We did this tour in March 2024. It was worth every dollar we paid. Elliot was an excellent tour guide. His knowledge of the flora and fauna, wildlife and indigenous culture is excellent. We learnt so much about the medicinal and degustation qualities of our natural plants, animals, and land. What made the trip most memorable as well as stated, was his wonderful, dry, 'digger' sense of humour. Truly Australian humour that is highly entertaining. The beauty of Kakadu is not to be missed. This ancient land should be complusory viewing for every Australian, you are travelling in Ancient land that is unique in the world and worthy of high respect. We chose to go to Fogg Dam and we chose wisely. The wildlife and birdlife was amazing. The scenery is spectacular. If you want to see authentic Australia, do this trip. You will be immersed in the heartland of our spiritual land. Thank you Elliot for a truly memorable day.

Our tour was with another couple and was fantastic - Geoff was very knowledgeable and shared his experience with us! He tailored the tour to suit our needs to make it the most enjoyable tour we did whilst on our recent Darwin Holiday. This tour is totally value for money and worth booking.

Great day. Our driver and guide’s knowledge of the area, Indigenous history and culture, habitats and interaction of the wildlife and flora was outstanding. Although it was a long day, all our needs were thoughtfully catered for. Unforgettable memory.

Absolutely wonderful day! Tim, Damo and Rick were amazing guides, so attentive and accommodating! I was the only one to opt out from jumping crocs and they did individual tour for me to Fogg Dam instead! Legends!

Micheal was so informative,fun and a safe driver. visited great places... awesome time
