recommendations (4)

The experience of walking the Larapinta Trail was excellent - I enjoyed all aspects of the trip and was very impressed by our guides who kept us safe, informed us, challenged us, fed us and managed
logistics all with wonderful care and good humour. The landscape was amazing and I really enjoyed learning about the geology, vegetation and birdlife as well as the cultural significance of the places we visited. It was a great trip and I would be very happy to do something like this again with World Expeditions.

World Expeditions Larapinta trail in comfort is terrific value in terms of experiencing one of the best walks in the world and be well guided and looked after in the process.

World Expeditions do not disappoint! The guides, the meals and the level of organisation is of a very high standard. I have taken 2 trips and would not hesitate to travel anywhere in the world with them.

L. Nath Leura, NSW Australia

The scenery was spectacular, Counts Point and Ormiston Gorge being two highlights; the walking was enjoyable and included some good challenges; our guides Ange, Nicole and Ashton took good care of us; the camp site enhanced the experience, the food and sleeping under the stars in our swags were two more highlights. We will certainly recommend World Expeditions to anyone looking for a similar experience. We have already been reading about the other World Expedition Australian Walking holidays.
