“Worth doing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Whether you are new to Perth or Kings Park, this tour is worthwhile. Just the right length of time with a knowledgeable guide. For the newcomer from overseas, it is worth bringing a map of WA with you or accessing one on your iPad during the tour as the guide discusses regions around WA you might not be familiar with.

“Insightful, educational and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

One of the best ways to experience Perth's Kings Park is to do the Indigenous Heritage Tour with Greg. His cultural and historical knowledge of the local area was unsurpassed, and his ability to tell the Dream Time story was priceless. I had a particular interest in learning how local flora was used as medicine and food and I found this facinating. Greg as a tour guide was fantastic, very friendly and very willing to answer questions. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and wished it went on for longer. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour, even if if its on a rainy day, it is really worth it!!

“Best way to see Kings Park Perth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

After having been to Kings Park last year on a visit which was just too short, I searched for a guided tour and felt that I struck gold, when I found the Indigenous heritage tour.
Greg has made the walking tour one of my favorite memories of Perth. He has an abundance of knowledge about the local history, the flora and fauna of the park. Time flew and I would have actually liked to walk yet longer and to hear yet more.
I am convinced that this walking tour is THE best way to see the Park.

“Educational and insightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I took my class of overseas English students on this tour in order to give them some insight into indigenous culture and we were not disappointed. Greg was an excellent guide who gave us a lot of information about many aspects of aboriginal culture including land use and tool making and it was pitched at a good level. His relating of the Dreamtime story was very moving. Definitely recommended.

“Informative and enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Greg is an excellent guide for this very informative and enjoyable Indigenous Heritage tour in Kings Park Perth. He has deep knowledge about plants and their uses, medicinal and for food, and hearing the Aboriginal history of the land and beliefs was fascinating. He is a very engaging speaker and talks very clearly so this would be an excellent tour for overseas visitors as well as locals. Highly recommended.
