Vipul_K, Nov 2022
The tour was really nice. If you want to explore Canberra and you are new here, this is the best thing you can do. The tour conductor was explaining everything while visiting. We had enough time to visit every points.

This tour was very nice and made for a long day, we were in a comfortable bus with a small group, the sites we visited were beautiful and the tour guide was nice and knowledgeable. The driver was accommodating and instead of leaving me in central station due to Vivid Sydney , he was able to drop me off very close to my hotel and this was great after a long day.

The trip content was very good however our guide was not as informative as most we have worked with and he was heard to hear. Also the bus was very cold. We could have used more time at the war memorial museum (45 min. was not nearly enough).

This was a great tour. It was a very long day, but worth it. We happen to be at the War Memorial during a special ceremony which was amazing. I highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to know how the Australian Government works.
