  • James was the best tour guide we could have asked for! He was a very good driver and a very friendly, talkative person, which is why we enjoyed spending the day with him. He knows a a lot and is happy to share his knowledge! Thus, I am sure future travellers would certainly enjoy being his passengers.
  • This is the first time I have taken a tour of the Colourful Trips. The tour to Canberra made a very strong impression on me. I felt very excited of this tour. As a reporter, I absolutely will write about the beauty of Canberra. Thank the tourguide and the organizers of this tour. I will book a tour of Colourful Trips to Blue Mountaines in the next month.
