Highly recommended! AAT Kings drivers were amazing. Full of knowledge and knew how to keep the trips interesting with fun facts and lighthearted humor. 3rd party contractors - indigenous and non-indigenous - were also very knowledgable and kept the long days interesting and entertaining. I would recommend choosing the Crocodile hotel, if budget allows, as the Aurora Kakadu left a lot to be desired.
Overall - I'd highly recommend this package deal!
A great way to see a range of different places and sites within Kakadu National Park and Arnhem Land. It was an excellent tour - well organised and it ran very smoothly. Arnhem Land & Kakadu lived up to my expectations. The guides were both knowledgeable and professional. I was able to see both Kakadu and Arnhem Land, the countryside was stunning, so green, lots of bird life and crocodiles. It is a fabulous part of the country and I would highly recommend the trip.
Excellent tour, well organised and on time. Crocodile hotel was very good but the restaurant was expensive and the food was of poor quality. All guides on the tour were very good and gave good information. Response to our request for gluten free food was patchy.
We enjoyed the 3 day tour 7 found it very interesting. The 3 guides were all very knowedgeable and good company.

It was an excellent tour - well organised and it ran very smoothly. Arnhem Land & Kakadu lived up to my expectations. The guides were both knowledgeable and professional. We were able to see Kakadu and Arnhem Land in a relatively short time. It is a fabulous part of the country and I would recommend the trip. The Aurora Kakadu was a great place to stay
A fascinating trip, fantastic scenery, and bird life. I saw enough enormous salt water crocodiles to last a good while. The second day traveling into Arnhem land with an indigenous guide was a great opportunity . I chose the middle accommodation option the Aurora Kakadu and this was a great place to stay, large comfortably furnished bungalow with a lovely pool and very good meals served in the restaurant.
If you stay at Kakadu Hotel be aware apart from the 3 course buffet meal at A$45.90 there are only a few snacks in shop. The Bar/Bistro which normally serves hot dishes strangely enough doesn and #39;t when the 2night stopovers are there. We purchased hot snacks in shop but not allowed to eat them in Bar!
It's a bit of a slog out of or back to Darwin but the AAT Kings coaches are comfy, have wifi and drivers are really nice guys. The Aurora was a good place to stay with attractive room, porch, pool to cool off in and friendly bar/bistro. Quiet too. All the subcontractors used were great: knowledgeable and keen to please. You get both Kakadu highlights and Arnhem Land by 4WD plus a river trip with a fun couple of local Aboriginal guys. Really packed it in and so glad I did it. Downside: left me wanting more.
terrific what was packed into 3 days - even a day in Arnhem Land - could never do that on our own
Really enjoyed the 3 days - especially the 4WD day out in Arnhem Land - magical. The rock art and views from the top of Ubirr were also breathtaking. Could happily spend much more time exploring Kakadu and surrounds. The Croc Hotel was also an experience!
We really enjoyed this trip. The bus was very comfortable and the bus drivers excellent drivers as well as tour guides. We saw lots of rock paintings, the countryside was magnificient, so green, lots of bird life and crocodiles. The flight over the escarpment was breath taking. The incursion into Arnhem Land was a highlight, it was great to meet some of the local artists. It was a leisurely day which meant we could just sit and take in the scenery. The boat trips were terrifc. The Crocodile Hotel at Jabaru was a bit jaded, really just a motel. Given that Kakadu is on people's bucket list and people make a great effort to get there I think they could make their guests feel a lot more special, that said, the staff were pleasant and efficient
What appears as a single trip is actually a series of mini trips, with different combinations of participants each day.
