Wonderful private tour.
John_A, Feb 2023
This tour was a first class, 5 star tour provided by our tour guide -- Greg. This was a private tour for just my wife and I and Greg did a wonderful job of making this day special for us. We were able to go and do things on this tour that you would not be able to do on a big bus tour. The driving through neighborhoods, the beaches visited, the short hikes and the National Park were all outstanding ---- and Greg even made lunch for us overlooking a beautiful beach and the spectacular ocean. This tour was more than we had expected it to be and we definitely recommend this tour and Greg to anyone who wants to spend a full day exploring the area around Sydney.

John thank you for the thoughtful comments. Much appreciated, Greg
Tour of Beautiful Northern Beaches
Karen_V, Jan 2023
Greg was a great guide! Plenty of stops to get out and visit the beautiful beaches. Very interesting. I would recommend not booking this excursion on a weekend as the beaches are busier then. Also pack a good pair of walking shoes for the hike up to the lighthouse.

Northern Beaches Tour
Gerald_K, Feb 2020
I would recommend this tour for all that visit Sydney and want to see the northern beaches and city. Greg was a great tour guide and was able to tailor the tour to fit what we wanted to see. We also liked the national park and views of the sights. Thanks Greg for the great day!

Gerald thank you for taking the time to share your review. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you back sometime for another tour!
Excellent way to see sights

Greg, met us early at our hotel and proceeded to show us numerous different beaches and small walks that we would have not known about. We covered a lot of sites and had a great time.
Response from Host, Dec 2019
Thank you for the feedback. We try to get the walks right so that the best part of the walk is covered in a reasonable time, allowing us to move onto as many other interesting places as possible. If your ever back in Sydney don't forget to ask for returning customer discount and we now have available a new complimentary designer (lol) T shirt! See you, Greg.
Best off the beat and path tour ever- Sydney Nimble Tours!
Angela C, Sept 2019
My husband and I were in Sydney for our 24th anniversary. We wanted to a tour that took us some of the places that were not so touristy and "off the beat and path." Greg provided an amazing, informative tour and took us to places we would have never heard of that were just beautiful! Since we already had spent time at the harbour he customized our tour with other amazing stops outside of Sydney and it was awesome to have the dialogue and history from a local perspective. Greg was a fun, informative guide and his tour was a highlight of our trip. We loved his fun, easy going manner and his flexibility. My husband and I highly reccommend his tours! We saw more of Sydney and the surrounding beaches in one day with him then we did all week! Truly Nimble!!! Thanks again Greg!
Response from Host, Sept 2019
Angela and Tom, thank you for the excellent review. It was a pleasure to show you around Sydney. For me the highlight of the day is the wonderful people that I have met on days out. Greg
Journée très agréable...

Journée très agréable avec Greg notre guide privé qui a été très disponible pour nous montrer le maximum de choses avec bienveillance. Le seul bémol est la barrière de la langue !
