“Though this tour serves more as a transport medium, but it is a speciality of small group tour that a good guide can enlighten the experience. I would give this tour a five star rating.”

Courteous and efficient day out.
“Khalid was a good guide, providing useful tips and info throughout the trip. Ballarat is an under appreciated attraction for those visiting Melbourne. Definitely worthwhile.”
