We enjoyed the day. The guide Audrey was knowledgeable and friendly. This is one of the shorter trips which does mean there is quite a short time at each stop. We took our own food and drink and found opportunities to buy food limited and busy. Nice Coffee shop & toilets at Dark Woods.

The day was made by Don and his stories about the various sights. It lifted a day tour to a never-to-be-forgotten experience! The tour was well organised. The instructions were clear. The bus was comfortable. Excellent experience overall

Definitely a great way to spend your day . Not only the final destination is worth the visit, but the landscape on the way there is very beautiful .

Wonderful driver Brian was entertaining and informative. Sang us a few songs. Made sure we were all comfortable.

Great tour. Our guide, Jackie was fun, knowledgeable, and personable.
