The tour was long (4 hours from wave rock back). Sue our driver n guide was informative and courteous and she drove from 730am till 9pm The wave rock is definitely the highlight n a true wonder. Lunch was gd at the wave rock resort. Probably can skip the dog cemetery n the cave to save an hour off the long trip. York town was cute. So glad it was the giant seat with comfy leather chairs ... otherwise will be hell with so much driving. Highly recommended

Well-organized tour, the only negative - a huge number of flies on arrival, you need to take a net with you. And of course it takes a very long time to go, but it's worth it.

Steve is a very nice man that full of local knowledge, although the drive is long, we got enough stopping station. Also bus has usb hub for charging.

I enjoyed the variety of the excursion, getting to see Wave Rock, Hippo's Yawn and the historic town of York.

The drivers were very good and knowledgeable. Food was horrible.
