Just did the tour with Bruce on Saturday. My wife and I and two children had an absolute blast! Bruce is excellent. Great sense of humour, knowledgeable and puts all at ease no matter your level of 4WD experience. The sand boarding was so much fun and the kids are still talking about it. It was good to finally use our Wildtrak for something other than getting the groceries. Thanks so much Bruce, it’s an activity we will all never forget👍

Easily a 5 star tour.. except for a few little things (read the full review for why I gave it 2). What did we like: The 4wd driving on the sand dunes at Stockton was great. Plenty of thrills, and suitable for all ages. Our 2 year old kept screaming out FUN! FUN! Again, again!. The sandboarding was amazing fun. Safe and simple. Once again suitable for all ages. Our 4 year old happily took herself down the dunes. These parts of the tour will be held in our fond memories for many years. We loved it. Now what didn't we like, and why have I given this 2 stars: They take you to nudist beach as part of the tour. There was no pre-warning on the website, or when we paid, nor as we were driving in. If we knew in advance we would not have gone. We had a car load of children. We didn't want them, nor did we want to see 2 naked men and 1 naked lady on the beach. Read some of the reviews about Samurai beach. This is certainly not a family friendly tour. The first we knew about it was when Bruce calls out excitedly on the radio that he can see some white pointers up ahead (use your imagination on that one). We shared some photos with friends, and a few said they would do the tour. However after pointing out that they take you to a nudist beach, they quickly changed their minds. We also didn't appreciate some of the jokes made. Some weren't family friendly, and others were a bit hurtful. There were several comments made over the radio about Bruce and his previous job. A couple of times he said that, no he wasn't a gigolo, and he use to pleasure women... (something along those lines). They knew we had a car load of kids. Not suitable, thank you. On multiple occasions there were jokes made about the size of our family. Yes, we have chosen to have 5 children, and are so so proud of them. It is hurtful when repeated comments are made about: "Don't you have a tv", or You need to get a man shed etc... In saying that, there was not malicious intent from the tour guides, but a little discretion about when to make jokes about gigolos or large families would have been nice. As I said at the start. The last part of the tour is definitely 5 stars, it was the taking us to a nudist beach (without any pre-warning) and inappropriate jokes that brought the tour down for us.

Thankyou for your comments, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the sand dunes and your children enjoyed the sandboarding. I'm sorry if you miss heard about Samurai beach, We do make a point of letting everyone know we are going to samurai beach and if anyone has and issues to let us know privately and we can change the itinerary. When we arrived at Samurai i said on the radio please don't let your children swim as this is a white pointer nursery for sharks. When i noticed the naked people on the beach i suggested you take your children into the small dunes away from the people, these people usually stay at either end of the beach. It's very rare that there is naked people on the beach. The beach is a clothing optional, 95% of beach users are surfers, fisherman and families. We were at least 150 meters away from the older couple walking on the waters edge. I did not say i pleasure women, i made women happy. I was a jeweler in my previous job. I'm sorry if some of my jokes were hurtful to you and your family that was not my intention. I have taken your comments on board and will be more discrete. Thankyou Bruce

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 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!
