The overall trip was very pleasant. The driver was knowledgeable and courteous.The fact we were able to get off the bus and walk around on our own was really worth the trip.

Educational and enjoyable. Could never have done it on our own without appropriate 4WD vehicle and experienced 4WD driver. Glad we went in winter. Only complaint is that local agent AAT Kings required confirmation call 24-48 hrs prior to excursion, and ours was booked on a Sunday, but their contact number only operated during business hours Mom-Fri. The local number given to call was in Austria, not Australia!

It was a very interesting tour. The walk at Palm Valley was a little difficult in parts and many thanks to our wonderful driver and guide, Dave, who helped us get up to the top and then down again. I think we were a bit optimistic about our mountain-climbing abilities but the view once we were up there was well worth it.

Very knowledgeable and friendly guide (Harry) and stunning views and scenery in the Valley. Great morning tea and good picnic. Highly recommended tour!

Spectacular scenery and magical colours! Having a guide who was so passionate about the area made for a very special experience.
