From Alice Springs: Palm Valley 4WD Outback Safari + Picnic
- Pickup available
- Duration: 10.5 hours
The day was very fast paced, to no avail. It felt pressured and hurried in the morning, yet, despite a breakdown and a deviation, we were back in Alice by 5.00 pm for first drop off. I would not advise it as a tour, due to hurried nature of guide, which removed the enjoyment and presence of the walk and of being in and seeing Hermannsburg and the palm valley. A little more time to breathe and enjoy the surrounding would have added enormous value to the day, given we were back in Alice with plenty of time to spare. I will not recommend it to fellow travelers, despite the safety and driving skills of the driver - guide.
Our tour guide, Myles, was a very skilled driver with a wealth of knowledge and an obvious commitment to his passengers experiencing the best possible outing on the day. It was well-paced and he ensured that allowances were made for different levels of fitness and interests within our group. Our picnic lunch too was very good.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I and another were gluten free and there was no option for that. I do not recall being asked about this at the time of registering on-line. It would be helpful to have this. Thank you.
A fantastic day and our guide Chris was excellent. Little touches like morning tea added to a wonderful experience. We learnt so much from Chris about each location.
Spectacular scenery and magical colours! Having a guide who was so passionate about the area made for a very special experience.
