The guide was amazing, the day was amazing so well worth the money!! I would have happily been picked up a bit earlier to allow time for a bevvy at the pub, but otherwise brilliant day. Skip the bakery though pies tasteless. Pinnacles brilliant, stars out of this world and guide knowledge equal to that. Thanks so much for the experience.

Simply amazing. If you are only doing 1 tour from Perth, this is a MUST. Gavin was brilliant, everything was well planned. Nice salads made by the Mrs was definitely a plus. The Pinnacle, the stars, it was spectacular. We had such a great time, will recommend this to anyone.

Pick up and drop off was an unexpected bonus. Loved the Pinnacles, beautiful spot in WA. Great guide, friendly and knowledgeable.

Big day out! Gavin was fantastic. Pinnacles and star gazing was magnificent, we’re so lucky to have such a clear night!

A long day however the Pinnacle Desert experience and star gazing is amazing.
