We went as a family with a 21, 17 and 7 year old on a wet, windy day (full day to Bustard Head lighthouse, 7/1/17) and still had a trip that everyone loved. If you don't enjoy it, it will not be because of the company that runs the tour. Very well organised; genuinely friendly, engaged and knowledgeable guides. Excellent... More
