What people are saying about Canberra Commonwealth Park

The tour was very, very nice and interesting. From your arrival to visits to all museums and their parliament. Just lovely. There are small breaks on the return trip to stretch your feet or have a coffee. There was also an older couple who felt very comfortable. And above all the tour guide, who was very very nice and accommodating and fun !! 1A + it can only be recommended.

We were given the incorrect departure times even though I phoned the day before to check. Was advised to be at 812 George st by 6-45 ready for 7-00am departure. Finally collected at 7-50am so had a long wait . Driver was distracted with phone messaging, nearly had an accident near McDonalds. Vehicle ok.

Thank you to our delightful and funny guide, Kim for an awesome tour! He was an absolute gentleman who made sure everyone on the tour was well informed and comfortable. My sister and I had a great time thanks to Kim. Would highly recommend.
