I had a wonderful time on my trip to Exmouth and Karijini National Park from Perth. Everything was well organized, the accommodations were clean and the food was great. Our tour guides were very good. A big thank you to Aaron and Sue. I'm still impressed by Sue's knowledge, easygoing way and dealing with problems. Aaron is a funny guy who is always in a good mood and has a cheeky saying on his lips. Both worked great together as a team and made the trip unforgettable for us. However, the tour could be two days longer, so that there is more time in the Karijini, for example. Unfortunately, that fell short. The driving hours on the website would also have to be adjusted, we were always on the road much longer. Otherwise everything else was perfect and I always felt safe with Sue and Aaron.
