This tour was amazing!

Reviewed by: Marilyn H, April 2014

We stopped off at Lorne overnight. We just loved this seaside resort. the weather was amazing and our hotel at the Cumberland was very comfortable. The next day we were picked up on time by our bus driver Richard who was so interesting in his commentaries. I would thoroughly recommend Richard as a tour guide - he was the best. We loved all the sites along the coast and even the journey back through farm lands was interesting. All in all it was an amazing tour - well worth going and we will have happy memories for a long time. Thank you very much.
