This was great! The first day is more "classic" for the average tourits, although it is well scheduled, the time is well occupied, the driver gave very interesting comments all the day long. We selected the crocodile hotel option and it was great, good food, relaxing small swimming pool. The second day in Arnhem was much more specific of the aborigenal culture, history, life, landscape. In a more remote part, we had a very instructive and documented talk by the driver about paintings, life, education, belief, burial, of aborigenal people of this particular place, as well as discussion on the issues of the revolution that european people arrival was for them and today's attempts to solve the problems.
The logistics was great, with fresh fruits under a tree the morning, and picnic on the shore of a billabong with beautiful sight and lot of birds. We also saw a croc on the way crossing the river.
For me the 2 days option is better than 1 day.
Extremely informative and interesting. Great accommodation and brilliant tour guides; particularly Peter Love on the Kakadu tour. Very professional and unique with his dissemination of information and local knowledge. Coupled with that was his personality and ability to relate to all his passengers regardless of age.
The four wheeled tour of Arnhem Land was also a truly unforgettable and spiritual experience and professionally conducted.
We enjoyed the trip a great deal. The guide was really helpful and knew a lot. The river trips were wonderful, and we also took the optional extra of flying above Kakadu in a small plane which was also fun.
Everything ran very smoothly, and the only thing that wasn't so good was the over priced buffet meal at the hotel we stayed in. The food was very ordinary and because they offer the only real option for meals it felt like they charged what they wanted which was a great deal more than it was worth.
However our over riding memories are very positive and we certainly had 2 terrific days.
I can't say enough good things about AAT Kings tours. Drivers are knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The Crocodile Hotel was interesting but their $65 dinner/breakfast special was not worth that much money. The guides on the boat tours did a very good job; they knew their flora and fauna on the South Alligator River cruise and did a wonderful job, especially the demonstration with the spears, on the East Alligator River (Arnhem Land Tour).
Wow - what an exhausting trip but well worth it. Our tour guide for the entire trip was Shaun and he was truly a wealth of knowledge. This is the only way to see Kakadu - what a wonderful learning experience
Love the tour. Highlight of the first day was the Yellow Waters cruse (very knowledgeable guide) and the flight over the Kakadu park. We stay in the lodge over night in Kakadu caravan park. Accommodation was better then we have expected. First day was with a big group a bit too commercial. Second day was perfect, really got the feel of the place. There were only three of us and the guide. Was more personal tour, no rush. Think that the guide's name was Allen. He is local and knows aboriginal culture well, lots of stories. A bit disappointed that didn't see many artists in the cultural center, been explained that they had some ceremony or something. In general, love the experience.
Loved the trip, hotel was great. Driver /guides were involved and interesting. Expensive! I could have flown to Fiji for 3 days for the sane price.
What a fantastic adventure! A real Ozzy experience and far exceeded my dreams. Had thought when booking that it was a bit expensive but well worth the money. Crocodilesat close range, amazing wildlife from blue wing kookabuuras to white bellied sea eagles and whistling kites. Highlight was the visit to Arnhem Land and the Oenpelli settlement. A day of understanding their culture and viewing rock art. Guides were brilliant and hugely knowledgeable.
Making the booking was perfectly straight-forward and easy to understand. Our tour was very interesting and covered all the points outlined in the tour description. The tour guide was highly knowledgable and friendly even with our children on the tour and answered questions with a smile. We would certainly use this company again in the future when we return to other parts of Australia.
I was totally blown out by the wonderful sites I visited. The trip into Arnhem land was fabulous. Our guide was full of information and cultural sensitivity. I was quite worried that I might get a guide who was not sympathetic to the indigenous culture, but I was wrong! Both the driver who took me to Kakadu and the driver who took me to Arnhem land were totally committed to the indigenous culture. It was superb - I took the plane trip over Kakadu and I will never forget it.
Very good and rewarding tour, that gave me the opportunity to explore both the Australian wildlife and the aboriginal culture. Excellent and professional tour guides made this tour a very enjoyable experience.
Excellent guides are very often the key to this sort of tour and the guys we had were great. Kakadu and Arnhem Land were just amazing to visit and such a great experience. The Guluyambi Cruise is especially worthwhile for the time spent with the Indigenous guides.
Kakadu and the Yellow Waters were great, but the Arnhem Land tour was absolutely fantastic!
