Vicki & Alex - The Great Tasmanian Adventure 2021
The patience and understanding that Renee & Andrew showed to us in our older years was so kind and helpful. We will always have fond memories of them both for all 3 tours we have had with them.
Rita & Les - The Great Tasmanian Adventure 2021
Excellent way to visit new places, lots of fun along the way. Exceptional value for money lead by the very experienced Andrew & Renee
Allan & Marg - The Great Tasmanian Adventure 2021
We have had Tasmania on our bucket list for a long time. The opportunity to join the Great Tasmania Adventure Tour was keenly accepted. From the day we paid our deposit we were fully informed of progress as covid border closures played a big part. Renee & Andrew then escorted us in a professional and friendly tour. Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks sincerely for this.
Mary & Alec - The Great Tasmanian Adventure 2021
A safe way to travel, enjoy an adventure seeing new places with a wonderful comeraderie amongst the group.
Joe & Fiona - Qld Outback Wandering 2020
Another great time as usual, looking forward to the next adventure
Dick & Helen - Qld Outback Wandering 2020
Our third tagalong trip and looking forward to 2 trips with Renee & Andrew in 2021. Ideal way of seeing things in towns and centres you did not know existed.
Harry & Merle - Qld Outback Wandering 2020
Well organised safaris run by Renee & Andrew - loads of fun and laughs along the way
Allan & Margaret - Qld Outback Wandering
Renee & Andrew's attention to detail is excellent, seeing that everything and everyone is look after. The happy hour with its laughter and banter that comes with it. The slow travelling to enjoy the scenery, plenty of free time for self exploring.
Bruce & Thelma - The Great Tasmanian Adventure 2020
We recommend Xpedition Tagalongs, great time was had by our group, will certainly be going again. Andrew & Renee are great leaders and fun to be with, we were in safe hands at all times. This is our 3rd tagalong, they just get bigger and better
Allan & Lesley - The Great Tasmanian Adventure 2020
Everyone was made to feel welcome and included.
Ron & Alys - The Great Tasmanian Adventure 2020
Andrew & Renee ran the safari in a professional manner, showing consideration to all participants. Andrew went above and beyond to help with any vehicle problems. The campsites and planned events were organised in advance and therefore access was seamless. It was a stress free, fun and friendly event which, as a solo traveller, I enjoyed immensely
Jenny H - The Great Tasmanian Adventure 2020
Couldn't want for better tour guides than Andrew & Renee. Well planned, organised and lots of fun. Highly recommend Xpedition Tagalong Tours for an interesting safari.
Chris & Wendy - The Great Tasmanian Adventure 2020
Wow! What a wonderful way to see Tasmania. Andrew & Renee have included so any "not to be missed" places to visit while travelling, with safety, in a group. We are now looking forward to our next tagalong trip. Book your next adventure now!
Brian & Liz - The Great Tasmanian Adventure 2020
A big thank you again to our hosts and leaders Andrew & Renee, they just make our journeys so much fun and enjoyable. Would never have been able to do this safari on our own even if we had all the maps money could buy. Lots of research and effort goes into all safaris and again "thank you". Hopefully we have made a few friends along the way.
Max and Gerda
This was our sixth safari, hopefully many more. The enjoyment of camping in places and travelling on routes, one may not pick if on their own. Happy hour with people who become friends with common interests. Guided by a dedicated couple, who compliment each other with vasts depth of relevant knowledge
Lauri & Mary
Andrew and Renee are the perfect Tagalong tour group leaders. Their relaxed, inclusive, friendly manner belies the constant attention to detail, competence and experience that lies beneath. Uluru and Beyond met all my expectations and then some. I can now say that I have done the Red Centre.
Viveinne Page - Uluru and Beyond Safari 2018
We spent 30 days with Andrew and Renee covering thousands of kilometres, beautiful scenery. Exceptional stopovers we would have never seen. They were always available to help and this helped bring everyone together.
Trevor and Vicki Picket - Uluru and Beyond Safari 2018
As first time safari participants, we weren't sure what to expect, but we were very impressed with how organised our expedition leaders, Andrew and Renee, Led from the front. enjoyed travelling in a convoy for the first time.
Alan and Kathy - Uluru and Beyond Safari 2018
Awesome leaders! Had a great time going to the tip and back. Felt very comfortable following behind. Will be looking out for more tips to do in the future
