SYDNEY NORTHERN BEACHES DAY TOURS - Frenches Forest - 61 2 9453 1639 / 0413 051 643
'I'll confess from the start that owner of SYDNEY NORTHERN BEACHES DAY TOURS , Dave Cook, is a friend of mine but I would not recommend him if I didn't think you'd have a great time. SYDNEY NORTHERN BEACHES DAY TOURS collect you from your hotel or accommodation and provide you with a tour of the most beautiful region of Sydney - Sydney's Northern Beaches. SYDNEY NORTHERN BEACHES DAY TOURS are one of the few tours that will take you to Bible Gardens for breathtaking views of Palm Beach, Pittwater, Lion Island and beyond to the Central Coast. The tours are undertaken in a new minibus ensuring personal service - not just one of a crowd. Dave is a great guy with a friendly manner and great personality. What he doesn't know about the Northern Beaches is not worth knowing"
As a foot note Dave is now running an airport suttle to the Northern Beaches and only undertakes tours periodically. Either way, give him a call.
