What to Expect

The itinerary for this tour and all the sights you see are spectacular and the tour group was friendly and nice. However, if you are looking to see the sights while still enjoying a decent sleep and shower, then this isn’t the tour for you. The campsites are actually just at…

When the itinerary you get when you book this tour is so different from the experience you get with this company, you could ask WTF? So we did, ask the company, and like other reviewers we got excuses, platitudes, and lots of words around "misalignment of expectations" etc. We…

It may not be suitable unless you are used to camping where restroom facilities are a 10 min walk in the dark or too few for the number of campers. You arrive and depart campgrounds after dark. Prepare to rise very early, minimal continental breakfast, very little time for…

Response from StaceyH_Feedback, Wayoutback Australian Safaris at 4-Day 4WD Camping Tour: Uluru, Kata Tjuta, and Kings Canyon
Responded 6 Jun 2019
Dear RainbowTraveller_11, Thank you for sharing your detailed feedback following your recent Wayoutback Tour. I am sorry to see that some aspects of your tour have not met your expectations and I welcome you to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss your concerns further. While we make every effort to be clear about our products the reality of the outback, while beautiful, is indeed rugged and remote with enduring red dirt and long distances between destinations however our offering is not intended to be a luxury experience, rather an authentic outback camping adventure. I can appreciate that the long days and busy itinerary can be tiring however as many of our passengers will experience this area once in their lifetime we make every effort to include as many attractions as reasonable fits in the time available. Experiencing sunrise and sunset is an iconic experience and while it does mean arriving and departing campsites in the dark passengers usually agree that it's worth it. I'm sorry to hear that you found the sleeping arrangements and vehicle uncomfortable; our linen, sleeping bags and mattresses are regularly cleaned, inspected for damage and replaced as necessary. Similarly our 4WD vehicles are purpose built for tackling the Top End and as such they won't offer the same facilities as a coach would, however they are regularly maintained and meet all requirements set by the local NT Government. Finally I can clarify that in addition to the Royal Flying Doctor service there are medical clinics located at Yulara and Kings Canyon Resort. Our guides are all first aid trained and carry satellite phones at all times should emergency medical attention be required. Once again thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, while it is always disappointing to hear that we have not met a passengers expectations your comments allow us to continually improve the quality of our products
