    Great tour, with excellent tour guide, Brett. He knew all relevant information regarding the areas visited. He was very professional, friendly and helpful and was a very experienced 4WD driver, especially on some of the rough tracks. All of the sites visited were well worth visiting, especially Palm Valley and Hermansburg

    Awesome experience, especially combined with the visit to Hermannsburg for morning tea, and their lunch provisions were delicious. The bus ride was an experience in itself: I knew it was a high clearance 4WD only trip, and the energetic ride proved it! However, Dave’s expert navigation over the Finke River bed and the rocky terrain made sure we stayed in one piece .
