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.
The tour was a good introduction to the Kakadu and NT history. The cruise along Yellow Waters billabong was beautiful with lots of bird spotting along the shorelines. The lunch was a little underwhelming; consisting of cold cuts and salads, I also missed out on the scenic flight optional even though I was one of the first people to place my name in cue. Would of preferred more time to explore Nourlangie independently as this part felt a little rushed.
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.
The boat cruise was awesome Reuben the guide fantastic Bus operator was not that great
