"We have been back a week from our trip on the Odyssey and what a fantastic time we had! The crew were just perfect. Dylan, Jayden, Bob, Liam, Bonnie and Paige were always there to help if you couldn't climb up a rock to see the different sites we went to. The same on the boat, always there if you needed anything and always let you know what we were going to do. The waterfalls were just beautiful, loved every minute. The reef was pretty specky, all the different types of turtles and fish. The boys told us so much about where we went, about the Bradshaw art, etc. We have never been on a boat for that long and we never felt anything but safe. We have not laughed that much in a long time. We are interested in the trip you are doing next year from Broome to Wyndham. I told Dylan I would love to have the same crew if we get to go on it. The food was reat and we were never hungry. I could go on forever about the trip, we loved everything about it!"
"I'd just like to say what an awesome trip we had and thank you once again for your generous hospitality. That I had a great time was never in question and although very excited, Caroline was a bit apprehensive - not being a big fan of boating or small aeroplanes and had never been in a helicopter before! Well... she keeps telling me about dreaming of the Kimberley and how much she enjoyed the whole experience! Loved the whole thing, the speeding through the mangroves with Jayden in the tinny was a big hit and the bonus for me is she loved the fishing. Her excitement at catching her barra was only exceeded by Dylan who was screaming like a girl! The staff were great, food and service were excellent - nothing was too much effort and they all took everything in their stride. Nev, Kat and Nick were all extremely jealous when I told them I was going back and send their best regards."
"Just sending you a short note to thank you for a great holiday! It was fantastic! Dennis and I had a wonderful time. The tours were great and the staff could not help us enough. Hope to see you soon on another tour!"
"We would like to thank you for a wonderful holiday on the cruise/fly Broome to Mitchell Plateau on 22nd of August. Dylan performed a very professional operation with his caring crew. This is a credit to you and your company. Nothing was ever a problem to all staff. The cleanliness of Odyssey, right down to the engine room was a credit to all. The food was fabulous and always a good selection. Liam is a credit to his trade. We highly recommend Odyssey Expeditions. Thank you again for making our holiday a real pleasure."
