Great experience Loved every bit of the tour & our bus driver Paul very was informative & Tanya was also great. We booked a meet & greet cast member & we where very lucky to have Dan Ewing Heath an X river boy. He was awesome so happy to answer questions & he had a great sense of humour. Such a friendly person & was very informative too. We would highly recommend doing this tour if you are a home & away fan. Thanks for such an awesome day Fernanda

Fantastic trip, no filming that day so was joined on the bus by ‘Colby Thorne’ was happy to answer any questions and took time to chat individually with everyone as well as posing for photos, made you feel special, the bay itself is amazing and got to try out John Palmers Polaris amazing trip loads of info and insights into the show, even saw the houses.

Was really well organised, and the guide if not mistaken ‘Jules’, explained everything very clear and ensured the safety of the whole group the whole time. It was the first time going snorkelling and loved every second of it. Highly recommend

Jules gave us a tour and it was amazing! She took our photos with a go-pro and recorded videos of us snorkelling and the fish we saw and share it with us. Really educational and fun at the same time. I recommend to everyone!

Loved our trip and ability to see so much on the water! Wish we would have had another day in Sydney.
