Essential Adventure for all Australians   0 , SA, Australia, Jun 2021
I rated this trip as a 10/10 adventure based on the scenery, the experiences in terms of the Bungles, Emma Gorge and Zebedee Gorge, the 4 boat trips and the overall wilderness, which were all enhanced by AAT's Nellie and Mark.

Thanks for your assistance booking our trip. We really enjoyed ourselves seeing places we had been curious about for a long time.

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.

Amazing Kimberley experience 3 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2016
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 ...read more 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 !
Enjoyable Kimberleys Experience 3 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2016
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 ...read more 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.
