tour offering for 4wd wildlife day/eve day trip anyone been?

Viator and a few others are offering a "new" day tour from Sydney which says it takes you in a SuV out to the countryside to see the usual native animals in the wild as opposed to wildlife park or zoo. It has an evening lamplit search for the critters and sounds the sort of thing im after. Has anyone been on this tour to see how it compares with the more usual blue mountains, caves and wildlife park offerings?

Will be in sydney for the NYE shindig, and will have a couple of days post fireworks and was toying with this as something to do.

Also as it seems to be an offering by a number of operators, does anyone know who the tour is actually run by?

Cant wait to be back in Sydney from what will be a cold and wet UK,

Appreciate any info

Viator are a resale agency, so I'm wondering who the local operator maybe.

The only clue it provides is that the tour is in the Southern Highlands from what I can tell.

Greater Sydney...

I would not book through Viator. It is usually simple enough to find the identity of tour provider with the help of Google, and it would appear this one fits the bill as mentioned by the above posters.

Thank you for that, i could only find what looked like more resellers to me . Are boutique tours actual tour givers for want of a better phrase they certainly look as though they are, and that certainly looks like the same tour. Thats great, id much rather talk to the real deal, than needlessly give a corporation a cut

So anyone been on the boutique tour of the southern highlands ? Was it any good?

Thanks everyone, they are the same folks even if the tour isnt the same, i like the fact owners read and reply to posts, and Boutique tours seem to be on the ball, have just emailed them to book, so fingers crossed they have places after all this research.

Thanks for all your help
