extraordinary experience September 2018

I finished my 22 day tour from Darwin to Perth on the 1st September and I am still re-living every element of this extraordinary experience each day. I want to do it all over again straight away. Dan, our driver, guide and chef was an absolute gem. His energy and enthusiasm was infectious and he gave everyone the confidence to take on the challenging hikes we did throughout the breathtaking gorges and canyons of the Kimberley and Karijini. His support on these hikes was heart warming as it made it possible to do everything on offer.Swimming in the waterholes and showering in waterfalls was an absolute highlight. Dan ensured we made the most of every day doing more than was on the itinerary. Our meals were terrific - healthy, tasty and enjoyed by everyone in our group. I was amazed at the effort Dan made to provide for all of the special dietary needs of passengers. He treated everyone with kindness and patience at all times. This was only my second group tour ever and the first in Australia. I would highly recommend this tour as it is so much easier to sit back and enjoy the journey as well as the spectacular destinations. Not driving, meant I went to places I wouldn't have gone if I was in my own vehicle. The wonderful commentary and story telling adds to the experience. As an older passenger I wasn't interested in being on a tour with only retirees and older people. The mixed age group was an important element of its great success for me. I noticed that other tours, that are much more expensive, went to the same car parks and camping grounds but the passengers were not going as far into the gorges as we did. Often they were just going to lookouts and viewing from above. They may not have slept in swag's some nights but that was their loss too. Nothing like staring into the brilliant night sky. This tour was great value for money. If you're thinking about it just do it - I am sure you will love it.

Just got back from a tour in the Top End with the legendary Scotty ! Besides being highly knowledgable and passionate about the places we visited, this guy went above and beyond to accomodate everyone's needs. Including mine as a Kosher observant.

I'm really speechless. It was an amazing tour, seeing all the good spots the top end has to offer ! Thank you, thank you, will definitely recommend to a friend.

Just got back off the 3 day Rock to Rock tour and the worst bit about this tour is that it ended. I had the best timem my tour leader, B, was fantastic! She was so enthusiastic and happy about everything. Always smiling even at 4.45am. She got us pumped up about every activity and was a wealth of knowledge!
I took this trip as it was my nans dream and sadly she passed. I brought a photo of nan with me to get a photo of her and me at Uluru. I explained this to B and not only did she take a photo but she went above and beyond to make it special with different photo ideas, toasting nan and even pouring her her own drink! She spoke to and about nan as if she were. This trip was truly magical. Everything i could have hoped for and more. Betina is a true asset to your company and i have no doubt that this trip would not have been as good if it wasnt for her!

From beginning to end it was a unforgettable tour through the National Parks in the Top End. Was surrounded by the best group of people for the 5 days of camping, swimming, hiking, etc. I highly recommend booking your tours with Adventure Tours. � I have nothing negative to report. �
Our guide Ringer was friendly, knowledgeable, hilarious and passionate guide. Top bloke � You would be very lucky to have him as a guide.

My family and I have just done the three day tour of Uluru and Kings Canyon in NT. Our tour guide Rachael and host Tahnee were fabulous. We found the whole trip enjoyable, the accommodation was great, the food lovely, tasty and plentiful. They were both superb with my cousin who was a none English speaking French man. The whole time a huge amount of effort went in to making the whole group (18 of us in total) feel welcome, comfortable and encouraged to enjoy the whole trip.....
Well done and I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Stride Review

In the early 90s Adventure Tours Australia was conceived, as a way to help new travelers to Australia visit the farther reaching attractions of the country, such as Uluru.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Culturally rich, adventurous tours and local expertise. They strive to show travelers “the real Australia”. They specialize in wildlife and indigenous culture tours. Their guides have a collective two decades of experience traveling around the the vast country, and it’s many different often harsh environments. Their tours are eco conscious, and almost all have an element of camping involved.

Who Travels With Them?

Their trips tend to skew younger, especially given the two types of accommodation range from Camping to Basic. They often host families and single or solo travelers. No single supplement is required for those solo travelers open to rooming with someone of the same gender - if you prefer a room to yourself, they can often offer this for a supplement.

Where Do They Operate?

Their tours operate throughout Australia, including Tasmania. They have multiple kinds of tour, including short breaks, overland, and city explorations.

How Does it Work?

Trips fall under two main categories: “Basix” and “Original”. Each is fairly rustic in nature. Transportation is via 4WD or minibus. All trips are conducted in as eco conscious a manner as possible.

Why Travel With Them?

They are perfect for young adventurous travelers interested in seeing Australia from a local point of view. If you enjoy camping, getting to know other travelers, and feeling completely immersed in your location, they are the tour company for you.

Why Travel With ATA?

Informative and immersive, our tours are for those looking to develop a true-blue understanding of Australia’s inner workings – and have a cracker of a time while at it. Take one comfy 4WD or minibus, a knowledgeable guide, a bunch of fellow adventurers and you’re all set for the Outback. The whole outfit is much more road trip than it is your standard charter bus tour.

Below are some of the features that go into making the Adventure Tours Australia (ATA) difference.

Expert Guides
We’re the only small group company with an in-house guides
training program. Each of our trip leaders has had comprehensive
training in first aid, driving, fatigue management, environmental
awareness and local history and geology.

Indigenous Experiences
The close working partnerships we’ve established with Indigenous
communities continue to inform our understanding of the land, as
well as inspire in our travellers an appreciation for one of the world’s
oldest living cultures.

Exclusive Accommodation
Unique and exclusive accommodation is all part of the ATA experience.
Travelling with us you could be staying on Indigenous-owned land in Cape
York, private wilderness camps in the Top End, underground bunkhouses
in Coober Pedy or an island safari camp off the Kimberley coast.

Flight & Tour Packages
Want to see both the Top End and Red Centre but not too keen
on long driving days? We’ve packaged together some of our most
popular trips with included flights and airport transfers. This also
means you can get all around Australia by simply sticking with us.
