Testimonials

Dear Xavier, You may recall that we requested a booking on a safari on which Sandra was to be the guide because she was so highly recommended to us ….. We thoroughly enjoyed the Gekko safari and are full of admiration for Sandra’s part in the Lake Eyre experience. For over fifteen years I acted as site coordinator/local guide for US Elderhostel tour groups in North Queensland. Thus I could appreciate what a sterling job Sandra was doing as guide/coordinator/driver/ BBQ cook/etc, etc. It was a great experience, we thoroughly enjoyed it, and hopefully so far may have encouraged a cousin and some acquaintances to think about doing the Gekko thing.

Hi Xavier, We would like to let you know how much we enjoyed our tour to Lake Eyre and especially Coober Pedy. We were very impressed with our Guide, Derek. 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.

To the staff at Gekko Safari on behave of my mother Ailcie Wilks from Edenhope Vic, sister Charlene  from Melbourne and myself Kerri-Ann McWaters from Lucindale SA, I would like to say a very big Thank-you for providing a holiday we greatly enjoyed with Gekko Safari at the beginning of September. A 5 day spectacular outback tour and viewing Lake Eyre and our 85 year old mother also had the thrill of meeting her idol Dick Smith at William Creek so it was a double wammy after the awesome flight, especially for her. Paul was a top driver and tour guide. You couldn`t wish for any better. I will not take up any more of your precious time as i could easily go on forever.

Hi Xavier, I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful trip Cathy, Jenny and I had last week. Paul and Sandra are THE BEST tour guides ever, so easy going and really professional, nothing was too much trouble for them. Every minute of the tour was just fantastic, we didn’t want it to end. I’ll be recommending your tours to everyone I know. Thanks again, and all the best for the future of your business.

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.

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.

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.

Good Morning Xavier, Please pass on to Phil our thanks for a terrific trip to Lake Eyre last week, which we really enyoyed, haven’t laughed so much in ages! It was all a bit of a rush at the end with taxis waiting and we really didn’t thank him enough for his terrific driving and company. Thanks again to all. Regards,

Dear Xavier, I took the 25-29 July Lake Eyre tour and I wanted to let you know that I enjoyed it very much. The accommodation and the food were very good, the activities very interesting and of course the country we travelled through was wonderful. You have obviously put a lot of thought into the organization of the tour. Although my original goal was to see Lake Eyre, I was absolutely entranced by the Flinders Ranges and intend to return there for a more leisurely experience. Sandra is a most impressive and capable person. I think my fellow travellers all felt entirely confident with her. I won’t hesitate to recommend this tour to others.
