    This was a once in a lifetime trip! We had excellent guides and the barbecue dinner was fantastic! It was a great help to know about bringing fly nets beforehand. My only comment was taking short hikes in the middle of the day. According to our guide, it was the hottest time of day! Thanks for all the extra water provided on the bus!

    A great day out, really glad we went on this trip. Was well organised and we felt looked after. There were healthy refreshments at nearly every stop and provided three really good meals throughout the day. If you are lucky enough to get Eddy as your tour guide it is truly the best experience. Eddy was so interesting to listen to and his knowledge of the areas we visited and the history made it so worth it.

    I think it is really important to explain to people coming to the area, that the cultural norms and expectations, especially around taking photos, are not what non-indigenous people might immediately understand. These places are NOT just tourist attractions, they are sacred sites. I found that some of my fellow travellers were missing this point, maybe even didn't want to know, and just wanted pretty pictures.
