Description

There are over 4 million people who live in Sydney. Whenever you have that many people living in one place, you are bound to create some unique sightseeing locations and interesting urban haunts. With all of the "cool" and "hip" things going on, it's a wonder that anybody would want to leave! Despite this, there is one thing that has remained constant for visitors to Sydney: a pull to the Blue Mountains.

This World Heritage site draws in travelers for good reason and we'll bring you to the best spots in the surrounding area while avoiding the crowds. Wentworth Falls is a three tier waterfall that, when flowing strong, stands as one of the most impressive locations throughout the entire national park. A short walk to a viewing platform will provide uninterrupted views of its source and the final landing place at the bottom of the mountains, approximately 615 feet below. Near Wentworth Falls is the mountain town of Katoomba. Here, you will grab lunch and explore life in an Australian mountain town. If you can imagine it, some people even make a commute to Sydney for their job, grasping at that perfect balance between nature and city life.

The "Three Sisters" often serve as the face of Blue Mountain National Park, and their unique geographic characteristics provide an amazing opportunity for photos. After the guide tells you the story about their legend, it will add even greater meaning every time you re-visit those pictures. Throughout your tour, you'll be able to take advantage of your guide's knowledge of the area by heading to places big buses can't go, sometimes leaving just your small group as the only travelers in sight and the Blue Mountains everywhere you turn!

The story of the "Three Sisters" has its roots in Aboriginal culture, whose members were the first to occupy this land. At the Waradah Aboriginal Center, just down the street from one of the best known views of the mountains, you will learn about communities unique to Australia. Through a staged show, you will hear about everything from the origin of the didgeridoo to the relationship indigenous Australians made with the nature you just explored.

Koalas! Kangaroos! Emus! We get it, everyone wants to check out these animals when in Australian and we don't blame you. Rather than shoving you into the bush, we'll take you to the Featherdale Wildlife Park for a chance to get up close and personal with native wildlife.

It would be a shame to drive back the way you came, so we'll get you on a river cruise back to the harbor, passing under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and into one of the most beautiful ports in the world!

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
