Stop At: Simpsons Gap, Burt Plain NT 0872, Australia

    I went on this tour in December 2019. Sorry I didn't realise you could leave reviews otherwise I would have done so earlier. This is a fantastic trip, it was well spaced out with enough time at each place to get a feel for what we were looking at, take pictures etc. The guide we had was a delight and knowledgeable about anything on the northern territory. He spent the whole trip talking about things we were passing, the history of the area and passed on some local indigenous knowledge to us. Even gave me some advice on where else I can go/see on my trip to the Alice and Uluru. I will treasure this trip for a lifetime, I just wish I could remember our guides name. For other people going on trips like this-they pick you up and drop you off at your hotel and there is PLENTY of food provided at the various stops. I'd probably bring a hat, 1L water bottle, sunscreen and other essentials, though I'm pretty sure our tour bus had water too.

    Fantastic day full of history & beauty. Karen was our tour guide& driver & she was amazing. I could not have found & seen what we managed after driving many miles on my own. This is a perfect way to see as much as possible in a day.

    Bluey, the fountain of all knowledge. How lucky were we to not only have Bluey as a great driver but also the depth of knowledge he had about the geology and the Aranda people and their culture. We left immersed with knowledge. Thank you Bluey.

    'Bluey', our guide was fantastic. Lots of information, delivered in a great way to make your day fun, but also informative. We went to many gorgeous places, which when armed with the stories associated with them, provides you with a whole new appreciation and understanding of what you are seeing. Our day started off quite bleak and cool, but warmed up to a very enjoyable temp. The lunch was self made wraps, fresh and healthy, which I personally appreciated. Well done Emu Run Tours. We both really enjoyed the day.

    My partner and I booked onto this trip through the Alice Springs visitor centre. Emma was an incredible guide, so friendly and lovely to talk to, and constantly providing us with knowledge and insights into the wildlife throughout the day. It was super enjoyable and fun, and it’s always special when you can tell the guide loves what they’re talking about. Thank you again :)

    We were booked with another tour operator who let us down at the last minute. However, we were very happy to have been able to book into this tour through the Alice Springs Tourist Centre. It was a wonderful day in various locations of the Wes Macdonnell Ranges, and the tour guide and bus driver Emma was brilliant. She was very knowledgeable and highly personable and a credit to Emu Run Tours. I would definitely recommend this to tourists in Central Australia.
