This is the second time we booked tours with Tours With a Twist. We did the Pinnacles/sand boarding tour last time we were in Perth and had such a great time that we looked on their website to see what other tours
they had. We decided on the New Norcia tour with high tea and also the Busselton jetty tour.
On the way to New Norcia we stopped at Bindoon bakehaus to buy coffee and cake and as an added bonus Suzan also stopped in a couple of places to check out the wild flowers on the side of the road. It was late in the season so we were delighted that there were still flowers around.
When we arrived at New Norcia we were met by our guide Sue who took us through a number of different buildings and explained their history and features to us. The tour took 2 hours but there were plenty of opportunities to sit and listen to Sue tell the stories of this incredible place.
We were lucky enough to be able to hear Fr Robert play the organ and piano ( his own composition)to us. He also answered questions regarding the lifestyle of the Monks who lived there and also about his own life. After the tour we went to the hotel to have high tea for lunch. There was plenty of food and the staff packed up the leftovers to take with us. After lunch we were able to check out the museum and art gallery. I opted to look around the cemetery as well.
New Norcia is a unique place and well worth a visit.
Busselton Jetty tour.
We did this tour with Jill. It is a long drive but we stopped on the way at the Miami Bakery and also called in to Morris Lanes Taffy shop. We were able to see butter toffee being made plus we were able to sample and purchase quite a few of their products. At Busselton we had a lunch
in the park before catching the little train to the underwater observatory at the end of the jetty. We had a guide who told us about the history of the jetty and pointed out different fish and plants. It was an awesome experience. We had plenty of time to explore on our own before catching the train back. We then had time to look around the museum and gift shop before heading home. We stopped to stretch our legs and get a coffee and cake on our way back. As there were just the 2 of us, Jill dropped us off to our hotel.
Both of these ladies are great, nothing too much trouble and they are also very knowledgeable about the places we went through and the places we visited. They are easy to talk to and have a great sense of humor.
Hope to see them next time I'm in Perth.

I took this tour alone while I was here visiting my best friends. They have been to pinnacles so I decided to do it by myself. The trip was amazing. Everything was well organised. it was difficult to make such a long drive interesting. But Suzan did it. I love how she combined Yanchep, Moore River, Sand boarding and Pinnacles together. Unlike other tours, you have quite a lot to see and do. What a day! Thank you Suzan. If you are thinking traveling north, take this trip. you won't regret. only thing you have to know, driving back could be a bit long so get ready. Basically you cant avoid it if you are going to pinnacles.

Thank Sean Z

We thoroughly enjoyed the New Norcia trip. The guide of two-hour tour was so interesting, we wanted another hour! We were also treated to a concert in one of the chapels, as one of the monks is a very talented pianist/organist and plays each Monday. The concert consisted of two short pieces on the piano and one on the organ. It was a privilege to hear this man play. The tour includes entry to the not-to-be missed museum and art gallery; the fascinating guided tour of some of the chapels and other buildings; a very generous high tea at the hotel including champagne, tea/coffee; a picturesque return drive via the Swan Valley, Chittering and Bindoon; and a lovely driver who seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. It was great. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful time with the tour , the tour tailored to all age which is great , i have young kid and teenager , they both enjoyed and had amazing experiences to share with their friends back home . too bad the weather was still windy so we couldnt swim in moore river. sand boarding was fun, we read all pinnacles history in the galery and found it amazing.

Suzan was very friendly and a safe driver, Jill also always response to all emails, questions promptly which was easier and effective for us to make decisions. would absolutely recommend to family and friends

Took the Pinnacles tour on the 16th August. Great day out with a small group that made this tour felt more like a road trip with a bunch of friends. Suzan was one of the friendliest guides I've ever met in my life (coming from someone whose family are also tour guides). The tour was well-organised with optimal time to relax, and absorb the full scenery of each attraction.

Will recommend this tour to everyone. Only wish that I discovered this tour company sooner.
