Amazing 2 days in the Blue Mountains. Jelle of Dingo tours was a fantastic guide bursting with knowledge and took us to the most wonderful places without crowds. We stopped by wild wallabies and kangaroos and lots of birds. Platypus spotting was my personal highlight. Despite the awful weather on day 2 we still managed some short walks in beautiful spots. Would recommend this trip rather than the typical one day trip. Can't thank Jelle enough for s superb two days.

This is a must-experience for all those who love nature. 2 days full immersion into the wildlife, geography, nature, history and culture of the Blue Mountains and Australia. Jelle has been an outstanding host, much more than a mere guide: very kind, forthcoming - and he just knows it all. Incredible what we saw, experienced, heard, felt and learned in just two days. A private wildlife safari, avoiding the crowds, in intimate contact with nature and with a wandering encyclopedia as a guide. Not to be missed!
