Alice Springs, Australia
This was an excellent tour. Myles our driver/guide was extremely informative. We visited five different locations and even though I must admit I thought a couple of them would be boring they were all extremely interesting. Especially the school of air and the owner of the reptile centre was so passionate about his animals it made it even more enjoyable.
The flies at the aboriginal art work were a real pest, you should invest in a fly net if you are thinking of going there. Our favourite part of this tour was the cruise on the yellow river, although one and a half hours didn't seem long enough. The cold buffet lunch was very good, quite a good choice of food. It was a very long day picked up at 6.10am and got back to our hotel at 8pm, but I think it was worth it. If it wasn't for the flies the tour would have rated a 5 star!
We took the scenic railway up with a couple of stops on the way to take photographs. We went into the wildlife bit which was very small but the lady who showed us around was very knowledgable. We had a buffet lunch which had lots of options. Then we went on the army duck which was extremely interesting. Tina our driver/guide was excellent and showed us some flora and fauna and some local wildlife. The aboriginal display was good. We didn't try the spear or boomerang throwing instead we went and held a baby crocodile and got to speak to the keepers for ten minutes, who were more than happy to answer all of our questions. We then went in the skyrail, again with a couple of stops on the way down to take even more photographs. It was a long day but very enjoyable.
