A full and interesting day exploring the Freycinet national park. Alex was very knowledgeable of the area and was able to clearly explain what each element of the tour included. The travel was well paced with plenty of food and bathroom breaks. Managed to see many beautiful things all in a single day which would have not been possible if we’d tried to do this on our own. Highly recommended if you only have limited time in the region.

Sadly, we had terrible weather the day we did our tour but our driver and tour guide, Alex did everything he could to make our day trip as good as he could in view of the fact that we could not do all the planned activities he had in store for us because of the rain. So, all in all we still had an enjoyable day. We’ll done Alex!

Alessandro is a pleasant and convivial host. The tour included a necessary stop at a great bakery in Richmond for coffee and breakfast, saw the bridge, and heard stories along the way. The hike culminated in spectacular views of Wineglass Bay and then a surprise stop at a winery for lunch. It was an enjoyable and educational day out.
