    Very informative tour, good for people on their own who wouldn’t feel comfortable riding around on bikes all day. I’m only 22 and it was not really a backpacker style trip, there were more older people on the trip which was fine for me - but maybe not for other young people. Maybe because there aren’t as many backpackers in WA? Nevertheless, it was a good trip to get to see the whole island quickly instead of wandering around and getting lost on your own. The guide was very thorough and lovely. Lunch was a chicken wrap and a biscuit which was nice and satisfactory. Take some snacks or a picnic over with you if you wish for the way. Few photo opportunities which was lovely. The Oliver hill train and gun tunnel tour was interesting. Was also picked up to and from the jetty (I stayed at the YHA, so was picked up from hay and pier street)

    Got to meet quokka which was amazing. The tour was ok but I feel it needed more stops and chances to get off the bus to look at the bays not just drive past. The train wasn't working which was a shame but didn't ruin the day. The staff on the ferry were amazing especially Megan who was super friendly and caring

    Three of us enjoyed this package. Would thoroughly recommend this tour! Included was the ferry trip on the Quokka 1 (husband's request), bus tour around the island, a light, but very satisfactory lunch, a train trip around the island, all with the appropriate commentaries. A stop for Oliver Hill guns and tunnel tour was very informative and interesting. We had amazing weather and really enjoyed our day on this tour!
