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
Great tour lead by Mon! She was very fun and enthusiastic and engaged the whole group. She’s also a great cook! I enjoyed the tour very much. There was time for some napping on the bus, relaxing in the pool or at the waterfalls, some hiking, having a beer at the campsite at night, gaining more cultural knowledge and spotting wildlife. It truly felt like a mini vacation put in 3 days. There were also some pointers why I don’t give 5 stars. I felt like the tour was a little bit to focused on bird watching. I was expecting more of the general wildlife spotting and not so much focus on the birds. Might depend on the group though. I learned a lot but after 5 or 6 different species I’ve seen enough birds for a year. I would've liked some more time at the termite mounds. This part felt a bit rushed. Overall I think the tour has a very good pace. Definitely book this tour if you’re having doubts!
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
