I only had 2 1/2 days in Perth and wanted to do something interesting. Rottnest looked a little generic and I found this tour recommended by a local blog. It turned out to be a great idea. I got to see a lot more of Western Australia and learned a lot about its geological and colonial history. Plus, everyone was jealous of the my pics feeding the kangaroos. The dunes were fun and the Pinnacles are really unique (I’d recommend getting a fly net from the gift shop before you start walking around). The guide was a really nice guy and even lent me a charging cord for my phone. He also had recommendations for food and a very cool record store after the tour was over (shout out to Dada Records). Highly recommend as a way to see a lot of WA in a day.

Beyond what we were expecting! Just amazing! From the drive to the great activities, the day flew by too fast! Gavin was just a wonderful guide! Amazing how much he did all by himself! The set up for dinner and stargazing in the pinnacle desert was unforgettable! Would definitely recommend this activity! Thank you for an unforgettable experience!

The excursion was fantastic! although the weather wasn't the best, Hadriel and Neil were able to make us experience unforgettable moments. The slides on the dunes of Lancelin were excellent (perhaps the sandboarding boards should be changed), the explanations given regarding the Desert and the dinner under the stars. Thank you!

It was amazing, Skip was very nice to us, very helpful and funny. Also, Gavin was super nice too and very friendly. We really loved this trip ! It was a fun day and super peaceful.
