My tour was with Bill. He did a great job driving and giving some detailed information about the road and all the places we visited during the trip. Thank you for that! As to be expected on such a long-way trip, we had to rush a little from spot to spot. But it was definitely worth it! I would highly recommend this tour to anybody who doesn't have a car to go on their own and who wants to catch up on some historical information about this part of Australia. Would definitely do it again!

Great day, bad weather

I chose this tour in particular because of the sunset at 12 Apostles and the number of places we get to see. The tour guide Peter was excellent and very informative, taking us to many great lookout places and other stops alomg the way. The only downfall was the weather - overcast and a fair bit of rain. Nothing negative I could say about the tour itself. Ps, be prepared for very strong winds at some of the lookout spots i.e. consider bringing windbreaker jacket
