Fantastic Tour

We were thoroughly impressed with this tour. Tony, our guide was so informative about the Hisyory of the whole Farm and all of the animals. We never expected to get so close to the Gannets, it was amazing! Would definitely recommend.

Lovely day, great host

Was happy for myself that there were only a couple of us on the tour, sad for the company though, but it was nice and quiet and more personal. What a lovely drive overland through the farm and past the golf course and lodge. Was fun to be amongst the farm animals, spectacular views of the landscape and ocean. Rob was a great and informative host and driver. Being so close to the Gannets was really neat, they are a bit smelly and noisy but so beautiful and interesting and it was cool to see cute little fluffy babies... I highly recommend this tour and this company for a great experience... It was a good day for it too, not too hot. Thanks for having me.
