hi, yes we certainly enjoyed the overnight Adventure North tour in September. Our 2 tour guides were excellent, Gary, day 1, and Adam(?) day 2. They were both great drivers and kept us well-informed and entertained on both legs of the journey. The only slightly disappointing thing was the lunch stop in the caravan park on day 1. The food was a bit too ordinary and not very well presented. Later when we stopped at the Lions Den Hotel, many of us on the bus did think a lunch/snack/drinks stop there may have been better. We also commend the Adventure North group with enthusiastically keeping us in touch with our bus departure and arrival times on both days via texts and phone calls. The Cooktown Seaview Motel certainly had the best water views. Fantastic! Thanks to all, Malcolm and Kim
