I have travelled extensively overseas but wanted to see more of Australia. I had never been to Perth or travelled below Broome so I chose the Untamed Pilbara and West Coast tour with AAT Kings. What a magical part of Australia. The tour was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone.

This AAT Kings tour was excellent. The itinerary was good and even though there were a number of places where we would have liked to spend more time, we could not identify a corresponding part that could be left off! The accommodation, meals and inclusions were excellent and we were very lucky that there were only 26 on the tour, so there was plenty of room on the coach. The Tour Director and driver were also excellent and really made this trip one to remember. We would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see some of this magnificent part of Australia.
