Next, check out the Pittwater waterways breathtaking coastal drive over to the famous Palm Beach, home to the rich and famous and Australia’s favourite soap opera, Home & Away, where you will take a tour around the area’s many mansions.

  • I had an unforgettable day with this tour. Went to the northern beaches, seeing all the good spots, had the chance to see dolphins even. Very local trip, with a guide who provide you good knowledge and information of the area and the history. Recommended 100%.

    Jesus Marquez
  • Had a great time with Mike on tour started off perfect collected at hotel on time. Headed off for first stop
    Great views and spots to stop over at.Mike really knows how to make the most if the day. Great value for Money. Definitely recommend doing this tour.

    James Pollock
  • We did two tours with Mike and enjoyed both of them immensely! We spent two full days exploring the Northern Beaches and later the Blue Mountains (with airport transfer at the end of the day). This is a much better option than booking through cruise ships. You’ll do more, be more comfortable, and enjoy the flexibility that touring with a small group offers (or as a private booking) — and at lower cost and greater value. We won’t hesitate to tour with Mike on our next trip!

    Janet Pearson
  • Absolutely amazing day exploring the Northern Beaches! Mike is a fantastic guy who is very knowledgeable and able to share history and stories about the local area. The tour itinerary covered all the key sights on the Northern Beaches, taking in some of the most spectacular and stunning scenery. Everything is included in the tour, even lunch at the Palm Beach Golf Club. This is a must do tour when visiting Sydney. Fantastic value for money and highly recommended!

    David Cherrie
  • This was one of the best tours I experienced in Sydney!!! My tour guide, Michael, went above and beyond to tailor the sites we saw to my interests. We were even able to see the filming of Home and Away!!! I would recommend this tour to my friends.
