Good overview of the area, guide gave very informative talk throughout tour. Not sure if I would have been happy in high summer though, there were a lot of flies about especially at Telegraph Hill. We were able to join in with a lesson at the School of the Air, would recommend everyone to help out this worth while school and donate a book for their library. The Flying Doctors Service stop gave us time to view a film about their history and facilities, didn't realise just what a great job they did.

Half Day Highlights Tour of Alice Springs
We wanted an afternoon tour on the second day to overcome the jet lag as we come from the east coast of the USA. This tour was well done for the time limits involved although we could have and would have spent more time at each spot if we were on our own. The tour stopped at the following locations:
1.0         Anzzac Hill 5 Minutes here for the views of Alice Springs and its surroundings. Great stop because one gets an idea how vast the area is.
2.0         School of the Area Introductory Film Excellent, They provide an education to the children of remote places where there is no school or beyond 50 Km from the nearest school. There closest students are 85 kilometers away and they severe children over 1000 Km away. Today it ius done by satellite and internet. To foster bonds between students they meet at the Schools facility 3 to 4 times a year. As a former Electronics Instructor I am amazed at the dedication of these teachers to their remote students and I can see where you would either love the job or hate it. Sreeped in history actually started with radio and pedal generators. Has many successful students but they stop after 9 th grade they stop and have to decide on correspondence classes, boarding school or family move to within 50 Km of a High School.
3.0        Alice Springs Telegraph Station This is where the town started. Rich in History. The first signals from London Passed Through here. It connects Adelaine and Darwin.
I was fascinated by what these people had to endure to builf this station and survive here, If you think about it for a second you will realize the all supplies jad to be carried in by camel as train stopped about 500 Kilometers away.
4.0        Royal Flying Doctor Service RFDS There are 25 of these across Austrilia and they provide first class medical service to people living in remote are. However, this is where it all started, The 20 min Halograph Presentation is excellent. I really wondered if the name is correct because on 50 of the flights no Doctor is aboard. Just a Flight nurse for which the training is rather rigorous,
Perhaps it should be called the Royal Flying Medical Service. This was my wifes favorite stop and right up there in my book.
5.0 Reptile Muesuem I was not looking forward to this part of the tour but boy was I shocked. The guide not only made it interesting but keep it great. This is all due to the enthusiasm of the Repitile Center Employee who in our book made all the difference in the world.

This is an excellent tour introducing visitors to the School of the Air, the original Bush Telegraph Station and the Flying Doctor Service. Although Alice Springs is a long way from Melbourne or Sydney, this trip made it worth making the journey.

A lovely guide. The tour was good but probably could have included more about aboriginal culture rather than the reptile centre

O passeio é uma boa opção para quem quer conhecer Alice Springs rapidamente. Os lugares que fomos são legais, mas conta mais histórias de empresas que ajudam as pessoas, mas acaba sendo interessante. O guia da AAT Kings era muito legal e engraçado.
Mas, uma opinião da cidade, é que os aborigenes assustam os turistas, e tem muito deles perambulando pelas ruas de Alice Springs, ficam falando alto, discutindo, e parecem como mendigos. Eu não voltaria para Alice Springs por causa disso.

Good opportunity to see the main attractions in Alice Springs in a short time. It was great to see the Old Telegraph station, Reptile park, the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the amazing work that they do Anzac Hill and the School of the Air which allows you to see the teacher giving the lessons via an incredible network of computers, reaching some children 1000's kilometres away.

We went to School of the Air and saw a lesson in progress. It was very interesting, and as a former teacher, I was amazed at the technology and what a difference it has made to outback students living in remote areas. The Overland Telegraph Station was much more interesting than I expected, but much more time could be spent there. We were amazed by our visit to the Royal Flying Doctor Service. We had no idea they have so many aircraft and are kept so busy, and in far more areas than outback Australia. The story of its founding is just amazing. Rex from the reptile place we visited was a real character, and we learned a lot from his talk and watching him with a crocodile, lizards and a snake he had removed that day. Finally, the visit to Anzac Hill at sunset was a very apt way to finish our stay in Alice Springs. We'd recommend this tour, and our guide, Natasha, whose speech and instructions were very clear. Not a moment was wasted!
