I really enjoyed this tour. I learned a lot about Darwin's wartime experience through the guides and museum. The tour is well organised and just the right length, the Harbour cruise is enjoyable and informative and the museum is impressive and thought provoking.

We enjoyed the whole day, from the bunker in the bush (and its informative display boards), to the cruise around the bay and out to the USS Peary with a great commentary and ANZAC bikkies (!), to the fantastic new MIlitary Museum at East Point. An American man on our tour remarked that it was the best war museum he has seen. The Bombing of Darwin sequence is unforgettable. Thank you so much.

We would highly recommend doing this half day tour for anyone interested in WW11 and Darwin's history . Rob was our bus tour guide he had a great sense of humour and was quite entertaining. He told us some very interesting facts and stories whilst we were driving around to see the historical sights and Wartime Museum. We transferred onto Jim's boat and as a tour guide he was very knowledgeable and proud of the history of Darwin and the stories were very informative and great to hear and see the sights from the water, Ross was also steering the boat and we had a few laughs at his expense ! All good fun, a great half day tour !

It was a choppy day so we couldn't make it all the way to the memorial, well we could have but the guides said we'd all be soaking wet; so a vote went against it. What can I say the tour guides were fantastic, locals certainly can make the trip most informative and also by adding amusing anecdotes they make the whole trip feel like a friends get together. By the end of it all passengers were interacting with each other a truly good experience. My only regret is not having the time to go on the "Fish and Chip" special sunset tour but the next day speaking with those that did they stated it was enjoyable and not at all formal again more like a friends get together. Maybe next time :)

Coach was clean and comfortable. Driver/ guide has extensive experience in Darwin and was clear about the history. Interesting sites and certainly enough time to see everything properly. Boat cruise was interesting and also well researched. Half a day was a good amount of time for the tour.

It was very interesting tour and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. The Boat for the cruise was not working so they added tour of the Aviation Museum instead, which was great.

The half day tour was originally chosen to fill a time gap waiting for a return flight south. pick up and drop off at the hotel were punctual and trouble free. Even though I had been to Darwin as part of the clean-up after cyclone Tracy I found the general drive around very interesting after so long. Concerning the WWII aspect it showed much that I had been unaware of beforehand. The tour was quite relevant to WWII Darwin and largely unknown to most Australians.Both the land and water guides were well up with their subject, providing an enjoyable experience.

Our coach driver/tour guide was very informative. Unfortunately the harbour was too rough on the day to fully complete the cruise but our last stop at the WW11 museum really made up for it.
