What we'll do

Come on the most intimate and special Blue Mountains experience!

Enjoy a day out in the Blue Mountains beyond the tourist crowds with Peter, a passionate local. This small-group tour takes a maximum of 4 people, so you're assured a top-quality, personal and safe experience. Your day starts with an early pick-up from Strathfield train station. You'll head straight for the Blue Mountains and hike a trail away from the busy tourist hub, passing waterfalls, visiting photogenic and tranquil lookouts, and taking in views from the clifftops. This is one of Peter's favourite places to hike and it's a wilderness area that's listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

You'll also stop by a gallery to see works by established local artists, check out some unexpected street art, and visit cafes to discuss barista techniques and share Australia's love for coffee. This tour has a unique flexible itinerary and as you travel by private vehicle, you get to places others don't go. For independently-minded travellers, this is the tour for you!

        Really enjoyed my day

        I chose this experience because I wanted to see Blue Mountains avoiding a big crowd of people and because Peter offers also some art spots and only the hike. No delusion! It was really amazing. Even if there was a lot of smoke of bushfires he didnt cancel the trip and customized the itinerary so I was able to see at least some parts of the national park. In between he showed me some local spots for coffee and food, an art gallery with a very interesting collection of artworks and a street art spot. I really enjoyed my day with Peter and I think that there is no a better option if you want to enjoy the Blue Mountains area on your own or with few friends.

        Beautiful amazing location with a great guide!

        I really wanted to go see the blue mountains and not be in a huge group. I chose Peter's experience and it was just what I was looking for. It was the perfect mix for the day. Peter knows the area very well and took me to out of the way locations. He even did the tour for just me when no one else signed up on the day I choose. A beautiful amazing location with a great guide!

        Had an amazing time

        Peter is a an amazing person. He made the experience so fun and unique. I wanted to experience the Blue Mountains away from the tourist crowds and this was absolutely perfect. I ended up being the only person on the tour that day and had an amazing time. Dont over think it, trust Peter, and book bow!

        Great day out

        This is a great day out and great value for money. Peter is incredibly knowledgable on the area and educated me on everything from the history of the mountains to the local wildlife and fauna. He also likes his coffee, as do I, do it was nice to take a break for a mid-morning brew at an excellent independent coffee shop. He likes to utilise the local businesses of the area which is great to see. 10/10 would recommend taking this trip.

        Really great tour

        Really great tour of the Blue Mountains, not an overly strenuous hike (though I hike more than some, I would've liked more, but I think it was the right amount for the group we had). Lots of little spots that are a bit off the beaten path and really helpful to have a local to show us around. Peter was a good storyteller and guide for the birds/wildlife/rock formations as well as the art and coffee :) Overall, a great experience and wonderful way to spend a day!
