What people are saying about Darwin
Our day started early but was well worth it. We had a full bus of folks who were so good natured and happy all day. I think that was because of our guide Stevo and his relaxed positive and welcoming attitude and approach to the whole day. We enjoyed some delicious and fresh snacks and morning and afternoon teas which were spaced across the day very well. Lunch was a BBQ which was tasty but the bread rolls were super dry and the burger meat was super processed sausage meat. The bus was not the most comfortable of rides with not a lot of room but given we were getting on and off a lot there were plenty of opportunities to stretch our legs. We experienced some breath taking scenery including spectacular falls, rivers and water holes with the option to swim or walk or both. The level of activity was really up to you with no pressure and the timing of each visit was excellent so we didn’t feel rushed or bored. If you only had one day up the NT top end then this one day would not disappoint.
Daz our guide was fantastic. We all had a few laughs along the way and pick up was right on time. Daz knew a lot about the area. As we got to the jumping crocodile attraction, we met Pat. What a legend. It was worth going just to met Pat. Such a character. Barefoot with a gun and knife strapped to him he took us on our boat . Pat has a lot of passion for nature which shows when he speaks about the crocs that inhabit the Adelaide River. To see these ancient creatures up close ( right next to the boat) was mind blowing. We travelled further on to Leichfield Park. Amazing waterfalls. The water was refreshing and clear. After our first swim, we had wraps for lunch in the park. Wangi Falls was beautiful. We decided to go for the short walk to the tree tops which was a bit disappointing as there was a lot of stairs and nothing to see when we reached the top. I would defiantly recommend this tour. A new bus would be great for the guide as it had a broken clutch. Bring money to buy snacks
This was a fantastic tour a long day but so worth it for the comfort and way it was managed. The bus driver and assistant made it so enjoyable communication and presentation really well done. I would thoroughly recommend this tour for people who want to experience this part of the Northern Territory. Loved the morning tea/dinner stops, Edith Falls stop lunch (really nice) and the cruise down the Katherine Gorge with it's passionate informative guide so well done! You do have to be prepared for an extra long day because there are many kilometers covered.
Process for buying or getting pre-booked tickets is confusing for everybody. People start arriving at 7:30am and there is nobody directing traffic on the right place to queue. Yes, it’s written in the windows but there should be a person giving direction. Many people were in the wrong queue because they didn’t get to the window. The long boat ride could have more visual programming about the region, the aboriginals, etc...Delicious warm muffins! Good lunch!
Totally amazing. Very interesting A once in a lifetime experience . I really cannot overstate how much I enjoyed this tour and I got to take away with various things I made...with help....lol. Not made in China,! Wonderful
