Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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!

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!

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!

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.
