Highly recommended tour to see some of the most beautiful parts of Byron Bay surroundings. Convenient pick up and drop off from our place and interesting commentary about the places we visited.
A fabulous day out !

We had a fabulous day with Harry. He is super friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was relaxed with enough time spent at each location to really soak up the scenery . Highly recommended.
Highly unreliable. Avoid if possible.

They cancelled on us at the last moment.... that too when I called for an update. They didn't even bother to inform me. Highly unreliable people. Avoid if possible.

Hey Ahsan, I am sorry you had a bad experience with us, and its a shame we couldn't get you on a tour this time. Unfortunately due to the current situation, on some occasions we are unable to meet minimum numbers in order for the tour to operate. I had a look through our text history and can see that I messaged you over 5 times and called you twice to inform you of the cancellation days prior to the date of the tour.. Hopefully we can get you on a tour next time you're in byron!
Lovely Day 😁😁😁

We went on the Behind the Bay Tour on 2nd Jan 2021. We meet Harry when he picked us at our meeting point at Sulfolk Park. We were taken to 3 iconic Byron Bay places -Killen Falls, Lake Ainsworth and Three Sisters Walk at Broken Head. Harry was a fabulous host and was really sweet. He was very flexible and we had such a wonderful time all together. Thank you Harry for a wonderful time.
The tour was more than I expected!

What a great deal! This tour definitely exceeded my expectations. Harry was so accommodating and we did not feel rushed at all. He made sure we enjoyed our time. This was my first time doing a tour on my own but luckily I met a wonderful group plus of course Harry looked after us. He even made sure we could start swimming at Lake Ainsworth while he waited for our lunch orders. It was so refreshing swimming under Killen falls! Make sure you take some rock shoes with you so you could enjoy it even more. I would definitely go back to Lake Ainsworth again as the water was magical. To top it off the views from Broken Head Nature Reserve was spectacular. Definitely best value for money! Thanks for a wonderful tour Harry. Would highly recommend to my friends and family or anyone thinking of visiting Byron. Wouldn’t mind doing this tour again when I come back !
