Nicholas G.

Perth, WA, Australia

G'Day and Welcome! I'm the newest member of the ToursByLocals team.

I'm based in Perth, Western Australia, and I've lived here over 40 years, so I know it really well. My parents were poor migrants from Greek Macedonia who came here in the late 1940's, so I fully appreciate how lucky I am to live in Australia. A land of opportunity and great beauty. I'm a big advocate for protecting the environment, animals and the Aboriginal people. My favourite local charity is called 'Dogs Behind Bars', where we foster and re-home dogs. My current foster dog is 'Sandor the Hound' a sweet 32kg Amstaff boy.

I've worked in hospitality, and studied Engineering and Business at university. I spent 25 years in the professional world building great software. Very rewarding, yes. But being locked away in an office all day is not much fun. Since I prefer to be in the outdoors, I started my own private charter and tour business in 2008, and I haven't looked back since. The last few years I've specialised as a full-time private guide and I'm loving it. My new office is in the outdoors, and I just can't get enough of it. I love showing visitors our little corner of the world, because Western Australia has so much to offer.

**LUXURY TOURING**
Bus-style tours with 'strangers' are NOT for me. If you feel the same, then you're in the right place. I focus on the more discerning traveller who prefers a tailor-made itinerary just for them. We also ride in luxury cars like the Range Rover Sport and Mercedes Viano. Great customer service and communications at every step. If you're looking for the best touring experience possible, then you're in capable hands. I even offer professional photography of your tour!

I cater to small private groups (1-6 people), and this ensures it's always a very personalized experience. I occasionally drive larger groups, particularly for extended family groups (20 people). For groups of up to 4 people, we travel in a luxurious Range Rover Sport. For larger groups of up to 7 people, we use a luxury Mercedes Benz Viano. For bigger family groups I can access a 25-seater van.

**CUSTOM ITINERARIES**
While I do offer a number of suggested tours, I'm flexible and happy to make adjustments to suit your preferences. The ULTIMATE tour is all about designing a custom bespoke tour around YOUR preferences, not the other way around. I always try to adjust tours to suit what YOU like best. Some people prefer wineries/breweries, some prefer foodie places, some sightseeing and animals… I'm very flexible. We can even adjust tours on the day if you like.

**PLACES WE GO**
I specialise in the South-Western quarter of Western Australia. This includes the hotspots like Perth, Kings Park, Fremantle, Cottesloe Beach, Perth Hills, and the Swan Valley, as these are all very close to the CBD (less then 30 minutes' drive). I also offer tours outside of the city like the Pinnacles (2. 5hrs drive North), Margaret River (3. 5hrs drive South). Then even further North you have the Abrohlos Islands and Monkey Mia (dolphins). The last few are very far, so they tend to be multi-day tours and very customised.

**AMAZING EXPERIENCES**
My goal is to ensure your tour is smooth, easy and 100% perfect. Tell me what you like and don't like and I'll craft the perfect tour experience for you and your family.

I look forward to hearing from you. . .
All the best, Nicholas :-)

A Recent Review of this guide

Our tour with Nic was wonderful! He customized the tour to fit our personal interests, and it was fantastic. We spent a long time exploring the Pinnacles, had a lovely lunch at the beach, climbed some sand dunes, then visited Yanchep Park's kangaroos and koalas. Perfect day.
