Thanks for your assistance booking our trip. We really enjoyed ourselves seeing places we had been curious about for a long time. We would have no hesitation in booking with Global Journeys again or recommending this trip to others. The itinerary was packed with interest and we were more than happy with the meals and accommodation. The weather in the north at this time of the year suited us well. Our tour director and coach driver were particularly efficient, friendly and helpful. Our fellow travellers were a good bunch and everyone got along well.

I really can't suggest any improvements over what we received. We thought that the trip was very good value for money. We took part in only one optional extra which was the Willy Creek pearl farm in Broome on our free day which was all the extras that we wanted.

This was our first coach tour and the experience was very good. AAT/Kings was a great company to travel with and we would definitely tour with them again and recommend them. The Tour Director was very knowledgeable and experienced, this made the holiday very enjoyable. The bus driver was very experienced and we felt comfortable with him operating the coach. The accommodation was very good to excellent. The tours were well organised and interesting. The included meals and wine were of good quality. We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. We think it was very good value for money.

Global Journeys were great to deal with and kept us informed and up to date of progress from our initial inquiry to concluding the holiday. We would definitely consider them for future trips.

Our entire trip from day 1 was really well done. AAT Kings were professional, personal, experienced, helpful, patient with those less able to look after themselves & generally gave us information on what was happening every day, (no one needed to wonder about what was going to happen.) Our tour guide was always giving us information & details on the places we were either passing by, going to visit or staying at. We learnt so much each day about the roads, scenery, indigenous populations & history - both indigenous & more recent, we spent lots of time learning about the people who came to these areas & how they got there.

All of it was enlightening & interesting. Our driver was exceptional, everyone felt confident about his driving ability, he was also friendly, helpful, informative and nothing was too much trouble for him. The bus was always kept clean. Our accommodation was always good - sometimes better than we expected, our food each day was always fresh and many of the meals were top quality, there was always plenty of food. We have seen incredible scenery & places in this amazing country of ours. We had a sensational holiday !

Highly Recommended! The trip highlights were the Katherine Gorge, Emma Gorge, Ord River cruise at sunset and the Lake Argyle stop. We would definitely travel with AAT Kings again and book through Global Journeys again online as it was trouble free and very easy to book. The Accommodation and food was excellent, especially the El Questo stay over in the Cockburn Ranges. We recommend August as a perfect time to travel in this part of the world as it is late in the Dry Season and not too hot.

Our 11 day untamed Kimberley holiday with AAT Kings was excellent, great accommodation with variations, Nellie was excellent in helping everyone, especially those of us who needed special diets, Rolfe was a very good driver, they both went out of their way to accommodate everyone and especially with those extra things like taking us to see the Boab trees at sunset for some great photos, it was lovely to be able to have two drinks with our dinner every night, overall we were very pleased with our holiday.
