An excellent tour with an excellent guide who made the day even more enjoyable with his local knowledge. The coach was very comfortable and the picnic lunch was held in a lovely spot. The whale watching part of the trip was amazing - seeing those wonderful creatures so close (one came by the back of the boat for his own bit of sight seeing! I would quite easily recommend this tour to anyone wishing to see the beautiful scenery of a large part of the area between Sydney and Jervis Bay and also spot a few whales into the bargain. Thanks again for a wonderful day.
