Excellent tour. Some challenging walks and very rough tracks. Excellent lunch.
great day out with a fantastic guide! Highly recomended.
Had a great day, good company and a good guide.
This was a great trip , well organised and on a comfortable bus we enjoyed the commentary given by the driver. The billy tea in the river bed went down a treat as did the lunch served after our walk along palm valley. Would recommend the trip to any one who will listen.
Verry charming tour. Wonderful views.
Good day and very interesting. Temperature was very hot so some activities were self restricted. The track in was very rough and some elderly people were uncomfortable.
Really good, driver/offsider very good and very efficient. Driver very experienced but track into Palm Valley terrible realise it is only a track but sitting in the back of the bus was very uncomfortable.
On the whole - great to have been there.
The guide was excelent, the places are amazing. Very nice views.
