I don’t want to say average as seriously we had such an amazing driver who tried his best to show us everything and tell us about everything. Such a great treatment I would give the bus driver 5 stars. But I think the activity itself was average for me and wanted to be fair and give it 4 stars. As I expected more of spectacular sites. The waterfalls were nice but I came across that in Sydney Too, so it wasn’t something different. So I would say it’s not the activity maybe I expected something different to what I experienced in the past.
