This 7 day trip is amazing! It’s a modular trip, so we started with 24 people (a full bus load) and after 4 days, a few people left, then a few more left on the 5 day mark. However, I wanted to go all the way to Exmouth so I did the full 7 days and I wouldn’t have traded it for anything! The west coast of Australia is something else! Deserts, gorgeous beaches, awesome snorkelling, so much wildlife in their natural habitat and the perfect weather every single day! Our tour manager Carla made it even that much more fun with her cooky Kiwi ways and by giving us lots of historical information in regards to each place we stopped. The included activities were great - sand boarding in Lancelin, snorkelling the Ningaloo reef, hiking to Nature’s Window, hanging out with dolphins in Coral Bay, etc. Everything was awesome and I’d recommend this trip to anyone who wants to explore WA without having to worry about driving it themselves.
I really enjoyed this tour! We got to see so much in just one week, the tour truly makes the most of your time! It's a lot of early starts and moving around, but there's also a lot of driving so you can make up sleep during then. Best part was, becuase it was the off season, we were always practically the only people at each place, and it was so nice to see these things without all the tourist crowds. BEWARE OF ALL THE BUSH FLIES. No one warned us to buy a fly net and I wish they had! Bush flies during the trip were a huge pain. I gave it 4 stars for the food mainly. While the food was fresh, and it was a HUGE plus having 9/10 meals covered during the tour, the food was very simple (we had the same thing for lunch practically every day) and very limited. Being vegetarian or any kind of dietary restrictions, while they do try to accommodate you, is tough on this trip. Same falafel and wraps for lunch, and dinner is 1 meal for all (that everyone has to cook and prepare together). Often times a few of us ended up buying our own food for meals which was frustrating as we paid for these meals. The other reason was the accommodation. I can't complain too much because hotels and hostels are limited in WA, but many were VERY basic (no aircon, no wifi or cell service, rough sheets, 1 bathroom for 10 people, spiders in showers, etc.). So just be prepared for this ahead of time! That being said, it was definitely all worth it for how much you see! Pinnacles, Hutt Lagoon, Sand Dunes, Kalbarri National Park, Coral Bay, Turquoise Bay, Ningaloo Reef, etc. etc. We always made extra stops here and there to see every little bit of WA and wow is it beautiful! Carla our guide was experienced and knowledgeable, however a bit controlling of the group at times. For me, I would've preferred someone who gives a little more space for the group to do their own exploring. Was a little more concerned with meal prep and tardiness than with bug bites, sun screen, and hydrating. It's important to remember that while this isn't her first trip up WA, it was all of ours and we wanted to soak in everything on our own occasionally. This was just my perspective though. Otherwise, I still think this is one of the better tours offered given its price, duration, value for money, and itinerary! Would recommend this to a friend!!
Had the best 7 days on this tour! The scenery you see and activities you get to do and wildlife you see is impossible to describe in a way that does it all justice. You just have to go and see & experience it yourself! Abseiling, swimming with manta rays and snorkeling with the whalesharks were even more magical than I thought, definitely worth every dollar and more! I'd recommend to get the pro photos from the snorkeling tours, there is no way you get better ones yourself with a gopro :P Accommodation is in mixed share dorms, all hostels were clean and nice. There is an option to upgrade to a private room as well (if available so definitely prebook!) There was so much food and it was delicious, even as a vegan I was well fed throughout the tour ^^ Your guide/driver Carla is just the best person ever <3 So funny, caring and knowledgeable. I am still in touch with people from the tour, so you can really make good friends as well. This is a trip of a lifetime, so if you are thinking about it, just book it!
First of all I'm so glad I didn't self drive I wouldn't seen 1/2 the things we saw and probably slept in and missed the sunrises. The Western Australia is defiantly a place where you take a tour as most of the trip you don't have phone reception while on the road. All the guides for this company have 10+ years experience and the company has been around for over 30 years. I swam
So I have traveled all over Australia seen the most amazing things! But then I did this tour and I had the most amazing time the place you go are like no other! Swimming with whale-sharks, manta rays, watching humpbacks, turtles and so much more. All the accommodation is top notch. Now I come to the one individual that just needs one word to describe her legend (Carla) the best 🥝 ever!🤙🤙
Just finished an awesome week in WA. Our tour manger Carla was bloody amazing, the accommodations were all clean and comfortable. Monkey Mia was my favourite plus waking up to dolphins in the bay was perfect. One thing I would advise is to ask your agent or Autopia directly to book your excursions in advance as I was unable to book onto a dive with the whale sharks due to no availability.
The trip with our tourguide Carla was amazing! I totally fell in love with the beautiful west coast of Australia. Even if it was a long time sitting in the bus, we always had so much fun. Carla explained everything very well and gave us a lot of tips. I can highly recommend this tour if you want to travel in a small group and don’t have lots of time to explore the beautiful west coast of Australia.
Its hard not to fall in love with Western Australia after this 7 day tour!! This trip takes you to all the best destinations and sights WA has to offer, there are SO many incredible stops along the way its hard to just name a few! The white sandy beaches and turquoise waters have some of the most beautiful marine wildlife I have seen any where in the world! We had the opportunity to swim with manta rays, whale sharks, reef sharks, turtles and more! We went on plenty of walks including seeing the Pinnacles and Kalbarri National Park. The accommodation was varied and nice, everyone on the tour was so friendly! There was a range of different nationality's and ages on board and the tour definitely had something for everyone. 10/10!
This was my birthday present to me and I was able to tick so many things off my bucket list. The bus is a bit older, with some seats having seen better times, but it wasn't full, so people could choose where to sit. The tour guide Steve was a knowledgable guy, who was also easy going and fun to talk to. We started in Perth and first stop were Pinnacles. Arrived in Kalbarri in the evening, Hostel was ok. The next day some of us went abseiling in the Kalbarri NP. What an experience. Next night we stayed in Monkey Mia, unfortunately the dolphins didnt come out that day. We stopped other place on our way to Coral Bay. Wraps for lunch or sometimes we stopped at petrol stations where you could buy a gold old aussie pie. Steve was amazing and was able to organise whale shark and Manta Ray Swims for everyone, although it was school holidays and many people around. I would still suggest to book ahead and not be disappointed. 2 nights in exmouth was great. Good accommodation. Good food. And on our way to Perth back, we stayed on farm in Northampton, which was amazing.
