Now I firmly believe I am a citizen of the world and my mission is to guide people into nature on spiritual experiences that will help them to "Rise Up into the best versions of themselves".

Very carefully narrated with lots of interesting facts and histories of the region told from the point of view of a conservationist and a guardian of the future welfare planet earth. Great value

My partner and I absolutely enjoyed this trip and it was definitely a highlight. Cristiano is a very welcoming and kind host, we learned so much about the true spirit of Byron and it’s surrounds and seen places we never would have if we did not go on this experience. The waterfall was abundant this time of the year (Feb) with all the rain that has come so we had a swim in the waterfall. After we went to temple and glow worm experience and cristiano played beautiful tune that made it even more enlightening. We got to explore the temple at our own pace and really appreciate nature. Final stop we went Minyon falls lookout and ate a hearty vegan/vegetarian meal with our new found friends. This experience is accessible and nothing strenuous at all, we drive to the places and walks are short and easy. We were pleased to experience Byron through a local’s eyes and even reevaluate our lifestyle coming home, applying more of what we learned from Cristiano. We really appreciated the topics he discussed in the bus while driving they are valuable and have changed the way we approach life! Can’t wait to come back
