Amazing tour! So, pleased we did it. Tour guide was great! Such great information - but not too much talking. Just perfect. Was able to enjoy the views etc and still receive the right amount of information. Driver was also great. Very friendly, welcoming and respectful.

Great day out. The pilot and guide took time to go over the H&S points re life jacket etc. They explained the sights we were looking at, and took time to stop the boat for photos etc. The guys were really good company and made the trip real fun. Would highly recommend.
