Informative trip
Jacqueline_D, Feb 2023
Ben, our tour guide was very informative and did his best to help us during the day. We had terrible weather but he made the most of the day for us.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Jacqueline, We're glad to hear you enjoyed your day on the Blue Mountains with Ben! Hopefully next time you'll have a sunny day on tour with us :) Kind regards, Luis

Ben was amazing ! Very knowledgeable with his commentary and looked after us so well ! Would highly recommend this tour !
Long day
NATALIE_C, July 2022
The jumping crocs were good although we didn't see many. Driver was knowledgeable but did not help anyone on and off bus. Told us we had a 2 hr walk in the heat, but it was a walk n talk, mostly talk. He didn't tell us there were plenty of seats along the way. No hygiene practised, many on bus coughing and sneezing and now I'm sick! I wonder why!
Substandard bus for a long trip
Robert_M, July 2022
Great guide and magnificent location but the bus was substandard. Very poor seating for a 10 hour drive. I would recommend another tour company.
A long way and not a huge amount to see
Susanna_L, July 2022
You realise on this tour how far from Darwin is from Kakadu and how big Kakadu is. We left very early in the morning (around 7.30 p.m.) and returned to Darwin quite late in the evening (around 8.00 p.m.). The only things we really saw was some amazing rock art and then the 360 degree view of Kakadu from the Nadab Lookout. To get to the top of the lookout you need to climb up a hill comprising of rocks so it does require good balance and a reasonable degree of fitness. If you can’t make it to the lookout you will be very disappointed. I’m glad I did the tour but not sure I’d recommend it.
Great experience
Elsa_M, July 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, the guide Ben was excellent and very knowledgeable. Overall a very enjoyable long day!

ANTONIO_C, July 2022
Long day but it was worth going to Kakadu.Only negative was the uncomfortable seats in the mini bus..
Leanne_B, July 2022
Loved visit to Fogg Dam Cultural centre at Kakadu so interesting The paintings at Ubirr were amazing telling of culture and stories to live by Our tour guide, Ben was very knowledgeable and informative. He engaged with all passengers and was on hand if any help was needed with a smile and encouraging word. Our day although long was incredible and makes us under stand just how vast and beautiful our country is
Spectacular and humbling !
Suellen_J, July 2022
Jay our tour guide looked after all of us well. Jay pointed out all the bird life and animals along each stop. Jay was culturally respectful to first nations people of which I am one. Jay explained the art work well and sorry business well. Thoroughly recommend this tour with Jay.
Highly recommended experience
Trent_C, July 2022
It was a great experience that we’d highly recommend and our tour guide Ben was outstanding! The croc jumping was excellent and Ubirr is amazing.
Amazing Kakadu
jenvic, July 2022
Our tour guide Jay was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun to travel with. Kakadu was amazing and the rock art at Ubirr was well worth the climb over the rocks.
A great way to view the beautiful Kakadu in 1 day
Amy_M, July 2022
Great trip with a very knowledgeable guide. Ubirr was the absolute highlight. Travelled with 2 kids 10 and 8 and they loved learning more about the Traditional Custodians and viewing the rock art. Thank you Bianca for giving the kids all the time they needed to ask questions!
Terrible bus trip
Dennis_M, June 2022
This trip needs to be shortened as the bus is old dirty and very uncomfortable. We were last onboard and no designated seats were available.
Awesome 🤠👏👏
Kerryn_S, June 2022
Adam our tour guide was amazing so informative on lots of topics and very generous with his time 🤠#voteforadamno1tourguide2022 👍 Tim and Kerryn
Not bad, but not great either
tatyana_z, June 2022
Kakadu was great but we got there only around 2 pm. What happened earlier was quite a waste of time. We didn't go on Jumping crocodile cruise (additional option), instead drove back and forwards for 5 min stop to see Fogg dam. Bowali Visitor Centre wasn't what was expected - we can see pictures and read info online without hassle to drive that far. Understand that its a long drive to see Kakadu, but it could be organise better, let sat Jumping crocodile cruise should be part of itinerary.
Very disappointed with this tour
Warren_F, May 2022
The tour was far too long with 3 hours driving in each direction to see rock art and very little else. The Litchfield tour was far better and I would recommend people do that tour rather than sit for a very long time in a small mini bus.
Great day trip
Richard_O, May 2022
Loved the trip. Our guide Bianca was awesome she showed us things we wouldn’t normally have seen and was super nice
Fantastic, loved every minute
Evelyn_T, Apr 2022
While it was a long day, the tour driver was Wynyard, ensured that everyone was comfortable and drinking plenty of water. While the itinerary of the trip may have have been ?? Something else for his day, he moved things around for the time of day and weather conditions, and thus we also saw a great many more fantastic sights. His knowledge and love of sharing about the area was amazing.
Crocodiles was my highlight
Helen_S, Apr 2022
Crocodiles in their own environment was great to see. Lots of interesting information but way too much talking esp while out in nature.
