Such a great experience! Everyone was friendly and accommodating. We were late for the shuttle pick up at our hotel and they left without us totally our fault, but the tour company was kind enough to send someone to drive us to the meeting point on the Adelaide River. Peter from AAT Kings was full of knowledge and local insight, turning our mistake into a wonderful drive. The cruise itself was awesome, very informative and exciting. We saw 5-6 salt water crocs up close and they all jumped. The only down part was we were on the small boat and my husband and I both super pale got stuck sitting at the front in full sun. Probably had a better view though! After watching these massive animals launch themselves out of the water we headed to the Window on the Wetlands, which is kind of sad and needs an upgrade. Please give them your support and dollars, because it could be great. Last stop was Fogg Dam Nature Reserve, which was closed for walking due to crocodiles, but we were able to drive across and our guide provided lots of good information and pointed out all sorts of wildlife including rare birds and wallabies. Again, super friendly and informative. Will definitely do another AAT Kings tour if we go back to Australia.
This was a fantastic tour. Enough stops on the road to stretch or get a snack. Kakadu is beautiful and the petroglyphs are definitely worth a visit. Great to stand at the same place as Crocodile Dundee and look out over the vast area. Stunning!
What fun to see the crocs up close and see them leap out of the water. Needless to say, keep all arms and legs inside the boat at all times.

What an amazing tour. We saw many crocodiles and birds, including Willy Wag Tail fledgelings making their first flights. But the grande finale was a crocodile with a wallaby in its jaws!!!
Unbelievable experience, Evan was an amazing guide providing an excellent experience that will be remembered for a lifetime.
The entire day was managed professionally and with a minimum of fuss, lunch was fantastic and enjoyed amongst surroundings that were truly breathtaking.
We would do this tour again !!!
Loved this day tour to Kakadu. The tour guide was knowledgeable, the sights amazing, and because it was a small group we were able to ask as many questions as we wanted. It was a hot climb up Ubirr Rock, but well worth it, the views were fantastic.
Nice river cruise. Crocodile Pat, the greatest
This was the highlight of our Darwin visit. What a treasure these wetlands are. In the 2.5 hour cruise we saw every animal mentioned on the brouchure, in a relaxing atmosphere, scrumptious salad bowl lunch, plenty of cool water and a very knowlegeable and friendly guide Evan who made sure we had plenty of photo opportunities. Excellent!
A day is simply not enough to experience this vast pristine environment. Would love to come back again for a 3-4 day trip through the area
Really really Good!!
Billabong cruise lovely. Great photos e.g. jabiru and sea-eagle. Saw couple of salties. Evan was very informative and considerate in providing photo opportunities.
Brilliant day out, even the the flat tyre in the bus on the way home was a good laugh with old guys fighting over who was going to change the tyre !!!
The girls that ran the croc tour were very professional, had a great sense humour . They got us nice and close to the action. A day won't ever forget. Cheers Girls. Regards Brad, WA
1st and 3rd days were AATKings and 2nd day Gagudju Adventure tours. Sheldon, Hiram? and Rob were fantastic and their apparent knowledge was impressive. Kudos to each for making each day memoriable and enjoyable. The room at the crocodile hotel in Jabiru was fine and we had evening meals in the hotel restaurant which were very good.
Overall, the trip was fantastic and highly recommend - although every place we went to can be done independently just as easily but we'd not have learnt as much.
The 1st day offered an optional 50min plane trip from Jabiru to Cooinda for 250 ppx. It was fantastic and well worth doing to see Kakadu from a different perspective. If Jim jim closed check 1st ask pilot to fly over it as not allowed to when open. Also the NT Entertainment book offers 50 off for Kakadu Air trips.
Yellow water cruise encapsulated everything we envisaged Kakadu was and then some. A few small crocs but birdlife in abundance. Geologist Adam, our skipper, saw a Jabiru in the far distance and got us nice and close. Could have kept cruising all day...
Nourlangie lookout was good but requires good mobility.
The 2nd day had Jim Jim closed so we went to Gunlom and Maguk instead. These were fantastic replacements and we had no complaints. Saw everything feral besides pigs and driver slowed/stopped on each occurence to allow plenty of photos. The climb to Gunlom upper pools and lookout require a fair deal of mobility and effort but are worth it. The lower pool aint bad either! Maguk is more easily accesible but requires a 10 min walk with some climbing of rocks.Swimming in each is available but at own risk - most swam.
Ubirr was magical. Views from atop were stunning but again required good mobility.
Border store owners were very friendly. Lemongrass iced tea recommended. Their Thai is renowed by Bininj and Balanda alike in these parts.
The cultural cruise on the east Alligator river was chocka block full of crocs near Cahills crossing and enjoyable. Ranger mine driveby good.
Long trip but well worth the time, Deb was very knowledgeable and good fun and the scenery was spectacular. Charlie made the Wetlands Cruise very interesting and had a lot of information about the crocodiles and the birds. Would highly recommend this tour.

The tour was great, the guide was most informative and gave an excellent commentary from the moment we were picked up till we returned. The meal provided was great too.

My wife and I would like to thank Evan our driver , firstly his knowledge shows his interest in the area
and secondly the effort he put in to try and make our day memorable was super
Great tour! Seeing all of the wildlife and crocs was great.
This tour was amazing!
Would highly recommend this tour. Was one of the highlights of our trip
Our guide was very thoughtful and the Wetlands River Cruise was fantastic.
The tour was amazing! Our tour guide Deb was a great people person who had all of the local knowledge! She was the reason I rated the tour 5 stars.
The girls on the spectatula cruise were awesome
Excellent tour leader driver, boatman, commentator all in one ,Evan, made this good tour really excellent. We learned a bit about Darwin, and about all the spots on the way to Corroboree Billabong. We then loaded onto a boat, were given our lunch boxes, and treated to good, informed commentary from our guide who plainly loves the natural outdoor life. Saw plenty of birdlife and several crocs.
Saw a lot of Kakadu that we wouldn't have seen on our own. Very tired at the end of the day
