an excellent tour ,knowledgable driver and local guide for the war museum and the parliament building this is not to be missed. Also included a visit to the museum to view aboriginal art
High point was visiting a Parliament session and hearing debate on the eagerly awaited Oprah visit. Long bus trip was tiring but visit was very worthwhile
I enjoyed the trip but would have definitely liked more time at the war memorial. Due to the driver getting lost, we did not have the time there we should have had, and that was the place that interested me most.
This tour is interesting.
I really liked the fact it combines commentaries from both the driver and the local guide. Both are very pleasant to talk to and deal with, and definitely very knowledgeable. You can different perspectives of both the city and history.
Would have prefer the tour to included the meal or the morning tea it its pricing, but otherwise, no complaints.
Driver was great but the tour was too rushed. Probably too much driving and a lot to squeeze in . Better to overnight in Canberra .
I was disappointed to be told that I could not be picked up at my hotel only to find that another guest staying at the Wentworth was .... the trip itself was good but not enough time to explore as much as i had hoped
Happy with bus driver but the tour guide, could have been a little less patronizing. The information at each exhibit could have been a little more condensed so that we could see more things. We felt very rushed, even at lunch. The food was good at the lunch stop but restaurant was slow and we weren't given a lot of time to eat.
It was a nice trip however; we were behind from the start due to traffic. With this we were not given the time to eat once we got to Canberra. We should have spent more time at the Australian War Memorial as opposed to the Parliament House or National Museum. With our tour being late there was far too much rushing around. We did have to skip Mount Ainslie in order to save time. I would switch the cities around that we stopped at and make our first stop the city we rested in on the way back. There was a Subway Restaurant and a couple of other eateries where we could have picked something up in the morning since we were not able to eat in Canberra. Overall I enjoyed the trip but I would not do this itinerary again as is.
We were hoping that you would cover the miniature village which we have heard a lot about.
