Well organised, good tour of the Rottnest, bus driver was quite knowledgeable and entertaining, the only negative was didn’t stop enough times for photo opportunities. We had lunch at Isola, wow what view it felt like we were lunching on the isle of Capri. The Quokka’s didn’t disappoint either with plenty wondering around the island to try and get that smiley selfie. All in all a value for money great day.

Fantastic day the bus tour was a great way to see the island. Very friendly driver who was very knowledgeable about the history

The Sealink ferry was on time and the bus driver for the 1.5 hour bayseeker bus tour was very informative.

Friendly crew, even will take care of small details like sunscreen lotion!!

It was a worthwhile trip - I learned a lot about Rottnest Island.
