Well, everything was fine. They called me to ask for the address to pick me up. They arrived on time. He makes many stops to take photos. It's quite windy! Before going to the 12 apostles, he goes to pick up a pizza that has been ordered before. I didn't really like the taste of the ham more than anything. But it is edible.

The booking, the pick-up, the trip, despite heavy traffic, was good. Our guide Daniel T. made every effort to catch up with delays (traffic jams) and to respond to requests. He organized excellent dinners, pre-orders and when we came the food was ready for all participants. Unfortunately the weather was not good, but we still enjoyed the trip. Daniel T. gave us a lot of information about the area and the history.

Great day out. Paul, our guide, was great fun, he dealt with the traffic issues really well still ensuring we had a good day answered all that was promised. Although he did torture us with the koala song! It is a very long day as sunset is not until 9pm in mid summer, so don’t expect to get back to your hotel until we’ll after midnight.
