BLUE MOUNTAINS & FEATHERDALE WILDLIFE PARK

We begin at Featherdale Wildlife Park to get up close and personal with kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, wombats, dingoes, echidnas, emus, cassowaries, Tasmanian devils, a saltwater crocodile and many other Australian natives

Then on to the Blue Mountains, where you’ll experience the majesty and vast, wild beauty of a heritage-listed national park. Grab spectacular views of the Three Sisters and Katoomba Falls from Eaglehawk Lookout and see the Megalong Valley from Cahills Lookout. Ride the the Scenic Railway and Scenic Cableway into the Jamison Valley for rainforest walks, and grab a final view of the valley from the Scenic Skyway, as well as visiting the quaint mountain towns of Leura and Katoomba

Breathtaking scenery, unique native animals, and the option of taking the Rivercat back to the city at the end of the day

“We had an absolutely perfect day with Peter on the 8-hour private tour to the Blue Mountains. Peter picked us up promptly at our hotel and we enjoyed a comfortable ride and great conversation along the way. The weather cooperated with us beautifully. Peter knows all the best spots to stop for great views of the mountains and we were the first people to enter the park at Featherdale and had it all to ourselves for quite sometime before the tour buses arrived. Peter dropped us off at the ferry station to grab a boat ride home (our choice, he offered to take us directly back to our hotel but we wanted a waterfront tour on the way home). I can’t recommend Peter enough, he runs a great tour and we had a fabulous time, a highlight of an amazing vacation in Australia.”

” Peter made sure we were the first ones there and we had the park all to ourselves! At the Blue Mountains he found us private lookout spots (others tours had not arrived yet) so we could capture the perfect photos. If you need a knowledgeable guide to teach you about the city then Peter is your man!”

“Peter knew where the best places for pictures were and got us parked close and near the attractions we had come to see. I don’t know if you have ever had a private tour but it sure beats waiting on 40 people to pile in and out of a bus while you wait for that one couple that can’t tell time. We were able to get in a lot of sites and Peter was still able to get us to the Ferry ride where we had the best view of the Sydney Opera House. Blue Mountains, Featherdale wild life preserve, a nice sit down lunch and various other tour sites on the way including the 3 sisters, the both Sky lift rides and the 52 degrees decent train ride. Thank you Peter! Well done!”

“We had a great time on our private tour with Peter. We got to Featherdale when it first opened and we had lots of time to pet and feed the animals before it got crowded. The weather wasn’t the best, but Peter found a place where we had some amazing valley views. The restaurant where we had lunch was excellent. Peter patiently answered all our questions about Australia. We decided to have him drop us off in Manly and we took the ferry back to Sydney. A very enjoyable day”

“Peter was an excellent guide. He was very nice and very knowledgeable about Australia. He knew the backroads, to get around traffic around the city, and that moved us along well. Peter also got us to the front of the lines at Featherdale and Scenic World and knew both which attractions were worth our time as well as the best way to avoid the crowds. He also booked a super cool lunch place in Leura, up in the mountains. We were very happy with the tour and would recommend him to others. We would also hire him for any other tours we would plan to do around Sydney in the future.”

“Everything was great, from the pick up at our hotel, getting any and all questions about Australia answered, to being the first ones in at Featherdale, and of course the spectacular beauty of the Blue Mountains. We opted to take the ferry back into Sydney the last several miles and had great views of the bridge and Opera House coming back into Circular Quay… It was a very full day and well worth the cost to have our own private guide who really was great in every respect”

“Through the day, we saw:
– Featherdale Wildlife Park. What a treat! We were literally the first to enter the park, having the animals to ourselves for some time, thanks to Peter’s timing.
– Scenic World – including all the traditional rides (Skyway, Railway – twice, and Cableway) and all the scenery of two great hikes (Furber Steps, and a waterfall trek)
– Nice mountain villages, including a nice stop for lunch
– An excellent cliff hike
We covered a lot of ground, and Peter was a great guide – sharing his insights and the day never felt rushed. Check out his website directly, which had good itinerary ideas, FAQs, and booking options”

“We started early so that we could be at the Featherdale Wildlife Park by 8 am {tours get in early]. A huge number of animals to see and feed. We had never witnessed koalas running around on the ground before [they were hungry]. I highly recommend Featherdale. We then headed to the Scenic Railway and the Blue Mountains. Peter had a plan to ride all of the rides at the Railway and worked in a downhill hike for us [much better than an uphill hike]. Please note that everything on the tour was customizable and at our own pace”

“Peter was very helpful and happy to tailor the day to what we wanted for our trip. On the day of the trip Peter was on time and extremely friendly when he pulled up to pick us up which made us feel at ease straight away. We had a terrific day with Peter and would not hesitate to recommend him or book him again if we visited Sydney. Thank you Peter. Had an excellent time!”

“We were the first through the gates at Featherdale Wildlife Park which was great to be able to see all the animals and feed some of them. Peter does not rush you and is very flexible to make sure you see all you want. We then headed up to the Blue Mountains and Echo Point was a stunning viewpoint. Peter then showed us parts of Scenic World away from other people so you could experience the peace and quiet. The Blue Mountains are amazingly beautiful and it was great to see them on a private tour rather than being herded on and off a big coach. We have already booked another tour with Peter”

“Peter has a well oiled system with his online booking and communications. He sends you information before and after your tour with useful tips around Sydney. While it’s not included in a normal tour guide job, that is nice to have that extra contact with questions of what restaurant, bar, store, etc… even before you meet. For our tour we went to the Blue Mountains and Eastern suburbs of Sydney. He talked as much as we wanted and stayed quiet when we fell asleep in the car”

(James K Houston, Texas Reviewed 15 June 2017)

 

“Peter knew exactly when to get us to Scenic World in time to beat the big tour buses and which ride to go on first. He basically managed our timing so well that we didn’t really notice any crowds. We also beat the crowds at Featherdale and had plenty of time with the animals (so happy we weren’t rushed through this experience!) He took us to a great lunch spot as well called the Leura Garage where we had one of the best meals of our trip. What I liked best was that a day out with Peter doesn’t give you the feeling of being “on a tour.” It’s more like you’re hanging out with your Australian friend who is fun to be around, knows all the best places to go, has lots of local knowledge, and takes you to the best spot for lunch. He even managed to keep our 11-year-old daughter engaged which was great!”

“Peter is very helpful, he always reply my email and explain everything patiently. Peter was on time picking us up in my accommodation at 7am. The car was very comfortable. I traveled with my husband at 5th May 2017, to Blue Mountain and Jenolan Caves. Peter made the ambiance comfortable, even he offered us to sleep if we want. He shared a lot of information about Sydney along the way. He knows how to avoid the crowd, and helped us to pick the best position when join the steepest railway at the Blue Mountain”

“He turned up on time at our Hotel in his smart and spotless van and drove us off to the Featherdale Wildlife Park where we were granted admission before the general public arrived. We then drove on to the Blue Mountains and Scenic World. Despite the crowds there, Peter guided us to the less crowded spots and walks. He proved knowledgeable and was happy to answer questions but didn’t provide the full on “in-your-face” commentary”

“It is the little things that make the difference. From knowing which seats to get on a tram for the best views to suggesting that we all stay still to just hear the beauty and sound of the rain forest. We feel like we have made a new friend that we would welcome into our home any time he comes to the States. I can’t not rate Peter highly enough. You will NOT be disappointed”
