Despite having to dodge the rain showers we had a very informative and enjoyable tour of Freo . Highly recommended.

Can’t recommend this tour highly enough. The guide was witty, knowledgeable and highly entertaining. We visited parts of the town that we wouldn’t have on our own and got a great run down on the history of Fremantle and a grasp of what’s happening now.

With only one full day in Fremantle I was keen to see and learn as much as I could about this beautiful town. Well I certainly wasn't disappointed - I met Dave at the newly restored Town Hall and went from there - so much to see, so many amazing buildings, especially the Prison which has an international heritage listing. Fabulous couple of hours spent with Dave whose knowledge and passion for Freo was fantastic - definitely highly recommend this tour.

Great walking tour. My guide talked about the history of Fremantle as we walked around and pointed out the significant land marks. He was able to answer all my questions and recommended places I could spend more time in and other areas to visit.
