As a way of experiencing the best of Australia's south west corner, the 4 day tour could hardly be bettered. We saw all the featured sights and some less well known but beautiful ones. Our driver was first rate, experienced and very personable accommodation and meals were very good. I'd strongly recommend the 4 day tour over shorter alternatives if your plans allow it.
This was our first experience of SW Australia. Mixture of work and pleasure we found we had 4 days to explore the more southern reaches. Whilst we had down a little internet exploration and came across some of the 'things to see and do' we found that the 4 day tour took in most of what we wanted.
Sit back and relax. Comfortable coach - with leg room! I don't think we would have had such a relaxing time if we had hired a car. Keith, our driver was an excellent host. The beauty was that with such a packed itinerary we went from place to place - with time to enjoy.
We sampled the various hotels which I have to say were very goo. Food was well recommended by Keith.
The history of the South West is fascinating but the earlier settlers would certainly have had a hard time.
The trip was only part of the experience - getting to know fellow travellers added flavour to the whole experience of our first ever 'bus holiday' - I hope we will have the chance to come back having had an insight of what there is to see and do - a lot.

A great tour, the river cruise visit at Walpole was a standout and Gary will not be easily forgotten. A real character and good entertainment despite the rain. Coach was comfortable and accommodation was good, specially the Abbey Beach resort. Food was excellent throughout the tour. Plenty of wine tasted and chocolate eaten. Tour guide/driver was outstanding.
Great tour, great accomodation, great food, what more can you ask for? The nights in Karri valley and Busselton were amazing. Grant our guide was fantastic. Highly recommended. Thanks also to Mr Muir in Walpole, most passionate guide ever!!!!!!!
