Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    What can I say but wow! What an amazing experience. Glenn and Montana were exceptional hosts and we were beyond mesmerised by the underwater spectacle. We had wild dolphins and leopard sharks darting about beneath us and turtles swimming amongst the group, socially coming around to say hello. The waters were warm and calm and as the sun rose the clarity became unbelievable. It was like something out of a movie. There was an abundance of wildlife barely inches from us and we were allowed to explore and enjoy it for as long as we could last.

    Wild Byron were extremely accommodating, providing floatation devices for weaker swimmers and taking us all through safety precautions before we departed. They were truly a delight and we can’t wait to see them again.

    This tour was amazing. Interesting facts, great guides and awesome kayaking. The guides were so helpful and made it all feel like a breeze! Unfortunately we didn’t get to see any dolphins but was offered another trip again. Great time and great fun. Thank you

    Our family absolutely loved the surfing lessons here at Byron bay. We had such a friendly instructor called Guy, who taught us all the tricks and tips especially for us beginners. It was such a friendly and fun community and enjoyed every bit. We went through all the safety tips then set out into the water. It was super safe and definitely recommend.

    I surfed 5 days with Kool Katz surf school. I really improved my surf skills when Phil was teaching me and it was so much fun! Terry is great and very experienced. You get good worth of your money.

    We did a surf lesson with Gaz and Sam and had the best time. They made sure we learnt the correct techniques, taught us surf etiquette, surf safety and got us out there helping us catch every wave. They have a great sense of humor and made the whole lesson so much fun. Highly recommend them if this is something you’ve been thinking of doing whilst in Byron.

    Both instructors were really helpful and supportive. The lesson was really fun and perfect for beginners. It felt like the staff was invested in your progress and constantly cheering you on. It was easy to learn in this environment. 10/10 recommend.

    Fantastic tour, guides were professional and friendly and made sure everyone was safe at all times. We only saw dolphins in the distance but were lucky enough to see many whales pretty up close! Great value for money, would definitely recommend.

    Had a great time on the tour. There were only 3 tourists and the tour guide so it was easy getting to know everyone. The tour guide is very friendly and down to earth. The hike is fun but can be challenging is some places. There is a lot of rock scrambling. This is easy to handle but may take a miss for people with low fitness or mobility issues. The waterfall was incredible and the highlight of the tour and my time in Australia. The pool underneath is lovely to swim in. The town is also cute and the barbecue was nice. Would recommend.

    My husband gave me a ride in a balloon for our anniversary last week. Our ride started at the Channon Showgrounds and we landed on a farm in Eltham. The views were spectacular. Our pilot was extremely obliging and the support crew were all passionate about the region!!! Highly recommended!!!
