Amazing Tour and Mike is an Awesome Tour Guide.
Elizabeth_B, Nov 2023
Bula vinaka, Kia ora, we really enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it. Mike is an awesome tour guide, has so much knowledge of all the areas, and is so easy to chat with. We were looking forward to taking a few pix of Palm Beach /Summer Bay (yes Home & Away fans😊) and it was such a cool surprise that they were filming a couple of scenes when we got there. Was super exciting to get a photo with John Palmer (Shane Withington) then when leaving Mike spotted Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) and we got a pic taken with him too. Made our day 😊. Vinaka vakalevu (thankyou very much) Mike for the amazing tour.

Long day
Theodore_V, Jan 2023
Long ride as expected, guide had no interest or knowledge about National Park or Wildlife. Beaches were beautiful indeed. Lunch was decent. An informed guide could have made this a good tour.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
That is good to hear that you enjoyed the wonderful beaches of the Northern Beaches, and the lunch venue. Unfortunately I was not available to be your guide on that day. It was a real shame that your guide did not provide an informative commentary that met your expectations. I do hope that you will get to visit Sydney again. Kind Regards, Mike

Mike was a great guide. I think we saw all the northern beaches. He was very knowledgeable about Ku-ring-gai National Park and the beach area. The ferry back from Manly Beach was just a great add-on.
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Thank you very much for the lovely review!, I’m very happy that you had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful Northern Beaches! Mike

I think you should drop the national park option off and spend more time on the beaches. The aboriginal paintings are not that exciting.
We took this tour on our honeymoon...
