Great tour!! Our driver and guide, Leonie, was fantastic! She was very knowledgable and enthusiastic and her commentary made the difference between a good trip and a fabulous one. Excellent tunes on board as well!

A truly beautiful journey along this coastal road. The scenery is outstanding. Watching true Aussie Surfers ride the waves. Do this trip on a weekday when the kids are at school, the roads are so quiet.
