It was a great family holiday, the tour guide Nick was very entertaining and very knowledgeable of the sites we visited. It was a fantastic experience, sleeping under the stars!

A really good tour that offers a variety of experiences and activities in different locations across the Northern Territory. Our Tour Guide could have been better not very interactive and quite patronising, he also turned ups an hour late on day one blaming vehicle issues but did not call us to tell us so we were up at 4am and stood outside our hotel for an hour wondering what was happening. Vehicle issues occurred again on the way home when he forgot to refuel and we broke down in the middle of the desert! No air con and completely isolated with minimal water. Even when we did get more fuel in the vehicle he then needed to bleed the fuel filter as running dry had let air in - not a great way to spend some of the day. Our biggest complaint was the lack of communication or information before the tour itself - what kit did we need? what would be provided? what facilities were there? If you do this tour then torches will be useful, as will fly nets, and drink containers that keep drinks cool.

Not worth the money by any means! Not enough blankets, food was mediocre, over rated. Would definitely NOT recommend
