Wonderful and otherworldly! From beginning to end we had an extraordinary time.
A once in a lifetime experience! My wife and I will never forget it. Our driver, Michael, was entertaining, informed, opinionated and appreciated. Having him fill us in on the culture, art, plant and animal life of the region was quite comprehensive. Thank you Experience Oz and AAT Kings for putting it all together!
