'Bluey' was our guide. Great driver & so much local knowledge, having lived in Alice 47 yrs & tour guiding 35yrs. Bluey passed on much interesting history about the West McDonnell Ranges, also the vegetation, important explorers and figures that have made a huge positive impact on Alice Springs and surrounds.
Our 4x4 trip was an adventure; the 4x4 seating was comfortable.

Bluey had us laughing and smiling throughout the day. The all day 4x4 tour was fabulous and absolutely beautiful scenery - ever changing high orange/red rock formations, palm trees and ancient cycads.

Thank you Bluey for an incredible day!

We chose this tour because we'd heard the road into Palm Valley was rough, and we were very happy with our choice. Bluey was knowledgeable and engaging, and the 4WD truck was comfortable and perfect for the task. We loved the scenery and the walk and enjoyed Hermannsburg. All up a great day out.

Bluey was the most amazing knowledgeable, humorous , engaging storyteller ... His 4WDing wasn’t too bad either!

The Macdonnell Ranges adventure with my mate Bluey a couple of days before, left me in owe of the beauty and detail of the landscape, its history and it’s people
Great bloke 👍🌼

Our driver Bluey was full of stories ( 1 too many) & information about the area.. It was an amazing day. We were in a 4WD coach which Bluey dealt well with. Amazing location & so worth doing if you are in Alice Springs. We did 2 walks, which most people should be able to do. you could only go here if you had a 4WD. so this is a perfect tour for those who don't have a FWD

Perfect 4WD experience on all terrain vehicle. The driver has great character, professionalism and great digging skills! His knowledge of each area was fantastic. The food on offer was plentiful, the attraction had low visitor numbers which were perfect for absorbing the scenery.

We had a very professional Tour Guide. The tour was a great adventure and fun in terms of navigating thru the rough roads. Bluey, our tour guide showed expertise in the drive to and from the valley. I also gained a lot of information about the Valley, plants in the area etc. from him. He is a very knowledgeable and a professional tour guide and a larrikin too.

This was our favourite tour from Alice. We were not expecting such an exciting day driving along the Finke River with our driver, Bluey. He was so enthusiastic. It was a great trip ending in the beautiful views along Palm Valley. We were impressed with the way National parks had made the walks accessible to many without impacting on the natural environment. Despite being in a remote spot Bluey gave us a delicious lunch. Unfortunately my camera went into shock mode due to the rough terrain and I got no photos. Lucky my husband took some as well. We also enjoyed visiting the Hermansburg Mission and enjoyed their delicious strudel. Great trip!

We went on the tour in the 4WD bus with 15 people. Bluey had a vast knowledge of the places and history and we could feel his enthusiasm/passion of his local area in his voice. The places we visited were beautiful. We went through some rough and wet roads and he was so cool. The lunch was health and delicious. I would recommend 100% for this tour. Thanks Bluey!

We travelled in a 4WD small bus, which had new shock absorbers fitted, but the ride was still very uncomfortable. Luckily the bus was not full. While the commentary was reasonably informative, I have seen better on the way to Yulara, for example, where the driver was very knowledgable

I would have expected better commentary from AAT Kings. But everything else was good, the driving the program, the food.

Hi Eva317, thank you for the informative feedback. Will make sure that the Operations Team will hear this. Despite what happened, we do hope that it did not divert too much from what would have been a magical experience. Cheers
