Carnarvon Gorge is a once in a lifetime experience, & Michelle added so much value. We had the most amazing day, gained insights and appreciation we’d have never have hoped for without her extraordinary knowledge of this land and culture. Doing the Gorge without her is only seeing half (or less). Booking ANG really is a must to benefit from this amazing landscape. Can’t recommend them highly enough. We are all still raving about our day. Thank you from all of us: Garry, Hazel, Tom & Jay

Sensational guiding experience. VERY highly recommend. Excellent value for money...I’d happily pay double what we did!! Both Simon and Michelle are wonderful guides who have an incredible approach and fantastic local knowledge. They tailored the tours (we did both the night tour and off the beaten track) to our requirements. Absolute highlights of our Carnarvon Gorge trip - do yourself a favour!!

Thank you so much, Elese! We really appreciate you sharing this wonderful review of your experience with us at Carnarvon Gorge. It was an absolute pleasure sharing some of our favourite places and nocturnal animals with you, and we're so pleased to know you appreciate our approach to guiding. As you might have noticed, we both adore Carnarvon Gorge, but love being able to share the knowledge we've acquired over the years with others. Thank you for joining us! Michelle & Simon

We were lucky to have a personal Night Safari for 2 with Michelle, following their decision to only take one group booking at a time for the safety of their guests in these COVID times. Fantastic customer service, I truly wish them all the best when the restrictions are lifted, I think they will be very busy. The tour was great, I learnt all about gliders (saw 3 types) and heard the amazing sounds you can only hear in the forest at night! I highly recommend booking with them. Will go back one day for a longer tour to learn some more about this amazing place from these knowledgeable guides

Thank you, Erica! I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your recent Night Safari Tour with me. COVID regulations certainly have changed the way many businesses operate, and we are no exception. However, the decision to offer private tours was entirely our own. We simply wanted to ensure our guests felt as comfortable and safe on our tours as possible, and we're really pleased to hear you appreciate our approach. And, of course, small groups means we're better able to tune our hearing into the sounds of our nocturnal wildlife. The gliders sure are the stars of the show, and we were very lucky to encounter three different species. We would love to welcome you back to Carnarvon Gorge sometime in the future, and show you what makes this landscape so special in daylight! Thanks again, Michelle.

Very knowledgable guides. The night tour gave us a great inside into what the animals get up to at night. The highlight of the night was the mischievous gliders chasing each other. Love the way scorpions reveal themselves at night too. Well worth doing.

Thank you, Nancy! We really appreciate you taking the time to share this lovely review of our Night Safari Tour! We sure struck gold seeing those yellow-bellied gliders chasing each other through the forest the other night. Being such a highly social species, it's only natural for them to have the odd disagreement, and luckily we were in the right place at the right time to see it first hand! And the scorpions, although tiny, certainly are beautiful in their own unique way! Thanks again, we're so glad you enjoyed the experience - Simon and Michelle

Michelle provided the most amazing guiding experience for us. We were very impressed with her wide and detailed knowledge of so many aspects of the gorge including (but not limited to) the flora and fauna, the geology, the indigenous culture and art, and, the personalities involved with the creation of the National Park and its facilities. As we walked along she would hear and see animals that we would have missed otherwise. The gorge and the highlights there are very precious. Michelle was very careful about hygiene and followed all the requirements in place to manage the Covid situation. The day was relaxing and so enjoyable - we will do the tour again. Thanks for a special day Michelle.

Thank you so much, Freasabird2, for this wonderful review! We count ourselves very lucky to be operating, despite the set backs from COVID-19. As such, any changes we've made to ensure the comfort and safety of everyone involved is the least we can do. In fact, we're quite enjoying the personalised, private tours we've been offering this year, and we're thrilled to know that you appreciate this approach as well! One of the benefits of walking in very small groups is our ability to listen for wildlife as we wander along. I'm so glad my ears proved helpful during your visit! And I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed my commentary so much. As you may have noticed, I truly love Carnarvon Gorge, and I especially love sharing its stories with others. Thank you for your company. I had a great day, too! Cheers, Michelle.
