Reviews by our Fraser Tours customers

Samuel End, 11 Jun 23
great people and awesom island.
Sinead Turner, 02 Mar 23
Really fun experience, highly recommend to anybody! Food was amazing and nobody ever went hungry. Would’ve been better if we had left on time and not lost out on time at Lake McKenzie, as it was the most beautiful place on the Island!
Luc Zeilstra, 14 Feb 23
It was a great experience! Perfect itinerary and good vibes in the group and with the guide. It felt a bit self guided sometimes but I think that might be a good thing.
Annabelle Legg, 12 Feb 23
It was the best tour, so well prepared and our tour guide Scott was very good at dealing with tough situations that arose.
