A very smooth operation. Bikes were taken across to Rottnest and then given with helmets and locks. If you wanted an e bike you would need to organise before setting off, unable to upgrade after booking. A must is to visit the bakery to get your provisions for the day, as you need to carry food and drink as not freely available elsewhere.

Great day out. The service was quick and there was a well delivered commentary. Bikes were distributed and collected easily. They were in good condition. Navigating around the island was easy too. The boat over was of good quality and comfortable. Rottnest was spectacular. A thoroughly good day. The only issue all day was getting a QR code. After booking online snd having the App which provided a QR code I still had to line up at the jetty sand get another paper copy QR code before I was allowed to board. That was annoying.

Great day out lovely island and so many beaches to see . The island does have shops and food places to eat however i would advise people you take your own items as it is expensive. I did the bike hire on a really hot day and it was very tough with the heat the island does have alot of hills so if you are not very fit i would recommend you take the bus tour .
