We used Jayne Vaughton of Words on Wheels for transport and Jayne went above and beyond the call of duty with the role. Jayne's energy enthusiasm and knowledge - both of SA and how to relate to international visitors - is first class. Can't recommend her highly enough for this kind of work.
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.
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.
Flinders Ranges was the first time I had participated in an Australian trip and traveled a long way far from the city. Initially I was a bit nervous and not really interested. But my feeling have changed after I met friendly people on the bus and a responsible guide. We walked, cooked, ran away from flies, took photos, gathered around the fire and watched the Milky Way. We become more confident and responsible when helping each other. The time passes so quick, but it is enough to keep the memories inside my heart. A trip makes changes to my life.
We had a fabulous day with Jayne, the Words on Wheels team and of course our students. Thank you very much for instigating this event. All but the Mt Gambier students attended and had a great time catching up with friends, seeing the sights and enjoying the barbecue lunch. The bus trip home was certainly a lot quieter than on the way there. This always indicates a great time was had by all!!!
I think that Rick and Matt did an incredible job, both were very friendly and relatable to students as well as clearly being very passionate and knowledgeable about not just KI but also South Australia and Australian culture in general. I feel like they really went above and beyond to ensure that everyone on the tour felt welcome, safe and happy. I cannot speak their praises highly enough... The food was also incredible! Far beyond what I was expecting!
