The overall trip was very pleasant. The driver was knowledgeable and courteous.The fact we were able to get off the bus and walk around on our own was really worth the trip. I enjoyed being able to walk on my own and take pictures as I pleased. The bus was very roomy and clean. I did get a little concerned when we were driving into Finke Gorge, seemed a bit of a bumpy ride but, we made it! Overall I would recommend this tour and would do it again.
Great day: tours guide was knowledgeable and very helpful. Good driving into The Valley over rough terrain. Each stop was just right in terms of time. Not normally a tour type person but really enjoyed the day!
