Our Friendly Tour Drivers & Guides
MEET THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS!
Friendly, knowledgeable crews
At Outback Spirit we can't make the amazing landforms, breathtaking panoramas or unique flora and fauna any more remarkable than they already are. But we’re proud to say our Tour Drivers and Tour Directors are the icing on this very special cake.
Imagine a close trusted friend, proudly showing you around their favourite places, with the benefit of unrivalled local knowledge. Then add-in the luxury of a Mercedes-Benz All Terrain coach and a driver who’s skills and experience are second to none. That’s what it’s like on an Outback Spirit expedition with crews we believe are the very best in the business.
For our Tour Drivers and Tour Directors this is their life. There’s nothing they like more than sharing their passion enthusiastically with new friends, enjoying every look of surprise and amazement as each wonder is revealed.
Our crews tend to be more mature, quite often couples (on two-crew tours), and are always chosen for their friendly attitude, absolute reliability, years of experience and love of the Outback. They’ll be there when you need them but discrete when you don’t, taking care of all the details behind the scenes so you can relax and enjoy the tour in safety and comfort.
Acquiring our single biggest asset
Outback Spirit crews join us with a wealth of expertise, knowledge and enthusiasm. Then, they complete a full internal training program to ensure they meet our more-than-demanding standards. During this time they also learn about our detailed itineraries and all the hidden treasures that many tours miss out on.
Driving luxury coaches safely and comfortably across rugged terrain requires great experience. So as a bare minimum, our Tour Drivers have held the required licences and accreditations for at least ten years. This is part of our zero-compromise policy to safety in the Outback.
Many people will be happy to show you around wilderness Australia. Come on-board an Outback Spirit tour and you'll experience this spirit of our people, too.
