“I went on this trip with a friend and we really enjoyed it! Tasmania has a lot to offer - rainforests as well as mountains and beaches. We were able to see a lot in just 6 days and our guide was awesome, thanks for this great experience!”

“Our tour is a group of twenty people. Majorities are Australians. We have good atmosphere and co-operations , especially in preparation and after our daily feedings. We have two tour leaders, nice and hard working guys. Niki is excellent cook.
Different landscapes. lakes and Bungle Bungles let you understand more about this wild Kimberley. If you like hiking,
swimming and drinking Champagne at the same time in the
Lake Agryle, go.”
