Hi Guys,
I am considering doing a tag along tour for about 7 to 10 days in the next 3 to 4 months which would include the opportunity to do some fishing. Does anyone have the names of reputable operators that may do this type of tour.

Ken and Olga of Misty Mountain Tours. Our first few trips were tag-alongs with them. Now count them as our friends. Learnt lots from them in our first few outings, and they were very patient and never made us feel inadequate as "newbies".

Ill second that. We have done a few trips with Ken & Olga for yeas now. Love their company and Ken really knows his stuff. Also Ken is a mechanic so very handy if you have any mechanical bad luck when away, he knows a few tricks or two. We also class them as very good friends of ours, always on the blower or emails to each other if not the wife and I are following them some where on tour. They are located west of Penrith website is http://www.4wdtours.net.au/tourlist.asp?id=7 They run day tours, training, weekend tours, or weeks away at a time... Worth every cent. We did the high Country with them a few years ago, loved every bit of it and waiting to go again, (have to wate for the 16month old to get a bit older now) and numerous other trips, the day ones are fun too...the others we have used were Getabout Tours located at Prospect (Near Blacktown) John & Julie, we have also been away with them and had a blast of a time as well BUT they were bought out by NRMA so when making a booking you use them now BUT John & Julie and a few others they employ still do the tours... Personally I think any tag along tour is well worth the money especially if your first timers, plus my wife and I enjoy the company of others and new people and hearing some great storys..... All the best with it. Cant say Pat I recall meeting you but hopefully will some where along the way....... Regards Steve

you could consider joining your local 4WD club and go on their trips, costs a lot less in the long run.

I have had experience with Getabout and with David and Justine Olsen (who operate out of Townsville). I can't speak highly enough of David Olsen, top bloke!!
