Just to give you some feedback on our recent trip to the Kimberleys. We thoroughly enjoyed it, except for the mosquitos. The tour guide Paddy is very knowledgeable and shared with us as much info as he can. Everything went well. The people we met were also friendly and helpful. We met some wonderful people during the 9 day trip. Can be extended to 12 days.
Thankyou for organizing such an amazing tour. One of the best holidays I have ever had. my partner enjoyed it as much also. A special thanks to Evo, he would be Australia’s best tour guide. Cheers Martin
Hi. We really enjoy the trip although our english is very bad. It is probably the nicest tour we have never done. All was perfect and our guide and driver, Greg, is great.

I don’t have facebook so replying the “old fashioned” way. Our trip was fantastic. Rob was an excellent guide. His enthusiasm, passion and expertise absolutely made the trip for us. We learned so much and had a great time doing it. We’ve both fallen in love with the top end and want to come back in the wet to better understand how the place changes – it really is an amazing place.
Back in Germany, we would like to give our feedback on the 9 day Kimberley Backpacker tour from Darwin to Broome (Departure Date 4/6/14).
The tour was absolutely fantastic. EVERYTHING was perfect from the pick up to the drop off. Our tour guide Adam was the best we could possibly have. He is absolutely excellent in all skills (communication, knowledge of the area, motivation, attention etc.) and made the tour a wonderful experience for us. He is a very valuable staff member for you! We will definitely recommend the tour to others and would love to go on one of the tours again if we return to Australia.
With best regards,
Edeltraud + Uwe Koehler
I would like to say that the 4 day safari was the most memorable time of our visit to Australia. Dave. our tour guide, was very knowledgeable about being in the bush. No question was too dumb for him. He was a very careful driver as he coaxed the 4 WD over some very rough country. Forward facing seats made for a comfortable journey over the 1600 odd kilometers we travelled. Getting up close to the salt water crocodiles as amazing. The camps we comfortable and the menu well thought out. There was no food shortages. It was a great trip and I can thoroughly recommend this company to anyone thinking of such a safari
Kind regards Don
The tour was fabulous. Loved the Aboriginal wall paintings, Crocodile Dundee wetlands view and swimming in the rock pools, even though the climb (as an old bloke) nearly finished me. Accommodation by the billabong exceeded expectations; comfortable mattress and even hot water. I thought I would be pitching my own tent. Brad was an excellent guide, a fount of information and always concerned for the welfare of everyone. He made our Darwin adventure. As you can see; a very happy customer, along with my wife – could not fault it.
Best wishes and thanks.
Pam and Chris Murray
Many thanks for arranging this tour at such short notice.
It truly was a great trip and we would definitely recommend it to our friends and families.
The accommodation at Kakadu was fantastic. Kel, our guide was very knowledgeable, helpful and he worked very hard to ensure everyone had a great time.
Kind regards. Diane and Mario – Australia
Hi, I did have an enjoyable time . The river cruise was vert rewarding. It was wonderful seeing all the wild life and beautiful scenary. The tour guide was amusing and knowledgeable. The food and accommodation was fine except for the mosquitos at the camp site. Could I suggest offering mosquito nets. The little I saw of Kakadu national park was spectacular. also our driver/tour guide Ren had a lot of knowledge about Kakadu and the Australian bush and Indigenous peoples and their culture. He was also a safe driver. Regards, Anne.
We had an absolutely fabulous time – 10/10. We camped in amazing places, had so much fun with our fellow travellers and experienced every kind of weather and conditions! The walks at Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon were amazingly beautiful. I will keep an eye on other tours on offer for the future!
Cheers Helen – UK
Thanks for the 2-day Kangaroo Island Tour. We had a blast! The food, tours, accommodation’s were excellent.
But our tour guide, Sandy, was the best! She truly went out of her way to be informative, adaptable, professional, safe cautious and friendly. Thanks, Sandy!
Barbara, Katya & Elian – USA
We would give it a 9! It was a fantastic tour and made all the better thanks to Kate our tour guide who was wonderful and made it not only enjoyable but informative.

I have done too many tours to count. This is my first perfect feedback ever given. You have an incredible asset to your team and made us feel like he was always going the extra mile and making our trip unique and special, which it was.
Kobie – UK
We’d give it a 10 – Luke did a great job in keeping us entertained and we had a whale of a time! Would recommend it.
Best wishes from Hobart,

Here my feedback to the KI/Tour:
Rating: 7 (out of 10)
I liked the group size (7), there was plenty of space in the van and also the preparation of the meals were easier than in a bigger group. Overall we had enough time for the spots – only for the Seal Bay the time we had was too short. The guide, Jason, has done a good job – only the driving on the streets was sometimes a bit nervous (especially in the evening). Jason has a good knowledge of the Island and is very helpful – thanks again.
Cheers Franziska – Switzerland
The Kangaroo Island Tour was amazing!!!
I could really recommend this tour to everybody.It was so much fun! Thanks
Denise – Germany
9/10 – was good with a small group.
Kathryn – Australia
The Kangaroo Island Tour was simply great.. Me and my wife really enjoyed those two days..
We rate the tour 10/10.. The guide was very well prepared and we meet a lot of interesting people..
Fabio & Miriam – Italy
My 2 day KI safari tour was amazing! Our guide Bob had tons of knowledge about the area he was loads of fun too! The food was great, the accomidation was good and the price was the absolute best! I loved this tour so much, I recommended this tour to everyone I came into contact with!!
Adriana – USA.
This tour was great !
We saw many beautiful lansdcapes, many wild animals and Tony, the always smiling guide, was really nice and eager to answer to all of our questions !
The accomodation was warm and quiet, and the food was pretty good (especially the breakfast).
The only bad point was the weather, and the fact that we ate sandwitches in a cold place with a lot of wind and rain. It would be better to have lunch in a dry place.
We would rate 8.
Claire and Bruno – France
8/10. We had a great time. Bob was an excellent guide. There was a little bit of a mixup with the bus not being dropped off at KI (so we had to use a Sealink bus, which was fine). Also, a little more accuracy on the hotel pickup would have been nice. We were ready at 6:15a… but the bus didn’t arrive until almost 7am.
Overall, though, we had a lot of fun.
Ken and Colleen – UK
I’d generally give a good feedback for the tour as I really enjoyed it!!
Our tour guide Simon was really good and you could see that he definitely liked his job and was very eager in explaining everything to us! so thumbs up for him!!
Some ideas to consider from my end would be: definitely get everyone a torch light or head lamp – long ways to toilets def make this necessary in the dark!
If there would also be the possibility to rent towels and not only sleeping bags would be a help too.
Provide a more detailed itinerary to the participants before leaving! it was worth getting up early but I think would just be more helpful to know in advance to also pack all your things differently as packing in the dark is not really enjoyable! 😉
Also helpful would be a recommendation of clothes to bring – especially during the winter months…
Just some thoughts from my end… overall it was a really great experience and I would definitely recommend the tour to others!
Katrin – Germany
I had an excellent time on the 3 day Ayers Rock tour.
The guide (Rhett) was really informative and friendly and played guitar around the camp fire both nights.
I thought the itinerary was good. The only thing that I think could have been improved was the payment for the sleeping bags. I think it would be easier for everyone if the payment could be added on-line to save the guides having to ask for the money from the guests whilst on the tour.
Otherwise had a great time and would recommend it to friends.
Jess – UK
The trip was great and I would rate it an 8.
The food was great, scenery fantastic and guide was awesome.
I would however have a few critical observationsÉ.there were too many people from 1 country and I was disappointed that they all spoke German. I was 1 of 3 people who spoke English. All others spoke German which isolated the guide and us 3. Try to get diversity in the bookings.
Also, I was not happy that I was booked through a agent. I thought Travel Wild was the operator. I was quite confused and to add to it I was shifted from 1 operator to another on the last day. Very unprofessional in my opinion.
James – Canada
I came back Sunday evening from the tour, and it was great: I really enjoyed the walks, the campfire, the nights in the swags under the wonderful sky, the food cooked on the fire, and of course all these rocks.
And the guide was really good too, very active and enthusiastic, always explaining what we were up to, so thank you very much for the trip and the great price!
Lucie – France
Yes we really enjoyed the tour, our rate is 9, so great natural sites visited in a cool way wiht rigth explanations. And lived in bush / desert with a real enthousiamic guide, perfect adventure with beautiful night in the swag.
Well done and keep it simple.
Claude – France
I give it a 9/10.
Lorenza and I had a fantastic time. I enjoyed the fact there was a small group and we had very basic but good eating and sleeping arrangements. I love falling asleep looking up at the stars and eating a roo stew from a camp oven. The fact that we also weren’t crowded by other tours all the time was excellent.
Lorenza being from Italy loved the fact we saw an enormous amount of wildlife in its natural habitat as well as Uluru, Kata Tjuta and King’s Canyon which she said was a dream come true.
Our guide Belinda was very knowledgeable and fun. She was extremely capable and able to adapt well to all the different needs and personalities on the trip. She introduced us to fauna and flora up close and gave us informative talks on local history, local Indigenous culture and dreamtime stories and geology.
I would totally recommend this tour to others and even do another tour with the same company. It was good value for money and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Cheers Jo – Australia
We had a great time on the tour thanks. The walks were the right level and the drives were broken up well, plenty of rest/food stops. The food was great and the campsite facilities were surprisingly good.
What really made the tour for all of us in the group was the guide, Katie. Smart, funny and extremely capable, she is a true polymath, good at everything she does from changing a tyre to discussing literature with a group member. Please pass on our sincere thanks to her.
Whatever you are paying this woman, it is not enough.
Regards, Helen & Randall – UK
We are back at work now and missing the sunshine and open spaces in NT.
We really enjoyed our Kakadu tour. Barney was fantastic and everyone in our group got on really well. We’d be keen to repeat the trip again at a different time of year e.g. June after the wet.
We’ll have a look at the Facebook page now.
Julie & Mark- Australia
The tour was absolutely fantastic. That’s a 10!!!!
The guide was fun, knowledgeable and very helpful and friendly, the places we went to were amazing – all of them. Food was also very good. More than I expected on a “rough” tour – I especially enjoyed daily fruit and cookie breaks.
The only tiny thing was I expected it to be bush camping without any facilities and we had camps with heated showers (needless to say flushing toilets as well) every night. A lot of the others on the tour said the same thing. Of course, that wasn’t a problem – just differed from our expectations.
You might want to consider somehow adding this to your brochure. People who don’t particularly like the idea of bush camping might consider booking if they knew …
Thanks for a fantastic tour!
