Great tour to do when you first arrive at LH Island, Pete’s very informative and comical tour is a must. Thank you to Peter & Janine for a great morning and for opening up your home to us and the very scrumptious morning tea..

We enjoy showing off the gem that is Lord Howe Island very fortunate to call our little corner at Neds Beach our home, thanks for joining us and the great comment.

Peter’s tour is an essential activity to do early to get your bearings on the Island and decide what else you may want to see and do. Great home-made coffee and muffins (thanks Janine) a bonus.

Informative, fun and a must do for any newbie to the island. Peter shows you where to go and what to see, history, track entries, even the Islands impressive/ progressive approach to recycling! Highly recommended and a fantastic afternoon tea thanks Janine!

I've probably not got a lot different to say about this excellent tour. Very friendly and affable, Peter was well informed about all sorts of island life. Even the tour of the tip and recycling centre was interesting!

Jewel236, thank you for the review, strange as it may seem the waste management on the island is a bit of a jewel in the crown and often a high light, rightly so something among the many things to be proud to share!
