Sydney Great Escapes is a family owned and run business. We pride ourselves on being able to provide you with a unique insight and memorable experience. We specialise in smaller, more personalised, boutique tours. Our late model Mercedes sprinters carry a maximum of 14 passengers, they have been uniquely designed with extra leg room, extra height and reclining coach seats, for that more comfortable ride. Our team of tour guides has been handpicked for their vast experience of local knowledge and represent our company with pride. We have guides who are specialised in the Blue Mountains, Hunter Valley, Port Stephens, and Sydney areas. You can be guaranteed that your guide will have a wealth of knowledge on whichever tour you take.

This is a great tour to see the Blue Mountains with a more intimate experience. Your tour guide is a local brain of knowledge and he can answer any questions you may have. At each stop you are able to do your own thing unlike other tour companies that are micromanaged. You have plenty of time at each stop with... More

Rob's brilliant, love him for his humor and endless fun. He kept us entertained throughout the comfortable bus ride with interesting facts of our surroundings. It's great that we goes to Featherdale in the morning and gets to feed the animals their breakfast. Strongly recommend them! <3

I had visited Blue Mountain 10 years ago. The view has been always stunning even though we visit it again 10 years afterwards. The weather on the day when we went again was unstable. Intermittent rainfall and occasionally misty drizzle throughout the morning. Originally, we were unable to see Three Sisters. By the time we inteded to leave, a beam... More

We went on the Blue Mountains tour with Rob as our guide. It was a rainy day and all other guests had cancelled their tour -- Rob did not. Rob conducted the tour with just me and my travel companion. Large golf umbrellas were provided. We arrived at Featherdale Wildlife Park early enough that there were only 4 other customers... More

First positive - hotel pickup and quick exit to Featherdale Wildlife Park. Arrived at opening time before the crowds and coaches so plenty of time to see a full range of native species before they went to sleep (except Tasmanian Devil who beat us to it). Rob the driver/owner/guide kept up a constant commentary - informative and full of Aussie... More

Long overdue review, but here it is... Went on a day trip to Blue Mountains in May with Sydney Great Escapes with no expectations. Did not expect VIP service - we were the only 2 passengers that day! Rob kept us entertained throughout the journey with his travel anecdotes/experiences, which at most time hilarious.. Also, to meet the 'family' along... More

Wow! This is one of the smaller day trip operators but so worth seeking out and engaging this company! Rob, our guide, picked us up spot on time and regaled us with his Aussie wit and humor from start to finish. He wasn't off put by our incessant questions, patiently answering with his acerbic humor...Ask him for the names of... More
