My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful day tour to Port Stephens with APT Day Tours. The driver was fantastic and helped with any queries we had. His local knowledge was informative and interesting. We loved being greeted at the Reptile Park by a 5-year-old alligator which we were able to touch. The staff at the Reptile park were very friendly and keen to answer all our questions. My daughter really like the spider enclosure and being able to feed the kangaroos and wallabies. Nelson Bay is spectacular. The scenery is very beautiful and the dolphin cruise was better than I thought it would be as we saw many pods of Dolphins...To cap off what was already a great day we visited the sand dunes and rode boards down the biggest dunes I have ever seen. My daughter being a bit of a dare devil and only 7 years old thought this was the highlight of the day. I would highly recommend this tour for all ages especially those travelling with children. Fantastic!"R. Ulbrick, www.aptouring.com.au
This is my first time joining APT Tours on my trip to Port Stephens, Australia. First of all, I have to give the driver, Russel, a big round of applause. He was very pleasant and friendly, and was very knowledgable with Sydney's history. He was very clear with giving out instructions and orders too, and took time to make sure that everyone knew what was going on. Although the coach ride lasted for more than an hour, he definitely made it enjoyable...Thank you APT tours for the wonderful trip planning and your amazing staff. I definitely enjoyed every minute of the trip. Thanks!”Joyce, www.aptouring.com.au
