An adventure for life! Great way to explore the beautiful Uluru, Katja Tjuta, Kings Canyon and a lot of other places. Sunset and sunrise. Camp life and swag sleeping under the stars - yeah, yeah, yeah. And we were very lucky having Margret as guide, driver and tour leader.

Dear Stephen, Thank you for your fantastic review. It sounds like you really made the most of your time on tour and picked up a few of the quirks of territory life (never trust a Territorian when they say "just around the corner"!!!!) It's great to hear that you were so well looked after by Phil and I know he will appreciate you taking the time to recognise his efforts. Thanks again and we hope you enjoy the rest of your travels
