For anyone who is thinking of doing this tour, I would highly recommend. Our guide was very informative and had a great knowledge of the area. Sights were magnificent.

We really didn't know what to expect and the bus picked us up and what a great bus it was. It was like a 4wd truck. They headed of to Simpsons Gap. Beautiful which we walked and had a look and then as we came back to the bus the driver pulled out tea, coffee, hot chocolate, cake and biscuits.
Then off to Standley Chasm. It also was beautiful. After we finished the 1.2km walk we went back and had sandwiches, potato chips and a drink served. Very delicious.
Those of us who went onto the Alice Springs Desert Park were dropped off and then picked up again but we had a choice of what times we wanted picked up. I personally wouldn't bother with Alice Springs Desert Park again but for the price we paid it was very good value.

Lots of good information and wonderfully unexpected scenery. This tour certainly dispells the perception of Alice in a boring desert in the middle of nowhere. (Well, that last part may be right.)

I loved this tour. The tour guide was very wonderful. We went to Simpsons Gap and Standley Chasim. Both places were beautiful. I also had the optional walking tour at Desert Park. This was very interesting and I was surprised to see all the flowering native flowers. The nocturnal house was great.

Our guide was really friendly. Saw 3 wild rock wallabies. 5 people out of 10-15 chose to go to the Desert Park. 3 people went back to the city at 14:30, but me (solo traveler) and the other solo traveler decided to stay there until 16:30. It's pretty small, but worth visiting for sure.

A fantastic way to spend the day in Alice Springs. Standley Chasm was the highlight - an amazing place to see. Our tour guide was a wealth of information as well. Definitely recommended.

Our driver was extremely knowledgeable about the area and being in a small 20 seater it was a nice group. The Desert Park was extremely interesting and most certainly worth a visit. Our driver took us into the park, gave a run down on timings of happenings etc.

A very interesting and scenically half day trip into the Mountains. We took the option of entry to the Desert Park which was a very worthwhile experience of the region's flora and fauna.

This was an enjoyable tour. Lunch was only sandwiches not bushtucker. The Desert Park option was not what we expected as just dropped off and then picked up later.
