Great way to see the West MacDonald Ranges in a day. We had a perfect day with John our tour guide. Picked up on time. Commentary was good throughout the day, just the right amount o f talking and good knowledge. Safe driving along the roads. As I had been to the West MacDonald Ranges previously I knew what to,expect.... More

I did the one day return tour to Uluru and Kata Tjuta from Alice Springs. It was an amazing experience and suited my need for a quick tour perfectly. It IS a long drive but you feel like there are enough stops to break it up. The guides knowledge, once we arrived, was outstanding. The care packages of food (all... More

On our first visit to Northern Territory from Queensland my husband and I choose to do the 3 day tour, what an experience, the tour guides Lee and Mark are fantastic, such a vast expance of knowledge and made the experience fun, even though it was awfully cold. We got to achieve challenges such as exploring Kata Tjuta, seeming the... More

Can't rate this trip highly enough! Very early start but well worth it. Thanks to the tag team approach from James and Rich we were treated to a mix of light humour, uncrowded sightseeing opportunities, stories explaining Aboriginal traditions and culture, comfortable tour schedule even with so much to see, and great BBQ spot to watch the sunset against Uluru....

I can't recommend this tour highly enough. Fantastic scenery, some wonderful walks (the only tiny negative for me was that I'd have loved to walk all the way round Uluru, whereas there's only time to walk half way round, seeing the other half from the minibus), excellent food and camping spots, plenty of fun and laughter with others in the...

In full respect with Aboriginal Culture! THANK YOU! I am just back from this fantastic 3 days lead by a enthusiast, kind, well-mannered and awesome tour guide LEE. He gave us so much explanations, history, cultural, geographic, geologic... that was absolutely making a difference. Many passengers came from o/s and he gave them a really good insight about Australia. They... More

Three day camping tour - would do again in a heartbeat. Spectacular scenery, accessible hikes (I was quite worried about this but fear not, just wear sturdy shoes) great food, camping under beautiful stars.... everything seamlessly organised and very fun, and one of my absolute highlights of Australia. Special thanks to tour guide Lee for being such a superstar!

This was a wonderful trip! The scenery was fantastic and our overall experience was enhanced by Lee who was enthusiastic and bloody great fun to be around with. He was knowledgeable and flexible with different requirements as my partner was recovering from an illness at the time of departure. Although I do question some of his music choice (Glee, Natalie...

An incredible day was had by all!! Hard to believe you can fit so much into a one day Uluru tour!! Without a doubt the highlight was the great balance of cultural awareness, history and humour all delivered by our great guides Tic and James. This is a truly wonderful experience and loads of fun. The only lowlight was that... More
