This trip was well worth the long drive. The driver Alison was very informative in relation to Darwins history and it on going development, the aboriginal culture and the stories behind indigenous paintings. The buffet lunch was delicious and enjoyed by all. The Mary River cruise was fantastic and refreshing. Ruben was a wonderful guide and passionate about his heritage. Overall even though I have lived in Australia for 57 years I am still learning about this magnificent country and its people. I would recommend this trip to all visiting Darwin.
Driving rather lengthy but rock art and water trip fabulous Reuben was a great guide in the water
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.
The coach was clean and comfortable. Driver/ guide was well informed and friendly. The day was well paced; Ubirr was wonderful and the cruise was very enjoyable. I'd do it again - thank you for a great day
very informative and helpful guides, enjoyable and fun day with a good lunch provision
An excellent tour. Well organised, our tour guide/driver was excellent also, very informative, friendly. Had a great day, and loved the sites covered.
Had a fantastic guide who made the day pass so quickly and enjoyably.
Excellent tour. Well planned. Very informative guides (and drivers). Thank you Rob and Robert for the wonderful day.
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.
Excellent trip. The day flew. Our guide Allison was very friendly and knowledgable- and Reuben who operated the cruise was fantastic.thoroughly enjoyable and educational day.
This tour was great from pick up to drop off ,provided a great opportunity to see Aboriginal art .
Lunch was great just what was needed on a hot day fresh salad in air-conditioned resort. Our tour guide Alison was polite and very knowledgeable on her subject. The info was just right- not a non stop monologue often provided by guides. Alison had the right balance of humour and was careful to ensure everyone had water/sunscreen for the walk to the aboriginal art .
Reuben the guide on the Mary river wetlands cruise was passionate, delightful, funny and certainly knowledgeable on his subject. Reuben knew the locations of many of the birds species and took time to ensure everyone on board had located and pictured the species. The treat was the glass of bubbly and fruit provided sitting in the boat listening to the sounds of the birds
Wonderful and amazing and the guide went out of his way to please us. Highly recommend
Tour was conducted at a good pace. Both the guides were knowledgeable and friendly. My family and I enjoyed the trip very much. Highlight of the trip was definitely seeing the crocs in their natural habitat and standing off around the buffalo.
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.
