This tour provides a wonderful outback experience, not to be missed.

Mick was an excellent guide. We were the only two and he made great use of the added flexibility that enabled. The stay in Arkaroola village and the ridge-top tour were highlights and a flight over the ranges was magnificent. We had a wonderful time with a great variety of experiences all enhanced by Mick's detailed knowledge.

Excellent.

Ben our Guide was very good: informative, flexible, safe driver, no problems.
