This was an excellent tour, and I would highly recommend it. There were lots to see, especially if you took the optional joy flight at extra cost. We saw aboriginal art sites, waterfalls and plunge pools and the fabulous Yellow Waters wetlands area. The Croc hotel was fine with the meals adequate. There was one issue in that the Viator website and app suggested that the tour included some canoe paddling. This has not been the case for many years in the particular area and should be corrected. We liked the fact that the three days were actually 3 separate day tours, giving great variety and different people to mix with.
The tour was fascinating. There were three peaks: Yellow Water, Ubirr, East Alligator River.
The tour to the falls is beautiful. However, the guide suggested that we don't go all the way to Jim Jim Falls since the track is hard, so we stopped about half way. Retrospectively, it was a mistake. Rather than deterring us he should encourage and offer to help us. I am sure we could have made it.
Other than that we don't have any critique. It was great. The guide on the the third day, Robert, was super. The Crocodile Hotel is very good.
