I was in Sydney for work for a limited time due to work commitments, and my 22-year-old daughter accompanied me so we could spend some time together. Since my daughter loves to hike, I really wanted to add a visit to the Blue Mountains. Michael did an INCREDIBLE job tailoring our day to our interests and timelines. He took us to a spot where we could see a huge number of kangaroos in their natural habitat lounging in the sun, for part of the days we were away from the typical tourist areas just as we had asked. Michael was also very flexible throughout, picking us up from different locations everyday and dropping us off elsewhere, allowing us to go sightseeing at night on our own. I HIGHLY recommend 5 Star Sydney Tours; we had a great experience for a really reasonable price for a personal, two-person tour.
Michael was our tour guide for the city of Sydney and for the Blue Mountains. He picked us up from our hotel and showed us a great time for two days. His vehicle was great and made us feel like VIP’s. He was personable and knew a lot about the area. We noticed that we managed to go everywhere where the big tour buses were not able. We love animals and he let us spend as much time as we wanted feeding and touching them. He also made recommendations for the rest of our trip. I highly recommend him and would book him again if available.
What a guy, what a tour!!! We went all the way by booking a third day (Hunter Vineyards) and my wife, brother and I spent 3 days with this company, were in Sydney for a short time and felt that our investment was well worth it. Our guide was so good; he tried not to get stuck in traffic (a difficult thing in Sydney), got us to see the harbour from the water free of charge. The car is extremely comfortable and Michael very knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
Michael is an AMAZING tour guide. His knowledge of the Sydney, the Blue Mountains and surrounding area is fabulous. He does an excellent job of sharing his knowledge. He was always punctual and picked us up on time and from exactly where he said he was going to do, organised and an excellent communicator. Michael was very patient with our son that had sprained an ankle. His Spanish is excellent and he has a wonderful sense of humour. We can't recommend him enough!
I would give our guide 10 out of 5 if I could! He truly made our trip around Sydney and The Blue Mountains an incredibly, memorable and educational occasion. He is so knowledgeable and was very thorough in the way he organised the tour, this operator was very responsive to the changes we requested. His knowledge of the local sites and traffic, culture and history of the environment made our visit extra special. We were able to skip long queues and get the best photo angles due to his experience. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
