Great experience!! You have to speak English, otherwise it will be difficult with the instructions. We had Eddi as our instructor and he was awesome. The time on the beach was very short and you could try everything directly in the water. Great! We are beginners and have never surfed before, but that's exactly what the lessons are for. It was a lot of fun and we were able to quickly "ride" the first waves with Eddi's help. Highly recommended.

Our driver Martin, was fantastic. Quick witted and always ready with helpful info about the district we travelled through. Very informative and helpful to the passengers with information on where to find something to eat and drink at the best price.

Great way to get an overview of the city. We did it on the first day and got off to visit the Australia museum. The weather was great and the lines weren’t long even though it was a holiday weekend.

Really crazy experience! It was my first attempt and I had a lot of fun! Makes you want more, highly recommended! Yvi

Very complete visit with the 2 circuits. You really have to do both.
