.. and the resultCustomer Testimonials
Danny and Scott are amazing guides. Both different but superb. I enjoyed walking and talking with both of them. I would definitely walk with them again. The restaurant was great. Freycinet Lodge is such a lovely place to stay, although I wasn't quite aware of how fancy it was. The guides really made the tour for me. The decision was summit Amos was the icing on the cake that made it go from great to amazing!
