Although physically and mentally challenging (to me), this adventure was definitely exhilarating. Nature (and weather) are your friend and opponent. Without the (one day of) rain, the waterfalls rack on Milford track would not have been so powerful and luxuriant. Contrasting with warm days, especially two days on the Otago cycle track where there was little shade, followed by cold headwinds the next day, but overall the weather was better than anticipated. All accomodation was warm and clean, we had lovely hearty food at most stops. The camaraderie in the evenings, and various extras such as the cruise on Milford Sound and Vintage Rail Carriage ride to Dunedin added to the experience.

It was a great trip - the walk and the bike sections balanced really well. Jazzie was the perfect coordinator and was always friendly and cheerful with everyone. She went out of her way at the end of the trip to make sure everyone got to the airport and to places of interest. I enjoyed her company alot and especially appreciated her sharing her beautiful mother with us all.

Adventurous Women is a wonderful way to meet other women wanting to explore and to take challenges. Long time friendships are create through this group. I would and have recommended AW to other women.

Lovely relaxed weekend. Well organised. With A lovely bunch of girls
A great weekend. Well organised and fun
Extremely well organized. Having Steve as a driver, cook, tour guide made the trip, his easy going personality made the tour run smoothly; he went over and aboard his bus driver duties in ensuring everyone was happy.
10/10 The 'gerls' on the trip where ALL fantastic. Really are special group of women , whom I am proud to be associated with. It was wonderful how well everyone got along. All the 'gerls' very supportive, and caring of one another. Wouldn't hesitate touring with the same 'gerls' again.
10/10 Affordability; great value for money. The itinery couldn't have been better, excellent sights, excellent over-night stops. Length of tour perfect. Nothing was ever rushed.
10/10 The relaxed, easy going tour was a perfect holiday; no pressure, everyone understanding each other's needs.
10/10 A few of things though that could be looked at;.. Our first night in Adelaide; perhaps a venue for dinner could be pre-arranged, agreed on and booked prior to arrival. Much easy for weary travellers. A detailed map as to how to get to hostel for those taking the bus; number of bus stop; then actual map of where to go then.
Our splendid driver ; a thank you gift was lacking, still feel he ought have a 'thank you; gift; he wasn't the average 'gruff' driver. We all appreciate a token of thanks at times. As for myself; big draw back was my health. It held me back in fully participating. I was very aware that I wasn't fully there. None-the-less I was very happy. I am now back to full health, and after two years, the Velta I know is back.
The trip was excellent; very fortunate to have experienced such a great experience with remarkable 'gerls'.

A very well put together weekend with the right amount of activities and free time. Sue, as usual a superb host and Dirty Detours again a fantastic company. SUP and kayak were great even if I did get a bit too adventurous and have to get rescued! Accommodation suited our purposes well. A great bunch of inspiring women to get to know.

A huge thanks you for a wonderful day. It lived up to and exceeded the wrap on your website - adventure and the opportunity to meet women from different walks of life in a safe and supporting environment. Thoroughly worth the drive from Kalgoorlie.
It definitely won't be the last that you see of me! As you have probably guessed, I fell in love with (safe) abseiling and am impressed by the ethos of Adventurous Women.

This is a fantastic trip, very inspiring with beautiful scenery the whole way. Sue O was amazing with her insight on attractions etc. The accommodation was first class and the food was totally amazing with 3 courses every night. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone considering doing the Camino.

`Had a wonderful weekend away, getting to enjoy the beauty of nature, that gets the senses activated. Fresh coastal air, stunning wild flowers, the sound of the ocean and rugged coastline. A lovely group of women as always, with tasty meals, and dessert. Accomodation in a great location. Biking with experienced guides in the national park as the backdrop, just adds to the adventure.

Had a great time, wanted to do this last year but had to work instead so was glad I was able to attend this time. I loved going to the gorges, after hiking/walking along and finding a beautiful oasis with a well earned swim, could have stayed all day in those places.
