Michael is a great guide. He explained the site and stories of Darwin in details. The whole itinerary was running smoothly. Perhaps my visit was during wet season (no rain though), we had a comparatively small group which was perfect.
Be warned, as this tour states, it will be a 12 hour day and it was! Though it may not be totally known or understood, but Australia is about the same size as the US, so going from Darwin to Kakadu is like going from Washington state to the Dakota's. It is a very long distance to traverse, but our driver and bus were up for the challenge. The bus was very comfortable and our awesome driver brought much Aussie wit to keep us awake, present and informed on the journey. Our first stop was just for a break, but imagine seeing wallabee's just bouncing around your local gas station and you will understand the impact of this tour. Our personal favorite was the yellow water tour where we saw many amazing creatures and had a very large crocodile just swim along side the boat for several minutes. There is plenty to see and do and this tour encompasses many passions whether it is understanding the local's, see vast landscapes or animal encounters. The only warning would be about the northern territory flies. They are everywhere and love being in you face, so if you have a chance to purchase a face net, I highly recommend it. True this may not be the fashion look you are going for, but swatting at flies as they creep into your eyes, ears, nose etc, may encourage you to look a little goofy for a few hours.
Excellent day out. Would strongly recommend paying the 250 AUD each to do the scenic flight, absolutely stunning! Driver/guide, Dave, very informative and friendly. Yellow river cruise was brilliant and we even saw a crocodile! Long day but well worth it.
Disappointed. Spent whole day in a bus and saw nothing. The only good thing was the Yellow Water tour. The rest was wasting time and driving around. Finally, we’ve spent 20 min at Nourlangie, didn’t even get the chance to walk to the lookout.
In short, won’t see much of Kakadu.
