I really do feel a part of the Trek Tours Australia family and that is because of the way every member of the Trek Tours Team goes out of the way to make our trekking experiences so special – from the way you respond to all our questions in such a timely way and with such helpful advice, to the way the guides shape the trek to take into account the needs of the group (and always pick the right moment to bring out the chocolate), to the way Holger just appeared on both our trip briefing/gear check and on the last day to pick us up for lunch and to take us back to Hobart . It is all those little touches that mean I will keep coming back to Trek Tours for more and more.
I had a wonderful, exhilarating, awe-inspiring South Coast trek. We certainly did get to experience all the South Coast can offer in terms of weather conditions – hail, blustering winds, rain and glorious sunshine. Dealing with those conditions made the trek all that more memorable for me, but it was only because of the brilliant leadership of our guides – Jacob and Warwick – that I had the confidence to complete the South Coast track (something I have been yearning to do for ages).
Nothing I write could reflect just how highly I think of Jacob and Warwick. They were absolutely wonderful. I really appreciated their positive attitudes, good humour and calmness in the face of pretty wild weather conditions and some serious mud/leeches/water crossings. It was so reassuring to have two guides who were prepared to handle every situation the trek threw at us. They were true jacks-of-all-trades – being navigators, rowers, doctors and chefs (just to mention a few!). It was such a luxury to have our camps prepared and meals made for us every day. We earned the envy of all the independent walkers for the food we were served. The rest day was particularly memorable – pancakes, sushi and a curry with fresh naan bread…seriously yummy after our experience on in the Ironbound Ranges. My tastebuds have also been awakened to the pleasure of Bengal spice tea – when I drink it now it always brings back memories of camp.
I will definitely be travelling with Trek Tours in the future. I am thinking about Kakadu in 2017.
I am writing to let you know that I had a wonderful time on the Kakadu trip. I thought that things could not be better after Larapinta end to end with the fantastic Cat and Joel but it did! Josh, Steve and Jo were the Dream Team. Josh was such a good guide, often stopping to tell us about a cave, a wall, a rock with art that we would see just ahead, a bird flying overhead or a plant at our feet, cooking us delicious meals every evening and just being so knowledgeable and enthusiastic always. Steve was always happy to offer his hand to guide me through some of the more difficult stages and was also a mind of information about what we encountered along the way, fantastic. And Jo, she was also a helping hand when needed with a happy smile at every stage, her breakkie porridge was wonderful. Such a brilliant team that worked so hard to ensure we had a wonderful trip and they worked so well together – make sure you keep them, they were the added bonus and were the cherry on top of the Kakadu cake. Brilliant.
The hike was hard, no doubt about that and I feel that all 3 of the guides in their own way, brought that little extra something to the trip.
More of the same please!
Please tell them that they made the trip extra special and thank them for their hard work and dedication, it will never be forgotten.
Thank you Trek Tours.
We have just completed the Super 6 Day Larapinta Trek with Trek Larapinta and it exceeded all expectations! Five years in the planning we expected beautiful scenery, but weren’t quite prepared for the scale and just how breathtaking it actually is! The trek turned out to be about much more than the scenery. Our guides, Kate and Rob, are experts and an asset to Trek Larapinta. They are very knowledgeable about the geology, flora and fauna of the area and their enthusiasm for sharing the Larapinta with others was inspiring. An added bonus was their superb cooking skills. The fresh, wholesome and extremely yummy food was much appreciated! There were many other highlights; from our fellow trekkers who became firm friends, campfire chats, sleeping under the stars in a swag, very refreshing swims in Birthday Waterhole and the Finke River, a show-off Spinifex Pigeon, to challenging but fun walking. Loved the rock hopping in the gorges! The NT Parks trail builders who constructed all the rock stairs on the slopes are to be commended. We have no hesitation in recommending Trek Larapinta and hope we can join another Trek Australia tour soon!
