Tour was extensive and informative. Little long in places. Antedotes rather than reading from his guide about peoples quotes would have created interest. Found carrying his photo folder cumbersome. Would have liked a bit more information on the roundhouse, canon and the tunnel.

Big Al is a lovely guide. Our walking tour was absolutely enjoyable and light. The city is small, however with big history.

We thoroughly enjoyed Allen’s well-researched and informative tour. Plenty of gore, crime and historic development which just shows you that money and misbehavior go hand in hand. Allen did a great job and we recommend the tour.

Big Al was a great tour guide, we learned a lot about Freo and it’s past, and would highly recommend this to all other travellers there. And he likes a Cullen’s pastie also.
