Testimonials

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, 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dear Xavier. My husband and I travelled on the Lake Eyre Spectacular tour departing Adelaide on October 5th 2011. We would like to say how much we enjoyed it. The whole trip was so well organised: our accommodation was clean and comfortable, the meals were most enjoyable and always ready when we were and nothing could be faulted. We have travelled a lot around the world and our driver Paul was the best we have encountered. Paul had the ability, while letting us feel as though we had all the time in the world, to still keep the schedule running on time. We were never rushed or hassled. We had a good group on board which always adds to the fun….often there is THAT ONE who causes bother! All in all we had a great fun time and enjoyed ourselves immensely. I might add that we are spreading the word! Regards to all at GekkoSafari.

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.
