I had the best time ever on this tour. Our guides, Sean and Miguel were so knowledgeable. Everything was made seamless by them and nothing was too much trouble. Food was included and Sean nailed it every day with the most delicious lunches. Accommodation was terrific and the group was such good fun! Thanks everyone for making a good tour great. Cliona

Amazing trip! Fantastic way to get insight into local knowledge and access sites that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to. Knowledgeable, passionate guides made this an unforgettable trip. The physical rating can be taken with a grain of salt, the most we walked was 10km, & though rocky terrain and the heat made it challenging, I didn’t think it was anywhere near as difficult as the trip info makes it out to be. I would definitely recommend taking a Camelbak as this makes keeping hydrated so much easier.

What an amazing trip! Thankyou to our guides, Sean & Miguel, for taking us to some fabulous spots in the NT! Morning hikes to centuries old rock art, lunchtime picnics by billabongs, afternoon dips in pools & waterfalls, evening sunsets and group fun! Wildlife, scenery, history, local knowledge, cultural info, touring this stunning part of Australia. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Well organised and faultless tour guides. Plenty of time to swim and hike, catering for all abilities. Also time to chill out at the end of the day. Note the website describes the length of the hikes/driving to be longer. Still plenty for the hiking enthusiast, but less demanding than expected.
