  • The best tour I have been on in a while. Better than all expectations. I will not give why away but if in Perth it’s a must. Our guide, Caroline was amazing and clearly loved what she was doing. Well done!
  • Best thing I did in Perth. Greg the guide was outstanding, hilarious and clearly loves his job! Absolutely the best value for money attraction I have ever been to! Loved all the coins and little bits inside. You can even make custom coins. They can print nearly anything you want on them. I would 100% recommend if you are in Perth to go on the tour and check it out.
