Three stops of 45 minutes...
Adam_M
, Apr 2022
Three stops of 45 minutes managed to take an 11 hour day. There's not much to this tour you can't do yourself. Not impressed with the insight or information - more stories of the guides personal family history than our surroundings.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Hi Adam, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your experience of the tour. I have emailed you directly to invite you to provide further details so that we can better understand how we so clearly failed to meet your expectations. I haven't heard back yet but thought I should respond here in the meantime for the benefit of others that are considering joining us on the tour. I still welcome hearing from you if you choose to share more about your experience. I acknowledge that only you can speak to your experience but I do think it important to address the facts. As you note, it is a big day out from 7.30am to 6.30pm for a total of 11 hours. However, the tour is composed of much more than "Three stops of 45 minutes". If that were the case the tour would not have earned over five hundred 5 star reviews, on TripAdvisor, Google Reviews, GetYourGuide, Expedia and Airbnb Experiences, including one from Chelsea that was on the same tour as you and Brandon on Tuesday: "Our tour guide was fantastic! A lot of tidbits to share about Sydney on the drive. Made sure we had a great experience at every stop. Loved it!" I am very sorry that you were disappointed with the day. I'm very conscious that when you are travelling, your time is limited. And that most of the time, every day, every experience is a one time opportunity. So if we don't provide you with a great experience on the day you've chosen to spend with us, we've failed you and we've failed in what we set out to do - every time. Once again, I invite you to share further details of your experience with me so that I can address them appropriately. Cheers, Steve

A great bloke and memorable tour!

When I showed up for the tour, Steve greeted me right away. He told me I was the only one booked! I told him I would completely understand if he wanted to cancel, but he said "no" to that and that he would be giving me a one-on-one guided tour! The day was fulfilling and of course, my favorite part was the interaction with the Koalas. We spent some good time at the wildlife park and went to the see the waterfalls via the Sea Cliff Bridge and Fitzroy Falls and finished up with the wine tasting at Centennial Winery in Bowral. Steve could have tried to cut everything short but he was as thorough as he would have been with a full tour. We also had great discussion throughout the day on a myriad of topics. Consequently, I was leaving for Adelaide the next day and my booking for a wine tour in the Barossa was cancelled because I was the only one booked. Seems Steve is the only one who gets it done. Thanks for a great time Steve!

Hey Greg, Thanks for the detailed follow up review. I really do appreciate you taking the time to let others know that you had a great time - and why. To be fair though, I should thank you for saving me from a day at the keyboard updating our website! Enjoy the NSW wine. Cheers, Steve

A tour of one - NOT cancelled!

It turned out that because of the time of year among other things, I was the ONLY person that booked the tour. Did Steve cancel? It would have been understandable if he did, but he kept it! We did the full tour and have great dialog all throughout the day! The visit with the Koalas was of course the best! We finished with Centennial Winery in Bowral and they were amazing too! Just to think that it was a custom guided tour only for me! Steve, you’re a champion mate! Thanks for keeping your word! The blokes here in Adelaide (Buttsinseats) cancelled MY tour to the Barossa because not enough people signed up.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2020
Hey Greg, It was great to meet you and take you on the tour. I'm so happy you enjoyed the day. I get that everyone is super keen to just get out and do stuff. There's been enough uncertainty this year so I was delighted to help you do what you'd planned to do. Besides, I just love being out there too! Cheers, Steve PS. I hope you wound up your Adelaide friends when you showed up with NSW wines :-)

This was the highlight of our entire trip. Being able to get up and close with the koalas was awesome! Our tour guide, the "other" Steve, was great! He was full of information and was able to make our day enjoyable. To end the tour with wine tasting was great! I highly recommend this tour.

Hey Chgo_Friends, We nailed it! You can't imagine what a boost it is to know that your day with us was the highlight of your entire trip. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback and to highly recommend the tour. There's nothing like spreading the love! Cheers, Steve

Best tour experience ever!
Doug_C
, Feb 2020
This was without question the best tour we've taken -- and we've taken a lot! Our driver/guide Steve ("other" Steve, not owner Steve) was friendly, entertaining, and very knowledgeable. We were initially a bit concerned that an 11-hour tour would include lots of boring idle time, but this was far from it. The experience was full from start to finish. It was a great combination of sights, wildlife, mountains, beach, waterfalls, and a delicious lunch, topped off with an excellent wine tasting experience. We highly recommend it!
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
Thanks Doug! That just might be the best review ever! And it's was Steve's first day. Imagine what he'll be like in another week or so 😀. Seriously though, we've both been doing this for decades now and it's feedback like yours that makes it such a pleasure to continue showing visitors to Sydney the wonders of Australia. Thanks so much for going to the effort of sharing your experience with Steve and for highly recommending the tour to others travellers. Now I can't wait to get out on tour again tomorrow! Cheers, Steve (owner Steve, not "other" Steve)

Nice full day trip with the owner Steve who was marvelous Wildlife center, beach lunch and winery were great. Forest was a little long.
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
Hi Ross, It was a pleasure to have you and Shelley along on the tour. Thanks so much for taking the time to pay it forward and share your experience with other potential travellers. Although the forest walk is around a mile or less it is a bit long for some so it's valuable for potential guests to know that before they book. Cheers, Steve

Excellent tour , knowledgeable guide ! We didn't see the falls because of the fire. Highly recommended !

Hi Nicole, We never get tired of guests highly recommending our tour to others! Thanks so much for taking the time to spread the word. And some great news to share! After the bushfires we've had in some parts of the country, particularly over the Christmas and New Year period, we've seen an easing of weather conditions and even had quite a bit of rain over the past few days. That means we are once again operating normally and can walk to see the Yarrunga Valley and Fitzroy Falls. Cheers, Steve

Hi Lucy, I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed your day with Steve and that you got so much out of the tour. Our aim is to give visitors a broad sampling of Australia whilst avoiding the crowds and without rushing about. So thank you very much for sharing your appreciation for what we do. Cheers, Steve (the other one!)

This is a must
Kristin_V

This tour was absolutely amazing! Steve, not the owner, was absolutely hilarious and extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Australia. The koalas were a big hit, as well as the roos and wallabies. Centennial Wine was fantastic with a delicious raspberry dessert wine. The waterfall in the Blue Mountains was also beautiful. This was one of our favorite days of honeymoon in Australia. I would recommend to everyone!
icon Response from Host , Aug 2019
Yes, he's the funnier Steve. No need to rub it in! Seriously then, it's wonderful to hear that it was one of your "favorite days of honeymoon in Australia". I can't think of a nicer way to hear that we're doing what we set out to do! Thank you so much for taking the time to share you experience and for recommending the tour to others. I'll make sure Steve receives your feedback - even at the risk of him needing to go up a hat size :-) Cheers, Steve (the less funny one) PS. Just to clarify to anyone reading this review, the waterfall we visit is in the Morton National Park in the Southern Highlands, not in the Blue Mountains. We incorporated the Southern Highlands as a glimpse of the Blue Mountains for those that don't have a full day to go there because the two areas are geologically and scenically very similar.

Exploring the Southern side of Sydney with Steve!
Sue_P
, Aug 2019
My Aunt and I had a fabulous time exploring and experiencing the hidden gems in Southern Sydney. From the wonderful wildlife park with a private encounter with a Koala named Harry, to the yummy beach bar lunch this tour had it all! && the wine! We brought five bottles home between us! Steve was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about what Sydney has to offer. This tour also stood out because it takes you away from the crazy hustle and bustle of the city and away from typical tourists spots to really get an Australian experience.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2019
koalatoo Great name! It was a pleasure to have you and Sue along on the day and to show you what I agree are hidden gems to the south of Sydney. Seems like Handsome Harry has won over more hearts this week too. Enjoy the memories. And, of course, that delightful cool-climate wine! Cheers, Steve

The Perfect Day Trip from Sydney
rbartels747
, Aug 2019
WW&W exceeded expectations on every element of the trip. Steve, #1, the owner and tour operator, is well-informed (he grew up in the area), congenial (answers any and every question), and was willing to hike us off the beaten track to see a Lyrebird’s courtship ritual in action. Great sense of humor too. The lunch was delicious; sites all interesting; the small group vibe very comfortable. Getting close to nature - after a week in the city - was perfect and I have now fallen in love with the southern highlands (the ranches, thermos and the red wines). Well worth the extra dough!

Hi Rob, I'm delighted to hear the day exceeded your expectations so comprehensively! It was my pleasure to show you all around my old stomping grounds. Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback with others that may be considering joining the tour. Cheers, Steve

Fun Experience

Steve was great, very knowledgeable about everything from the type of plants we saw on out trek through the Park to the types of animals we saw. Started out with a trip to the Wildlife reserve. Took pic and pet a koala then fed the kangaroos and explored. Then went to a national park to get a look at several waterfalls. Had a bit of a trek through the woods to look at some birds. Then went to a boutique winery, which had tasty wines We tried about 8-10 wines. All very small pours. My only complaint was that there should be more wine involved, less of the forest trek.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2019
Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience and happy to hear it was fun. Sounds like it might have been even "funner" if there was more wine involved :-). Hope you found a good watering hole back in Sydney - there are lots of great ones! To clarify for anyone reading this that might be considering taking the tour, the day includes a short hike along a forest path of about one and a half kilometres (about one mile return) and includes 50-60 steps down and about the same number up again. We'll sometimes divert into the bush to spot wildlife, particularly the male Superb Lyrebird that is singing his heart out for the ladies at this time of year. (You can find some photos and video on our accounts on a couple of well-known social media sites!). The final activity of the day is a wine tasting at one of the boutique vineyards in the Southern Highlands where you get to sample some of the region's cool-climate wines. Cheers, Steve

I had a wonderful and amazing full day tour with Steve! He drove us around suburbs to see where the locals are living, stopping by interesting spots and scenic routes. No quiet moments, he’s always sharing information during the drive and walks! Unless the entire bus fell asleep because of major food coma. He bought us to a local restaurant with great ocean view for lunch, food was excellent! 1-1 close up time with koala and unforgettable moments with kangaroos. Trekking up national park to beautiful scenery and managed to catch Long glimpse of lyrebirds singing away. Steve is a really thoughtful guy and was kind to lend us fleece jacket when it gotten really cold. He got us back in Sydney on time and left us fond memories of Australia’s hospitality

The perfect day tour from Sydney!

Unlike other tours, this took us through multiple national parks, through scenic outlooks, to a delicious beachside lunch (not just pub food!!) and to an animal habitat that allowed us to get up close and personal to koalas and feed kangaroos out of our hands! Other places you can only feed them through the fences!! Our tour guide Steve was friendly, knowledgeable, punctual, and really went out of his way to give us a great experience. Definitely recommend!!
