I joined the WayOutback Cicada Dreaming Darwin to Alice Springs Safari tour on 10 Sep with guide, Josh. I'm really glad that I took up the tour and enjoyed the beautiful scenary along the way eg Katherine Gorge, Bitter Springs and Devils Marbles etc. Josh made sure that we had sufficient time at each attraction, planned our meals and numerous toilet stops. Great job, Josh! I'm relieved that there's hot shower at the camp sites and place to charge our handphones. So happy with the big, nice and clean toilets. It's very enjoyable to sleep in swag around the campfire. Ignore the 19 to 40 age group, half of the tour members do not fall under this age group. It's much interesting to have a mix as everyone is friendly and shared their vast knowledge and experience. There's nothing that retirees cannot do for this tour.
