  • This was a really great day unfortunately we had very heavy rain so the ferry was rough and we were saturated.
    Or tour guide Ann was great, very informative and took us to all the places she could. The train ride was fun and the tunnels were fascinating, there was a feeling of what really went on waiting for the enemy. We will repeat this tour when return to Perth.

  • This was such a great tour and a good day out. A slow paced and easy going tour.

  • Had an absolutely awesome day. Everything ran as smoothly as planned. Our tour guide Carol was exceptional and made sure our group were well informed and did everything possible to make sure we enjoyed the day. Can't fault anything from morning tea, ferry ride, lunch tour of island and train trip. Superb day! Thank you
