A great day out wasn't tiring like some tours. The driver/tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Felt safe in the bus. The main staple in the good stops were pastries, pies, and sausage rolls, probably because of the time of the year it was bust.

Our guide was Daniel, it was a lovely experience and he was very knowledgeable and funny, keeping the trip light and enjoyable! He brought us down to all the viewing spots and showed us the wildlife as well as keeping the schedule suited to our group's preferences! Daniel definitely made our trip more memorable and it will be something we will look back on for a long time :)

The tour was very nice, beautiful views, cool tour guide, worth going. I just wished for some more hiking and it was more of a drive around but other than that everything was really nice
