The booking, the pick-up, the trip, despite heavy traffic, was good. Our guide Daniel T. made every effort to catch up with delays (traffic jams) and to respond to requests. He organized excellent dinners, pre-orders and when we came the food was ready for all participants. Unfortunately the weather was not good, but we still enjoyed the trip. Daniel T. gave us a lot of information about the area and the history.

Great day out. Paul, our guide, was great fun, he dealt with the traffic issues really well still ensuring we had a good day answered all that was promised. Although he did torture us with the koala song! It is a very long day as sunset is not until 9pm in mid summer, so don’t expect to get back to your hotel until we’ll after midnight.

This trip was in short, fantastic. Loved the tour guide, DJ, and driver all in one, Emma, who made the experience all the more enjoyable with her tales and stories from yesteryears to today. The sights were good as was the entertainment. Would have loved to stop at the countryside for 15 minutes though. The sunset tour in itself is quite heavy, so bring a water bottle and some cash if you're planning to eat. other than that - 6 stars if there was an option.
