Patrick, our guide was fantastic - really knows his stuff, both culturally and geographically within the park itself. He really is the person to show you the park and surrounds - highly recommended. No problems at all with Patrick or the tour company. However, the Hummer is not the best vehicle to use for such a tour in my opinion. Why? Well, when you think Hummer you think big right? They are big on the outside but fairly cramped on the inside. Especially if you are put in the back seats like we were for half the tour. It was cramped and with restricted visibility. Not good when you are paying that sort of money. In my opinion, a van with easy access and good window viewing for everyone would be a better option.
Jeff gets a 5 star review for a 5 star tour! Jeff took us to all the sites and went out of his way to make sure the kids 8 and 11 were entertained and regaled! with his facts, stories and anecdotes to which they still recall weeks later. Great lunch option chosen which extended the day a bit, but nothing was too much trouble. All the best, Rob, Maree, Josh and Lachlan Sydney, Australia.
