Chapo was amazing from start to finish the day of the tour! This was our first time in Sydney & last day of our trip & I couldn’t of wished for a better way to spend it! It was great to get out of the city and see a different side to Australia, Chapo took us to a great spot for breakfast & lunch and told us some great stories on the car journey and up in the mountains, he is also great with the camera. The day was a lot of fun & we learned so much from Chapo and made great friends on the trip. You just can’t visit Sydney without doing this, Chapo really is the best tour guide we’ve had & we can’t thank him enough we had the best day!!
