Palm Valley Tour

Hi, I consider myself well travelled (been around the world 6 times in my past 80 years). I consider yesterdays Palm Valley Tour a trip of a lifetime. A fantastic operator, highly skilled female driver over very demanding terrain (4wd river crossings, along dry river beds etc).The food was terrific, the locale breathtakingly beautiful. No matter where in the world you come from, whatever age you are, DO THIS TRIP before you die! ROSS M MALCOLM
