The tour guide Evan Definitely made the tour with his jokes and quick thinking, I don’t think there was anything he didn’t know about Darwin and surrounding areas and it’s wildlife. Lunch was a really fresh salad and 3 types of cold meats. My friends and I really enjoyed this tour.

From the pick up to our drop off back at our hotel, our day was full on and enjoyable. Our guide Even was an encyclopaedia of local knowledge and history. Nothing was a problem to him and the day turned out great, would recommend this day trip to anyone wishing to see one of the NT's sites.

Our guide, Evan, was knowledgable, friendly and provided lots of laughs. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Darwin.

One of the best day tours I have taken part in. If you are into The wildlife it is a MUST! We saw a lot of crocs. Took excellent pictures. Tasted some bush tucker straight from water or trees. And so many other memorable experiences! And most importantly: EVAN, the guide, driver and the boat driver in one was simply a top professional. Facts, jokes, numbers, anectodes etc...The best tour guide I have come across Down Under. Period.
