It was the best tour I had in Australia, without hesitation! ... the place was just amazing and I had a chance to swim in the falls! At the end of the walk, I mentioned that I had never seen any kangoroos in Oz yet and they took us to a valley where we could spot kangaroos! ..certainly worth every $ I have paid! If I ever go back to Sydney, I would definitely try to do another walk. Thanks for making it so enjoyable!!! Please never ever change the way you are!
My 2 girlfriends and I travelled for a little over 2 weeks in Australia and the Blue Mountains Valley of the Waterfalls hike by Life's an Adventure was one of our favourite experiences of the entire trip. Our guide was a phenomenal and enthusiastic guide and his love for the Blue Mountains really came out as he took us around. The sights are unbelievable and the beauty of the Blue Mountains is really spectacular. Our guide also picked us up in Sydney and then dropped us off at any place we wanted in the city on the way back, which was so nice and made it very easy for us to start our night out! You must make this hike a part of your Sydney itinerary!
