11 Day Wonders of the Kimberley reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

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”
- 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 was enlightening and very enjoyable.

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 river and gorge cruises, and the accommodation, considering the remote location of towns, was very good. The tented cabin...read more

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. Another highlight was the quality of the accommodation, always the best that could be provided in this remote area. Vouchers for two free drinks...read more

“An excellent way to see the sunburnt country!”
- ACT, Australia Jul 2018 View Photo

We were most impressed by both the tour director (Dave) and the driver (Stu). The information that was relayed to us by Dave along the way was invaluable in appreciating the top of Australia. We felt the pace was just right and the places we visited were clearly well researched by AAT Kings. The accommodation was just right and there were a few gems like El Questro. Dinners were buffet style and were of variable quality but most were acceptable and one (Halls Creek) was outstanding. Stu took great...read more
