Great fun

A great tour with a very experienced guide. (Bruce). Being new to 4wds, it was a fabulous introduction for us to off road driving, combined with fantastic scenery. Highly recommend this tour, even if you are experienced off roaders. Bruce knew what he was doing, also very knowledgable about his environment. Very witty too!

Great Fun

Thank you Bruce for the great time yesterday the care and training that we received was invaluable. For a 70 year old this was my first experiance in ANY 4×4 off road driving so was a bit aprehensive but Bruce made it easy
the tour included a vist to Little Rock and Big Rock ha ha and other sites
we than ventured into the back Dunes and when we saw the size of some of the places he was taking us was to be seen to be belived.
with Bruces guidence we were able to drive up and down all the dunes
heeven entertained the kiids that was with the other parties and they had a great time on the sand boards I thought about it and could have done it but thought hmmm maybe not.
anyway do yourself a favour and do this yes it may seem a bit expensive but you can take as many people as your car can hold and the sand boarding is included

What can I say about these guys? They go above and beyond to make this experience such an amazing one. We had the best fun ever travelling the sand dunes and sand surfing. Bruce and Nicole are such beautiful people other such a great sense of humour. They had us laughing the whole time. My boys had smiles from ear to ear.

Great time as a family

Would like to say, that we had a great time as a family on this tag-long tour. But especially appreciated the time taken to explain to our 17 year old who was driving, the basics of 4 wd knowledge and some hard and fast rules to driving in Sand dunes. It was the best experience for him and one that he will use for the rest of his life. I would fully recommend doing this 4wd tag-along to anyone new to 4wd. Also a great one for families to do. I felt very safe in the hands of our tour guide. Believe me going down a steep dune for the first time ever, you need his advice!

Very friendly, very informative and a lot of fun. Five stars!

What an Experience!

We booked a guided tour with Bruce not knowing what to expect. It was a totally unique and exhilarating experience. Bruce’s driving skills were outstanding and we would certainly have faith in him to take us on another tour of the sand hills. It is incredible how well he handled the vehicle on slopes that would seem impossible to negotiate. Thanks Bruce for a great day and experience.

8 years and still going

As a school excursion to Port Stephens we have been using Bruce and Nicole to take our students on a tour of the dunes and sand boarding on Stockton beach. Every year Bruce and Nicole entertain our students with jokes and facts about the area. It is a high light of our annual year 9 excursion and highly recommend everyone to go out with Bruce and Nicole as there experience is phenomenal. Thanks for the many years past and to come!

4WD Tagalong @ Stockton Sand Dunes

An awesome experience with Bruce’s Tagalong Tours.  Bruce offered expert advice on gearing for climbs and descents and made the whole trip even more entertaining with his jokes and good humor.  Would recommend the dunes run as even with my level of experience, I was still surprised to find that there is so much more to driving a 4WD vehicle than one could expect . Thanks again Bruce. You are a legend!

So good we went again

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for another great day out on your bush, beach and dune tour. It was so good we had to go again and bring our mates who had never gone off road on their Discovery 4’s.

We all had a great day out on the sand testing out our 4wd’s capabilities. Thanks for the tips in negotiating through the dunes and for an enjoyable afternoon.

All the best!!!

If you want to have fun in Port Stephens, join Bruce’s tour!

I can’t overstate how much fun my family and I had in our own car on this tour. As a novice driver with no experience on sand, I was expecting to get stuck all the time but the training that Bruce provided as we went along kept me going through everything including challenges I never would have dreamt of trying on my own.

We unfortunately missed this year’s Blue Mountains tour but will hopefully hit the next one; I doubt we’ll ever stay at Port Stephens without a repeat of this tour.

Another awesome experience

My wife & I went on this 4wd tour after doing the Port Stephens tour earlier this year. We wanted to relax for the weekend and we did that and more. Bruce & Nicole were very friendly & accommodating from when we arrived Friday til Sunday afternoon.  There were a lot of interesting people we met and we learned more about our car & how to drive it, in the training grounds then on to some great tracks around the Lithgow area. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  The Lost City was beautiful.  Thanks once again Bruce &  Nicole for a wonderful time. Well worth it.

Great afternoon

What a great way to spend an afternoon!! The rain only added to the experience and certainly did not dampen the mood or Bruce’s great sense of humour. Bruce’s ability to be funny, knowledgeable and informative was one of the many highlights of the tour. The ability to experience the back dunes of Stockton that are now generally off limits was a fantastic opportunity. As a keen photographer they made an amazing subject.

Thank you for the skills we learned

Hello – my wife Dijana, son Oliver and I did a tour with you on Stockton beach and Samurai a few months back.

Wanted to thank you for the skills we learned – we just did Fraser Island, up past Indian Head, over to the west side and all around without getting bogged or damaging the vehicle – due to the lessons we learned on the half day with you guys.

Have a great day.

Thanks

Just wanted to say thanks to Bruce for a great tour, we were passengers on a morning tour and had a family doing a tag along behind us. Bruce was funny and informative about the area, wildlife etc. It was fun having the family tag along behind us and seeing Bruce teaching them how to use their 4wd which had probably only been doing to school run before that day!! Good mixture of bush, sand duning in the 4wd, info and sand boarding – thanks again 🙂

fabulous few hours

Hi

Just want to drop you a note to say thank you so much for a fabulous few hours on Thursday.

The driving through bush, on beach and down dunes was so much fun but the added bonus was the knowledge of Bruce about the surrounding countryside, beach headlands and wildlife in the area. He made the tour so much fun and so much more than just being in a car. The sand boarding at the end was magnificent, albeit slightly scary, and my calves certainly appreciated the work out!

We all had fun, from our 3 year old son to our 22 year old god-daughter, truly something for everyone.

I will be highly recommending you for anyone looking for a great experience and I am sure at some point we will be booking ourselves back on the tour.

Thank you

Do this tour first!

We did this tour on our last day of our visit to this region. We discovered so many places that we wished we could have spent more time at. It was a morning well spent. Just the right amount of time to see and do lots of great things but not too long. Important when you are travelling with children! Our youngest was 8 months old at the time too! Do this tour, it will be well worth your time time and money! Thanks!

We had a terrific time.

My wife Dijana and little Chocolate Face would love to say thank you. We had a terrific time.
I was able to put some of the confidence and knowledge you instilled in me into practice the next day, making the trip up just before low tide from the Gan Gan Anna Bay entrance to see Tin City, then up to the Sygna. After that we went well behind the front dunes and cruised back to the Lavis Lane entrance up some big hills.The nicest thing was that I could finally relax, knowing the vehicle was capable of making it over a variety of terrains. My wife is still hitting me for making her go down the big dunes with you – excellent!

Will certainly recommend to my friends.

Absolutely Awesome

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for an absolutely awesome day yesterday doing your Tag along Tour of the Bush, Beach and Dunes…. Definitely an experience to remember and the wife and kids are still buzzing about how great it was.

A BIG THANKS for taking the time to explain the various techniques of driving off road and making a dreary day one of the most exciting times we’ve had in a vehicle ever. To anyone considering doing the tours with Bruce, don’t hesitate as I am sure it will be a memorable experience just as ours was.

All the best and we hope to see you again in one of your other tours.

Very enjoyable and very funny experience

Hi Bruce,

This is a quick email for two reasons: one is to thank you for the tour we joined (tagged along to) on Sunday 19 May in Anna Bay. Our overseas visitor, a young lady, enjoyed the tour immensely and had a lot of belly laughs at your stories and jokes. We explained to her that she was hearing typical Aussie humour at its best, and a world view which is second to none in this world. It was a very enjoyable and very funny experience, for which many thanks. I’d do it again! Second is that you mentioned you’re planning a Blue Mountains 4WD tour in the near future.. we would be very interested, along with several other people as well (two families at least with two 4WD).

When you have a firmer plan, please let us know so we can also participate.Hoping to hear from you soon, thanks and cheers, Katalin

Everyone in our car loved it.

Thank you Bruce for making this tour so enjoyable. Everyone in our car loved it.

This tour was given as a present to my son-in-law, Pete Cribbin, who thinks it was the best present he had ever had! He was happy as he saw lots of new country as well as tackled the sand dunes. He reckons he would not have attempted the dunes without your experience.

My grandson just loved sliding down the dunes – Pete ended up having to take him down 4 times and still he wanted more, even after the steep climb up and the sand in his eyes.

I have lived in the area all my life and you showed me areas that I did not know existed. Who needs to travel overseas, we have it all here.

You tag-along tours are great value for money, see the area AND get some training as well!

Thank you so much.

Please let us know when you have any new tours available.

Fabulous- must do

This was our first foray into proper 4 wheel driving. Picked up some great tips and had a fabulous time at same time. Really enjoyed driving up and down the dunes, felt the price was worth it also once we realised the dunes are closed to public driving (they can only drive on the beach) and we experienced a spectacular sun set whilst doing a bit of sandboarding down the dunes. Please keep us posted of other 4wd trips set up in future.

Just wanted to thank your for the really fun time we all had on our tag-along tour! We didn’t know our little X-Trail was so capable and it was great to see what it could do in a safe environment. 

We all really enjoyed the stopovers as it was a great way to stretch our legs and we got some really amazing pictures, especially on the dunes when the sun was setting!

What a day!

We have driven on sand before, but wanted someone with experience to help us test out the new Outlander 4×4. Our friends with their Kluger hadn’t driven off road at all before our day out with Bruce. He started us all nice and easy, letting us calm down before hitting the next level, then throwing us off the cliff when we were good and ready! For a couple who have driven sand islands in Qld quite often, we have never been tempted to do what Bruce and Nicole told us to do – our adrenaline got a bit of a workout at the end. The kids were thrilled and we were left with the thought “that was GREAT value for money!”. Thanks Nicole and Bruce for a very special day out.

Spectacular scenery, wonderful experience!

Highly recommend! Bruce took us to the dunes, beaches and through the forest. He turned up punctually. He tailored the tour specifically to what our small group needs, which really made the trip enjoyable. There were 4 of us, our elderly parents, my husband and I. Personalised service, it was my third time to Port Stephens tours but the previous tours were with tour buses. The 4 wheel was comfortable. Very safe and professional driver who paid attention to the road which made the experience was even better. Bruce was friendly and his knowledge of local flora and fauna as well as the dunes was immense! Great for the traveller that want to see Port Stephens but do not want to sit on a tour bus of 30-40 people. Though it was the fourth time I been there, I never realised that the views over the dunes were spectacular and gorgeous! This time I did not feel drowsy and uncomfortable at all but felt fresh. I could enjoy and appreciate the scenic beauty. And the coastal scenery was lovely!

The only thing was it would be better if Bruce could also include going to Tomaree Head summit in the future. We expected to see the panoramic north coast views. We were a slightly disappointing as we thought it was a typical place where tourists would usually visit.

A thoroughly enjoyable trip overall definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you Bruce!

I can not now wait for my return when I shall be back again on the dunes this time hopefully with out getting bogged and having to get Bruce’s help to dig me out which was great as I now know what to do if it happens again and I am not on a guided tour.

Came 4 wheel driving for the first time in my new Jeep and WOW what a fantastic experience was had by both myself and my partner

It was a day out that will stay with me the dunes were fantastic, the driving up and down them was out of this world and Bruce was a fantastic teacher, guide to the local dunes and beaches and also when it came to doing things he always tested out the water first so to speak so the safety aspect was first class.

If you only have time to  do one activity while in Port Stephens make this a must do. The passenger tour is a sheer delight and the occasion was my birthday. A great time was had cruising up and down those massive sand dunes, sand boarding down them wow what fun and with Bruce as your our tour guide you will be totally informed about the area and at the same time have a good laugh.

A Tag along vehicle got bogged but Bruce being a true professional got them out in the pelting rain.
 
The tour went to tin city and it looked like a movie set  with  Bruce telling us the history and stories of the colorful characters that live there most entertaining. A tour like this is great value for money,  not rushed and you will not be disappointed in any way.

G’day Bruce

I just wanted to let you know how great our trip out with you was last Sunday, the 10th July. You know I was a bit hesitant heading out there in my AWD Toyota Kluger but you put my mind at ease.

Your instructions were so simple, clear and easy to follow and you soon had me doing things in the dunes (and in the Kluger) that I still can’t really believe. I just hope I can get the grip marks made by the better half out of the door handle on her side. Your personality and good humoured attitude made the trip a very memorable experience. My kids are still talking about what we did out there.

I couldn’t recommend you and your tour highly enough and I would say to anyone wanting to drive their own vehicle on the dunes to do the tour with you first. Even if its only for the very important knowledge of the dunes gained from you like “quick sand” and sand recovery techniques.

As for the Kluger, I can assure anyone with one that it handled everything thrown at it like the other 4wd vehicles that were with us. Especially when the driver followed Bruce’s instructions!!!!!!!

Thanks for a fantastic experience and we will be back next year to do it with you again.

Cheers

Best 4WD tours around

I don’t know what I can say that will give these tours the respect they deserve. This has been the second time we came on these tours (as the first time was so good) and again, we weren’t disappointed. The dunes are incredible, the ship wreck is a must see and tin city is well worth a look. All in all, these are perfect tours Bruce is a real character and really makes the whole experience that much more enjoyable. We went along as passengers in his car and I can tell you we didn’t stop laughing the entire time. If you have never been 4 Wheel driving before and are a little hesitant to take your own vehicle, go with Bruce and learn from a master. Then head out in your own vehicle as a tag along. We have been on 2 different tours with him now and we will be back to do more. As will our friends. Thanks again Bruce Kind regards,

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed your trip earlier today. Of course the scenery and experience was magnificent, but your personality carried the day and was a real hit with my Mum and friends. They really enjoyed your company… I actually live in Sydney whereas the girls reside down Bendigo way. I was only up there for the weekend whereas the girls were up for the week… Anyway, what I’m trying to say is I’ll definitely be back with my partner, Donna (who couldn’t make it), and we’ll definitely come on your trip sometime soon.

A fun trip with some excellent sand dune techniques thrown in

Thanks for the great trip in Jan 11. For a newbie to 4WDriving, Bruce was patient and taught us some of the skills and techniques required when driving on sand. Heading off down a slope with no brakes took some courage but Bruce certainly instilled the confidence in us. Has given us a lot more confidence in exploring other places now.

Thanks for a great afternoon! Safe, fun and informative.

It has given us the confidence to enjoy our 4WD off road (OK, well really me as Mark wasn’t concerned anyway). Of particular enjoyment was the opportunity for ‘reminder slaps’, seeing Bruce and his fairy friends sandboard (and no, you didn’t win fairly!) and the fact that the team are really supportive and encouraging. It was great fun, the kids had a ball and we can only echo the feedback that others have left. If you are looking for a great experience, call ‘Tagalong’ you won’t regret it!

I was very nervous about doing this tag-a-long as this was our first time taking our 4WD into the sand dunes but you filled us with confidence and soon had us negotiating ascents and descents that we would never have attempted. The dune scenery and Tin City were amazing, just beautiful! Who would have thought I would be sand boarding at 57 years old. But most of all,  your friendly relaxed attitude and knowledge of what you were doing, made us feel safe and confident enough to continue 4WDriving in the future.

We had an absolute ball

Bruce, just dropping you a line to say how much fun we had on your tag-along tour on the 19/10/10. We tagged along in my Zook, a little nervous and apprehensive but your instructions were second to none and my confidence in my abilities and the vehicle abilities grew by the minute. We had an absolute ball, the highlight of our stay in Port Stephens. The repeated adrenaline rushes as we conquered the dunes, the inspiring views we managed to see, the history we learnt and the confidence we built were all a part of what I can only describe as an AWESOME experience. I can only STRONGLY recommend that anyone wanting some adventure give you a call and join your tour. Thank you for the experience, I am eagerly planning another trip to Stockton and hope to see you on the dunes.

Never thought the Rav4 could do what it did. Bruce was great, he knows his stuff and has a great sense of humor. It was really a great day – if you’re not sure about driving on the sand or dunes – Bruce is your man. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience – thanks again Jason

“CRUZER” OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE

Oh my goodness. You succeeded moving me out of my comfort zone. I was terrified never been 4wd before especially on sand dunes. Would never have thought our New Land Cruiser could do such things. We thought it was just built to pull our caravan on bitumen! Thanks so much for letting us enjoy what you get to do every day. We had a blast and intend doing it again someday. My boys just loved the sand boarding even Ryan with his broken collar bone on the toboggan. Fancy that meeting two other Jo’s on the same trip. Cool hey! CHEERS JO & 1, Mat & Ryan of {Canberra}

Great time

We did the Tin City and sandboarding and had an absolute ball. Bruce was very thorough and i learnt a lot about how to tackle the sand dunes. Some of the dunes that we did, i would never have thought were possible, and Bruce’s advise was second to none. The 3 kids (3 year old, and twins aged 5) loved it plus the sand boarding. What great fun, however the climb back up after each run was hard work. Thanks again Bruce….

Best ever

I went yesterday on a tour as a passenger with Bruce. Despite the fact that I am disabled and use a walking stick, I was able to appreciate fully the whole experience. Bruce made me laugh all the way through. We were expecting a 3 hours tour and in fact it finished after 4 hours and 15 minutes. We not only drived through the sand dunes, but also went to tin city and did some sand boarding. Even I, despite my disability managed to do it. (okay coming back up the sand dune was a nightmare, but I did it). Bruce was ever so patient and always made you feel that you could do things. I would definitively recommend it to anyone. If you want lots of thrill and laughter, book your toor ASAP.

Brilliant!

Whilst we have been to Stockton before, we have never experienced anything like this. We originally booked this tour so that we weren’t alone in testing out our new 4×4 – at least someone would be there to get us out of trouble! We also had the parents with us – who had never been offroad before so they were quite excited but nervous at the same time. At the end of the day we had a blast and mum and dad had a great time. We enjoyed Bruce’s comedy and education on Stockton’s part in WW2 and was very interested by Tin City – although we had driven by it several times, we had never stopped to see it and learn about it. I am more than thrilled that we booked this tour and would recommend to anyone – even the experienced drivers and frequent Stockton visitors! Thanks Bruce, it was the highlight of our short stay!

highly recommend you guys

We have been to this area for years and this time decided to take our very domesticated 4wd (School and shops is as tough as it’s seen til now) I was a little nervous driving off road and discovered ‘Tag along tours” where you drive your own 4wd/SUV and they lead you in their 4WD guiding you safely but with a few thrills, the whole way. If you are in the area and have a AWD or 4wd I can’t recommend these guys highly enough. We have a Nissan X-Trail which is no real all terrain vehicle but Bruce our guide took us to places we could never have dreamt of going to ourselves.

On top of that we had a wonderful insight into the history and background of the area. These are the largest sand dunes in the southern hemisphere and really awesome. When Waikiki suffered storm damage many years ago, the sand from here was shipped over to help repair the damage. (Well that’s the story I’ve been told many times) We drove to the highest dunes as well as an awesome run along the huge Stockton Beach. If you have been too nervous to take your car off road and want to see a truly unique and beautiful area I can’t recommend these guys enough

Mad-keen driving fan

I’m a mad-keen driving fan. My wife, well, isn’t. To say she was a little nervous about the idea of exploring the Stockton Beach sand dunes in a borrowed 4WD was an understatement!

However, our summer afternoon with Bruce was one of the best things we’ve ever done as a family. The terrain and the scenery is simply jaw-dropping, the skills required to keep you going in a very challenging environment were expertly relayed by our hosts, and the sense of achievement once you’ve conquered the dunes (and you will!) is incredible.

And all you need is your 4WD, your common sense and a smile. Bruce took the time to make sure our kids (12, 6 and 2) were thoroughly entertained, too, and they teased my poor wife unmercifully the entire time!

I’ve been lucky enough to do a lot of cool things with cars, but the tour of one Australia’s most awe-inspiring National Parks, with such a gracious host, has firmly planted itself right towards the top of my list. I absolutely recommend 4WD Tag-Along Tours to anyone – and so does my wife!

More than just tag-along, you actually learn to 4wd

My sons and I just spent a week up at Nelson Bay. On day three we decided to go on this Tag-along tour. I presumed it would just be another bit of holiday entertainment. I was very wrong. We had a fantastic day learning to 4wd. We learnt how to drive down enormous sand dunes and be confident driving on sand. We had such a good time that we knew we would do it again. We took Bruce’s advise and bought the recovery kit. Since our tour we’ve spent every day out on the sand dunes . We’ve been bit by the sand dune 4wd bug. On our third day out on the dunes we managed to get ourselves bogged. With what we learnt from Bruce and the recovery kit we managed to save ourselves with no help. Also, there could be no one better to take you on the tour than Bruce. My family wish to thank Bruce for introducing us to something we will be doing a lot more. I can fully recommend a tag-along tour. Regards John, Aidan and Zackary

Most Amazing 4WD Experience

Bruce,

Thank you for sharing the most amazing 4WD experience with us yesterday. We had a ball!

As we said to you the tour surpassed our expectations by a mile. We thought that the tour included a trip along the beach down to Stockton and back, and were delighted when we found out that you were going to show us how to tackle the Dunes and have the opportunity to experience some of NSW most spectacular scenery.

In particular, you provided us with insight into our 4WD capabilities and encouraged us to push our own driving capabilities in a safe manner.

We have experienced tours all over the world, in particular early 2008, sand dune tours in Dubai, and by far your patience and focus on safety was of the highest standard and we should know because we have assessed safety and compliance of over 2500 tour operators across Australia.

We will highly recommend your tour services to our friends and colleagues.

I have attached some photos for your library should you wish to include any of these on your website.

Thanks again for such a fantastic experience

To Whom It May Concern,

This letter provides me the opportunity to recommend 4WD Tag-Along Tours, Bruce Boyle. Thanks for a wonderful day on Stockton sand dunes with your Business.

Nissan took part in an incentive day for our salesmen on Stockton sand dunes. Our salesmen had experience in different vehicles from X-Trails through to Patrols on the sand dunes. Some of our salesmen had no experience in the sand and by the end of the day they had acquired knowledge of the vehicles capabilities and four-wheel driving skills.

We were impressed by how safety was of paramount importance, not only for the 4WD vehicles but also for the occupants. Bruce is knowledgeable and experienced in all aspect of four wheel driving off-road and education. Bruce is a professional outfit to work with and work well together as a team, and showed very good people skills.

I have had many comments back from our salesmen that they were very pleased with the day with 4WD Tag-Along Tours. I have no hesitation in recommending Bruce and the Tag-Along 4WD Business. I look forward to doing business with them again.

Regards,

What a great time

G’day

We did a Tag a Long tour a few weeks back and I told Bruce we were then heading up to Fraser Island. I just wanted to pass along our thanks to Bruce and give him a bit of an update. Fraser Island was fantastic…thanks to Bruce’s training and sound advice. We did over 400 km and never got bogged, although we did try. While others were sinking in the sand, we cruised right on by thanks to low tire pressure and not panicking! Good on ya Bruce.

Everytime we came to a white-knuckle encounter and got through it no problem we gave a great cheer to Bruce’s teaching! What a great time.

Thanks again

Excellent Day out with the kids

Bruce, Thank you for a wonderful day out with my daughter and her friend. Six years old can be a handful, but your tour ensured that there was not time for them to get up to mischief. Both the girls had a ball and I hope your hearing returns, after hearing their screams with excitement when driving down the dunes. Highly recommend to non-4W Driver’s as well, sit back in the passenger seat and let the expert do the work. The only draw back to the day, was piggy backing the girls up the dune after they sand bordered to the bottom. Great day was had by all, thank you again.

Great mentoring and guided tour you gave our family

We would like to drop a few words of appreciation for the great mentoring and guided tour you gave our family. Your knowledge is great but not only in 4WD also about the history of the places we drove through. Needless to say we were very impress to see the true love you have for the environment and the respect you have for the Indigenous people sacred places. You have spoke very highly of the people with businesses in your area, which made us feel very comfortable with you. Your great sense of humour made was a great wall breaker, by the end of the trip we felt we were saying goodbye to an old friend. Thanks for being such a great support and helping out with the camera, we now have great photos as well. We now know how to use our 4WD – about time ha? Amazing trip for all of us that we will never forget. We will recommend you guys to anyone who ever want to know how to drive their 4WD and to those who haven’t they should still go with you and feel what it is like to go down such a high dune… something that many people think – it only happened in the movies! Thank you again, and we hope to meet you guys again in one of our trips there – you gave a good name to Port Stephens. We wish you the best of health and luck in everything. Cheers.

Never 4wd’d before.

I had a ball!!! I have a 21 year old Toyota Bunderra with no power steering and have never 4WD’d before but Bruce got me driving up the dunes, down the dunes and digging myself out of the dunes! He pushed me out of my comfort zone but always made me feel I was in safe hands. Bruce has an excellent teaching manner, knows an awful lot about the beautiful Stockton Beach area, and has many great stories to tell. I would recommend Tag-Along Tours to anybody who enjoys driving and the Great Outdoors!

THE BEST

For a couple who have just bought their 1st 4wd this experience was informative,and absolutely fantastic, we can’t emphasise enough how important it is to have the lessons and fun with Bruce before hitting the Stockton Sand Dunes on your own, thanks Bruce. We now feel confident to go down those cliff’s of sand, and the sites were unbelievable. Allan & Trish
