Exceptional trip to an incredible place
Shirley_B, Sept 2023
The view of the Wave Rock is quite spectacular. Walking around was just like a dream. A marvellous site to visit. The guide was also instructive about the other places we visited.
Well worth it
GeoffreyMcDonnell, Sept 2023
A potentially long and boring day was made interesting by our guide- he showed us a 1 hour walk up on the rock and all overvit, very good indeed .
Great day
Donna_T, Sept 2023
A great (if long) day, scenic and interesting. Good stops to break up the long drive . Bus driver/tour guide Evan was engaging and informative, and got us there and back safely, thank you 😉
Sunarty_S, Sept 2023

Book this trip it is AMAZING!!
Lorraine_K, Sept 2023
Seeing this natural phenomenon! The whole trip was well organised. Our driver, Beck was amazing!!! She was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and took time to constantly check in on everyone. Stopping in York for morning tea, the bakery was fantastic, great prices and even better tasting goodies. Lunch was organised and tasty. We saw many different sights. So many wildflowers along the way. We highly recommend this tour, you can relax on the long drives and you see heaps and get the chance to stretch your legs lots. Our group had 3 generations in it and we all loved it!!!
Educational and relaxing journey with magnificent views
Perlita_A, Sept 2023
Listening to history commentary from the driver/guide on the way to the Wave Rock. The canola fields and green landscape on the way is magnificent. The Wave Rock is amazing..

I enjoyed the day. the whole travelling is not bored at all, the driver/guard shared a lot of information and I just enjoyed listening to them. The yellow canola fields is so beautiful! Lunch provided at Wave Rock Cafe.
Underwhelmed by the...
Philip_F, Aug 2023
Underwhelmed by the experience and way below the advertised details. Not helped by a very mediocre driver/ tour guide. Despite having a new bus which was excellent the acoustics were awful. Not because of the bus but he didn't know how to use the system. His voice continuously went from.too to not hearing him. Volume kept varying from couldn't hear him to too high. When alerted to this he simply shrugged his shoulders and didn’t do anything to improve. Said it was a problem with the new bus. We knew that it was his inability to use the microphone a pretty basic requirement for a tour guide that was the problem as did most others on the tour. The result was the information a tour guide would normally provide wasn't provided. This greatly reduced the experience, quality and enjoyment of the tour. We did another tour with the same company 2 days previously booked via Viator and the Driver Tour Guide on that tour was excellent. The result was a much more enjoyable and informative experience and tour. Given the cost we were very disappointed with the Driver Tour Guide. The tour, itself, unlike the one 2 days earlier was not worth the cost.
Big Payoff for a long drive
Chris_J, Aug 2023
Excellent commentary from our driver Stephen and a pleasant drive out to the rock. Pretty much the payoff is Wave Rock and the excellent views from the top. It's a long ride, so prepare to snooze on your trip back
I didn’t know that the...
Hisashi_O, Aug 2023
I didn’t know that the wave is just part of the massive rock. The view from top of the rock is amazing.

Milena_D, Aug 2023
Very nice tour. We had few stops to see strange looking rocks, Aboriginal arts and great wave rock - amazing place. Nice lunch in local restaurant.
Well worth the distance
Heather_S, Aug 2023
Spectacular view from the top of wave rock. Long day but picked up and dropped off as stated. Comfortable bus, thanks Glenn and Australian pinnacle tours
Very good experience
joris_T, July 2023
We really loved the tour, our guide Glenn (double n 😉) knew and told us a lot about WA, York, aboriginal culture, Wave rock and we really enjoyed our lunch where we also saw a small zoo. It was all worth the long bustour.
The Wave Rock is well worth it.
AlexanderOwen_M, July 2023
It's a long day but from your hotel pickup to your 8:30 - 9:00pm return its a well paced tour. The driver/guide was funny and helpful. The wave was the star of the show and well worth the journey. Its impressive when right there in person. The meal at the Wave was an odd occasion in an odd place but with limited to no other options in such a remote place it's understable.
Good tour
Joshua_B, July 2023
Guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of interesting insight. Wave Rock is definitely worth the drive. Extremely unique and beautiful place.
Our day tour
