Could not fault the tour or the attractions but the guide was completely useless drove way below the speed limit all the time so many areas were we stopped for meals, sightseeing or for swims were cut short one area promised on the tour for a swim never happened returning from the Katherine gorge dinner cruise he got lost and drove around for over a half hour before he found the main road again.

We had the most magnificent tour seeing the wonderful sights of Kakadu, Katherine and Litchfield. Rob, our tour guide, was very passionate about this tour and his enthusiasm infected all of the 15 passengers on board this mini-4WD-coach. You have to do/see it to believe it. Fantastic!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

This was one of the best tours we have experienced anywhere in the world.
Our guide Rob was friendly, helpful and above all highly informative. His knowledge added greatly to the whole experience. From a billabong with crocs and many different birds and vegetation to the aboriginal rock paintings to the evening spent on the dinner boat through the wonderful scenery and swimming in the rock pools the whole trip was very good.
Great trip for all ages but perhaps not for those that cannot easily scramble over rocks and paths. .

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2013

I was looking forward to this tour and it did not disappoint me. I was amazed how much we saw in 3 days. It was a nice mix of driving, hiking and sightseeing. I appreciated all the information our tour guide gave us. The top end of Australia is an amazing countryside quite different from what I imagined. I liked traveling as a small group, there were just 9 of us plus our guide, and the hotels too were nice. The evening dinner cruise was perfect. Rob, our guide was cheerful and extremely helpful. I had a thoroughly enjoyable trip.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2011

This trip was probably the best we have ever taken. The driver / guide, Max, was wonderful. His knowledge of the area and sites was remarkable, such that I at first thought he was playing a recording, but no, it was just his obvious love of the region that came over in his commentaries. The Crocodile Hotel was excellent, especially the evening buffet, which we felt was good value for money. The All Seasons hotel /lodge was adequate but was obviously showing signs of tiredness. The sheets were clean but were not sparkling white and had little holes in them. The river cruise along The Katherine river, and the buffet supper, were amazing. Overall though it was a brilliant tour and really added to our once in a lifetime trip round Australia and has given us some wonderful memories to look back on now we are back in the cold, wet UK. Thank you.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2014

We really enjoyed the tour and Rob, our tour guide/driver, was outstanding. His knowledge of the history, culture, people and wildlife was entertaining as well as informative. We were able to see and experience so much in such a short time.

The experience before the tour began was disappointing. Phone calls to Viator Sydney for information and booking required waiting on hold for 10 to 15 minutes before being answered. We waited 5 days for answers to several emailed questions about the tour due to slow response from AATKing. Our confirmation document said pickup at our hotel (Hilton Darwin) would be at 8:00 AM. A later email from AATKing said pickup would be at 6:15 AM. I called AATKing the day before the tour and they confirmed 6:15. When there was no pickup by 6:45 I called AATKing to discover they had changed the time back to 8:00 AM. They had left a message on my mobile after I turned it off for the day but failed to leave a message at the hotel as well. This delay made what was already a long travel day even longer.
