Jeff Haigh

This Bruny Island tour was awesome!!
We had the best guide/driver (Bunzy) and group. Ferry trip over and back was great, with beautiful views everywhere you looked.
We enjoyed large, fresh oysters, honey and ice-cream, cheese, a fun filled lunch at Bruny Hotel, a nature walk and beach views. The lookout at the lighthouse was worth the walk as were the breathtaking views at The Neck.
We had the best day, we chatted, laughed, took pics and enjoyed the tour and each others company, so much so, we continued when we got back.
Definitely Recommend!
