Our tour guide, Frank, was engaging, funny, and full of interesting facts which is always important, but particularly on this very long trip (roughly 13 and a half hours). the wave rock was saved for last and is the highlight of the trip.

Lovely tour, really well organized. Sean is a very knowledgeable guide, gives time at destinations and doesn't rush, so you have time to enjoy sites. Also a great cook! Had a great time. Recommend this tour!

Evan and Yoshi are very accomodating, having good timing saving time for the main site, Waverock and gave us plenty of time to explore as well

James was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. It’s a big day out but so worth it.

Comments and stories told by the guide were the best!
