I went on this bus tour and found it lacking in its commentary. Half the time the buildings that were mentioned were either just behind us as we passed or level with us, so there was no time to actually see the building. The commentary...More

Thank you for your review. We get many good reports about the commentary on board as you can see from other reviews on this page, it is often described as informative and fun. We talk pretty much non stop around Kings Park discussing its history,...More

Thank you for you review, I will happily pass your comments on to Greg, he certainly is a great credit to our business and a very popular driver. However, his jokes are terrible, don't encourage him!

Hi there sorry for the delay in not getting back to you earlier I think it would take about 1-1 1/2 hours if you didn't get off

Hi.. The tour runs all around the city of Perth. Stop 1 is at Barrack St Jetty down on the rivers edge. We have 11 different stops around the city but a lot depends on how you are getting into Perth from Guildford?
