We had booked 2 weeks previous and told we would be picked up at the pier and taken to the prison. We were not met at the pier and forced to walk 3km with 7 young children with no water etc. Lois told us walk the distance to the rec reserve and she would pick us up from there. The rec reserve was 3km away!!!! She arrived ten mins later after the hour walk we endured, in a terrible falling apart bus that looks like the school bus from the simpsons! She took us to the general store which is overpriced and shady. She left us there and drove off to get another 10 people. When she finally came back, we were then taken on a scarry bus drive to her dingy farm. Potholes in the road and her speeding was worse than a rollercoaster! We were then told she does not do prison tours!! Her farm was disgusting and the animals were filthy dirty, smelly and the part you have tea in is a stinky falling apart shed!!!! We were then rushed back to the pier by her husband that smelled like urine and yet again another rollercoaster ride! We were not the only guests to want to catch the next ferry! FRENCH ISLAND is like a ghost town with drink drivers and no insurance and no LAWS!! SO BEWARE!!!! If anything goes wrong its too bad for you! There are unregisterted abandoned vehicles all over the place and people driving around with completely unroadworthy cars! It was like something from a horror movie!!
