Had a great time, but saw no filming! VERY disappointed the place looked deserted all closed up! we could have done the tour on our on! they knew no filming going on that day so they could have organised a actor to meet us to have photos but nothing the tour guide and driver were great ! just came along way from England to be disappointed and have watched the show from the start!

This tour was fantastic. Tour guides were very informative and made you feel welcome. We were lucky there was filming that day and got to meet and chat to Irene, Leah, Dean and young Bella. Got photos with them too. Also saw Colby but he didn’t stop. Highly recommended for fans of Home and Away.

It was great seeing the actual Palm beach otherwise known as Summer bay.
The pier is a coffe and bar and nothing like the actual coffee shop.
The only negative thing was it was just after Easter and so didnt see any filming.

A very informative tour with excellent staff. Lisa was very knowledgeable about the programme and kept everyone together. It was nice to be dropped off at Manly beach.

This trip was so much better than expected as we met some of the cast of Home and Away!
Pick up in Sydney was straightforward and the weather was perfect for the trip to Palm Beach seeing other stunning beaches on the way. We were told that a film crew would be joining us as they were filming for a special 30th anniversary programme to be shown mid March. It was great fun for us all on the minibus to Sing the Home and Away theme song! Near the beach, Justin and Robbo hopped on board for a quick chat. It was great seeing the bait shop and filming taking place. We were lucky to meet Ray Meagher aka Alf Stewart who was so friendly and took the time to chat to us all and have photos taken with us. Some of the production crew were also on board to give us background information about the programme too. All in all it was a perfect trip and the drop off in Manley with ferry back to Sydney ended a perfect afternoon and early evening.

Tour was ok. Tour guides were very knowledgeable but I wouldn't insist anyone do they tour unless they are a BIG home and away fan.

The icing on the cake for me was they were actually filming and I had my photo taken with Robbo. The disappointment for me was that we didn't get off the coach to take photos of the hoses, may be that could be included next time.

Having spent time cruising around New Zealand and attending several shore excursions, on returning to Sydney we did this tour, and I can say even though I was pressurized by my partner to attend the trip, it was best excursion we did during our entire holiday, it really was amazing, and extraordinary value for money. We arrived at the actual filming set, while filming was taking place, however we were still allowed to get up close just a few feet during filming. The actors took time out during filming breaks to meet us and chat. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the set and how things worked. highly recommended even if your not fan of the programme like myself.
