Wonderful experience! Be advised though that it takes a lot of driving to get to Monkey Mia so if you have a problem with riding a bus for nearly 10 hours in a day don't do it!
Other than that, wonderful organization, great food, our guide Bob was wonderful, informative and kind.
Great accomodation too. A must-see if you want to see a lot in a little time!
