What people are saying about Darwin

Very interesting and informative tour. I really enjoyed it and I learned a lot of things about the bombings that I had no idea about. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Goes/stops at most important locations in Darwin. We got off at Cullen Bay, had breakfast and a bit of a walk around, the rejoined the bus. Bus was on time.

Great way to see the sights of Darwin, you get a feel for where you want to revisit and you become familiar with the place . Recommended.

The drivers were very friendly and helpful. I loved being up high, much easier to see the sights and take photos.

Very interesting and we could understand our guide.
