My partner and I decided to go on the Step in Paradise tour for our short stay in Byron as it seemed to offer a bit of everything we wanted to do and see including waterfalls and Nimbin. Xavier was a great guide and really made it a lot of fun and very interactive! Not to mention the awesome reggae he plays in the bus for the trip! We had a small group which i really enjoyed because it allowed Xavier to be flexible and customize our day. Highly recommended for those that love a bit of an adventure!

My partner booked this trip through the Information centre .It was the highlight of our great week spent in Byron Bay.We are in our mid 60's .

Xavier , the tour guide/ driver made it so much fun.He took us to the beautiful waterfall pools to swim , lovely fresh lunch at Nimbin ( old butter factory) and candle warehouse.
The countryside was so lovely .
It was value for money .

The bus was almost full mainly back packers who were delightful . We even loved the reggae music .. It added to the fun.Thanks again Xavier .

Went on an amazing trip last Friday with Step in Paradise owner and tour guide Xavier. We travelled into the hinterland of Byron Bay and visited some beautiful "off the visitor trail" places with scenic waterfalls, funky cafes and informative koala centre. Recommend this tour.

I was picked up almost half hour late for the tour, so the day didn't get off to the greatest of starts (I find most tour guides very punctual, so I was starting to wonder if I had been forgotten about). I was most looking forward to the macadamia nut plantation visit, as most of the other things on the tour I had done or seen on previous tours. It is a bit misleading, as you go to the plantation, but just get to go in the store part which has two shelves of about 10 macadamia nut products for purchase. There is a lot of driving between locations and some of the roads are pretty windy. The brochure advertises a comfy air-conditioned van that allows for you to bring your own music. The van may be air-conditioned, but you wouldn't know because you drive the whole day with the windows down which gets a bit annoying, and the reggae music is great but is SOOO loud it hurts your ears. We went for lunch in Nimbin, and the food was good, but we waited around and wasted quite a bit of time waiting for drug deals to be done with some people on tour, and while Xavier texted on his phone for about 15 minutes after we were all done eating and waiting to go. We were left for an hour in Nimbin, which is a lot of time given there isn't much to do there (especially if you have kids - not much for them to do there!), and spent little time at both waterfalls. Xavier was a nice guy, and the day was ok, but wasn't exactly as expected based on the brochure that advertised the tour.

What a wonderful experience, a whole day of secret waterfalls, tea tree lake, koala sanctuary, amazing countryside and the lovely Xavier as tour guide. Plus a delicious lunch amounts to great value for money.

I recently did "Step in Paradise "and loved it...you see so much of the beautiful countryside with Xavier who by the way is a great guide. Waterfalls beaches lakes really nice fresh lunch at Phoenix rising cafe in Nimbin and my favourite the Koala Sanctury in Lismore. You wouldn't find better value for money .Highly recommended:)
