Ben is an amazingly knowledgeable, friendly and accomodating tour guide. He made us feel super comfortable and safe with his 100/10 driving skills & banter. Last but not least he takes you to the most breath taking views & also happens to be a photographer 1000/10. Thank you so for having us Ben. We will continue to sing your praises mate. Don’t come to Port Lincoln without booking this tour.

We were an older group than I had expected for a swag camping tour...and that was a wonderful plus. The tour covered amazing natural areas. Our guide /driver/cook was up to all challenges: his local knowledge added so much, and his thoughtful forward planning to cater for a very diverse range of dietary requirements meant that we always ate fresh ingredients imaginatively used.

Extremely knowledgeable guide. Excellent customer service right through from booking to some great photos taken and supplied free of charge. Enjoyed each and every minute.

Enjoyable afternoon activity. Boat was clean, great lunch. Captain was very knowledgeable with great commentary along the way.

Comprehensive mix of natural environment, history, food and wine.
