Everybody in this shop is very nice and helpful. You feel welcome straight away. I'm normally not a person who buys vouchers or trips through travel agencies, even if i worked in one myself, but here I wanted to! I like people who like their job and know what they're talking about. Thank you for your help, Kevin!

Greg figured us out pretty quickly and penciled out a suggested itinerary which we have been following. Some of the places he suggested would not have been on our... More

Family holiday of swimming, fishing and relaxing. Had the dog with us and we all enjoyed the warm water to swim in and relaxing together. Had a few nights of rain but the sun shone every day. Butterflies everywhere for two days-they came in from the water? off the Islands or further south but there were thousands, blue and black-just... More

I visited the shop for help with local bike routes and the staff were very helpful. They provided me with a map and very clear directions. You do not want to get lost outside in the Australian summer! I had a great day out on the bike all thanks to the staff at Discover 1770 Tours. I highly recommend popping... More

Lisa, Kevin, Greg and Shar were an absolute treat. They created a positive environment in which we felt no pressure, they were just so genuinely friendly and down to earth, eager to suggest fun things to see and do in the area and surrounding areas. Ended up surfing and had a blast, and they gave us some great photos from... More

Thanks to them we managed to book all the activities we planned and more and keep within our time frame. We had a very positive experience using the services of Discover... More

We found these place while looking for a swimming suit. Excellent advise about the swimming suit and about the tours. Lisa and Holly, very kind and very helpful people. Unforgettable experience at Lady Musgrave Island. We strongly recommend this place when visiting Agnes Water. :) :)
