VIP experience at Crocosaurus Cove - fed a huge croc (Burt), held a snake (Neville), blue-tongue lizard (Brian) and a baby croc (Fluffy). Fed juvenile crocs. The guide was informative and experienced. Convenient location in the middle of the City. Reasonably priced. Definitely recommend.

What a fantastic tour to the jumping crocodiles… Jacob our tour guide was so knowledgeable and fun at the same time… three years ago went with another company and this one beats it hands down.
