We enjoyed our tour with Lyndal who was accompanied by our driver Russell in an eight passenger van. After leaving Sydney, the weather unfortunately became misty and foggy at the Blue Mountains making it impossible to see the sights or taken any of the local excursions. Lyndal was flexible in adjusting our itinerary so that we returned to Sydney via a scheduled stop at the Featherdale Wildlife Park and then sightseeing in some of the lovely Sydney residential neighborhoods and Bondi Beach.

Traveled to the Blue Mountains with Lyndal on Day 3 of our great Australian adventure. Because we had done the Historic Rocks tour already with Lyndal we knew we were in for a great experience. On this tour Lyndal had a driver, Russell, who did all the driving so Lyndal could narrate. We saw not only the tourist type stuff but experienced the feel of being a native. We even had lunch at this renovated automotive garage where the food was fantastic. In summary a fantastic day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Randy, what a great couple of days we shared! And BIG thank you for the Koala donations from your family.

She knew the region well. Our tour was fasinating. It was everything we dreamed of and more. Great rides also in the blue mountains
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lovely to share the day with you both!!! Thank you
Very kind, sweet and informative. Friendly and caring.

The Blue Mountains are beautiful and worth the trip. Near-vertical train ride is fun (not as scary as it looks). Lyndal had all logistics for travel and tickets taken care of, so we could just relax and enjoy. It's a bit of a drive out, but this gave us an opportunity to talk and learn about Australia. Lyndal is an experienced and knowledgeable guide who is also fun!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lovely day out with you Peggy! Thank you.

What an amazing day!! Thank you again Lyndal (and Russel). We were well cared for and educated! Lyndal answered our endless (9 hours worth) questions - flora, fauna, history, geological formations, culture and many other esoteric topics - with humor and exceptional knowledge. She facilitated our entrance into places that required tickets and offered additional insight into how to best enjoy theses sights. One of the best tour guides I have ever had!

Lyndal is a true professional with a cheery spirit! She picked us up at our hotel and took us to the Blue Mountain area. We had a wonderful day with Lyndal, as she filled us in on lots of local informations and fun stories. She knew all of the best places to stop for photos, food and more. She really knows her stuff. Lyndal was such a pleasure and we would recommend her to anyone!

Another very well organized and wonderful tour by Lyndal with assistance from her driver, Russell. We got to see even more than we had hoped and everything was done so seamlessly. Provided great insights into the pertinent history of the area but also gave a lot of personal input about their experiences living in the Sydney and Blue Mountain area.
Barry G.United States
Lyndal planned a super day for us in the Blue Mountains and shared an amazing amount of Australian history and other interesting information. Our tour was flexible and allowed us choices based on our own desires and limitations. On the way back from the Blue Mountain area she showed us some areas in Sydney we might enjoy exploring. It was a great day!

Lyndal was fabulous, on time, prepared, fun loving and welcoming. The tour was great although I wish we had a bit more time at the animal park even with skipping the "cultural show". The up-close experience with the animals was special. The Blue Mountain area was beautiful and Lyndal was able to enrich the experience with her vast knowledge of history, culture and more.
Robert RutkowskiUnited States
Lyndal is clearly one of the best guides in Australia. On time, pleasant manner, awesome knowledge/experience. Well planned tour including changing the schedule to avoid crowds. We were very fortunate to book her. You will be too. The highest recommendation possible.

The tour was amazing and Lyndal was knowledgeable and accommodating. We were able to work around the crowds at the Blue Mountains and they made special stops at our request. I would highly recommend this tour and highly recommend Lyndal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Delightful days with your family Jeff!! Thanks for visiting our corner of the woods!!!
Karen W.United States
My group of family and friends were incredibly thankful to Lyndal for the wonderful day. We started at the Featherdale Wildlife Park, which was our favorite animal experience in Australia, then travelled on to Leura and the Blue Mountains. Such beautiful scenery. We really appreciated Lyndal's knowledge and thoughtfulness and the personal touches that made our day truly memorable. We're sorry we could not spend more time with her!
Lyndal showed us a very scenic view of sydney. She also showed us a very secluded, quiet and romantic restaurant where we had lunch with an excellent view of the scenery. A day before that, she showed us the beautiful residential areas of Watson Bay and the Dover Heights. This is certainly a tour that should not be missed and we would certainly recommmend Lyndal should anyone be looking for a private guide in Sydney. She is very expreienced and knowlegeable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lai, I had a delightful two days with you! It was a privilege to be part of your 30th wedding anniversary celebration... And for me to learn so much about Malaysia in return. God give you both happiness for another 30years. Lyndal
