Just got back from a City Sights tour in a very comfortable coach, with a driver who had excellent knowledge of the city of Broken Hill. Well worth the money. Had a very interesting tour.

Great way to get a look at this mining city. The guide was interesting and there was a lot to see in and around the Broken Hill area. Well worth the money for this three hour tour.
