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.

Tom was an amazing guide. He was so friendly and took us to a beautiful waterfall and gave us some great information and history of Byron bay. And he also cooked us a lovely BBQ lunch! Would 100% recommend

The walk was excellent. The whole family enjoyed swimming in the falls. My 10 year old complained on the way back up - but I put it down to charachter building! we also got to enjoy the Bangalow markets

Excellent tour led by Tom! The rainforest trek was such an adventure and you will be rewarded with one of the most beautiful waterfalls at the end.

We had a rainy day but it still was an awesome experience.
