G'day Ai Lin Thanks for letting us know you had an excellent day trip to Canberra. Cheers
Thank you for sharing your thoughts (and photos) of your recent day trip to Canberra. It's great to hear you enjoyed the day, and we do apologize for any inconvenience caused by our driver using his phone on the journey. We have very strict rules regarding this, not to mention actual laws now in place in Australia, and we will be speaking to the guide in question to ensure this does not happen again. Cheers
G'day Anna We're sorry to hear you were disappointed in your recent day trip to Canberra. Allow me to address some of the negative comments you have made here. You are correct that the tour description says you will receive free time in either the National Art Gallery or the National Museum. groups do in fact receive free time in EITHER of these venues, not BOTH. Depending on the interests of the group on the day, time spent in traffic traveling, and whether or not the venues have availability due to private functions etc, the guide on the day makes the decision as to which venue it will be. It's good to hear Tom was able to fit in both due to your request on the day. All of our guides are across all aspects of Australian history and culture, and we do not expect them to experts on any given topic, so we can understand your disappointment in not receiving the in-depth information on Australian politics that were hoping for. With regards to his perfume, we do ask that our guides are conscious about their own body odor, and driving large buses in the Australian Summer can be a very demanding job. Perhaps Tom applied a little too much on the day, but we can assure you, it was not a deliberate attempt to cause any individuals discomfort on the day. You are also correct in that our tour is designed to showcase the highlights of Canberra in a single day, for those who may only have 1 day to do so. We do recommend people who want a more in-depth look at the city, to stay for a few days, and it sounds like this would have been your ideal situation, but for whatever reason, you chose to do it in 1 day. We hope you are able to return to Canberra on your own, and spend more time there.
G'day Rose Thanks for the 5 stars, and for letting us know how much you enjoyed your day trip to Canberra. Yes, it a long drive, but it sounds like it was worth it, so that's great to hear. Cheers
