I really enjoyed the tour, Brianna was knowledgeable, fun and an excellent driver. The accommodation on the tour varies, some places are more modern, however this didn’t matter too much as you spend very little time in the hostels. There is obviously lots of driving involved, but there are frequent stops at view points, beaches and service stations. It does break it up. By far the best part of the trip was swimming with the whale sharks additional cost, but totally worth it. There are a number of optional activities available at an extra cost, should you wish. I would recommend if you do the whale shark day, you do not book the coral bay snorkeling, as the first stop on the whale shark tour is coral snorkelling. The meals were varied on the evenings, it is expected that everyone helps out with cooking etc. so if you are not into that, maybe this isn’t the tour for you. This is a great option for solo travellers who want to see WA without having to hire a van themselves.

What an unforgettable adventure! As a female solo traveler, I'm always mindful of my surroundings, but thanks to Geoff, our tour guide, and the wonderful group dynamics, I felt safe and at ease throughout the journey. The itinerary was packed with thrilling experiences, stunning scenery, and unforgettable wildlife encounters. These memories will forever hold a special place in my heart, and I wholeheartedly recommend Autopia's services to anyone looking to explore this incredible part of the world. Thank you, Geoff, for creating such a memorable trip!

Tour was fantastic, but you should really think about put on extra guide, because they are working to hard. Big cheers for Dani, who did a fantastic work and worked 18 hours a day, but that’s not fair to put him in that position.

An unbelievably great trip! Hundreds of kilometers, but the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets, beaches and wildlife. Sensational guide and great group.

Absolutely fantastic! Our guide is so knowledgeable and informative, local owned and run ,a fun day out no matter what your age.
