Well organised - the driver/guide was superb. However one rushed hour at the War Memorial Museum was not really enough.
Guides are very friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoy the trip and gain a lot knowledge pertaining to Canberra.
This was the day it rained in Sydney - but we were in Canberra, where the weather was clear. If you have any interest in war museums, allow yourself as much time as possible in the one here. The entry level is for WWI and WWII. The lower floor covers every war and armed conflict Australia has been involved in, from the Boer War to the present day. The museum is incredible - so much to see, so many outstanding displays. From the museum we went to the National Gallery of Art, and then to Parliament, where we sat in on sessions of both House of Representatives and Senate, followed by a drive thru the embassy section. I also have to say that we had one of the world's great bus drivers, Ralph with AATKings. Excellent driver, very knowledgeable and friendly. We stopped in Berrima for a breakfast break excellent food and at Trappers Bakery in Goulburn for dinner - a famous place with very good food. They stayed open for us, as we got there about the time they normally close. I highly recommend this tour as a way to see the capital of the country. The only reason I could see for actually staying in Canberra is if you have to be there for Parliament, or if you want more time for the war museum. It's not a town for tourists. But it's definitely worth a visit.
it was very interesting, the bus was comfy, driver and guide very nice.
Long day but pretty scenery and nice tour of Canberra especially being able to visit th Parliament. You can't do that in the US
This was a great day out - the guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information. The time at the War Memorial was too short though - recommend skipping the short trip to the Art Museum and just spending more time at the War Memorial. Overall a really nice trip.
Really enjoyed our trip to Canberra, visiting the Museum, the House of Parliament and Senate, etc. Our tour guide was absolutely excellent. We were so pleased that we had decided to do this tour.
02 tour guildes, especially Mrs. Barbara are very informative and helpful.
The tour was informative, interesting, and amazing! Julian, our driver, was very informative. driving was very good too and good time management. Barbara, our guide was very knowledgeable, passionate and informative. She definitely knows Canberra very well. i would highly recommend this tour!!
Stuart was firstly a very careful and good driver. He had a good script and an engaging style. Full marks.
The guides were good and worked hard to give us a full experience.
I forgot my glasses on the coach. They were found and I collected them without a problem.
Very informative. National art gallery has incredible pieces - Monet, Picasso, Jackson Pollack, and aboriginal artists. Loved it!
Fantastic trip the driver was informative and showed great attention to detail. Spoke to all on board bus with respect. Guides in Canberra were just so informative and knowledgable it made the tours easy. The war memorial is very emotional and parliament house is beautiful. Stunning views everywhere
its a long bus ride to Canberra from Sydney but our driver made it very enjoyable and interesting, well done Jules. The tour of Memorial was great but need more time to appreciate it. Enjoyed Parliament house tour and guides were very informative. Gallery was same as other galleries wonderiul pieces of art and some that looked like a 3 yr old did it.
The tour guide was wonderful. Canberra had so much to offter than I was expecting. The capital was just beautiful. The tour guides did a great job of explaining Australia's coming to story. This was a really sobering tour and I just loved it!
This was by far a fantastic trip. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to take in breathtaking views. This tour included the War Memorial which is the best I've ever seen, the Canberra Art Museum, and of course ACT Parliament House.
This trip was a memorable one. The guide was a very nice person, very profesional and very helpfull. I can not forget the Memorial .
It was a nice experience. The driver/tour guide was very friendly and accommodating. Although me and my friend were always late returning on the bus after each tour, he was still smiling and asking us if we enjoy it. The tour guide in the three places we visited was good too coz he knows a lot about the places. We really enjoyed the trip.
Tour guide is very informative and friendly. Highly recommended to go on this tour as you will see all the major tourist attractions and lots of time to take some pictures and shop for souvenirs. Many thanks to VIATOR. This my second time with them, the first one was in Singapore and it was spectacular.

How can one not pay a visit to the ACT Caught a parliamentary sitting, great! Could have done without the rain, though.
I have been to Canberra before, but it was awhile back when I was in primary school. My boyfriend and I decided that since we were holidaying in Sydney, to take a visit to Canberra. It was his first trip to Australia, so it made sense to take him to our nation's capital. He loved it! I loved it! The tour group was great. Everyone was from all over the world! The tour guide/bus driver was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and friendly, and did a great job coordinating everything. This was definitely a worthwhile tour!
