It was great!!! We can recommend the tour to everyone, it was a very, very well organized trip. Very informative, exciting landscapes, we learned and saw a lot of Australia's flora and fauna in this region. Guide Gordon is a very good guide who fully identifies with his country. He puts his heart and soul into his job, explained and showed us a lot and answered all our questions. Many Thanks!!!

A long day but the driver / tour guide Michael made it interesting. Kakadu is amazing. Wallabies, wild horses, cattle , buffalo, native birds, ancient art, wetlands, yellow river cruise and crocs…Kakadu and Nourlangie art site walk. Well worth a visit. Bring your bottle and water will be topped up. Stops for breaks and stretches are provided. Tasty cold lunch buffet was included too.

The staff were absolutely great all the way through and our driver Kev and assistant Narelle went to great lengths to make our trip enjoyable.

It was a long day but well worth the trip. Seeing Kakadu in the wet season was amazing and to experience the wild life.

Only negative was difficulty in contacting local partner
