Great Ocean Walk holiday in Victoria, Australia
Memorable parts? The first two days of the Great Ocean Walk; also the Atherton tablelands stay. Tips? Do some research into precisely what's offered on each trip - the Red Centre tour wasn't exactly what was predicted. Local benefits? Yes, except for Red Centre tour, which relied a lot on Aboriginal culture and settings, but seemed to involve no indigenous people. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Owers
From AU $2595 - AU $2795 excluding flights
Bibbulmun Track walking holiday in Western Australia
Memorable parts? Our guide, Dave, was extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the the countrside - birds, plants, weather, history - he helped us enjoy the spectacular lanscape. Tips? Just come with your eyes and mind open. Local benefits? Yes - this was an integral part of the operator's ethos. Overall rating? Excellent - just what we were looking for. (more)Kathy Hammond

Kimberley holidays in Western Australia
Memorable parts? Camping under the stars in Purnalulu National Park under the most amazing sky I have ever seen and being woken by dingoes howling and calling to each other in early morning. The wildflowers were everywhere. It was an amazing time to travel. Tips? Make sure you are fit enough to do all the walks so you can get the most out of it. Some require a good level of fitness and scrambling over rocks and boulders. Take good walking boots/shoes. Be prepared to rise early 5.00am.... (more)Wendy Muller

Uluru & Kings Canyon holiday
Memorable parts? Meeting the traveling group and getting to know their travel history and sharing ours. Also, sunset at Uluru was fantastic. Tips? Consider a day before and after this trip in Alice Springs. Local benefits? Somewhat. There wasn't much interaction with the aboriginals as expected. The food preparation and camping was good for the environment. Overall rating? Great - first trip with this operator and set a great tone with us for consideration for future...

Adelaide to Alice Springs tour, Australia
Memorable parts? The wonderful walks -- canyons, gorges, other natural features -- that revealed to us the natural riches of the Outback, from birds and other creatures to the land itself. Also... the bush knowledge and sensitivity of our leader, Steve. He added immeasurably to our appreciation, and therefore our pleasure. Tips? Probably more important for Europeans than Canadians or Americans (who live in big-scale countries): realize emotionally, not just intellectually, that once... (more)Penny Williams

Tasmania West coast tour
I am finally getting around to thinking about sending you some feedback on our trip. In general terms, we book tours in order to access places we wouldn’t get to ourselves and so that we get loads of enriching information about the places. I guess we were disappointed on both points. I think the only place we would have struggled to get to on the trip was Corinna and the lake camp on the last night. We could have got to the other places easily. Mick was especially disappointed that the only... (more)Lorrie Marchington
