Jay’s tour was an exciting, fun and precious experience , good for the soul, mind and body.
— Kevin Murphy
I took the tour of the Melbourne mountains, learning some fascinating things about indigenous history. It opened my eyes to so much wonder and meaning about this land and it’s timelessness. It has enriched my experience of this country immensely. I want all my friends, both visitors and locals, to experience this window into the soul of ancient Australia.
