Kangaroo and sunset too

Bruce our driver guide and kangaroo whisperer was excellent. We saw dozens of kangaroos a lot of them with Joeys, because Bruce went over the top to satisfy us. Even the sunset was wonderful. Thank you Bruce.

Great Fun!

Bruce was terrific! And resourceful. On the day of our experience, both National Parks were closed due to flooding. Bruce took us further out of Sydney to a remote neighborhood. Amazing. We saw at least 10 kangaroos and visited a few different spots. Bruce was a great conversationalist as well. Very knowledgeable about kangaroos and also extremely well travelled. It made for a fun few hours together. We had a great day and even got a few photos and videos of kangaroos running across a green space. Bruce brought binoculars for us to enjoy. It gave us a chance to get a closer look.

Wonderful walking with wild kangaroos

Bruce did an awesome job of keeping us entertained through conversation on the drive from our hotel to where we could find wild kangaroos. The national park he took us to had male, female, and joeys - we were able to see some out on open grassy areas and others in the brush/bush. Bruce also pointed out other wildlife that we would not see where we are from. Highly recommend you give this trip serious priority!

It was so exciting to see wild Kangaroos! We took some great pictures and it was such an experience to see them jumping across a field. And seeing a Joey nursing from his mother's pouch! Bruce gave us lots of information about kangaroos and Australia in general. It was a wonderful tour that I would recommend to everyone.

Excellent Time

This tour might have been the highlight of our week-long trip to Australia. Our tour guide, Bruce Josephs, was engaging and well-versed on the subject of Kangaroos. He took us to a remote part of the Sydney metropolitan area where we saw hundreds of free-roaming Kangaroos. We didn't get too close to them (they are wild animals, after all) but we were able to take dozens of pictures and videos. It was a great time and I highly recommend this tour to any visitors!

Awesome Amazing

Bruce the guide was awesome. We hoped to see kangaroos and we saw so many it far exceeded our expectations. Started with a spotless clean car that’s semi-battery so when we are close that the car engine doesn’t scare them. We went through a neighborhood where we saw kangaroos then to a national park and walked through a field and watched about 10-15 of them enjoying the vegetation from about 10 feet away. We saw amazing birds including the beautiful Rainbow laurakeets. When the tour was over Bruce was supposed to drop us at the Ferry - well he stopped there and checked it out first to be sure it was running which it was not and then took us to the train station. I’m sure another guide may have dropped us and drove off. The tour was supposed to be 3-1/2 hours, at 4 hours Bruce said if you guys have just a few more minutes we can take a drive to a park where I know the cockatoo hang out at night. They are amazing birds. Bruce was more interested in our tour and seeing the wildlife than he was the clock. He was awesome and I would recommend him and this tour to anyone.

Halbtagstour von Sydney zu Kängurus in der Wildnis
kupet2018
, Oct 2018
Der Ausflug war tatsächlich wie vereinbart nur für uns zwei, die Betreuung durch unseren Guide wirklich ausgezeichnet. Er ist sehr freundlich auf alle Wünsche eingegangen. Wir haben mehr als 50 Kängurus gesehen und tolle Bilder gemacht, auch von Babies, die fröhlich aus dem Beutel der Mutter schauen. Außerdem haben wir diverse australische Vogelarten gesehen und viele Tips für unseren Aufenthalt in Australien erhalten. Wer nur wenig Zeit Sydney hat und gern Kängurus sehen möchte sollte unbedingt diese Tour buchen
