Was looking forward to this trip and it exceed my expectations. Our driver/tour guide Chris was so knowledgeable that it made a huge difference! He was talking on the micro during the while trip. Wave Rock is truly a special and unique place. We had plently of time to visit, taking pics and even wonder around on top of the rock. It is a long day, many hours on the bus, but so worthy. We also visited York and enjoyed a nice and tasty meal at Wave Rock Cafe, where there were kangaroos and other Australian wildlife. Absolutely recommend this trip and visit Wave Rock!

Amazing trip. Loved Wave Rock. But also lived the Lace Museum, the Toy Soldiers and animal park. First stop was York. Lovely and could have spent a day there exploring. Our guide was amazing full of information about the local wildflowers as well as the geography and history of the areas we travelled through. Excellent trip, highly recommend this.

A long day but well worth it. Wave rock is awesome but the drive there was also cool seeing the countryside. Excellent driver and comfortable transport. Couple of stops there and back to off the beaten tracks town's.
