Enjoyed the bus and boat trip, learned heaps and seen a lot . I highly recommend it to anyone.
Definitely recommend this tour, the guides were knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting.
The tour was very good. The driver was informative and fun .
It would be good if the tour included the aviation museum .
The driver was knowledgeable about the land sites we visited, and we thoroughly enjoyed the harbor cruise - he was funny and knowledgeable about the sites. The Darwin Military Museum was excellent, so informative the only complaint and that was out of the hands of Viator was the air conditioner was malfunctioning and it was so cold down to 15 degrees after being out in 33 degrees. You couldn't really enjoy sitting and taking it all in as it so uncomfortable with the cold. Overall a very good tour if you are interested in the history of the bombing of Darwin.
The Darwin WWII Museum is definitely worth a visit and this tour provides a great overview of both the city and how Darwin fared during the war.
Note: there is considerable overlap between this tour and the Darwin City Tour, so be prepared to cover the same ground.
The driver was friendly, the tour showed us the historical WW11 content promised - except for the oil storage tunnels. As guides ourselves (of the WW11 battery on Rottnest Island in WA) we were disappointed to not be given the chance to see them. By the time we found out about them, we were on a train out of Darwin!
