5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

this was the best tour ever, our guide " Keith" was full of knowledge, the camping facility was the best, no crawling into a tent but walking into a nice little cabin with 2 single beds with blankets, pillows and towels waiting for us. The food was great. If you want to learn and discover what is central Australia this is the tour you need to take, from Uluru to Kings Canyon and everything in between, you wont regret any minutes. Everything was very well organise, good management of our time. No regret. I Highly recommended this tour.

4 star rating: Recommended December 2013

The trip was very enjoyable and well organised. Our guide Matt was very knowledgeable , unfortunately on our way back to Alice Springs our bus got stuck in some sand and we were transferred onto another bus and were several hours late back in Alice Springs.
