What an amazing experience. A passionate and informative aboriginal guide showing us her country. Tess and her husband Greg went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. They were more like friends than tour operators. The food which was served at lunch time was fantastic. We swam at little water holes not visited by other tour operators. Time was not an issue.....the day was ours to enjoy as we wished and Tess and Greg were there to enjoy the day with us. I recommend this trip.....fantstic value for money and at the end of the day, we had made friends with two more amazing people

A fabulous day was had with Tess & Greg on this small intimate tour. They are both warm, friendly, funny and passionate about their tour. Their knowledge of culture, birds, animals & flora is extensive, they welcomed questions and in fact encouraged them. On this small tour they are able to cater times and stops to the group, nothing was rushed. Lunch was a great spread of Barra, crocodile, kangaroo, salads, bread, cheese & dips and a huge range of fruits. I did a more commercial tour of Litchfield many years ago, but this tour was by far better. So if you want to immerse yourself into this wonderful area, please book this tour, you won’t be disappointed.

Our tour with Tess and Greg was a highlight of our recent visit to the Northern Territory. It was an intimate experience that enabled us to benefit from their knowledge, passion and wisdom; and the flexibility for them to tailor the experience to our particular interests. It was a joy to share in Tessa’s connection to country and we would encourage anybody with an interest in expanding their knowledge of Aboriginal Australia to include this as an essential for their trip to the Top End. Very highly recommended.

What a great day we had. It was a less structured tour which meant if we found something particularly interesting, there was no pressure to rush onto the next . Tess and Greg are warm, funny and have a passion for the land. Tess spent part of her youth living on the land with her family and we found her stories fascinating. Greg has also worked as a ranger and has great knowledge of flora, fauna and everything in between. Lunch was delicious and presented beautifully. Would definitely do this trip again should we ever get back to NT and highly recommend.
