Rick was a fantastic guide and driver. We loved every bit of our trip, particularly the insight we gained from indigenous guides and the amazing rock art and wonderful bird life.. Kakadu, Nitmiluk and Litchfield experiences were wonderful and Rick adjusted experiences as required. The group was a great mix of people and the tents were quite comfortable. It was fun organising the meals together. Thank you Rick we had a great time, especially seeing the jabirus and red tailed cockatoos.

The itinerary of the tour was very informative, but was a bit concerned regarding facilities provided, but WOW! Our tour guide Candice was outstanding. There were 15 in our “mob” and Candice was so enthusiastic about the area you could tell she loved it, and that made it enjoyable for all of us. The facilities that I was concerned about turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Great value. Thank you!

We had the very best holiday. There actually isn't anything that we would change. The itinery was well thought out, the truck was comfortable and the tented accomodation above what we anticipated with in terms of amenities and comfort.The various water falls we visited were truly beautiful. However, the real magic of this tour was the hard working tour guide, Rick.. He had the logistics sorted and each day ran smoothly and to plan. But his real gift is the combination of his natural story telling ability coupled with a deep knowledge and obvious affection for the place, its people and culture, especially the indigenous culture. His other gift was the deft way he handled the whole group with humour, patience and respect. Other people to note are the two other guides for various aspects, Dani who guided our boat on the Corroboree Billabong. - she is "of that place" and she was generous in sharing that with us. Likewise, indigenous Njanjma ranger guide Sebastians time with us on his country showing us the art of his ancestors was a great privilege and one we will forever remember.

We had a fantastic tour of the Top End and Arnhem Land with of awesome tour guide Elliott. He shared his knowledge of the area and cultural diversity and was very helpful, happy and always up for a good laugh. The meals provided were of a very good standard and options were always given. The sights that were highlighted throughout the 5 days were exceptional - although at times physically challenging - but worth the extra effort to reach the end goal of beautiful gorges and/or swimming billabongs.. The small group of 11 others were also part of the overall experience with everyone enjoying each others company and assisting each other over the boulders and other obstacles that were faced while exploring the great outdoors! Would highly recommend this tour to others with a sense of adventure!!

This trip is fantastic value for money. We covered a huge area, visited many key sites including having the benefit of a local indigenous guide at a special site, stayed in comfortable accomodation and had the most wonderful tour guide in Rick. Rick is one of a kind - knowledgeable, cheerful. extremely well-informed, always prepared to go the extra mile for us. We learned an enormous amount and had a brilliant time.
