I have researched several companies for this trip to the Outback and found that Intrepid had the best itinerary for the best price. Most bang for your buck. Great tour guides. Great memories. Tip: make sure that the trip style is something that you like. If you are used to nice hotels and don't like long hours in the bus, look for something else. If you don't mind a real adventure with all what comes with it, this is your trip. You will be rewarded with nice memories.
