“All i can say is WOW! Had the most magical time in the sidecar this morning. Driving down windy roads, through mist & fog and even discovered a place I never knew about & i live in the area! Highly recommend this experience (2hrs). Andrew is the most laid back but informative person. You get a different perspective of everything when you’re in a sidecar!”
“Thank you Andrew for a great time today from Thirroul over the Sea Cliff bridge it was awesome. We felt very safe in your capable hands. We would highly recommend this tour.”
“What a fabulous way to see the beautiful city of Wollongong. Andrew was so friendly and chatted the whole trip. He was so knowledgeable about the history of Wollongong. Thank you so much.”
A great relaxing experience and a fun way to see some of Wollongong’s nicest locations, Andrew as your host makes you feel very welcomed, does a fantastic job, very friendly, great service and you will learn a thing or two you didn’t know about Wollongong! Thanks so much Andrew!
“Highly recommend. Loved our tour around Kiama very knowledgeable, very relaxing and definitely booking again”
“We purchased this experience for my dad for his 91st Birthday. Dad and my sister thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Andrew has a great knowledge of the area and pointed out some really interesting facts along the way. Andrew was, friendly and relaxed which was great because dad at 91 was a bit nervous at the start but was soon put at ease and got off the bike with a huge smile on his face. His bike was comfortable and although looked vintage, is a late model with all the safety features of a late model bike. I could not recommend this experience enough for someone looking for a special gift idea. This stretch of the coast would be one of the most beautiful drives on the east coast and there is no better way to see it. Thanks Andrew.”
”I really enjoyed the ride. It is a totally different experience than being in a car. I loved the noise of nature around us as well. The scenery today was stunning on such a beautiful day. Your explanation of history at various sites was also well researched. Thank you very much. I would recommend your ride to anyone.”
“We loved our joyride and kept talking about it all day!”
