Have just spent the morning with Graham on the Beach & Forest Eco Adventure. What a lovely day and no driving for us. He provided good commentary, answered our questions and was friendly and helpful. Scenery was amazing

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed the eco-tour. I booked the trip because it was top-rated on trip advisor and it didn't disappoint. Stunning scenery. Graeme was a relaxed, laid-back guide who was a mine of information. Sand dunes were great. Lunch was yummy. Totally rated this tour (it was far better than how it sounded on the website). Good for all ages.

I think the only thing we missed on the lunch was a glass of wine :o)

We are really glad you enjoyed the adventure with us - and will certainly look at reviewing our website because we want people to know before the tour how good it is (not after they drive through town:)

Grateful for the heads-up - thanks again for taking the time to respond and we look forward to seeing you back this way someday.

Many thanks

“The 'raisin d' etre' for visiting Pemberton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

My 4 day road trip around the s.w.west aust was to absorb the beautiful countryside, eat local delicacies and do something new and exciting. The Discovery tour was the latter without fail! I'd read numerous reviews and no one had said anything short of it being excellent. I agree ...the discovery tour, aided with ideal weather, was fantastic. Graham's easy going personality and super local knowledge makes him a top tour guide. Thanks Graham and Toni for a wonderful experience. I'll brag about it to all my friends!

“The absolute best thing we did in WA!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

I happened upon a very small brochure in Busselton advertising a 4WD adventure Eco tour, and even though I had no idea where Pemberton was at that point I decided that this was something I really wanted to do.
And it was the best decision ever.
I was travelling with my eldest & youngest children - 35 & 11 years old. We were the only clients for the afternoon tour so got to travel in the smaller 4WD and have Graeme all to ourselves.
He is such a great guide, obviously passionate & very knowledgeable about his ‘backyard’. We travelled through old karri forest, played in the river, enjoyed the beauty of the coast and dunes, had the pants scared off me by Graeme taking a sudden turn down over Big Bertha - which the kids thought was the best part of the whole trip - thanks Graeme for making their day complete!!
We all agreed that this was the best thing we got to experience during our exploration of the south western corner of WA.
The afternoon tea was delicious - Thanks Toni :-)
We will be shouting your praises from the rooftops - and hope to be back in the future.

Thank you Raewyn,
It has taken me some time to respond to your review - we really love hearing a response like yours and although it makes us feel a little uncomfortable knowing we were the best thing you did in WA (WOW thats BIG!!!!) it makes us proud to know we achieved that for you.
We are really excited about seeing you back down this way and are grateful you have taken time out to write us a stellar review.
Please stay in touch - and if for any reason you don't hear from us, please poke us :o)
Many thanks
Toni
