    We had a great afternoon, we certainly saw things in Rottnest we would otherwise not have seen. Justin was a very informative guide who entertained us with his stories both factual and fiction.

    We were worried that we would not be able to ride the Segway but Jill our guide is an excellent instructor and made us feel very comfortable. The tour was very enjoyable and informative and at the end of it we were knowledgeable and felt like Segway experts.
