We (21 years old couple) have had a wonderful experience with Mike, our guide. It was a day filled with beautiful lookouts and interesting anacdotes. We were also lucky to see some wild kangaroo and a huge lizzard. The guide was very knowledgeable and flexible and tried to fulfill all of our requests. We fully recommend this trip to anyone whose in for views and beaches (highlight is palm beach of course).

Well worth the trip, fab day out!

Northern Beaches Tour. Guide was very knowledgable about everything we saw! Had great weather for it which made it that much better. Everything we saw was amazing, such lovely beaches. Most certainly Mike our guide made this trip. He was very nice and very accommodating to us. Felt like he was our friend guiding us around.

Great tour, Mike was an outstanding guide, knowledgeable in plants and nature, as well as aboriginal history and art. It was just two of us, but he did not spare any effort to show us everything, from nature and art to beaches and neighbourhoods. Well worth our time.

Great trip to see the beaches and interesting sites. Guide was very knowledgeable and fun. GOOD way to spend a sunny day.

Our guide Matt was amazing! Overall a great experience.
