Need to get improved specially services
, Jul 2022
It’s seem like only sandboarding part is good but too short time. It’s only 15minutes. All the rest not worth to go and plus the tour guide just do reading whole time on bus. We need experiences to tell us about history not just reading a book. And didn’t tell or explain us enough information what we do next etc.. the meal just ok not worth ordered lobster.
Great tour

The Pinnacles and the Sandboarding even though it's a long day it doesn't feel like it 100% recommend the Tour
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Hi Sharon_M Thank you for reviewing our Pinnacles and 4WD sandboarding tour. It's great to read you enjoyed your time with us. This tour has a great array of activities and one we always recommend. Hopefully we can welcome you on another tour in the future.
Well-planned and informed tour
, Oct 2021
The whole tour was lovely. It was nice to have a tour in the wildlife park before if opens up to avoid crowds. The lobster shack tour wasn’t as good as I thought because the machinery wasn’t running. We really enjoyed the sand dunes and the pinnacle desert. Make sure you bring extra pair of shoes if you want to go sandboarding! The only downside was the speaker on the bus wasn’t working properly so we missed some of the commentary by our lovely guide/driver Jonathan.

Thank you for taking the time to review our tour and it is great to hear you enjoyed our tour with our Coach Captain Jonathan. We apologise for the fault in our PA system, learning about the region as you drive through to the Pinnacles always heightens the experience. I am glad you enjoyed the highlights of this tour and we hope to welcome you onboard our tour soon. Thank you again for taking the time to review our service.
Good experience
, Mar 2020
Good experience, the best was the sandboarding 4wd tour The guide (bus driver) give interesting information during the tour
A great day out
, Mar 2020
An absolutely fantastic day out, we started off by feeding Kangeroo's, which the children loved, then onto the dunes for a thrilling 4WD truck drive and sand boarding. After that we headed to the Lobster Shack (go for the Lobster up-grade it's delicious and well worth it) finally off the Pinacles, which is a mind boggling must see, before hedaing back to Perth. The Adam's guys were really great! It's quite a long day so be prepared to be a bit exhausted by the end.

Awesome Day Sand Dunes and Pinnacles
, Mar 2020
Great fun sandboarding and driving over the dunes. The Pinnacles are an amazing sight that need to see and experience.
Great trip to the Pinnacles!!
, Mar 2020
The tour guide was the best of three tours taken in Perth. The destinations were very interesting and we were afforded first class treatment at all stops. The Animal park was great being first so the Kangaroos were hungry and ate out of your hands.
, Mar 2020
My wife and I had a great time on the tour. The driver/tour guide gave a great presentation. the trip to the nature center was the high point to us. The Pinnacles presented a vey interesting part of Australia.
Pretty good tour of what Perth has to offer
, Dec 2019
We felt that too much time was spent waiting on other people... this isn't necessarily the fault of the tour operator, it is just that the group was too large, had too many (obnoxious) children and he wasn't stern enough to settle everyone down. It sounds like we might have just gotten a bad group, otherwise the tour itself is nice.
Nice Trip

I really enjoyed the Pinnacles trip, it is a long day but well worth it. The days itinerary is well documented when you book so there should be no surprises. My only concern with the Wildlife Park is that it does mainly cater for overseas tourists, being an interstate Aussie visitor i have seen kangaroos, koalas and wombats many times. Maybe a walk around other parts of the park could be provided. Our drivers were very good and informative. I upgraded to a lobster lunch in Cervantes at the Lobster Shack and it was well worth it. The Pinnacles are truly amazing and very photogenic. The sand dunes at Lancelin are beautiful and even though i didnt participate in the sand boarding it was fun watching. Unfortunately, the 4WD bus did breakdown on the dunes, however everyone stayed calm and we didnt have to wait long for another bus. It did not put a damper on the day. We even got to see the super blood blue moon from the bus on the way home!. I would certainly recommend this day tour from Perth.

, Jan 2018
The day was very hot and we were not offerered bottled water until after two hours, which they had all the time. Suggest that they give one bottle of water for each passenger from start at least on a hot day. Otherwise the service was fine, the visit at Caversham was a rush, the sandboarding so so. The highlight was the Pinnacles, but not to recommend on a hot day : I liked the experience though, but would not do this a second time.

, Dec 2017
Very various and impressive full day tour in a middle sized tour bus, specialy adapted to drive through the sand dunes. We startet by a lovely photo shooting in the Caversham Wildlife Park Koalas, Wombat, then an instructive self-guided tour at the Lobster Shack with fish-lunch, amazing walk through the Pinnacles Desert and finally the absolutly impressive drive in the sand dunes near Lancelin with the funy and crazy sandboarding. Great guide and we got good and a lot of informations. Everywhere we had enough time, no need to hurry. Don't miss!!

The Pinnacles Desert is simply amazing, and the highlight of the tour is the ride on the 4WD on the beautiful white sand dunes! Sandboarding on the white sand dunes is a lot of fun too, definitely worth while to go on this tour.

, Oct 2017
I really enjoyed this tour it was an interesting drive up and our driver was knowledgeable. However, I felt that 45 mins at the Pinnacles was not really long enough. There was the option of a walk - but it needed at least 1 hour 15 mins. The Pinnacles area was really amazing and worth the long drive. I would rather have skipped the Zoo section - which I thought was fine for children - but I am not a fan of the whole have your photo taken with an animal approach. It was a 30 mins whizz round - which I'd rather have spent at the Pinnacles. Whilst our fish and chip lunch was very good - despite the card system - some people who had ordered lobster didn't get their meal at the right time - which delayed our departure to the Pinnacles. This was not the fault of the driver/guide but of the restaurant. I really enjoyed the sand dune 4WD experience as did my fellow passengers! And I thoroughly enjoyed the whole sand-boarding experience - which was guided by our 4WD driver and everyone negotiated the dunes safely. A good day out
