Sirina_L, Mar 2024
Greg communicated well from early on, he asked for my children’s ages to see if car seats were needed and took notes of food allergies. He also accommodated our request to make some changes to the itinerary last minute. The guided hiking tour was great, he made sure everyone was on track and took breaks as needed. The picnic lunch we had in the park was lovely. My son forgot his phone on Greg’s car at the end of the tour and he went out of his way to bring that back even though he was also looking for his backpack left behind. We appreciated having Greg as our guide and would definitely recommend him for others.

Sirina thank you for the comments. Pics on the way. Many regards, Greg
A wonderful tour with Greg!
Seydou_Q, Mar 2024
We had a great time on our tour hiking with our very informative guide, Greg. We were treated to great views with a bit of wind and managed to see all the park had to offer. I can't recommend this tour enough and if your're asked to adventure a bit, give it a shot! You never know what you'll stumble on with Greg!
Response from Host, Mar 2024
Thanks Seydou, indeed a very windy day and some great poses! Best' Greg
a beautiful day centered around Royal National Park and then Manly Island.
Thomas_W, Jan 2024
The magnificent beauty of the coast line at Royal National Park. Greg of Sydney Nimble Tours was a great host and adapted the tour to meet our requests along with his additional suggestions.

Hiking in the Royal National Park was an unforgettable experience. Lovely view of the ocean from the coastal track. The guide Greg was very pleasant and had so much useful information to offer. I would recommend this company, Sydney Nimble, to anyone looking to explore around Sydney.
Great time at Royal National Park!
Aaron_L, Jun 2023

We Would Do It Again in a Heartbeat!
David_W, Nov 2022
Greg is a fantastic guide. Everything went so smoothly. From the hotel pick-up to providing us various option on our days adventure through lunch and other stops and back to our hotel. Greg made the entire tour fun and exciting and the views are breathtaking! This was a great tour and highly record it.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thanks David, much fun having a couple on board with a great sense of humour. I am also pleased to advise that Australia has its own national association administering the rapidly growing sophisticated sport of cornholing, (Australian Cornhole Association)! Many regards, Greg
Rejuvenating and Wonderful Trip
Kalyan_S, Oct 2022
I wish there were 6 stars. Greg is very professional, sincere and committed. He made sure we had a great experience, be it the walk on Wedding Cake trail with panoramic views of the Pacific , be it the blowholes at Kiama, it was my first time and i loved it. The walk on the bridge near Coal cliff / Bald Hill almost got me excited to try Para Ponting. The sights were simply awesome. We had lunch by the beach and it was a wonderful afternoon. I will definitely come back for another trip.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you Kalyan, it was a delight to have you and your dad on board. Many regards, Greg
Nature up close and personal along a gorgeous coastal trail
Nancy_H, Jun 2022
I knew we were in for an excellent experience when Greg took the time to help me find gluten free options for my celiac son while in Sydney weeks before we even arrived. The excursion was nothing short of incredible. Greg knows RNP well and was able to share so much knowledge about the flora and fauna. He was attentive to safety (we had 8yo twins with us) while still providing opportunities to experience incredible views (I even spotted a migrating humpback from Marley Head!). He allowed the twins time to enjoy the dunes on Marley Beach. When my son was sure he would never make it all the way back to the car, Greg was so patient and supportive. And. AND. *We saw a wild echidna.* As a zoologist, this was an indescribable treat for me. It was lucky, but Greg knew how rare it was an allowed us plenty of time to observe it and take photos. We did Symbio in the afternoon and had fun getting up close with the kangaroos and wallabies. All in all, this day was simply incredible. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore the wildlife, plants, and geology of RNP while hiking a beautiful coastal trail.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Nancy a lot of the days out are rewarding for me and this was one of them. It was a joy to see two children having fun on the dunes at Marley Beach. I appreciate the tips on websites for identifying plants and hope the rest of your trip progresses well. Warm regards, Greg
The best tour you can book in Australia!!
Karin_Z, Dec 2021
Greg was an amazing tour guide and we had the BEST time! The tour is tailored to your needs and wants, so for us we did the longer hike to Eagle Rock and swam under a waterfall in the middle of the hike, enjoyed the scenery at Garie Beach and Bald Hill Lookout (and got insider knowledge about the e-boards at Manly Beach), and got some spectacular views at Sea Cliff Bridge after a short hike. The waterfall at at Wattamolla Beach was a ton of fun. Cannot recommend this tour enough!!
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Karin thank you for the wonderful comments. Warm regards, Greg

BOOK THIS TOUR IMMEDIATELY! YOU WON'T REGRET IT! Greg chauffeured us around the Sydney area for the PERFECT way to end our Sydney trip! As if his generous hospitality throughout our journey wasn't enough, he also offered to take professional photos of us throughout the day, sending the ones that turned-out best to us via email. We are so thankful to Greg for our time together! We arrived at Royal National Park, and after a few quick stops for photos, we set-off for our trek to Wedding Cake Rock. Greg came prepared when we weren't--he offered granola bars, sunscreen, bug spray, hats, extra shirts, & cold water for the journey. This was especially appreciated as we were not nearly prepared enough for the heat. We began our journey and immediately recognized Greg's passion for sharing in this type of experience with his guests when he mentioned that there were what appeared to be caves in an area slightly off the path from the beginning of our hike that he hadn't ever checked-out. We jumped at the opportunity to see more, and it was well worth the extra time! Seeing the waves crash off the coast, the sandstone imprints and views were spectacular, and we hadn't really even begun our journey. As a heavier set guy, Greg was patient with us if we needed breaks and kept us informed of how far we had to go yet until we reached our destination. After the hike and chugging ice cold Gatorade that Greg also provided, we had a short trip to Wattamolla Beach where we saw wild lizards sunbathing and people enjoying a swim in the lagoon as we ate a delicious lunch of meatball & rocket sandwiches and rocket salad, again provided by Greg. He also took care of the set-up and clean-up, allowing us to walk down by the lagoon for some photos. Following lunch we drove more, enjoying the sights of the local flora. We drove by sights of Sea Cliff Bridge before heading to Symbio Wildlife Park where we fed Kangaroos, saw Koalas (including a baby!), dingos, echidnas, emus, and so much more! We enjoyed our time at the park tremendously! Following Symbio we continued our trek through the park to the Bald Hill Lookout & Hang Gliding Spot for another quick photo op before finishing our day at Garie Beach, admiring the sunset and walking along the low tide pools in the rocks. This experience is well worth the price and Greg was so patient, kind, and informative. We especially enjoyed this tour because of how it was catered to us personally & we were not in larger group.
