The tour was very good as it had a mix of diverse sightseeing spots and things to do. First was the Geelong beach which was a beautiful spot for photos. Then the wildlife park was delightful. Following which was the lighthouse spot, which gave a scenic view. The ferry ride with lunch on board was fulfilling. The most interesting part was the farm visit and listening to how strawberries and blueberries were grown, nurtured, picked and sold. All in all a great package.
