Great trip for me and wife. Commentary by guide was right on the spot and informative as we are new to WA and werr eagerly learning. Transportation was very comfortable with timed breaks and punctual pickuos and dropoffs. Food and drinks were as promised and decent in quantity and quality. Arrived on time and felt cared for genuinely by the friendly staff and professionalism of the crew. Warning though stops can be short. Will try Pinnacle again in future while we explore WA.

Great day trip! Stopped at a wonderful cafe on the way to Busselton Jetty where we did the tram ride. Views were amazing! Next was lunch which was at a cafe with great views. Scenic drive to margaret river and then some wine tasting. Our last stop was the national park which was so peaceful and pretty. Would definitely recommend. Hotel pick up and drop off included.

Long day but varied and interesting itinerary. One of the best cheese burgers ever at the Cheeky Monkey and the beer and wine tasting were good too. With the distances in WA stops must be short but Busselton Jetty, mammoth caves and seeing the oceans meet at Cape Leveque was worth it.

We had a Wonderful Day! Our Bus Driver was Extremely knowledgeable Professional and well experienced! The Lunch was delicious and all the sites we visited were amazing! Highly recommend this Day trip! Allow yourself for a full day. Well worth it!

Great meals and very knowledgeable guide about Western Australia.
