Durable and safe 4WD coach with air con. Jimmy is entertaining- adult themes and edgy vocabulary (Crocodile Dundee meets Kel (Kath & Kim) helped with building friendly spirit and banter with the 20 guests. The walk along Palm Valley (following the 4 wheel drive bump of rock and sand ) made for a great day.

We chose this tour because we'd heard the road into Palm Valley was rough, and we were very happy with our choice. Bluey was knowledgeable and engaging, and the 4WD truck was comfortable and perfect for the task. We loved the scenery and the walk and enjoyed Hermannsburg. All up a great day out.

'Bluey' was our guide. Great driver & so much local knowledge, having lived in Alice 47 yrs & tour guiding 35yrs. Bluey passed on much interesting history about the West McDonnell Ranges, also the vegetation, important explorers and figures that have made a huge positive impact on Alice Springs and surrounds.
Our 4x4 trip was an adventure; the 4x4 seating was comfortable.

Bluey had us laughing and smiling throughout the day. The all day 4x4 tour was fabulous and absolutely beautiful scenery - ever changing high orange/red rock formations, palm trees and ancient cycads.

Thank you Bluey for an incredible day!

A fascinating trip out to Palm Valley with Bluey as our Driver. Bluey knew the history of the area and this was interesting to listen to as we travelled to Palm Valley. I am interested in plants and he was also very knowledgeable about these. Areas in the Finke river were very sandy after the heavy rainfall and some 4WD's were bogged. Bluey was a very experienced driver and we had not problems. Well worth a visit to Palm Valley the plants and landscape were amazing.

Bluey was our guide for the day, a wealth of knowledge with a great sense of humour. We visited Hermannsburg (who do delicious strudel) then set out off the main road, four wheel driving was great fun through the Finke River bed and beyond over rock, sand and big sheets of stone. Their purpose built vehicle was comfortable across the terrain. Palm Valley and Cycad Gorge were very impressive, opportunity provided for walks and photo stops. Make your own wrap for lunch with fresh salads and meat provided. This tour was top notch, it was a fun day exploring a spectacular part of Australia with a wonderful guide.

We went on the tour in the 4WD bus with 15 people. Bluey had a vast knowledge of the places and history and we could feel his enthusiasm/passion of his local area in his voice. The places we visited were beautiful. We went through some rough and wet roads and he was so cool. The lunch was health and delicious. I would recommend 100% for this tour. Thanks Bluey!

Perfect 4WD experience on all terrain vehicle. The driver has great character, professionalism and great digging skills! His knowledge of each area was fantastic. The food on offer was plentiful, the attraction had low visitor numbers which were perfect for absorbing the scenery.

Our driver Bluey was full of stories ( 1 too many) & information about the area.. It was an amazing day. We were in a 4WD coach which Bluey dealt well with. Amazing location & so worth doing if you are in Alice Springs. We did 2 walks, which most people should be able to do. you could only go here if you had a 4WD. so this is a perfect tour for those who don't have a FWD

This was our favourite tour from Alice. We were not expecting such an exciting day driving along the Finke River with our driver, Bluey. He was so enthusiastic. It was a great trip ending in the beautiful views along Palm Valley. We were impressed with the way National parks had made the walks accessible to many without impacting on the natural environment. Despite being in a remote spot Bluey gave us a delicious lunch. Unfortunately my camera went into shock mode due to the rough terrain and I got no photos. Lucky my husband took some as well. We also enjoyed visiting the Hermansburg Mission and enjoyed their delicious strudel. Great trip!
