  • Paul Manley's review about another Inspiring Journeys tour
    4.5 - Excellent

    The tour exceeded our expectations on all fronts except for the accommodation at Wildman Wilderness Lodge which was full of bugs and stifling hot at night. Most of the meals were excellent but a few lunches had mediocre sandwiches.

  • CarlieFyfe's review about another Inspiring Journeys tour
    4.5 - Excellent

    Great to see regions of Victoria I had never visited before. Very easy driving days and distances with generous start times. Food was amazing!

  • Mick Duck's review about another Inspiring Journeys tour
    5.0 - Excellent

    Our guide James was so knowledgeable and always ensured that everyone was well looked after. The hotels were fantastic and the food was so far above and beyond what you would expect in the outback. I cannot wait to do another Inspiromg Journeys trip
