My Father and I had an amazing time with Colin during our tour of HMAS Ovens. Colin was full of knowledge and answered all the questions we had. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone that is able to make it. Thanks again Colin.

A worthwhile place to visit. If you’re in Fremantle make the trip you’ll enjoy it. Informative and for those who enjoy maritime history it’s a great experience. I’m not a maritime buff but it was fascinating to read and look at history so beautifully documented.
