Lots of time travelling. Sand boarding was fun. Walking among the Pinnacles, witnessing a glorious sun set over the Indian Ocean and enjoying a simple BBQ in the desert were the highlights. The stargazing was a damp squib due to cloud cover. The short bush walk at Hangover Bay was a bit random. Value difficult to determine but if two or more are thinking of visiting the Pinnacles, car hire and sharing the driving may be better value. Take/wear insect repellent as the flies are a menace.

Prefer if the transport vehicle was a little more spacious as the four seats (in a row) at the back of the mini bus had no shoulder or elbow room! Very uncomfortable when you have to sit with your shoulders turned inwards for two and a half hours without getting off the mini bus. Otherwise, the trip was good, the star gazing at night was a fantastic experience. Very helpful guides. Highly recommended with Lumineer tours.

I was able to see a lot of wonderful scenery. You can spend a relaxing time chatting with people from various countries and regions. It was a small bus move to move the sandy beach! There is no luggage storage area. It is best to keep your hand luggage to a minimum. In addition to Pinnacles, you can stop at other places to see the sights, but I enjoyed boarding on the pure white sand dunes and strolling around the sea while waiting for the evening. The Pinnacles at dusk was really nice, and I was able to eat wine and a buffet style meal while watching the sunset. It was very delicious. When the sun went down, I was able to see the sky full of stars in the wide sky. The guide explained each step carefully, which was very good. It was quite cold at night, and there was a blanket rental, but I thought it would be nice to bring down. It was a lovely tour!
