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.
Fantastic and very informative. Rex at the reptile park was amazingly knowledgeable
A very informative tour given at each place we visited, Tour guide was a local lad who also gave us good history and knowledge of the area.
Fantastic tour! We added Alice Springs to our trip as a little extra and were not disappointed. The School of the Air was a true pioneer in long distance education and it was great to watch teachers delivering their lessons to their students. The Reptile House was remarkable as the owner took us through each critter and even explained how to survive a deadly bite. Learning about the long distance medical services was also extremely interesting and gave you a good sense of the struggles living remotely can bring. Easy hotel pickup and we were offered delivery back or optionally downtown drop off with dinner suggestions.
If you are in Alice Springs for a short period of time, this is a great way to see and learn a lot quickly. The small group makes it personal which is really nice, and the stops are all really interesting. The Reptile Center was especially fun! Definitely recommend!
Really good tour to see Alice Springs if you dont have a lot of time for the town, but still a very relaxed tour that brings you to all the important places. Very interesting to watch a live school lesson at the school of the air as well as seeing the base of the Flying Doctors . The guides at the Reptile Park were very enthusiatic and gave excellent information about the animals. Finally from Anzac Hill you get a fantastic view of the whole town and the ranges, which were especially beautiful and green after a wet winter 2016.
Great way to see Alice if you have restricted time and no car.
A lot packed in here, tanya was great .. Each stop was well thought out to give a great and #34;taste and #34; of alice.
This tour was great. A small group with our expert guide James. We visited the School of the Air, the Telegraph Station, The Royal Flying Doctor Service, the Reptile Centre, and Anzac Hill. My personal favourites were the RFDS and Anzac Hill. Anzac Hill is not only the War Memorial but a lookout with 360 degree views of Alice Springs and the surrounding Ranges. We were fortunate enough to be there when the storm was approaching and got some amazing photos! James regaled us with history and anecdotes as well as recommended some pubs and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this tour!
Excellent tour - very informative guide, Byron, and excellent tour of School of the Air, Telegraph Station and Reptile Centre in particular.
Wonderful and informative half day tour of the Alice. A must do experience if in Alice Springs to get the full story and history of the area.

Excellent guide who showed us many interesting sights around Alice Springs
A must do when visiting Alice Springs. We were able to send a telegram from the original station. Good to know facts from the reptile centre. School of the air very impressive as is the flying doctors.
Very informative and very enjoyable. The driver was knowledgeable about the area and very helpful. I would definitely recommend it. We saw much more than we would have going around on our own.
Hits all the important historical places and more. We didn't expect a drive-through of the town, but we got that, too. Jim, our driver/guide, was wonderful.

At first I was skeptical about this tour and regretful about booking it as it took place in the afternoon however, at the end of the day I couldn't have asked for a better and more interesting tour. It visited the most interesting sites of Alice Springs including the reptile center, the post office, the school of the air, and the Royal flying doctor service. The tour ended at the veterans memorial monument that provided a panoramic view of Alice Springs making an enjoyable afternoon and a great introduction to Alice Springs.
Small tour of about 14 people. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable of the area. The School of the air was particularly excellent as was the flying doctor museum.
This was a very interesting day ---- especially liked visiting the School of the Air and the Royal Flying Doctors.
Very informative. Our guide was great! She gave us great insight into the culture and history of the aboriginal people. I loved this tour.
Excellent tour, the driver Graham was particularly friendly and knowledgeable. There was sufficient time at each of the attractions that we visited. To have done that on our own would have been much more difficult as we didn't have to worry about where places were. Great value trip.
very well organized trip! very informative. Our guides James and Eric are awesome!
After finishing at Uluru, we decided to spend a day at Alice Springs before heading down to Perth. Glad we did. Alice Springs is a little bit of the Wild West. Our guide Peter took us on an enjoyable ride to the old Telegraph Station: the headquarters of the Royal Flying Doctors Service: and even to the Reptile Park the crocodile show was super. It was a fun afternoon.
Our family enjoyed this tour. The bus was really comfortable and we managed to see quite a few things in just an afternoon. Our kids enjoyed learning about The School of the Air and the RFDS, and they really enjoyed the reptile center. It was nice to learn that although Australia has 20 of the 25 most poisonous snakes, it is really easy to avoid getting bit by a snake and surviving if you actually do. We also visited Telegraph Station and Anzac Hill so alot of ground was covered.
