FAQ

Can my kids join your tours too?

Our tours are designed to cater for everyone, not just adults! If you're joining one of our award-winning wine tours, please note that the minimum drinking age in Australia is 18 years old.

However, all of our vehicles are equipped with adult seatbelts; if you require child restraints or booster seats, please contact us and we'll be happy to arrange it for you. NSW law requires all children under 7 years of age be equipped with a capsule, car seat or booster. It is not possible to travel with an infant or child of any age on your lap if child restraint anchor points are fitted to the vehicle.

What are your pick-up locations?

We offer complimentary pick-up and drop-off from almost all central locations in Sydney city, and from most hotels within the Sydney CBD area. This includes Kings Cross, Potts Point, Darling Harbour, The Rocks (Circular Quay), Central Station and more. We can also pick-up anywhere along the Pacific Highway heading north from the city to Berowra, and requested points of departure by arrangement.

When will you pick me up and drop me off?

We pick up in Sydney city between 7am and 7.45am, depending on the location of your hotel. Exact times will be notified upon booking confirmation. Please allow at least a 10 minute margin for traffic conditions. Drop-off is about 6.00 to 6.30pm.

What do your shared small group tours include?

Pick-up / drop-off from Sydney Hotel, fully guided wildlife tour with naturalist guide, entry to all National Parks and private farms. Fully equipped luxury 4WD with field guides, binoculars & spotlights.

 Which days do tours operate?

Our Southern Highlands (wildlife tours) run four days per week (Saturday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday). Please note all tours are subject to availability and minimum number requirements; we recommend that you book well in advance to secure your place! We do not operate on Christmas Day (25 December) or New Year's Day (1 January). 

Do you have a cancellation policy?

Yes. Our daily share-tours may be changed or cancelled up to 24 hours before your scheduled pick-up. Less than 24 hours notice incurs a full charge on the credit card provided. Accommodation packages may be changed or cancelled up to 48 hours before your scheduled pick-up. Less than 48 hours notice incurs a full charge on the credit card provided. Please see our Terms & Conditions page for more details. Private charter tours may be changed or cancelled up to 7 days before your scheduled pick-up. Less than 7 days notice incurs a full charge on the credit card provided.

Are we supposed to tip the guide?

Tipping is not compulsory in Australia. However, it is a great reward for outstanding service. If you've had a great day, then rewarding your guide with a tip is really appreciated! We'd love for you to pass on any feedback you have to us in the office as well, and, more importantly, don't forget to tell your friends, family and fellow travellers what a great time you had!

Are your tours accessible in a wheelchair?

As storage space on our buses is limited, we do require that you give us advance warning if you or a fellow passenger will be travelling with a folding wheelchair, so that we can make the appropriate arrangements. There is no extra storage room on the bus so this may only be possible if the tour is not fully sold out. Any passengers travelling with a fold up wheel chair must be accompanied by someone who is capable of folding and lifting the chair.

Will I be able to travel with luggage?

We are unable to carry luggage larger than overnight bags on our tours, due to storage space limitations on board. If you will be travelling with luggage, please contact us so that we can arrange a trailer for you.

Which meals do your wildlife tours include?

This depends on when you're travelling. From the beginning of April to the end of September, our wildlife tours depart earlier in the day, which means that lunch is included in the tour. If you're travelling from October to March, you'll be receiving a light afternoon tea instead. A hearty dinner is included year-round at the Surveyor General Inn, Australia's oldest continuously licensed inn.

When does your Wildlife tour depart?

Departure times for our wildlife tours vary monthly, to ensure we have the best chance of spotting the local wildlife. Their patterns change depending on the time of year, weather patterns and the sunset, and we work around this to bring you the best possible Wildlife in the Wild tour.
