Spent a fantastic day with Chip on the Outback Tour. It was just my sister and I taking the tour, so we had our own personal tour guide, photographer and chauffeaur. We met up with Chip, who is a 3rd generation islander and knows just about anything you could imagine about the island. He drove us all around the island, giving us history and fun facts, stopping for photo opps and buffalo spottings. We picked up lunch at the airport, spotted more buffalo and headed to Little Harbor, The Harbor is absolutely gorgeous! We chose not to kayak because it was so cold, but I'm sure more adventurious people would have jumped at the chance. They brought wet suits for us and everything. We rode around the island and stopped to see various wildlife and enjoyed some of Chips stories about growing up on the island and "fun facts" that only a native could know. We went to Twin Harbour and had an awesome sandwhich lunch with yummy homemade cookies. The island is just beautiful and you really to get to see so much more than just staying in Avalon. We loved the flexibilty and friendliness of Chip. He is truly a "salt of the earth" kind of guy, with no cell phone or computer. He dosent even know what trip advisor is!
Ive traveled to many places and paid for many tours, but this had to be one of my absolute favorites! It felt like a custom made tour and Chip aims to please. I highly recommend this tour if you want a personal touch and a wonderful experience! I saw a similiar experience advertised for $700+. I think we paid $140/each for a full day with lunch and the option to kayak, all equipment provided. Be sure to bring your camera, towel, and good shoes for hiking!
