One day outback tour with Gary. Other reviews have covered the detail of the day but just to echo it was jam-packed and value for money. Gary is an excellent guide and this day has been a highlight of our trip to Australia.

Had a 2 day tour to Chillagoe with a cultured professional top guide and gentleman who is really interested about the region and is a grand connaisseur of Queensland. Always attentive to the guests needs I would recommend Perentie Tours to everyone.
