Visit to the best Northern Beaches and a lovely ride
Tanumita D, 23-07-2022
This was such a fun-filled day with Mike. It was a rainy day and he had kept all the preparations ready for us including hot coffee and big umbrellas. We went to Ku-ring-gai National Park and picked up some beautiful views, even in the rains. Mike took us to most of the beaches and we took some lovely pictures. The best one was Avalon Beach. We went near the shore and suddenly the waves washed our feet and it was a fun moment for all of us. Mike is very friendly and we had a great day with him.
Great Northern Beaches escapade

An "off the beaten track" tour which starts only a half hour drive from the Sydney CBD. From the first stunning view of the Harbour waterways, through the wonderful National Park and then onto so many glorious insights into the Northern Beaches coastline. The highlights were many.
Our small group of five adults all had the same opinion, much better day experience than was possibly expected. One of the group was an ardent Home and Away fan and her day was even more memorable, captured in some great photos.
Well done to our host/guide Michael.
