Excellent tour. Punctual service. Driver had great knowledge of the program’Home & Away’ and the cast. It was outstanding having a cast member on board the bus to answer questions and give anecdotes about the program. Visiting the locations was very special and we were able to take photos of all our special Summer Bay places. Outstanding

Great view and sensations in the helicopter! Sydney Harbour and seaside are definitely worth being seen from the sky. The pilots' comments were useful and made it an even more pleasant ride. The gentleman who drove the shuttle from the CBD to the airport was also very friendly.
