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.

    Worth the money! Delicious beers, very chill vibes and just a feel of welcome when you enter the brewery. Jess was so cheerful, and a warm and friendly guide. She did an amazing job!

    We had a fabulous time (again) at the Cape Byron Distillery. Gorgeous views, great flights of gin and whiskey to taste, lovely staff. Grab some platter foods out of the fridge, order a cocktail before your tasting flights and sit for a bit. Koalas an extra bonus.

    Our trip to Tonga with Craig was worth every minute, he went above and beyond with all aspects to make it the most incredible journey. We were warmly welcomed and enjoyed the entire experience. Craig is most knowledgeable and passionate about whales, especially with regards to their wellbeing.
    This trip is something that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Thank you.

    Great experience for the family (children 5 & 8yrs). Jo was really friendly and helpful. The horses were beautiful and very calm. We enjoyed a private ride through the bushland. Enjoyed the birds and butterflies whilst we rode. Very fair prices and we all enjoyed helping get the horses ready and feeding them after.

    If there were 6 stars I would give it 6! Ricky was a fantastic and knowledgeable guide. Our family had never paddle boarded before and Ricky made it super easy and relaxed. Was such a great way to spend the morning, so peaceful and loads of wildlife, fish, ray’s and eagles. And the homemade treats were delicious. Highly recommend!

    A couple of years ago, I kicked off my gyrocopter journey with a trial instructional flight with Flygyro over Byron Bay. As I was admiring the scenic beauty from the sky, the instructor not only demonstrated the gyrocopter's capabilities but also allowed me to take the controls and experience the excitement of flying. It was then when I totally fell for gyrocopters, and Oli, the flight instructor, just made the whole experience even more awesome with his teaching style. Two years later I call myself a gyrocopter pilot, and all thanks to Oli and his dedicated training.

    I picked this school primarily for its strong safety culture, especially considering the not-so-great reputation gyrocopters have, particularly the handmade ones from the past. I believe that the shift to factory-built aircraft globally in the last decade has proven that they can be safe.

    In this flight school, you will find a combination of discipline, rigor, systematic training, and a serious approach. Instructors here have a way of encouraging you to push your limits and shape awareness of human factors, but always with safety as the top priority. That's the aspect I admire the most about this school. On top of all that, they make the learning experience enjoyable and leave you feeling proud of your achievements after every single flight.

    Combine a breathtaking location with a strong safety culture and a touch of enjoyment, and you've got the winning formula for a successful gyrocopter pilot.
