I've just returned from the Yorkes tour this weekend and I would just like to say how marvellous it has been!
Truly a wonderful and magical weekend learning how to surf, catch the sunrise, gaze upon the Milky Way and have a taste of authentic barbecue meat!
Both Doug and Ricko have been absolutely wonderful, looking after everyone of us and making sure that we have a rolling good time 🙂
The surf instructors were amazing as well - am really grateful for their coaching. With their assistance, I'm really happy to have been able to stand up on the very first day and improve further on the second day! Hope you'll be able to convey my gratitude to the team who have been such lovely company the past few days.
Thank you and your team once again for giving me an unforgettable and precious experience.
I am an international student from China. It is very lucky for me to live in South Australia this beautiful place, I do love travelling around and I have already got two tours with Words on Wheels to South East Australia and Kangaroo Island, that was awesome!!! So, last week, I had my third tour with them to Outback Australia (Flinders Ranges) for three days. Let me tell my story for you.
Because we had two nights at Flinders Ranges we decided to climb a hill to watch the sunrise. Kept walking by flashlight in the dark, seated on the top ground of the mountain, enjoyed every scene with my new friend. It was an unforgettable experience in my life. I really appreciate that.
On our second day, Handsome Matt who is our driver for these three days led us to explore the diverse fauna like yellow-footed rock wallaby. They belong to the same taxonomic family as kangaroos, but I think it is cuter!
They are all naughty and hiding between the rocks so that we have to pay more attention on particular area, if something moves, it is them!! And also, we went to so many lookouts and photograph the spectacular scenes.
One more memorable thing was the camel riding. It was the first time I rode a camel, or even riding a horse.
To be honest, I was pretty nervous cause they are huge. I was worried they would drop me down if I did something wrong they might be angry. It turns out that I worried too much, my camel is a girl, she walked slowly as I expected, the only thing I need to do when riding a camel is hold on the saddle as she provided a front to back and side to side motion. I think I would kiss my camel girl if she can get her teeth brushed.
Never had such a great experience when I was in China, and so lucky that I got many friends who are from Japan, Germany and Saudi Arabia. Really looking forwards to my next tour with Words on Wheels
A big thank you for the excellent trip to the Yorke Peninsula. Ricko and Matt were amazing and made the trip really fun and also smooth sailing. The students all appreciated the fabulous food and driving, and the local knowledge and connections. I am keen to work with you again.

Jayne's tour to Naracoorte was one of the most 'edutaining' tours in the world.
We had so much fun and learnt a lot in the three days. Jayne cooks excellent food and has excellent interpersonal skills. She caters to all. Her bubbly personality is a great highlight of the trip. Jayne pays attention to every single detail. Be it the food she cooks for us or the places she takes us. She only gives the best.
Highly recommend her tours to all students.
Safety is a big priority for her too. She always puts on this lovely smile and has a great sense of humour too.
A tour that is worth our money. Happiness guaranteed. She cares about every single on of us, so no one felt left out. In fact we had so much camaraderie.
Her roasts and salads are to die for. Another surprise was the bananas toasted in our camp fire: it was out of this world.
