    Personal Service

    I had the pleasure of joining the owner of Awakeri Rail Adventures for a trip during a visit to the area during October. The tour was much more interesting as you have complete control of your car unlike others rail tours I have taken with cars that are computer controlled. The tour guide - owner was super friendly and thoughtful as we stopped along the trip for an informative short trek through the bush and also for an animal feeding, as well as refreshments at another venue. The trip was really most enjoyable, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have an entertaining few hours.
