Awesome experience, especially combined with the visit to Hermannsburg for morning tea, and their lunch provisions were delicious. The bus ride was an experience in itself: I knew it was a high clearance 4WD only trip, and the energetic ride proved it! However, Dave’s expert navigation over the Finke River bed and the rocky terrain made sure we stayed in one piece .

Great tour, with excellent tour guide, Brett. He knew all relevant information regarding the areas visited. He was very professional, friendly and helpful and was a very experienced 4WD driver, especially on some of the rough tracks. All of the sites visited were well worth visiting, especially Palm Valley and Hermansburg

It was a gteat day with a knowledgeable driver/tour guudd Pete. Very interesting stories about area and s 4WD to the valley meant we git to see and walk in area you wouldnt normally see. Palm Valley. Our stop at Hermansborg on the way was also interesting

The tour itinerary and timing was very enjoyable and educational. Lots of fun thanks to the driver/guide Brett. It allowed us to access an area we could not have gone on our own.

Very friendly and informative tour guide, excellent drive into the valley. The sight were amazing.
