Beautiful scenery. Excellent Australian Trek leader, Tony, and great company from my fellow trekkers. Enjoyed it immensely. I had my birthday on the trek and that’s the most memorable and special one I’ve ever had.
Loved every minute! The crew was fantastic, so very very helpful and caring. Gareth was super informative, loads of fun, so much ENERGY. I would absolutely travel with Back Track again. Kilimanjaro here I come!
Gareth (our Australian Trek leader) was Awesome. Personable, Knowledgeable, very good with people – made our trek an experience of a lifetime!
Our crew was unbelievable and the meals provided, considering everything we ate was carried by them, was first class.
Thank you for being a part of a great achievement for me in my life. Look forward to future adventures with Back Track Adventures.
Had an incredible time and really enjoyed the experience. Staying in the villages was a highlight!
Thank you so much Ray (our Australian Trek Leader) for giving me a far better understanding of the events and hardships experienced by our diggers during this bloody conflict. I learned so much and will encourage others to experience it.
Hats off to Martin (Australian Trek Leader), he was excellent. A very calming and knowledgeable guide.
Michelle, our Australian Trek Leader, was an amazing trek leader who made the trip absolutely incredible with her positive energy. I had an amazing and challenging trek with an amazing leader and team.
Thank you for an amazing experience that exceeded every expectation I had. The physical and mental challenge can’t be described in words and to be able to say that I completed the Kokoda Track is something that I will never ever tire of. The crew and porters are some of the most beautiful people. Their kindness, care and support is second to none. A great holiday. Thank you a million.
