What people are saying about Fremantle
Plenty of good things to see, to learn and too wonder over. Voice of Capt and speaker system could be louder , especially if sitting near the throb of the engine det. . More speakers and bigger volume is my suggestion. Lunch was great and the crew were chirpy . Bus or trolley tour of Freo could have been longer and more stops . I would judge twice as long to cover all the points of interest and the incredible sights . Not being from WA , could you put a Peir 3 sign in big letters for booking in area pre cruise . Luckily one staff member asked me if I was lost and I was . So some bigger and strategic signage in amongst all the other several signs there now.
Booking online was easy but GYG didn’t respond to my pick up request so i called Rottnest Express who suggested parking at Fremantle C Shed for $10 for all day which worked out well. The ferry was fine, the bikes were all quite old but it was great fun going round the island all day. Plenty to see and do. All in all a great day out and well worth it.
Only down side of the booking was that they forgot to pick us up at our hotel. They also didn't send us the Qrafter code for our return ferry ride. However, after running the streets of Perth down to the jetty, we made it just in time, and they let us on the return trip too. So those staff were friendly, even though the Office stuffed things up.
Overall it was a worth while doing trip, however it would be good to have more options of returning earlier as on an overcast cool day last few hours were wasted on the island. Also boat ride can get very bumpy for those suffering from the sea motion sickness. Buffet lunch was very basic and had very limited choices.
This was an amazing experience with great views and knowledgeable descriptions from the captain of the sights we were seeing. We were very impressed with how clean the facilities were and also how friendly and approachable the staff were on board. We will definitely tour again if we visit Perth again. A+
