Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

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.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2014

The tour delivered everything it stated, and my accommodation was much better than expected. Thank you
Sadly no waterfalls were working in the Jim Jim Falls/ Twin falls day. I was not expecting that. I did have a nice swim tho..
