Good: Tour Guide Mr Claude. He really looks after everyone very well. Full of knowledge abt the valley. Bad: Tour finishes by 4 PM. It would be good if an extra hr or 2 can be added which can provide patrons free and easy time at one of the vineyards. Overall wonderful experience.

Our tour guide Chris was very knowledgeable about the area and wildflowers. We were given enough time to view the sights. The coach was comfortable. Journey time was long but that is understandable given how big WA is. Would recommend to others

Great trip .... Wave Rock is worth seeing, its bigger than I thought. Tour Guide / Driver was very knowledgeable and informative. Also ....the amazing huge fields of the yellow Canola Flowers, quite something to see.

Great time. Well organised and Keith the bus driver was lovely. Good Value

The van's new driver and guide were OK, but the Wi-Fi didn't work
