Great mixed day

Kirsty was great. Talked through the sights with everyone and dealt with everyone’s physical abilities and personal choices really well. Would 100% do it again. Winter means that usually the flies are gone but a very hot summer means tbeh’ve Stuck around. So definitely need a fly net and some sun cream. If you can, go for swims. It’s lovely. All walks are doable for all ages and abilities. Water is provided on board but if you have a strong taste bud for the treatment materials, bring a big bottle for yourself.

Disappointing

My trip was booked with Emu Run but diverted to AAKings as not enough takers.The trip was fine, good driver over horrendous roads. Two walks, not too difficult. The major letdown, and it was a big one, was that while Emu Run was prepared, and did, pick me up at my door, Kings needed me to get to a motel about 2k away at 6.30am. Unfortunately I was also dropped at this motel on return in spite of my asking the driver to take me on a further 2k. I am 82 and had been up for 12 hours and another walk so far was not acceptable. The driver insisted he would lose his job if he took me further.Whether this is company policy or the decision of the individual driver I do not know but in any event was very unimpressed and would not recommend AAKings

Fantastic day out.

I got the tickets for cheap as they were having a discount. So for the price it was super worth it! Meals are provided and adequate. The tour guide was really funny and informative. He was definitely knowledgeable and could answer your questions from the history of Alice Springs, to the dreaming stories of the ranges. The locations visited were really beautiful. There were 3 waterholes that you can swim in but the water is very cold and deep! There were people doing jumps from some of the lower cliffs and it looked so fun! It was super refreshing especially after the walks in the sun. The hikes are pretty easy and short, definitely manageable for children or elderly. Met some great people as well on the trip. Shout out to Matt from Scotland!! (My parallel universe scotland living me XD) It was really nice meeting you and all the best back home and your future travels. :)
