Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Organised. Friendly. Gian was overly and made my teenage girls feel comfortable. Good equipment condition. Good dive site just 5 minutes offshore. Only annoying thing is no free parking nearby (10min walk).

    This tour was amazing. Interesting facts, great guides and awesome kayaking. The guides were so helpful and made it all feel like a breeze! Unfortunately we didn’t get to see any dolphins but was offered another trip again. Great time and great fun. Thank you

    If there were 6 stars I would give it 6! Ricky was a fantastic and knowledgeable guide. Our family had never paddle boarded before and Ricky made it super easy and relaxed. Was such a great way to spend the morning, so peaceful and loads of wildlife, fish, ray’s and eagles. And the homemade treats were delicious. Highly recommend!

    "A very professionally run trail ride with safety and welfare of riders and horses clearly a priority. I would highly recommend this experience while in Byron Bay

    I’ve booked 5 days of group lessons with Kool Katz.

    I definitely had a good time! Terry really tries to give everyone an amazing day of surfing. Every single day I’ve joined everyone was able to stand up.

    Because of sickness I wasn’t able to participate on my last day and Terry was so kid to refund me for it. Thanks again!

    What an amazing whale watching experience! We were unlucky with the weather on our first attempt but we were given plenty of notice and managed to go out the very next day. We were very reassured by all the great communication, advice and safety precautions the team send prior to the trip.

    The trip itself was unbelievable. The crew were amazing at spotting whales, dolphins and even a turtle and a ray. We had 3 young kids (5, 8, 11) who were so excited to see so many whales come up and swim past.

    Whilst there’s no guarantees we were lucky enough to see a mum and calf breaching above the water which was absolutely amazing. We can’t thank the team enough for an incredible morning on the bay.

    We’ll be back to try the other experiences!

    I use this shuttle service to get to the Crystal Castle every year. Being picked up at your hotel is wonderful. Wendy is very accommodating and a wonderful host. The trip is always comfortable and Wendy can let you know of other things in the Byron area if you need to know something in particular. The Crystal Castle itself has changed a lot with different offerings over the last 5 years but always a restful experience. Can't recommend Vision Walks Eco Tours Enough to anyone wanting to do one of their many activities including the Crystal Castle run, Wendy will make you feel very welcome. 10/10

    Really great team super helpful and supportive throughout lessons!!
    Did five lessons and only 2 (one each) pictures sadly which we had to pay for a package of them and wasn’t worth paying for.

    Fantastic tour, guides were professional and friendly and made sure everyone was safe at all times. We only saw dolphins in the distance but were lucky enough to see many whales pretty up close! Great value for money, would definitely recommend.

    My husband gave me a ride in a balloon for our anniversary last week. Our ride started at the Channon Showgrounds and we landed on a farm in Eltham. The views were spectacular. Our pilot was extremely obliging and the support crew were all passionate about the region!!! Highly recommended!!!

    The tour was awesome, we saw plenty of whales and the tour guides were really concerned about giving us the best experience. Nice guys, very profissional and I definitely recommend it.
    You can get wet and cold during the tour so go with your sandals, shorts and a wind breaker to be comfortable.

    A couple of years ago, I kicked off my gyrocopter journey with a trial instructional flight with Flygyro over Byron Bay. As I was admiring the scenic beauty from the sky, the instructor not only demonstrated the gyrocopter's capabilities but also allowed me to take the controls and experience the excitement of flying. It was then when I totally fell for gyrocopters, and Oli, the flight instructor, just made the whole experience even more awesome with his teaching style. Two years later I call myself a gyrocopter pilot, and all thanks to Oli and his dedicated training.

    I picked this school primarily for its strong safety culture, especially considering the not-so-great reputation gyrocopters have, particularly the handmade ones from the past. I believe that the shift to factory-built aircraft globally in the last decade has proven that they can be safe.

    In this flight school, you will find a combination of discipline, rigor, systematic training, and a serious approach. Instructors here have a way of encouraging you to push your limits and shape awareness of human factors, but always with safety as the top priority. That's the aspect I admire the most about this school. On top of all that, they make the learning experience enjoyable and leave you feeling proud of your achievements after every single flight.

    Combine a breathtaking location with a strong safety culture and a touch of enjoyment, and you've got the winning formula for a successful gyrocopter pilot.
