    Our tour guide Rox was amazing. She provided a detailed tour all the way to the croc farm. And included jokes and humour. Bus was very comfortable. The croc farm was amazing. Mango ice blocks - yum. The boat guys and the jumping crocs were amazing. They were knowledgeable and funny. Loved the whole day.

    Not Just Crocs
    Verity_P, May 2023
    Great flood plain stop and the fog dam on the way back to Darwin, great bird life. Jumping crocs were great, also got to see a "tussle" between two females and the kites also visited, so majestic.
    Fun day out with the crocs.

    Bus driver's friendly, kind nature, she is a good, people- person, explained a lot to us all the way in professional, fun way. The cruise guide with his fun nature and as a well explained crock trip by him. We couldn't see energetic crocks this time, as into maiting and wet season in Darwin.

    Great tour, if you want to see the biggest crocodiles around!!! Our Bus driver was very informative about the local bird life and Darwin surrounding areas. Highly recommend
    The Croc Cruise was the winner.., wetlands thumbs down
    Susie_D, July 2022
    The bus driver wasn’t very enthusiastic until we went arrived at the Wetlands when he started talking about every bird great for people who are into birds. The best part of trip was the Croc cruise which was a lot of fun.

    A great tour whilst travelling the top end. Awesome how both sides of the boat got to experience seeing the crocodiles jumping without an interrupted view.
    Response from Host, July 2022
    Thank you so much Michelle
    A great tour
    Ian_H, July 2022
    We had an amazing time. The commentary was excellent with a lot of humour added. The crocs were scary and definitely something you wouldn’t pat! A trip well worth doing!!
    They sure do jump
    Geoffrey_M, July 2022
    Great day out, we took lots of pictures and received lots of information about the area and all the local wild life.
    An OK activity
    Michael_B, July 2022
    Well organized, great driver, standard activity, NO MICROPHONE- could not hear the commentary AT ALL and this made the activity a lot less meaningful.
    Jumping crocs.
    grace_m, July 2022
    Only witnessed 2 crocs.jumping.Not so many of them as the weather was not conducive.i expected to see a lot of crocodiles jumping as on the advert but none was closer to what was advertised.
    Croc’s Live
    noosaglades1, May 2022
    Our tour was amazing We’d no sooner got into the boat when the Crocs were around.. great work by the staff to ensure we all had a chance at viewing the crocs jumping
    Great exper
    Phillip_B, May 2022
    The croc tour and foggy dam were awesome. Unfortunately I left my expensive hat on the bus when I got out and the operator said their cleaners did not report a hat being found even though I left the bus and went direct to my room and realised it was missing. Great tour would recommend it otherwise. Don't leave anything on the bus.
    Very disappointing
    janet_p, May 2022
    Very disappointing was not a small group we had 34 on our bus with NO air conditioning did not visit the Window on Wetland visitor centre. No hand sanitizer on board and a bus driver with little knowledge Would not book a AAT Kings Tour again
    Response from Host, May 2022

    Not for the Faint Hearted
    Praneel_K, Apr 2022
    If you love crocs, be sure to check out this cruise. All of the tour guides (including the skipper) are very friendly and welcoming, which made the experience that much better! Not recommended for those faint of heart
    Excellent Crocodile 🐊 experience with Great guides.
    Monica_P, Apr 2022
    Micheal our guide is a wealth of information and knowledge about the area, the indigenous people, the animals, birds and reptiles including the plants. The Jumping Crocodile 🐊 cruise guides were excellent another great team of knowledge about the Crocs in the Adelaide river, the indigenous people of the area as well as a lot of fun. Highly recommend this experience…thanks guys.

    Darren_T, Oct 2021
    Seeing the Crocs up close in their natural habitat, and the information given by the guide. We would of liked to of seen a few more of the males but they weren’t being very pro active in meeting us on the day.
    Response from Host, Oct 2021
    Dear Darren_T, Thanks for your feedback, and we are glad that you were able to see the Croc's on our tour. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in the Top End, and we look forward to welcoming you back on board again in the future. Thanks, The Team at AAT Kings
