I work for a non-profit that serves children and adults with developmental disabilities and that is who I booked the Koala Bear Tour for. We had about 20 participants.
Wendy was an excellent guide and she is very knowledgable. As you are in the wild you do not know how many koala's you may see, but as Wendy looked for Koala's she provided education on Koala's and answered questions. We were able to see 4-5 koala bears. I highly recommend this tour. It was enjoyed by my entire group.

Wendy was a fantastic tour guide and very knowledgeable. She made the tour enjoyable and very interactive. She was able to answer all questions asked by my group of about 20 and provide even more information. As it is in the wild, we were able to see 3 koalas while on the tour. My group would highly recommend this tour to all that enjoy wildlife, koalas, and a neat experience.

Wendy is a fantastic guide and such an expert on Koalas. It was a wonderful hour spent watching an adorable Koala in its natural habitat and simultaneously getting an expert's insight on them, and their future. I have a newfound appreciation for these precious endangered species and all the people (like Wendy) who work hard to ensure their safety.
