John was an excellent tour guide and very informative. We walked to the Dove Lake all the way to the lookout and back towards the boat shed with John accompanying us. We learnt a lot about the history of Cradle Mountain and we highly recommend this tour.

Paul was a knowledgeable guide who gave us all the information and history of Cradle mountain. This made our trip so much better and interesting. The beauty of Cradle mountain is unsurpassed. A fabulous day out

Loved it. Was so blessed with the weather. Andrew the guide was really nice to everyone. Everyone helpful with pickup location too

It was a great day. John was really good. It is a light lunch- a roll. Think that needs to be mentioned. The bus was substandard.

Great experience and a very well organised day out. Highly recommend
