‘This was one of my best experiences in Australia. It started early in the morning and covered so many places along the coastline. Leon, our tour guide, was super friendly and informative, and gave us all the details and stories behind every place we went. This tour is a great way to see the 12 Apostles when you visit the land down under!’
