Overall rating

Very informative and given my hearing is not great, the driver/guide spoke clearly and loud enough without being excessive. Not a quick trip but well worth it. The food for dinner was excellent.

The driver and the guides were very good, very knowledgeable and made sure everyone was included. Very helpful with the wheelchair and they made sure no one was left behind

Really worth doing if you are staying in Fremantle - well organised, interesting guides. There is lots to do on the island and adventure boat is a great way to see it.

Excellent trip. Good evening food, good tea and very attentive and helpful guide/driver. We saw kangaroos and pinnacles. Even the super starry sky.

It was lots of fun and Rose was an amazing guide!!
