    Fantastic personalised tour of the dunes, beach, and sand-boarding
    We were a group of 7, including 5 overseas visitors from the US. The tour was fantastic and felt very personalised as there were no other tour groups around the places we were shown, and the dunes therefore looked pristine and undisturbed. Bruce was a great guide who mixed his extensive knowledge of the Worimi conservation area and its history with light-hearted humor and kept us entertained throughout. The tour consisted of driving into and across the dunes, stopping by for sand boarding, and concluding with a drive up and down the beach. We learned a lot and had a great time, especially the overseas visitors as sand dunes of this scale are a rare sight. Thanks again Bruce!

    Fun afternoon with our teens!
    Thanks Bruce for such a fun afternoon! We and our kids (12 & 14yo) both loved the 4wd to the beach with rocks to climb, the drive over the dunes & the sand boarding… finishing the day with a lovely sunset over the dunes by the beach. Thank you for sharing your knowledge of the Worimi land and of the military history of the area. We highly recommend this tour!

    Great fun!
    Great fun, well organised and an absolute hoot! Only downside is that the bikes don't have rollbars - I would have preferred it.

    An awesome afternoon out - do this tour !!!
    Really fun afternoon on a bush track and then playing around on Stockton Beach. What an amazing place, and so cool to be on and in amongst it. Bruce is knowledgeable and friendly, and explains 4WD very clearly and calmly. Super fun day out, and totally relaxing as a 4WD tag-along vehicle knowing there’s a true expert on hand to guide us. Highly recommend this tour !!!

    First timer 4WD experience
    I was so excited to take my Ranger out on the beach and dunes, however very apprehensive having not done any 4WD before. I almost chickened out at the top of the 1st dune, belt off and all ready to swap drivers! But Bruce was encouraging and talked me through it calmly, I cannot even explain the adrenaline rush once I'd completed my first run down. Hands down the highlight of our holiday! Fantastic experience and will definitely be back again!! Thank Bruce :)

    A thrilling experience, must try!!
    A memorable experience, the tour involved equal amounts of thrill and breath taking views. An interesting part of the tour involved learning about the history and geography of the area shared by Bruce. In times of Covid19 infection control is big part, he aptly followed the guidelines and was constantly making sure everybody followed the same. Thank you for the fun time Bruce! I would highly recommend the tour to everyone looking for a fun filled experience!

    Simply Brilliant!!
    We joined Bruce on his tag along tour getting some great local knowledge and access to the sand dunes at Stockton beach which was simply brilliant. New to 4WDing or experienced, would highly recommend getting this local knowledge. We were introduced to spots we’ve not been to even after having been to Nelson Bay many times before, finishing up with some sand dune driving lessons. Finally burning any energy we had left sand boarding down the same dune we had just driven down. Thanks Bruce for your attention and passion.

    Bucket list item ticked off.
    Amazing afternoon with Bruce and Nicole. Very well run operation with very experienced instructors. My partner has always wanted to drive on the beach and dunes (without risk of getting bogged) and today he got to do just that. Loved the drop ins and that the drivers got to continue to drive down the drop again and again while family/friends got to take videos and photos. Kids loved it especially the sandboarding. We learnt a lot and had a blast. Highly recommended will definitely go again when in town.

    A fun experience in the dunes
    We had a great 3.5hr experience with Bruce. Learning about how to drive a 4x4 in the sand, sand boarding, and going all over the sand dunes. The 5 of us in the car with Bruce would definitely recommend this to anyone!

We have just had an absolute blast on a 4WD Tag-Along Tour in Port Stephens with Bruce and Nicole. Before hitting the dunes, we had an opportunity to look at Little Rocky and Big Rocky, which has some really beautiful rock pools as well as a look at Samurai Beach. The Dunes were definitely a highlight. Bruce was really knowledgeable for those with little 4WD experience, but the Dunes were still steep enough to offer a thrill to experienced drivers. Surfing down the sand dunes was definitely a highlight for our two little ones (2 and 4 years old). Would highly recommend anyone coming near Port Stephens to take this tour! Definitely an experience we will cherish.

We had a very informative 3 1/2 hour tour with Bruce. Bruce was very knowledgeable in regard to the local area including Flora and Fauna. His 4 x4 knowledge was very helpful. We experienced the magnificent beach and Sand Dunes of Stockton Beach and got to test our Ranger on some tough and steep Sand Dunes. A very good day was had and it was very enjoyable

We had a great time sightseeing out to Big and Little Rock islands, driving along samurai beach then into the sand dunes. Good fun, plenty of laughs and some hairy times going up and down some almost vertical dunes. Finished off the arvo with everyone sand boarding the dunes as the sun set. Bruce was a great guide and expert with advice for the 4xwheel driving. Definitely do this tour again !!!

Bruce talks you through every step of the way and is highly informed while still keeping the tour relaxed and fun.
This tour is definitely one of the must do things in Port Stephens.

We did the tag along tour with Bruce and Nicole and absolutely loved it! The pace of the tour is relaxing and for first timers like us, it was an ideal way to spend a Saturday afternoon. It’s a well priced tour with amazing value for money. The tour itself has something for everyone and amazing photo opportunities. We enjoyed learning about the history of the land and Bruce’s terrible dad jokes. Both Bruce & Nicole were super friendly and only to eager to help us feel comfortable driving our 4WD in that environment for the first time. We also really enjoyed the sandboarding at the end. Highly recommend to all- 5 stars all the way! Thanks for a wonderful day!

This was the best 4wd tour you could hope for. Bruce was a great guide and he's knowledge of the local area is second to none. Took us to some spectacular places with incredible views. Some of the driving on the sand dunes was frightening as he got us doing things we never thought possible. I am a novice at 4 wheel driving and Bruce explained What we were about to do, how to do it and why. We learnt so much on the day. I could not recommend the trip highly enough and will definitely be joining Bruce on other adventures

My husband, 5 year old, 2 year old and myslef had the best afternoon 11th september on the tag-along tour. Bruce was so welcoming and very helpful with guiding us through driving on the dunes and getting us more confident driving on sand. Would recommend for anyone to do this whilst in the area and to see such amazing scenery. My kids loved the 4wd and sandboarding. Made some very special family memories. Thanks Bruce for such an amazing day.

Bruce was a brilliant host and guide. Full of knowledge, guidance and personality. We had a fantastic time and in my husband’s words (whose birthday present it was) only Bruce could make driving off a cliff seem easy! Plus, we got to watch a bomb detonation in the dunes, a first for Bruce as well as us! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

We were not able to drive as the vehicle was too low for the dunes, so the 4 of us were passengers in Bruce's car. It was heaps of fun and Bruce was very knowledgeable . The sunset views at the end were beautiful. It would have been a great experience be able to drive your own vehicle
