Knowledgeable, outgoing, supportive, and hilarious tour guides and tour drivers that demonstrated a unique passion for their country and created a great atmosphere for the entire 19 day trip! Both Cam and Patty (along with the trainees Lucy and Rae) collectively made the entire trip worthwhile and enjoyable.

This trip was an experience of a lifetime. I loved the whole thing. Everything was really well planned and organised so I had to worry about nothing which was great. I always knew where I had to be and when which helped me to relax on this trip.

The knowledge and expertise of our manager and driver were next to none. They provided us with great insights of amazing locations and made sure our experience was the best possible. The me time options were perfect for each location and catered for everyone, I'd highly recommend this trip for anyone who wants to get out of their comfort zone and enjoy some thrills.

I feel it was definitely worth the money I paid for it as I was getting both islands in one trip. Accommodation, most meals and other add ons all included.
