I have visited Alice Springs a few times but only this time was able to take Linda's walking tour .. a few hours after my arrival, in fact, after long flights from the US. It was so worth it to stay awake and join Linda, rather than go to sleep. The tour wound up being just Linda and me, and... More

Towards the end, we spent a while sitting in the red sand of the Todd River as dusk fell, chatting about a range of interesting topics, priceless! We had a... More

We loved being shown around Alice Springs by Linda. Her 2 hour walking tour took us to the best places in and around the town centre. Her in depth knowledge of the history and colourful identities of the region was excellent. Plus she gave us lots of information about other things to do in Alice while we are here. Highly... More

Linda offers a colourful and insightful look into the history of Alice Springs. Her candid and well researched stories helped bring the place to life, while her poetic ode to the Todd River added a further poignant and haunting element. I highly reccomend spending a few hours with Linda and soaking up the hidden histories of this extraordinary place.

An informative couple of hours easy walk around historic parts of the city. Linda has an extensive knowledge of the area and is very interesting. Max number of 4 people so a nice small group, plenty of time for questions.
