Just returned from a truly brilliant experience. Abseiling and Canyoning at Empress Falls in the Blue Mountains. Our guide Stewart was so good. He delivered a fabulous experience for my wife and I. Safety was paramount and his instruction was easy to follow. The scenery was spectacular. The experience is just so good we are already planning our next adventure... More

Thanks Anthony - that's really lovely feedback to get and I'll be sure to pass it on to Stew. He's a solid guide and you're welcome to request him by name if you bring back the family for another adventure (I'm sure Stew has already recommended a good follow up experience).

I had a pleasure of spending a day rock climbing and canyoning alone with a guide, Tim, as the group I was joining postponed their trip. I felt Tim took the time to really listen to my concerns and expectations for the day, which made me feel super safe and well taken care of! I was initially booked in for... More

Wowsers! What a review. It sounds like you had an exceptional day and were very fortunate to land on a private experience! Tim is widely recognised as one of the most knowledgeable guides in the community, although he would of course deny any such reputation. But regardless, we're glad to hear that not only did you have a fun day... More

Had an amazing day with my girlfriend and guide Stewart doing the Empress Falls canyoning and waterfall abseil! Started the day with a course in abseiling which was very helpful in preparing us for the actual abseil during the canyon. Stew was a very helpful and knowledgeable guide, teaching us the correct techniques and safety procedures to get us comfortable... More

Thanks for the review Jack. We're glad that you found the morning session of abseiling meant that you had enough experience to be able to fully appreciate the waterfall abseil in the afternoon - it can be quite intimidating and we think it's much better when you have your eyes open. I'll pass your feedback on to Stew, and if... More

My partner and I did the Grand Canyon abseiling/canyoning tour two days ago - we were blown away not only by the beauty of the canyon but by the team at Blue Mountains Adventure Company.

Went abseiling and canyoning at the Empress Falls with BMAC. Tim and Big Dog Cal were very professional and made the experience relaxed, enjoyable and safe. Fantastic day to do with a partner or friends and the abseiling down the waterfall is AMAZING!! Can't wait to come back and pick a different adventure.

BMAC have cool guides that will go out of their way to make you discover the natural wonders of the region in a different, sporty manner. We planned to let them guide us for one day but ended up staying with them for three full days. Each day was a good experience and we felt safe under their guidance, experiencing... More

I was genuinely delighted to read your review. Thanks so much!

My husband and I did the beginner Boar's Head abseiling tour a few days ago with BMAC. The trip and views were AMAZING! BMAC provided all of the gear (which was well maintained) and definitely practiced safety first. I never felt in danger or unmonitored -- very personal service from our guide. This was definitely an extreme adventure, and although... More

We had a great time canyoning through Jugglers Canyon. It was more challenging than expected and far exceeded our expectations. Our guide Ryan was sensational - very encouraging and ensured we all made it through. His passion of nature was evident and the knowledge he shared about the region was almost as entertaining as the canyoning.

Thanks Abdul. Ryan's a great guide that we wished could work for us more often, but he's in demand. And for good reasons: as you've outlined! We hope the challenging nature of the experience didn't lead to too many aches and pains the day after your adventure. But better to be sore than underwhelmed we think! More
