  • great day, nice boat tour in swan river, plenty of time to see the island on your own, well organised

  • great day, nice boat tour through swan river, all well set

  • Amazing tour! A must see for sure! very family friendly

  • It was a nice tour. There is a nice restaurant by the water and they serve good hot food, should try that. We had lunch included in our tour price and it was good.

  • Tour of the Island was very good and the guide was very knowledgeable. There are only two stops on the tour and I would liked to have had more stops. The day was very hot and to cycle around the island and cover the distance we did would be very challenging.
    Great experience

  • Fabulous boat trip from Perth across to Rottnest Island. Great hiring a bike to find my way about. Nice lunch in one of the restaurants. Fantastic photo opportunities.

  • Despite the bad weather the tour didn't disappoint. Saw the Quokkas, which is what I came for! Good informative tour by guide about the history of the Island.

  • Caught in bad storm which hit Perth, body shattering extremely rough sea ferry ride, but return trip to Perth not so rough, rained all day during tour of Rottnest Island, wet and windy but very cute quokkas everywhere.

  • The tour was well done, it showed the attractions that make Rottnest Island famous. Would highly recommend this tour

  • Rottnest island is very beautiful and peaceful. As we went there on Monday, we hardly see anybody. In the afternoon, you get many chances to meet the legendary smile-face Quokka. They are really cute and friendly to people. However, I will recommend to visit the island by bicycle instead of taking bus as it is really a perfect place for cycling and it is more flexible to go around the island by bike.
