Outstanding trip, unique scenery and well-informed guiding. Even though it was a long day 5am-9pm, it was worth every minute. Only downside was high price for tickets.
A great tour. It's a long day but well worth while. There are two gorges to cruise through but if you don't feel able to walk over somewhat rocky ground to the second cruise there is a nice shady spot with chairs and iced water to sit a while and wait for the others to return. Dinner at Sapphire Springs on the return journey is optional but I would highly recommend putting your order in. The salt and pepper squid is VERY delicious.
the staff are perfect with great humor i love every minute
the only problem was the cold after the sunset
but we get reworded in the return with the snacks i absolutely loved the homemade bread they do in the farm.
thank you guys!!
This tour was wonderful! The pickup was smooth and timely, the bus was well equipped and the views impeccable. The best part of the whole day was the cruise on Katherine Gorge and our wonderful aboriginal guide. He was incredibly knowledgable and hearing about his own personal culture and heritage was an indescribable pleasure. This could only be improved by having traveled during wet season when the waterfalls are flowing!
Our guide, Murray, gave us a steady stream of information about Darwin and its surrounds while driving down the road to Corroboree Billabong. On the boat, he was quick to spot--and follow or stop as indicated--numerous birds and crocs. We were lucky that a dead water buffalo had attracted a large number of crocs, so we got many close-up views of the big creatures. The lunch provided was healthy and delicious--salad and cold cuts. This trip was a highlight of our trip to Darwin!
A great day seeing an amazing part of our country. The two drivers/tour guides would have made a trip to hell enjoyable. I recommend thi company and tour without any reservation.
Excellent. Good value.
Comfortable coach, knowledgeable guide, Flight option well worth it - excellent

long but very good day, bus driver/guide was excellent. Gorge cruise was the highlight of the day. Really enjoyed a nice meal at Emerald Springs on the way home. Happy to recommend this tour to other travellers.
Tour guides were very informative and connected well with us the tourist.
The Katherine Gorge trip was the highlight of our Darwin trip. Such a beautiful place. Excellent commentary during the boat trip through the gorge. The swim at Edith Falls was another highlight. Bus trips there and back were long, though.
wonderful experience. really fun riding the camels and the guide was a wealth of information. did anyone know there are about 30,000 wild camels in australia. and if you can get one you can keep it. highly reccommed the tour. cynthia
We really enjoyed it -- the people working here were all so friendly and genuinely seeming to enjoy what they're doing that made it really fun. If you've been on other camel rides, note that this has a line of 10 or so camels 2 lines for the whole group, and so it isn't like you have control or a sense of independence, but it was fun to learn about the camels, flora and insect life of the area from the guide.
It was great. Worth it.
All employees that we encountered were extremely patient, polite and friendly. The entire experience was top notch. Loved the end when there were samples of the food sold in the gift shop as well as drinks. Would totally recommend this experience.
Despite some poor quality tents the trip was really very very good. It all boikled down to one of the best guides/hosts we have experienced over the years Timi. He is very respectful towards the clents, the aboriginal culture and the flora and fauna. He takes the time to engage his group in starting to understand the values of respect for all and makes it with a smile and winning way. A great trip.
Great tour! Debbie was a great host and everything went to plan which was down to her expertise. Great day.
Great Tour. Highly recommend it:
4.5 stars -- beautiful sunrise. Fun experience. Great pictures.
Jules the tour leader is a very knowledgable guy who was able to explain all the history and folklore of the indigenous people of the Uluru area. The big problem during the travel was the PA System in the Convered Truck being used as a 'bus' not up to the job.
Uluru is magnificent and well worth the trip to get to see it at sundown and dawn. However the cheap plastic toothbrush holder cups for the bubbly when all around have champagne flutes signals the cheapness of this trip.
Getting up at 4.30am is not a problem when the camp, that you stay at, is so basic. Having no lights to even get to the tents, or to get changed by, is not good. This is such a basic amenity to provide? The swag is not as warm as Jules suggests in the middle of winter!
The 'guests' paying customers are expected to do all the cleaning up and even cooking their own lunches. So if you expect Glamping then this is not for you.
Katherine gorge was magnificent and well worth the long drive
