The Grand Tour of the Island was great, very informative. All the guides we had on the day were friendly & very knowledgeable of the history. Gorgeous Island with beautiful coves & beachs.

Excellent to see Rottnest Island highlights
Brenda_B, Mar 2023
Great way to see the highlights on Rottnest Island and take photos with a few quokkas whilst there. Quite a lot to see so didn't manage to have a dip in the water but looking forward to another trip to do just that next time.
Suzanne_R, Feb 2023
There was only 1 opportunity to get off the bus to take photo's which was not long enough. We were expected to take 99% of our photo's through the dirty bus windows. They checked our lunch order when getting on the bus & still got it very wrong. They failed to mention the amount of stairs at the gun tour which was not suitable for 1 family member. Apparently the tour guides tell you when you arrive & the company has not listened to them about advertising it. They need more photo's on their advertising about this and give more off bus photo opportunities.

Good overview. Guides gave very comprehensive tour of island. Need meet and greet person when arriving on island . Somewhat confusing as to need for actual ticket as bus driver has all names therefore ticket not relevant
A bit boring
Nick_R, Jan 2023
Great views of all the beaches but you don't get to stop at any. Better to take a hop on hop off bus. The train ride is boring and not much to see
Great overview of Rotto!
Irene_E, Jan 2023
This is a great tour for an overview of the island. It was a bit confusing finding the tour bus, but after asking helpful Island staff, we found it. The bus tour was great as our guide drove us around the entire island. Some beautiful views! The train ride up to Oliver Battery was beautiful. Oliver Battery was very cool! The Gun & Tunnels tour was fascinating & the volunteer guides were fabulous.
My experience
Kwok_C, Dec 2022
The bus ride and train ride that include Oliver hill tour was great. There isn’t any sign board to indicate where to wait for the tour bus after we arrived at the island. Would be good to have some clear signage that guide new visitors to the island and joining the tour.
Overview only

Overview of a beautiful and historic island. However if you want to spend any time snorkeling or actually spending any time at any of the bays, stay overnight. The bus barely stops…the bus tour should be at least a 1/2 hour long so there is time to stop.
Beautiful Waters
Bonnie_D, Dec 2022
This is one of the most beautiful islands I've seen. I really enjoyed the complete tour of the island, including the train ride to see the WWII gun structures and tunnels. I will tell my biking friends that they should spend a week on Rottnest. Of course, seeing the sweet quokkas was a high light.
The quokkas are super...
HweeLing_O, Nov 2022
The quokkas are super cute, beautiful scenery and highlights of the island and oliver hill tour is a good one. But will be good if we can alight one more stop at seal viewing platform or pinky beach
Poor lead-up information
Gabrielle_J, Oct 2021
The tour was great but the information about where to go and what to do beforehand left us a bit lost initially.
A beautiful day in Rotto.
Nina, Mar 2020
The ferry was on time Getting to the wharf on the free bus was easy.There was plenty of comfortable seating. Getting to the bus was more difficult as there were no street signs. Once aboard the driver was knowledgable and gave time for photos. The train ride was great enabling passengers to see other areas of the island and the war tunnels and gun sights. The lunch was good but the biscuits were loose in a large paper bag. Not so good. There was more walking than I thought. Saw a quokka as I went to the return ferry.
A good overview of Rottnest when you only have a day.
Roslyn_C, Feb 2020
Friendly tour guides, interesting details provided. A convenient way to see a lot of the island, especially during a record-breaking heatwave. Would have liked a bit more information pre-departure to make clear the instructions of where to go and what would happen at each stage, as well as a short summary of what we would be seeing. However, we went with the flow and had a great day. Quokkas really are very cute.
Great visit to Rottnest island!
Tan_H, Dec 2019
Had a really well rounded visit on the Grand Island Tour of Rotto! Visited the main observatory points and got the blessing of really low tides, great weather where the Sea Lions came to busk in the Sun. Guides were fantastic and we enjoyed a very passionate tour by Volunteer Guide at Oliver Hill Gun Battery. We were amazed and decided to push back our ferry time, rented bicycles to visit the lovely clear beaches; and see more quokkas :) Unfortunately the Captain Hussey Train still wasn't ready on 1 Dec but all's good!
