This was the best tour you can get. Everything was wonderful. The driver was enjoyable, with stories, history, refreshing inclusion in his telling of history, how to spot animals, how the land was formed ions ago, etc. My DH brought his folding electric wheelchair and the driver was gracious to help get it on and off the vehicle. I cannot say enough about this wonderful trip. And the weather was very cooperative that day. The vehicle was in great shape, had a smooth ride. What can I say more? It was thorourly enjoyable.

Absolutely fantastic day out - even though it takes over 12 hours our host Paul provided so much facts and stories throughout the day that it seemed to pass very quickly. All the stops that we made provided superb photo opportunities to make it a truly memorable day - lunch and Ice Cream at Apollo Bay was delicious - the minibus was very spacious and the air conditioning ensured that we were travelling in a comfortable temperature throughout the day. We brought our 2 sons with us (19 & 23) who normally spend the day on their mobiles but they really enjoyed the whole experience and factual information provided throughout the day. And there is only one way to finish this review - Paul, from all of us THANK YOU for a fantastically entertaining day - it was a truly memorable day
