Good: Tour Guide Mr Claude. He really looks after everyone very well. Full of knowledge abt the valley. Bad: Tour finishes by 4 PM. It would be good if an extra hr or 2 can be added which can provide patrons free and easy time at one of the vineyards. Overall wonderful experience.

I couldn’t recommend this experience highly enough, our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer every question asked of her. We were given a comprehensive tour of the stadium from the coaches bench to the most comfortable seats available.

Wonderful day!! Lots of Quokkas to see including babies, so cute!!! Such a beautiful place to visit, the scenery is great from one end of the island to the other. Make a booking, you won't be disappointed!!

An amazing stadium and we had a fantastic tour guide (Bruce) who connected to everyone in our tour and made it an interesting and fun experience. Well worth doing.

The tour we did was well organised and very informative. The lunch was tasty and fresh.
