The day was brilliant, from the prompt hotel pick up to being dropped off back at the same spot. Will, outré driver/guide was entertaining and knowledgable. The highlight for me was the Corroborree Billabong cruise. We were lucky enough to see three really large crocs up on the bank with a dead water buffalo. Out guide told us that this was very rare as crocodiles are very territorial but will put aside disputes for a good meal! Overall, a day trip I would heartily recommend.

Great trip. Superb driver, Dave, on the bus, very informative. Long drive but worth it. Mary River cruise fantastic. Ruben was an amazing host. Obviously very proud of his culture and the company he works for. Really did us all proud. All in all a very enjoyable day complemented by ther others on the tour, our hosts, the information provided and the scenery.

My wife and I loved the trip. Guide was very good and provided a lot of information. The birds were out of this world. Too hot for the crocs to show much.

It was a thoroughly outstanding day! The Ubirr art was misterious and very interesting, the nature trail fascinating and the Mary River Cruise out of this world!

This trip was extremely well organised. The driver/guide told us very interesting stories about aboriginal culture and provided us with information on the locations we traveled through on our way to Kakadu. Also the boat trip on the Mary river was very lovely and interesting.

Great experience, a long time spent on the bus but Ubirr and Mary River are worth it! Breathtaking landscapes and art, loads of wildlife to see and a nice and competent guide! A++

This was a long day, but very interesting and with great views. The tour had changed from our booking from Yellow River to Mary River Wetlands. Our guide was excellent. The visit to the aboriginal paintings were great and cultural was very educational but the highlight of the tour was the Mary River wetlands cruise. There was heaps of crocodiles and the water lilies were beautiful and too sit among them and sip on champagne and eat fruit was so peaceful. The bird life was wonderful. Overall the day was inspiring.

This was a wonderful Experience. Our Brazilian Guide, Fabiana was wonderful, with great local knowledge and a great manner. We saw great Aboriginal art, Museums and a wonderful cruise on the Mary River, with another great guide, who knew where all the crocodiles lived. I was surprised by the lack of bird life, which I believe is more evident on the Yellow River Cruise.

The tour of Kakadu was excellent and our tour guide, Fabiana, was one of the best I have experienced in many years. She has had extensive experience in South America and Australia and this tour is to be recommended. It was far superior to others I have done in this area.

This was a good way to explore Kakadu from Darwin. Especially enjoyed the Guluyambi cruise, didn't find like one of your other commentators that too much time was spent in cafes or shops. Had an excellent experience on the cruise, all around.

There is a lot of driving on this tour therefore only four stars, but the highlights Ubirr and especially the exciting Mary River Cruise were well worth the time on the bus. Our guide was very competent and provided a lot of information.

A very interesting day, the highly knowledgeable driver was a great help during the long travel distances. We enjoyed the rock art sites and the wetlands cruise especially the bird life. The many "off the bus" times were all positive experiences and seemed to be enjoyed by all age groups.

I had read a number of reviews before booking this tour. Some were not particularly good others were much better, so I was a little apprehensive. The tour was well and truly on the ball. The guide Rob (don't call me Bob or you will walk home) was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Before leaving Darwin, I had many questions I wanted answers for and never got to ask one; Rob in his on-route commentary had answered them all before we got to Ubirr. It's a long day but well worth it and in a rugged outback way comfortable, on the air-conditioned 21 seater bus. The buffet lunch at Jabiru was nice and a good break from the traveling. The Mary river with guide Tom was excellent and completed a very enjoyable day. If you only have one day and want a good taste of the aboriginal culture mixed in with the splendid wet lands and a pile of salt and fresh water crocs, this tour is for you.

A long day but a good experience. The coach drivers were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Loved the Aboriginal rock paintings. Saw a few crocs - including a huge one - and abundant bird life. The Aboriginal guide on the cruise was smart, funny and very willing to share his immense cultural knowledge. Thanks!

Good activities, beautiful places, but the bus is too crowded and not enough leg's room!

The Yellow River Cruise was absolutely Fantastic - so close to the animals in their natural habitat = GREAT Photos!!! (Better than Adelaide River Jumping Croc Cruise!!!!)
Excellent trip overall, driver/guide was very knowledgable (- well worth listening to).
But - if I paid to go to see "Ubirr" (as it was dry season and very accessible), why did we all go only to "Nourlangie" with everyone else instead (which was good, but could have gone here any other time)??
