We chose this type of trip so we would have a more comfortable and personal experience. Booking was easy and there was a great communication. The tour was really varied. One moment it was the scenery that was turning our heads, next it was the wildlife. The itinerary was very well thought out with lots of breaks. Highly recommend this company and this tour.

We are just back after spending the day along the ocean road ...picked up on time from our hotel with a lovely greeting from our guide for the day. We had a safe and comfortable car. We thought it was going to be a long day but didn't feel like it! Our guide was informative, witty sharing many personal opinions of life in Australia and together we tried to put the world to right !!! We learnt the history of the ocean road and saw wildlife and enjoyed the fantastic views.
