Our family of four had an amazing time today with Lee who was our incredibly informed and experienced guide for our 1 day tour of Kakadu. Lee shared a plethora of local knowledge gathered over years and his commentary, care for nature and ability to answer any question in depth was a highlight of the day. Ion the trip we made plenty of comfort stops and could buy from local roadhouses and water and a shared esky was provided. It was a long trip for one day and is really better experienced over three or more days. This was certainly a great introduction to the top end and Lee made it a highly educational and interactive experience, for example mid trip he stopped the bus, pointed out a grilled next lizard, caught it and brought it on the bud to show us! Highly recommend any tour with Lee as the guide! My questions were also answered quickly by emailing the company. We are now inspired to see much of the NT. Thanks Lee.

I think it was a really nice and interesting day filled with things to do and see. It was cool to see the landscapes, different types of trees, animals and rock formations. Dani was so lovely and really passionate about the area and what she was showing us. I’m really great full to have had the chance to go with her yesterday and to be told and have her explain the meaning behind the paintings, the ceremonies and some other fun fact about the different areas we were in.

Was a fantastic tour, the guide (Ben) was very knowledgeable and made the whole trip easy, will definitely recommend to anybody planning to go to Kakadu NP via a tour company to choose these guys. Although it was extremely hot, Ben made sure we all were keeping hydrated. Thanks again fro a fantastic tour.

Great trip. Very long day but great to see so much wildlife and learn about the area and see so much Indigenous art.

Dani was amazing! She was Informative, engaging, easy going, caring and a great bus driver! We all enjoyed it!
