    The day was very fast paced, to no avail. It felt pressured and hurried in the morning, yet, despite a breakdown and a deviation, we were back in Alice by 5.00 pm for first drop off. I would not advise it as a tour, due to hurried nature of guide, which removed the enjoyment and presence of the walk and of being in and seeing Hermannsburg and the palm valley. A little more time to breathe and enjoy the surrounding would have added enormous value to the day, given we were back in Alice with plenty of time to spare. I will not recommend it to fellow travelers, despite the safety and driving skills of the driver - guide.

    Our tour guide, Myles, was a very skilled driver with a wealth of knowledge and an obvious commitment to his passengers experiencing the best possible outing on the day. It was well-paced and he ensured that allowances were made for different levels of fitness and interests within our group. Our picnic lunch too was very good.

    Hermansburg visit was wanting. Guide did not prepare group with much information about what was to be seen until handing out brochures when we actually got there. Then was stressing the need to leave promptly. Lunch was great. Palm Springs was a little under whelming considering the rough slow journey to get there. Would better to offer a separate Hermansburg tour for those mainly interested in visiting there.
