Unbelievable Tour

Our experience with Jim yesterday was more than a 5 star experience. He went above and beyond his duty as a tour guide. During a bad weather experience due to cyclone we still enjoyed ourselves. Just like to add the hospitality of the Millanda pub was much appreciated. We so enjoyed our tour.

Good but needs improvements

The waterfalls and places we went were amazing, definitely the perfect tour if you want to sit back and be driven to all the awesome spots! However, the microphone on the bus didn’t work (crackled for the first half of the tour and then completely stopped working for the second half), so it was difficult to hear our guide. Secondly, the tour states “morning tea provided”. This should be clarified to just “tea and coffee” as most people on the bus assumed “morning tea” would include food (even biscuits or something), but nothing was provided and hence everyone was hungry and not happy that we didn’t eat until almost 2pm (delays with the pub when we got there too). And finally, the guide said he would take photos all day for the tour as he had a waterproof camera, but only a couple were taken initially and then the camera wasn’t used. Overall, it was a little disappointing but the guide was enthusiastic and the places we visited were great.
