Dear JLPTravel

Thank you for your review. We are privileged to operate our business on one of the best beaches in the world, looking out over the Indian Ocean. We love our animals very much and I believe it shows when you interact with them, as most of them love the attention they get from our customers.I will pass on your kind words to our staff.

Thank you for riding with Red Sun Camels

“Dodgy, run and unprofessional”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

My wife and children did a tour with these unprofessional bunch yesterday and had the worst time of any trip they have ever been on. The weather was not the best but we got a call to say the tour was still on, so trusted their judgement and went. Interestingly the other two camel operators had canceled their tours.

The weather picked up during our ride and before even reaching the half way mark we were told to get off the camels and walk the kilometer or so back as the camels were spooked by the wind and now rain. So we are now walking in the soft beach sand, wind howling and raining freezing us.

When we eventually got back to the starting point and expressed our disappointment we were told "everyone else was happy with half a ride", not sure who she was talking about as everyone was complaining. Surely this is an admission of breach of contract, we paid for a whole tour which we definitely didn't get. When we asked about any photos the lady at the van was very rude.

So not only did we not get the camel ride we paid for (no where near an hour) , we obviously did not get the sunset ride it is advertised as and had to walk back with the staff not caring about the customers. Happy to take your money no matter what.

No wonder people now holiday overseas, the service quality far outweighs anything here.

“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

I was a little nervous, but felt in very good hands when the guides explained what to do. They supported everyone individually to get on and off the camels. The guides informed us about the camels and answered our questions. They also took photos. We did the sunset ride, the last of the day which was really wonderful. A must if visiting Broome.
