canyon! It is almost surreal! Gynes made our day truly exceptional with his enthusiasm, extensive knowledge of history, geology, nature and his attention to detail was extraordinary. In my opinion, seeing the Blue Mountains “off road” in this manner is really the ONLY way to go to create a “once in the life time” experience! Highly recommended!
