This was great. It was a long bus trip to get there but well worth it. Sheldon took us out onto the yellow river where we seen plenty of crocs and wildlife and he was so enthusiastic. That was all good but the highlight was definitely the flight back to Darwin. From the air you can see just how vast and beautiful this area of Australia is. I'm glad we paid the extra money to do it.
Well guided tour of a National Park. This is an excellent air conditioned tour for anyone who likes someone else to take control and organise a set program. Chris was our bus driver/tour guide was very knowledge and enthusiastic to pass on information....There was also the well need airconditioning and icy cold water.
The Aborginal or Indigneous captain/guide for the cruise was priceless. The personal knowledge and stories told were an incite to the Indigenous culture...
As for the flight with Pilot James originally from Melbourne, we were the only two passengers on the flight. That in itself was Great, as it was a small plane on a very hot day. It's mind boggling seeing Kakadu by air, as it is just so incredibly huge. The landscape is vast with the opportunity of seeing twin falls, the mines and of course the lay of the land. We got picked up from a designated area and bused to the small airport. It's a very personal service and there is a taped commentary regarding the landscape during flight. Back on land the small airstrip has air-conditioning, toilets, cold water and a souvenir shop!
Long day, lots of travelling, but good range of experiences - yellow river boat trip was outstanding. Harris, the coach driver and guide, was v pleasant and knowledgeable.
We had a great time at Kakadu.
The flight over The Arnhem was magnificient and most enjoyable.

Fantastic tour. Extremely knowledgeable bus driver/tour guide. Wonderful cruise on Yellow Waters and saw heaps of crocs and bird life, especially a male and female jabiru. Would recommend this tour.

Excellent experience the tour guide was very knowledgeable and was very informative, Well done Neville.
The Arnhem Land Flight was worthy, unbelievable, great experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and commentaries. The flight over Arnhamland was an added perspective of this rich and fascinating land
For anyone with only one day to travel to Kakadu, this bus tour is an absolute MUST. The natural wonders of this awe-inspiring part of the Top End are amazing - something that all Australians and visitors should experience if they have the chance, I would also highly recommend the optional flight over Arnhem Land - seeing this vast ancient land from the air is a real privilege and gives another perspective on the vast size of Kakadu. Booking through Viator was easy and professionally-managed and the organisation and service on the tour was excellent. I don't normally do organised bus tours, but I was very impressed with every part of this day's itinerary. The Yellow Waters cruise was fantastic for seeing huge crocodiles up close, plus dozens of varieties of birds. There was also time for an easy bush walk in the Nourlangie Rock area with the added wonder of seeing aboriginal cave paintings. The tour finished with drinks and nibbles overlooking the wetlands outside Darwin and a magnificent Top End sunset.

This tour was excellent and well worth it. Kakadu is too big to do by yourself and the amenities and staff were exceptional. The tour guide made sure we were well hydrated and full of local knowledge. The flight over Arnhem land although an additional cost is a must. The flight was magical seeing more of the land than possible from the ground. Every seat in the plane has a window and the captain was very knowledgeable. Yellow waters cruise was nice and relaxing and a great way to come up close to the crocodiles in the water. The Buffet lunch was very filling and plenty of time to relax before moving onto the next location. Ending the day at Window on the Wetlands with wine tasting was a nice way to end the day. The tour operator was one of the best in Darwin.

Fantastic trip. No time to get tired on the long trip. Thoroughly recommended. Flight over the waterfalls was worth every cent.
This was the highlight of our trip to Darwin and the North Coast. If you have but one day to spare, take this tour. The bus driver was fantastic and provided a lot of local information. Being an avid photographer, the yellow water tour far exceeded my expectations for Birds and Crocks and the Arnhem flight tied all the information together for a great NT trip. My hats off to the tourcompany for a job well done!

Scenic Flight is definitely worth doing - Kakadu and Arnhem Land just goes on forever - can really only appreciate the vastness by air. Shame the CD with commentary was jumpy though. Wouldn't recommend more than 50 minute flight as it can get bumpy and quite hot in there. The 2 hour Yellow Waters cruise was sensational - brilliant commentary by ranger. Buffet lunch was great - large range and plenty to go around. Nourlangie Rock and cave art a must see - would've liked to see older paintings though. The guides were entertaining and knowledgeable. The cheese and wine at the end was a lovely touch to end an excellent day!
I have just returned from Darwin and took this tour whilst I was there. The tour was excellent, our tour guide was informative and helpful. The coach was clean and comfortable. The Yellow water cruise was fabulous and again the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative. I will certainly recommend this tour to everyone I know. Thank you for a great day.

If you have a limited time to see Kakadu, this tour gives you a nice taste of what's offered. The Yellow Waters cruise is a highlight - just fabulous!
Cliff H Australia
Great day journey and terrific driver. Good and entertaining commentary. Able to soak up and enjoy all aspects of the trip. The wetlands to finish the day was a great touch.
Paul S USA
The bus operator had a polished, informative and entertaining talk, as well as nature DVDs to fill in the long drive to/from Darwin. The highlights are the cruise on the Yellow Water estuary (from a self-confessed bird nerd) and the huge termite mounds.

I thought this Kakadu tour was excellent. I would definitely recommend it.
A comfortable coach for a long day with good roadhouse breaks. A very knowledgeable entertaining guide.
Long way to go but well worth it . We were kept entertained by the driver who was very knowledgeable about the area and the history. Yellow waters was truly amazing. Beautiful sight!!
