Fantastic tour. Tess and Greg were personable, knowledgeable and fun. We learnt a lot from both of them about Aboriginal culture and the land around us, saw beautiful scenery and lunch was the best meal we had in the top end. Just superb.

Had a great tour, friendly, a1 communication, highly recommend this company, We were told by friends to definitely do one or more of these tours. Best thing we did. Great for teenagers, it’s hard to keep them interested, but this tour did just that.
