“Winter Canyoning Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Just finished up a day trip canyoning with BMAC and it was a fantastic experience. There were two of us and we had zero abseiling experience but after a demonstration and a few practice runs we were feeling much more comfortable and ready to take on the day. Marty was our guide and he did a tremendous job - rappelling down a 23 meter drop sounds like it would be scary for a first timer - but I always felt safe and trusted Marty's experience/expertise. Canyoning is an incredible way to see the Blue Mountains and you get to explore areas you wouldn't be able to walk to without abseiling in. Marty also proved to be a great guide to the local plants & wildlife explaining what we were seeing as we went along. BMAC provided all of the equipment necessary and even lent us warm fleeces and waterproof pants/jackets and waterproof bags to keep extra clothes/valuables dry. All in all it was a great experience - will definitely recommend!

Thanks for your review.
Winter canyoning is a surprisingly beautiful and rewarding experience. We're glad you appreciated the little extras that we've invested in - we've worked to make sure that we've got everything you need for a great day out, including excellent staff like Marty (one of the best in the Blue Mountains for sure!)
We sincerely hope you enjoy the rest of your time in Australia.

“Great despite bad weather”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

I totally thought our day of climbing would be called off as it was 5 degrees and raining. But Marty was all over it and said we'd be good to go. He took us to the Aunty Jack area near Cox's road and it was dry and protected. He set up safe and challenging climbs for people of all different abilities and was a great guide all day. We really enjoyed it and I would definitely use BMAC again and recommend it to others.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, it is really appreciated.
We work hard to employ highly experienced guides who have excellent knowledge of the local area. This means that when it is windy we can find a place to go that is out of the wind, and when it is cold we try and find a place in the sun (if there is any sun!) or a place in the shade when it is hot.
Marty is one of our most experienced and well regarded guides and we're glad that you had a good day out.

“Best Abseiling juggler canyon. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Just did abseiling and hiking with them. Idk about other companies but when I got there, it was freezing cold. I didn't expect that. So they lent me clothes from top to toe without any extra charges. Really nice people.
The abseils were amazing and fun.
The hikes were cool.
The views was sweet.
What more do I need to say. Book now!

It was cold on Saturday wasn't it! We certainly would have rescheduled if there was a safety concern, but Juggler Canyon is one where you work up a bit of body heat and get down out of the wind in the canyon gorge. And we would much rather you have a great adventure day out than have to cancel and leave you with nothing to do!
Our adventures have always been "all inclusive", but we've been working hard to have the little extras on hand to go the extra mile and we're glad you appreciated that.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write your review.

“Awesome abseiling experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

I called BMA in the morning asking if we could do an introductory abseiling course in the afternoon and they got it organised quick-smart. Jimmy was a brilliant guy, with heaps of patience along with his happy & friendly nature. He made us all feel safe and his encouragement meant that our 11yo who is super scared of heights went down the 15m drop a couple of times. The 30m drop was awesome, because it's a high cliff face and you drop down to a ledge, so as you go over you are 100s of metres up, not just 30m. Loved it!!

Thanks for your review - Jimmy has been away overseas adventuring for a few years and we are glad to have him back amongst us again!
The location you went to on the day is called "Narrow Neck" and it has some spectacularly big cliffs surrounding it - even the 15m abseil can be quite intimidating so we're glad your 11yo mustered the courage to tackle that one.
We're glad we could help you out with a last minute adventure and hope you had an excellent time exploring the rest of the Blue Mountains too!
