        Great Day Out!
        Lovely day out with Busy Blue Bus Tours! We went on the Mt Barker Grape Escape with Susan as tour guide. We even had the bus to ourselves so it was like a private tour! We learned a lot about wine production in the area, sampled so much great wine and had a lovely morning snack and great lunch. It was great to interact with the producers who were all friendly. We felt unrushed and welcomed. Would recommend!

        A wonderful day out not to be missed.
        Most enjoyable day out. 4 great Wineries to visit including lunch, a nice mixed platter. Sue our tour guide was knowledgeable about the area we travelled and the places we visited. The wine tastings were not only yummy but informative, mostly given by family members of the Winery. The bus was comfortable and roomy. Definitely recommend this tour.

        Enlightening Experience
        We thoroughly enjoyed the two hour Albany City Tour with Susan. From the start we were so impressed with Susan’s knowledge and enthusiasm. Susan helped us engage with the history and modern day Art on the streets of Albany. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough .

        Wine tasting from Albany
        A fantastic day! Small group. Visited 4 wineries for tastings - all quite different. A good introduction to the region. Susan our guide was very knowledgeable about the region, the wineries and the wines. Also included a lovely shared platter lunch. Highly recommended.

        Such a relaxing way to see ART
        I took this tour with my sister to see art of the Great Southern Art Trail. We both found it such a relaxing way to spend the day taking in art at a number of galleries and indulging in a splendid lunch at Ducketts Mill. The artists at each venue welcomed us on arrival and explained their processes and works to us and in a couple of places, took us out back to see their workshops. Our tour guide, Tim, was great and we enjoyed some interesting conversations with him along the way. I'm a local in the region, and while I could have driven my car to the venues, the special treatment the artists provided, together with the relaxation of being chauffeured around and not be concerned with directions or timing made this tour so worthwhile. I will definitely do this tour again.

        The Gap and Coastal Tour
        Tim picked us up promptly at our caravan park in an immaculately clean vehicle. He is an engaging person, full of knowledge about Albany and its surrounds - we could not have appreciated this itinerary if we’d tried to do it on our own. The coastal scenery is amazing, then being up close to the wind turbines, and finally the view of Albany from Mount Melville. Oh, and the scones and tea at the whale centre were great too. Highly recommend this tour, especially if Tim is leading it.

        Beautiful Scenery - Must Do When in Albany
        I booked The Gap and Natural Wonders Tour tour with Busy Blue Bus rather than take the cruise ship excursion which was shorter and way more expensive. We were picked up at the cruise port and it turned out all the people on my tour were from my cruise ship. There were 10 people on my tour in a minibus. We had ample time at all of the attractions and our guide walked with us and gave explanations and answered any questions. Our guide loved Albany and gave a lot of information about the city too. We stopped for a delicious scone and hot chocolate at the Whaling Station. Torndirrup National Park is a must see when in Albany. We also visited The Albany Wind Farm.

        Mt Barker - Wine Tasting Tour
        My Wife, Son and his Wife had wonderful wine tasting tour in the Mt Barker region of WA. We were picked up by Phillip our driver for the day at Mt Baker’s visitor centre. The vehicle was a large people carrier and it was very clean and comfortable. There was another couple on the tour who we quiet quickly made friends with. The tour took us to four local vineyards and we had a lovely lunch platter at one of them that was included in the price. We have never done a wine tasting tour before and we learnt a lot and had a great time. I highly recommend the Busy Blue Bus wine tou, it was a marvellous day out.

        Safe trip from Albany to Bremer Bay
        Susan provided a safe early morning trip to Bremer Bay to meet the naturalistic Orca tour, then returned us back to Albany. A long drive but she managed it well.

        Amazing Tour
        This tour was such a fun day. Susan was a great guide and had so much knowledge of the area. Ended up only being the 2 of us however we still got to go on the tour it wasn’t cancelled. We both had a blast and got so much goodies from each place we visited. Would highly recommend this tour with Busy Blue Bus Tours.

        Private wine tour - Margaret River
        Our tour with Busy Blue Bus was a little different from the usual. As we were the only couple on the tour we had a private driver with the lovely Kathleen. We had a great day with a lot of local knowledge. We had a lovely lunch with wine mead and chocolates to finish the day. This was a great way to spend the day.

        Breathe taking views, with some effort before hand
        The walk from car park to top is roughly 2.4 kms but at your own pace it is doable for most. The rock scrambles at the top require a little bit of coordination but I guarantee you the view is worth it! We got up there quite early so still had some cloud cover which was amazing, then the clouds started to break and the view became breathe taking. We even got to see some small icicles in the air floating about. Unforgettable….

      We had a great time. The tour allowed us to see and learn so much of Albany’s history and gorgeous landscape! Highly recommend. We were so glad we did the tour rather than driving ourselves around - it was nice to just sit back and relax, and not worry about directions/parking/navigation. Plus the commentary along the way was fantastic :)

      Albany is a place I never thought we'd venture to given its distance from Perth but, you can now fly direct from Melbourne to Busselton with Jetstar and pick up your hire car at the airport which makes the distance much less daunting. The drive from the Margaret River is easy... not much traffic and you travel through beautiful forests and farmland all the way. You will encounter some large and long trucks along the way but there is ample opportunity to pass them on the journey and there are enough petrol/food/restrooms to stop at. It took us approximately 4 hours from Dunsborough to get there and worth a mention is, make sure you have some of your own music to play on the journey as radio stations are few and far between and not very appealing with music choice.
      You need to book your accommodation well in advance because Tourism has become a large contributor to the economy there. Having said all this...is it worth it?? Absolutely yes on so many levels. It is quite a large town with a great history. The people are welcoming and the food is amazing. The scenery is excellent.. many beautiful beaches (Middleton Beach has so much to offer), great landscapes and an easy drive to The Gap and Natural Bridge.
      We continued down to Esperance after 3 nights in the Albany area but, that's another story and must do for so many reasons.
      South west Western Australia has so much to offer beyond the Margaret River region. Australia is so vast and remote areas may not be as appealing for very young families due to the tyranny of distance but for those of you that are willing, it's worth it and airlines are starting to pick up on this.

      Absolutely amazing, walking up onto the platform you can hear the waves crashing against the cliff face but it isn't until you get to the end of it that you experience the raw power of the ocean. Stunning view.

      The tour starts out going through the countryside to The Gap and Natural Arch Bridge. You see kangaroos along the way. The ocean and rocky shore is stunning in the morning sun. Next, you tour the city on your way to a high observation point where you see the entire bay and surrounding islands. You end you tour at the ANZAC Center. It tells the story of the men who went from Australia to Gallipoli during WW 1. It is extremely well done and worth the time.

      Hi ncpeterson 2004 It sounds like you saw a great deal of Albany and the Torndirrup National Park, as well as, the National Anzac Centre on your recent visit. The granite cliff edges are sensational walls against which the ocean crashes and the best viewing is from the new platform at The Gap. In King George Sound there are many islands including Michaelmus and Breaksea. A local author, Di Wolfer has written about 'The Lighthouse Girl' who lived on Breaksea Island and her view of the departing Anzac fleet. The Anzac story is well recorded and revealed at the National Anzac Centre. We are delighted you toured with us and found Albany 'a great place'. Come again to the Amazing South Coast.
