Hi Xavier,   Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our wonderful trip with Dick last week. My husband Dean, my sister Joy and her friend Rita had the most fantastic trip imaginable. The weather was perfect, and every turn was a panoramic view. The only thing that was annoying was a couple of whinging poms, but you get that!! Rita is a pom who has only been out here for 3 years, and they made her embarrassed to be a pom. They complained that we were late getting in for our meals at night, but it was because we were all having such a great time that we didn’t care what time we got in. Dick was very friendly and accommodating and pretty good with the jokes too! We all thought that your company puts on a pretty tremendous tour and we will certainly be recommending this trip to all our friends. Extremely good value for money. Thank you for all your help in the organizing out trip.   The transport was most comfortable, and it was great to move around different seats to chat to all the passengers.   A couple of suggestions for improvements:  Maybe some overhead nets to put warm jackets etc in so they’re not under your feet or on your lap. A really good voice over for the area your travelling through, with all the points of interest, so as not to distract the driver.   Dick did make plenty of stops for photographs of scenery, wildflowers and wildlife.

Hi Xavier Just wanted to drop you a quick Thank You. I was lucky enough to experience your wonderful tour to the outback and Lake Eyre. It has been the best holiday I have had so far – enjoyed every minute of it. Also wanted to let you know how wonderful your Tour Guides – Paul and Sandra are and how well they looked after us. They are so organised and always on time – very informative and very helpful. Nothing is ever too much trouble. We have now been to some amazing places and met some interesting local people – these are the things that you never forget. I will definitely be telling all my family and friends what a great trip we had. The accommodation – always very comfortable – The Food was great – good variety and always plenty of it. We spent many good times with the other passengers on the trip and will definetely be catching up with some of them in the future. Thank You again. Hopefully I will travel with you again sometime.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour to Lake Eyre last week. Your driver/tour guide, Nick, provided exceptional service and we cannot praise him highly enough. His knowledge and experience added to the enjoyment of the tour and he is a credit to your organisation.

He was a particularly good driver and gave us a most enjoyable time giving us lots of information and he took us to lots of interesting places. Please pass on to him our thanks and regards. You can be very proud of him.

Hello, Xavier, Along with my sister Sue Barletta and my cousin Jenny Peardon, I recently went on your 5-day Lake Eyre trip which departed Adelaide on 5th October. Just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. We found our drivers/tour guides, Paul and Sandra, to be very helpful, friendly and informative. They did an excellent job of looking after us for the whole trip, and nothing was too much trouble for them. We had a lot of fun and Paul and Sandra showed us some amazing parts of the country. It is obvious that they are both passionate about what they do. We’ve been raving about our trip to all our family and friends since we’ve been back home and have been recommending Gecko to everyone. Thank you so much for a wonderful and very memorable tour.

Just a quick note to say thank you for the fabulous time my wife and I have just had in South Australia/Lake Eyre with Gekko Tours. I would particularly like to commend your representative, Mr Richard Wadham who led our tour. He looked after us with professionalism and care that we appreciated very much. At no time did we feel “unsafe” under his care and driving, and we feel that our enjoyment of the tour was enhanced greatly by Mr Wadham. That said. H.O is not to be left without our congratulations, the Sparking French Wine that we got to enjoy yesterday at Port Augusta on our cruise was just the perfect way to end our tour. Well done Gekko Tours.

Hi Xavier, We have just come down from cloud 9. What a great trip we had, every day there was a new experience and country we had never seen before. It was hard to decide which was the highlight of the whole adventure . Margaret being a former Art Teacher could not go past the texture, patterns and colours of Lake Eyre. For me it was the boat trip on Spencer Gulf. The Skipper a very passionate person was a real Tourist asset. Paul our driver and guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. Always willing to go that extra step to make it a memorable holiday. Many thanks Paul and Xavier and all the best for the future.

Dear Xavier The Tour was wonderful. I’m not going into it now, as I need time to sort my thoughts and photographs out, but rest assured it was brilliant. Both Norma and I are thirsty for more as I think she has already told you. So please keep us on your mailing list should you be having any new ones on your itinery. I did a wine tour on Sunday and was expounding to all the passengers, how FANTASTIC !!! Gecko Safari Tours were and recommending you like mad. Again so many thanks, and when I have wrapped my mind round the Tour I will be in touch again.
