      This tour was amazing! We saw a lot of beautiful and different landscapes along the way and we did some really cool activities in those 10 days, including some hikes, surfing, sandboarding, swimming with dolphins and sealions, wave hunting and drinking at breweries/wineries! Our guide Jackson is a really cool and easy-going guy who gave us really useful information about the things we saw and also about the Aboriginal culture! The fact that Jackson wasn't just the guide but also really part of our group made it really fun and personal! I'd definitely recommend this tour!

      Trip of a lifetime...exceptional tour guide
      Jackson is truly a gem – brimming with energy, an extraordinary cook, and an exceptional motivator. His passion for spearfishing gifted us with the rare delight of fresh, expertly prepared fish on our tour. Beyond his skills, Jackson's kindness, compassion, and adaptability make him a standout guide. Eagerly anticipating the next adventure with Jackson, where the destination is secondary to the memorable journey he crafts for those with open minds!

      Best tour in Australia! The tourguides, activities and environments are all the best I've ever had.
      First of all, I'd like to say that there's absolutely nothing that could've made this trip better. A big round of applause for Dan and Emily who were my tourguides for this trip. Dan's knowledge about all the plants, rocks animals and cultural experiences blew me away. As smart as he is, he's also very funny and is a very social guide and always a good laugh for the whole group. Emily's experience for her age is very impressive and I'm very lucky to have had both on my tour. All the days were filled with loads of activities and I'm impressed with the quality of the activities even earlier in the tour. The Flinders Ranges blew me away and was a very good start for this trip. Cooker Pedy has such an unique vibe to it and was well worth the time. And of course the last part of the tour: Kings Canyon, Kata Tjuta and Uluru were beyond gorgeous. I recommend this trip to literally anyone and it's well worth the money.

      Untamed Escapes provided a rejuvenating 4-day yoga retreat with excellent plant-based cuisine, diverse activities like winery visits, hiking, and daily yoga. Our friendly guide, Steve, added to the positive experience, making it a well-rounded and immersive escape. Highly recommended for those seeking a blend of wellness and adventure.

      Tour packed to the brim with knowledge and fun!
      Our guide Dan was full of knowledge of all wildlife. He pointed out and named all the creatures in our surrounds. It was an epic adventure. Even though we didn’t get to participate in the koala activity (because the station closes in the summer) we were allowed to stay at the station and got heaps of good photos of the koalas. Only the wine tasting activity was surprisingly the most disorganised and rushed which is a shame as I was looking forward to it, and had higher expectations of an SA winery. All the other activities were adventurous and informative. That coupled with Dan’s Aussie larrikin style made it all a real treat. Thank you for the memories untamed escapes !!

      once in a lifetime adventure!
      We had an absolute blast on the „Adelaide to Uluru“-tour!!! We had a fun group from all over and with mixed ages. Our tourguide Dan made sure everyone had a good time (and was safe), he‘s fun to be around and VERY knowledgable about wildlife, aboriginals and aussie-culture. When things didn’t went according to plan Dan stayed calm and fixed the situation. We saw heaps of wildlife and got great informations about flora and fauna along the way. The hikes were rather easy if you‘re medium fit, but be prepared for the heat - we were lucky with very moderate temps in December. see ya all in Kakadu with Johnny!

      A dream coming true, with an amazing tour (guide and group). Highly recommended for those who want to see the outback!
      This tour was truly amazing and actually exceeded my expectations in so many ways! Seeing the various natures of the outback, sleeping under the stars, the most stunning sunrises and -sets in different places, learning about the various indigenous communities in the outback, holding a baby kangaroo (!!), and so many more things I could say. Most people in the group felt like family after only 8 days and our tour guide Joseph (Joe) was absolutely fantastic. Made us feel safe, we shared a lot of laughs, had a lot of (fun) facts about the places we crossed, took us on amazing hikes, and handled unexpected situations very well. Also the food quality was above expectations and really good catering for coeliacs like myself and other allergies/ dietary preferences (our group had 2 coeliacs, four vegetarians, a vegan, one nut allergy and one shellfish allergy, and everything went well and everyone had delicious food). Also, we had a very long drive (16 hours instead of 2.5 hours) on day 4 due to road closures because of heavy (unexpected) rainfall, but both Joe and the group only saw the positive side of that (now we got to see even more of SA ;)), which really heightened the group spirit. Too bad we had some passengers in the group that really did not know that they signed up for a camping trip (or even read the itinerary/ inclusions/ exclusions at all), where you sleep in REAL swags, help the guide with preparing the meals and the cleanups after, and not always have the possibility to charge your phone without a powerbank. Also, some did not quite understand that you have to have some kind of fitness level, as there are hikes for up to 10K that are real bush hikes, where you have to carry up to 3L of water and get up early (4AM) to not be walking in the extreme heat of the day. It affected the experience of the rest of the group in some way, but I think our tour guide handled the situations with these high maintenance people very well. Conclusion: this trip is 10/10 recommended if you want to see and learn a lot of the outback of Australia and get to know the culture, enjoy some basic camping and hikes up to 10K in the bushes, are willing to roll up your sleeves, and don't mind long drives and shorter nights. Also a recommendation: carefully read all the information that is presented on the website ;).

      Review with advice
      Having always dreamed about exploring Australia I had high hopes and expectations and I received more than I could have expected. The beauty of Australia and its nature seen from hiking trails and lookouts, sleeping under the stars, sunrises and sunsets in stunning places were so rewarding. Moreover I appreciated the knowledge about nature and indigenous communities shared by our guide Joe. The unexpected highlight were the meals, I genuinely thought that with so many places to be seen and things to be done we will grab something on the go, but the food was so good even though we had quite many people with dietary restrictions. I think that we were lucky with our guide, he made me feel safe in the wild and have fan at the same time. The adventure trips are definitely my thing. And here comes my advice, you should read carefully the trip description and before coming you should prepare your self accordingly. Our guide had to spend a lot of time with 2 high maintenance passengers that probably hadn't read what the trip entailed. I hope that they had a good time as well, but they weren’t fit and prepared for the trip and it showed all the time influencing experience of the rest of the group. Don’t get me wrong the trip wasn’t that demanding and you need be able to hike for 2-3 hours a day carrying your water on easy to moderate trails. Just if you rather see your self in 5* resort than preparing shared meal by the trailer than consider if this experience is for you 😉. For me I’m already planing to come back to Australia and having another adventure trip in other part of the country.

      Adelaide to Perth - the adventure family
      Couldn’t wish for a better way to spend my first 10 days in Australia with the Adelaide to Perth trip. The adventure family group was the best! Our tour guide (Brendan) taught us a lot about Australia with his amazing story telling. We saw some of the most beautiful beaches of Australia. I really loved the surfing, campfires, campfire songs, hikes and last but not least the amazing food. Oh and Brendan was definitely right, I missed my swag the first nights in the hostel in Perth. I would definitely recommend the Adelaide to Perth trip.

      Amazing 10 days
      This tour has been absolutely amazing and was so much fun. You see fantastic landscapes, swim, hike, sit around camp fires and much more. The 10 days seemed to be over quickly. The people on the tour were great and we became one big family. Our guide Brendan was the best; very knowledgeable, he kept us entertained with fun and informative stories about geology, people, history and the solar system. And to top it off, we had very tasty dinners worth of any gourmet restaurant. Simply the best tour I've ever been on.

    This trip was amazing! I had the best time! And as a solo traveller it was a great bunch with a mixture of people who were all so lovely! The tour was packed full and I think it could be even better if it was a 4 day tour to fit a bit more in and spend a little longer at places. The guides were amazing and food was so good and dietary needs were SO well catered for! Would highly recommend!

    What an amazing trip this was! Our guide Emily was super knowledgable about nature and its plants, animals, and all that stuff, which made this tour even exceed its expectations! The group was a good mix and the itinerary was just right: seeing the highlights of KI, doing some walks, spotting loads of wildlife, but also chilling at the beautiful beaches and visiting local businesses. Also loved the KI recovery initiative and conservation work, giving meaning to this experience. Plus, having our own campground but with all facilities needed was amaze. Can only recommend this tour to anyone!
