    Ben was a great guide. The two evenings at the cabins were magical, especially the friendly kangaroos. Superb outdoor dinners were an unexpected bonus. I was able to check off "see a platypus in the wild" from my bucket list. Accommodations in the Scottsdale B&B were fine. We'll do it again if we can.
