My family came from overseas and Port Stephens was the chosen location to introduce them to the 'bush'. Bruce provided a fantastic bush and sand dunes trip and lots of fun!

Keep it happening!

“Relaxed and enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

My family joined Bruce for a guided passenger tour which was a highlight on our trip. I emailed Bruce for my booking and was invited to choose a time that my group wished to take the tour. He's very flexible. The tour itself was very worthwhile, as we had an enjoyable time taking in the beautiful and unique sights, and Bruce quizzed us along the way to keep us entertained at the same time. He made frequent photostops for us, showed us quicksand, pointed out special ripples in the sea waves, and of course, sandboarding! For the senior who was keen to sandboard but who was yet scared, Bruce picked a shorter route for her to experience it and she definitely was pleased. The seniors in my group couldn't understand English, but even they could feel Bruce's warm personality and passion for what he's doing.

“Great time had by all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

If you only have time to do one activity while in Port Stephens make this a must do.The passenger tour is a sheer delight and the occasion was my birthday. A great time was had
cruising up and down those massive sand dunes,sand boarding down them wow what fun and with Bruce as your our tour guide you will be totally informed about the area and at the same time have a good laugh.A Tag along vehicle got bogged but Bruce being a true professional got them out in the pelting rain

The tour went to tin city and it looked like a movie set with Bruce telling us the history and stories of the colorful characters that live their most entertaining.A tour like this is great value for money, not rushed and you will not be dissapointed in any way.

''By the way ask Bruce about his pet camel and the rabbit''.

“Unique, well worth doing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

We took the opportunity to travel as passengers with Bruce while we had a brief stay at Shoal Bay and it was a real highlight. Bruce has a really excentric personality and this shines through in his tours, so too his passion for people respecting the local area. On two occasions Bruce had words with people who were either acting dangerously or in breach of the law which was a little confronting but it didn't phase us, I'm just glad nobody objected to being told off! If you go with Tag-Along, you'll get to climb higher dunes than those in larger groups and those in the Hummer tours, we went flying up the hill as other tourists had to climb on foot. We also managed to see the tin-hut thingy (I forget the name) and one of the owners (a friend of Bruce) kindly showed us into her hut which has been in generations of her family and we really appreciated that. At the end of my tour I mentioned to Bruce and some of his friends that I thought I had got my sports car stuck in the sand on the road up to the entrance and he (and a bunch of other Good Samaritans) stuck around for a good 15-20 minutes trying to help me get the car out, while we were photographed like rock stars by passing locals and tourists!

I would recommend this trip, it's great vlaue for money and you MUST try sand-boarding, it makes you feel ten years old!

“Forza S-Edition Made it to the High Dunes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

I did this 4wd tagalong tours with Bruce for my birthday.

The most vital part of this company is Bruce's character. Not only he provided the professional service of tagalong 4wd but also his ability to turn nervousness into confidence specially for first timers like me.

Not a lot of my mates thought my Forza will not make it but Bruce helped me proved them wrong!!! Thank you for the best fun!!!
