Firstly to the Flinders Ranges for a great soft adventure for seniors. We accomplished many challenging walks for some but everyone thoroughly enjoyed the views, the companionship and your wonderful feeling for the country and knowledge.

The second tour to Kangaroo Island was also enjoyed by 14 travellers and showed us the many interesting and unique features of this amazing island."

"What an amazing experience!

I have had a fabulous time exploring the area with Peter. Superb scenery and lots of wildlife. Peter is a great guide and extremely knowledgable. The highlight of the tour was Wilpena Pound but I have loved exploring so many other places -

too many to expand! I intend to return to SA and hope to travel with Swagabout and Peter to explore new routes!"

Thank you Peter for an amazing 4 days.

Your good real coffee pauses earlier in the mornings was delicious. If you are in Adelaide don't miss the Flinders Ranges and if I have the possibility, I'll be back here to see and understand more.

"Peter's trek was part of our 2 month odyssey from Traverse City, Michigan to Australia and back. Peter's knowledge of the Flinders Ranges was remarkable. We lerned so much about the history and the geological development of the area. our stay at Rawnsley Park was very comfortable and the evening meals at the Woolshed was a wonderful dining experience. We will talk about these memories for years.

"We went on a 4 day/3night trip from Ade;aide - Rawnsley Park - Arkaroola. It was great to go in such a quiet time of the year and experience these amazing places virtually all to ourselves. The Ridgetop Tour was a highlight. Peter's cooking was delicious and the trip was very well organized. Thanks to his hard work we had a wonderful outback experience.

I was certainly impressed with Peter's range of knowledge. He was very informative on all matters from Outback history to local vegetation. A very enjoyable trip."

We did a 3D/2N tour of Kangaroo Island with Peter. We opted for the camping experience and slept in a swag in a tent for the 2 nights. It was a fun and interesting taste of Australian Outback camping.

Peter is a treasure trove of information on the flora and fauna of the Island and the various places of interest that we went to. He also had a sharp eye and spotted lots of birds, kangaroos and koalas for us to take photographs of.

We also enjoyed the food that Peter prepared for us with lots of unusual food such as vegemite, crumpets, sweet potato, dips and dolmades which we didn't know about and enjoyed. Had a fantastic time and Peter took care of us.

Thank you very much for taking great care of us the past couple of days. specially appreciate your flexibility adapting to our bird watching interests. Also loved the impromptu stop at the pink lake with the samphire tasting.

All te best for your future endeavours.

A 5 star outback adventure.

"We have experienced the real Australia with Peter. His extensive knowledge of geologicla aspects of the land helped us understand the Australian outback features. Peter's friendly laid back Aussie style made this trip relaxing and enjoyable. All the places that we went to we loved, in particular Arkaroola, the Ridgetop Tour and the Lake Eyre flight. It was a life time experience that should be on everyone's bucket list. Thanks for all your driving, meals, picnics under the coolabah trees or in the ruins. If you are a coffee connoisseur this is a trip not to be missed - real Italian coffee served from Peter's 16 cup caffettiera daily.

Thanks Peter for a memorable trip."
