Wonders of the Kimberley 0Pam & Stephen, VIC, Australia, Jul 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Kimberleys with AAT Kings and feel extremely lucky to have made it as all future tours for 2021 have been cancelled. Our guide Delma, and driver Cam were excellent. Because of border closures we only had 19 fellow passengers, all of whom were very easy to get along with. We would like to thank Georgie, from Global ...read more Journeys for her help in planning this trip. We will certainly be looking at booking any future trips with her.
Kimberley Highlights 0Geoff & Jennifer, QLD, Australia, May 2021
Comfortable trip - accommodation and food excellent (had to stop eating breakfasts) - tour director (Cam) and driver (John) were first class always on hand to help the tourists. Highlights were the day trip to the Bungle Bungles and the fast cruise with the crazy Alaskan chick. We probably expected a slightly more adventurous trip a la Gibb River road ...read more but still very enjoyable. All the passengers got on well which is important with a trip like this.
Wonders of the Kimberley 0Jeanette & Anthony, NSW, Australia, Sep 2019
Would travel with AAT Kings again. Excellent tour director and coach driver. Tour all the better because it only had 22 passengers.
11 Day Wonders of the Kimberley 0Rhonda, VIC, Australia, Sep 2019
The tour was very well organised and the tour leader was very informative due to him having lived in the area we visited. The stories he had heard in his time living there gave us insight to the people who live in these places. The accommodation in most places was exceptional and the meals included surpassed my expectations. The overall experience ...read more was enlightening and very enjoyable.
Wonders of the Kimberley with AAT Kings 3Ken , WA, Australia, Jun 2019
Thanks to Madeline at Global Journeys for arranging our tour with AAT Kings. All went very smoothly. Whilst some days required early starts the tour was most enjoyable. The Tour Director Delma and driver Ben were exceptional. They were caring and most considerate professionals. The coach was comfortable, scenery was wonderful, especially the four ...read more river and gorge cruises, and the accommodation, considering the remote location of towns, was very good. The tented cabin at Emma Gorge was great. I would strongly recommend this tour for anyone who would love to get a feeling and understanding of Northern Australia.
Wonders of the Kimberley 0Judy, VIC, Australia, Aug 2018
I am very happy, firstly with Juliet from Global Journeys who managed all aspects of the tour including single supplement, on a rather late booking. This trip was all I dreamed and more, mainly from the way the tour was organised, and the many extras that were included, the cruises where on one we were treated to afternoon tea in the middle of nowhere. ...read more Another highlight was the quality of the accommodation, always the best that could be provided in this remote area. Vouchers for two free drinks each evening. My trip was made so much more enjoyable by our couch driver Warren, who went beyond his duties when I had an unfortunate hiccup on the bus, thank you Warren. Our tour guide Dave, scores 11 out of 10 for his courtesy, helpfulness to all the 35 of us, his knowledge of the area, the history, giving everyone the feeling that we were his friend. Lastly AAT Kings, my first trip with your company, but definitely not my last. As you know word of mouth is the best advertisement, and I will be praising the tour, the personnel, and making this trip so enjoyable.
