The AAT Kings tour was very good though taxing and extended in duration to about 15 hours due to an injury to one of the group. Also, my wife and I were unhappy that we had to pay full ticket costs for entry to the National Park because GYG had not shown us as Seniors in the list of passengers supplied to the tour company, AAT Kings.This cost us an extra $20. Perhaps GYG will refund the difference? If you book direct with AATKings the ticket price is included saving inconvenience and possible embarrassment compared with being singled out to pay before the bus departs. You should seriously consider the overnight option.
This was a fantastic tour a long day but so worth it for the comfort and way it was managed. The bus driver and assistant made it so enjoyable communication and presentation really well done. I would thoroughly recommend this tour for people who want to experience this part of the Northern Territory. Loved the morning tea/dinner stops, Edith Falls stop lunch (really nice) and the cruise down the Katherine Gorge with it's passionate informative guide so well done! You do have to be prepared for an extra long day because there are many kilometers covered.
The staff were absolutely great all the way through and our driver Kev and assistant Narelle went to great lengths to make our trip enjoyable.
It was a long day but well worth the trip. Seeing Kakadu in the wet season was amazing and to experience the wild life.
It was warm enough to swim at Edith Falls but we didn't bother as there was to much to see and photograph.
