I can't praise Tess and Gregg enough. They are a dynamic duo who put their heart and soul into their country and business. They deliver a tour with enthusiasm, energy, education and earn the love of their clients. By far, this was da best tour we took in AU/NZ. From the beginning to the end, we were learning about the...

After a fabulous tour to Litchfield in September Tess and Greg were gracious enough to agree to take us to Kakadu the following day. Kakadu is a long way for a day trip therefore Greg and Tess asked us what our priorities were and planned our day around the crocodiles and the rock art. We started early and visited Mamukala,...

Do you want to see the real Lichtfield? Take the opportunity to do that with Greg and Tess. In a small group you'll visit the 'normal' touristic spots, but not 'bus-in-bus-out'.... in a relaxed way. And you'll drive straight through the bush, to come to a place nobody can come, except with Greg and Tess. Because that is where Tess'... More

I took this tour with Tess and Greg at the end of November. There were only four of us on the tour. I booked it because I wanted an authentic aboriginal experience while visiting Darwin. I was definitely not disappointed. Tess and Greg showed us many interesting things and gave excellent explanations of many things we saw. It was also... More

Can not express our gratitude enough. Tess and Greg gave us the ultimate Litchfield experience. Communication was high from booking, on tour and after. The tour had an itinerary yet the flexibility to change should the guests want it to. The Indigenous and National Park knowledge was outstanding, Greg and Tess have so much to share and able to answer... More

Tess and Her Husband Greg do an amazing job of the day tour to Litchfield National park. It was a small group and they are very flexible with what they do depending on what the group is interested. We had some avid photographers on our tour so they made a really effort to go to places for good photos etc.... More

Most of the tours to Litchfield National Park seemed to offer pretty much the same format but this one was different. The reason it is different is because of Tess. She is an aboriginal lady who was brought up in the area and has an in depth knowledge of it. She also has a great sense of humour and is... More

Our family (parents and three children aged 14, 12 and 9) had a wonderful trip to Litchfield National park. Greg and Chrisney (an Aboriginal guide) were great to be with and we learned about local Aboriginal culture and history at the same time. Seeing the bush and country both within and outside the National Park, swimming at a beautiful waterfall... More
