Traveler Reviews

    This private tour was a great way to see Canberra in one day from Sydney. The pick up was prompt. Scott the tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating and flexible to my needs for this trip. For me personally, I don't feel that I know a country until I have seen its capital. there are large tour buses on Mondays and Fridays but if your time is short and you are especially keen to go to Canberra, then this tour is the way to do it.
