Simply amazing. If you are only doing 1 tour from Perth, this is a MUST. Gavin was brilliant, everything was well planned. Nice salads made by the Mrs was definitely a plus. The Pinnacle, the stars, it was spectacular. We had such a great time, will recommend this to anyone.

The guide was amazing, the day was amazing so well worth the money!! I would have happily been picked up a bit earlier to allow time for a bevvy at the pub, but otherwise brilliant day. Skip the bakery though pies tasteless. Pinnacles brilliant, stars out of this world and guide knowledge equal to that. Thanks so much for the experience.

The time was very limited, and the tour was very quick and I was very satisfied. Although the weather was a little bad when I was sightseeing Pinnacles, I couldn't see the starry sky, but on the way home, the driver took time at a sunny timing, and I was very happy to see the starry sky full of safety.
