Another Satisfied Customer - John Redmond
David, Clodagh and my trek leader Reg Yates,
A big thank you for a safe and well organised trip from Owers' Corner to Kokoda arch, and a special Fuzzy Wuzzy Angel day at Kokoda - something I will never forget!
To have a leader like Reg Yates with his expert info of all the battle sights and his tactics employed by our Aussie boys and the fanatical fighting Japanese.
To actually stand on the battle sites and think what they went through to save Australia. Long live the history of the gallant 39 Battalion and all who followed.
The service provided by Reg at Brigade Hill was special to me and moving beyond all expectations because it was my 3rd time on the track - my 60th birthday at Brigade Hill in 2008 and doing it again in 2009 and now in 2011.
If I completed my first trek with Kokoda Historical I wouldn't have had to do the track in 2 consecutive years. The knowledge I saw on the track matched what I had read in all my books - this completed my journey and dream!
We got all the history and lived our dreams out there - In the mud, the torrential rain, the heat, the mosquitoes, the sand flies, sleeping on the floor etc...
The kids all along the track love it when you pass through there village (a special moment, especially when they received the gifts I brought for them - they are all so happy and they have nothing.
The personal porters on the track with you are friends for life Mark, Johns Ford, Joel and the "life of the party" Zorro - they are our Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels they are there at your worst and also at the end of the line. They are a caring bunch of guys! Job well done
Kokoda Historical is highly recommended!
LONG LIVE THE 39TH BATTALION
