Our tour guide Tom was so so lovely. Very knowledgeable and knew alot of byron bay and it’s history. He took us to all the spots and they were beautiful, unfortunately the weather was not the best that day but it was all worth it. The crystal castle was amazing and definitely worth a visit. Lunch was provided with a BBQ made by Tom just burgers and chips, simple and easy, you can’t complain! Anyway we just want to say thanks to Tom as he was genuinely such a good person and tour guide.

2 fat blokes were awesome . If you get a chance to choose guides you should choose Bill. His knowledge of the area and his quirky anecdotes made our day. They will take you to the path less travelled and show you a great variety of vineyards. My wife and I Are in our 40s and we thoroughly enjoyed the day. I am not a wine drinker but are now converted . Thanks Bill and the team.

Two fat blokes were our activity. Their tour guide of Julz was amazing. Her wit, knowledge and overall professionalism are to be commended. I'd recommend their company to anyone.
