“Perfect Tour”
- WA, Australia Oct 2017

This was the perfect tour for us. The 4WD tour was excellent. Rich was a passionate guide and got us climbing the rocks to see some awesome rock art. This was done at a leisurely pace and no question was stupid. Beautiful lunch by a billabong. Croc hotel was a good base for this tour as well and food was reasonably priced. We also did the scenic flight on the first morning and was dropped off at Jabiru Airport and flew over Kakadu to Cooinda where we met the coach again to do the Yellow River...read more

“Very memorable trip. ”

“Kakadu and West Arnham Land”
- Vic, Australia Sep 2016 View Photo

Highly recommend this tour. Guides knowledgeable, punctual and helpful. Stayed two nights at Aurora Resort where the room was spacious and comfortable but dinner at night was average and breakfast expensive. Recommend taking a packet of muesli bars and and some bananas and waiting for the morning tea stop. A good mix of activities during each day: billabongs, rock art, river cruises. Very special day in Arnham Land—a surprisingly different landscape from Kakadu—where we visited Injalak Arts Centre...read more

“A thoroughly enjoyable experience”
- Australia Jul 2014

We found some repetition occurred across the days. The Guluyambi Cultural cruise was both entertaining and informative. There was a short delay in being picked up from our hotel on the first day and some confusion with being returned to our hotel on the final day, but all was well in the end. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. A great...read more

“Would recommend it for all Australians to do”

It was a great trip. Everything when to schedule. We were picked up on time. The tour guides were great. Accommodation was good but expensive, but no real problem. Would recommend it for all Australians to do.
