“A bus trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

what a great day out. our tour guide was superb and her local knowledge was amazing. she shared with passion her love of the country side and its amazing sights, from the beach out to the mountains.
then the gannets where right there in the many stages for us to watch and be amazed by. WOW!!! it was great value for money and provided a very special 3 hours, which was suitable for any ages, and was managable for any one with a disability, or limited mobility that would not be able to manage the beach trip.
thanks you for a special day.

“great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

first, we thought, that this trip by tractor would be a little bit pumpy with too many people. But then, we realized, that it was well worth the money and the many people did not disturb at all. our guide was a real entertainer with good informations. Thanks

This course was recommended to us by a friend who is a very good golfer. We see why it is so highly regarded. Really a special place and great staff.

“Long Walk But Worth It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

My partner and I decided to walk to Cape Kidnappers - I would highly recommend taking the little tractors that go across. Although the walk was beautiful it took about 5 hours to get there and back. Once there, the Gannets were really cool, there were so many and they were quite amazing.
