Client Reviews

  • "A Shore Excursion worth doing!"
    We had pre-booked this shore excursion before we left Australia, along with some other tours, they were all great and half the price we would have paid for if we had booked on the ships excursions! This one in particular was well worth doing. There were only eleven of us on the tour and we got to see absolutely everything in the area with great commentary by a very friendly and knowledgeable driver. Just a great tour.
