Tour/Activity

Wave Rock, York, Wildflowers and Aboriginal Cultural Tour from Perth

Perth, Australia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A worthy trip to the interior of WA. Although the mileage was high the trip was made all the more worthy by the knowledge of Botany shown by the driver, John, his enthusiasm was infectious and enlightening. The Wave was particularly impressive and I can recommend the ascent to the top for wonderful panoramic views.
The stop for "tea" was a welcome one and the ladies put on an excellent spread with tea poured from a very large pot! The lunch stop was "interesting" and food was appealing. The stop at York could perhaps have been little longer but I found the place magical from past times and met a resident named Milton. Not quite 5 stars but do not miss out on this one!

Tour/Activity

Margaret River, Caves, Wine and Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse Tour from Perth

Perth, Australia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Great tour but just to say when I confirmed in Perth I found out that the time in Bussleton was limited to 30 minutes which was disappointing as that did not give enough time for a walk of the jetty and the undersea adventure.

Perth and Fremantle Tour with Optional Swan River Cruise

Perth, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A good starting point for any tourist. Great driver in Chris who dry humour was pleasant accompaniment to the commentary. Time in Freemantle is better if you opt for the cruise back which is worthy in itself, fine views of river and riverside properties, it also gives you time to talk with other people. Visit the Quay Inn situated near the ferry terminal in the "Sheds". Places visited were then picked for further exploration on another day-Kings park certainly a must to spend another day at.

Small Bars of Perth Walking Tour

Perth, Australia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was for me a taster of Perth nightlife which is fast moving with small bars opening all over the city. I really enjoyed the company, mainly Perthians , which surprised me, as I expected more overseas tourist would be in the party. The bars chosen were in places perhaps you would not normally visit, both guides were great company and their narration was entertaining and interesting. Food was interesting and the "wine" flowed as much as you wanted. Highly recommended!
