Can't add much more than has already been written about Bob's tour. Have a read of all the reviews. We (Julie and I) were the only ones on our particular tour which made it very special for us. Bob is a lovely bloke and and made us feel very comfortable with him. He is not short of stories and knowledge of the bush and the uses of plants in his 'bush tucker'. I would recommend this tour to anyone travelling to the 'outback' of Oz.

Bob collected us from the hotel and drove us to several places of interest, all the time telling us tales and facts about his life and about Aboriginal culture. It was one of the highlights of our month in Australia. We are both vegetarians and Bob adapted his usual menu to suit us - so although we didn't get to eat emu or kangaroo, he prepared plenty of other tasty dishes for us. A fabulous afternoon and evening - thanks, Bob!

We were treated like queens. All 5 of us. Bob picked us up from our hotel and brought us to the Alice Springs Telegraph station where we saw a mother kangaroo with her joey.
We enjoyed dinner in view of the Western McDonnell ranges, and were treated to an amazing 5 course gourmet bush meal prepared by Bob. We still talk about the sparkling lemon drink with river mint and wattleseed-rubbed macadamia nuts.
We also enjoyed the emu sausage and lean kangaroo meat. Dessert was individual cakes cooked over the fire and they left us speechless. It was absolutely delicious!
All this under the night sky listening to the sounds of the desert. It was a one of a kind, authentic Outback experience and we absolutely loved it.

Bob does, history, geography, culture, politics and some special cooking.
The perspective you get is unlike any other. It is personal from a person who has and continues to live it.
We are so glad that we chose this activity - thanks Bob

Bob did a wonderful tour for the two of us. What we enjoyed the most, were the interesting insights, the personal tour character and just perfect, delicious dinner under the stars. Thank you again, Bob, we absolutely enjoyed the tour with you!!
