We are a couple and took a 4 day private tour to Kakadu and we loved every minute! From the first enquiries we received all the information we were looking for and more. Alina answered every question we had and gave us great advice to prepare for the trip. GT took us on tour and his knowledge of the landscape and indigenous culture made the visit very interesting. We did learn a lot and had fun too. He took time to answer every question we had, while he takes care of you during the trekking. We did the visit during October, which is challenging due to the heat, but we were safe and relaxed since GT knew very well how to take us to each spot at the right pace, ensuring appropriate water and breaks to allow us to enjoy every attraction and view point we visited in the park. I’m not native in english and sometimes it is a challenge with the Aussie accent, especially in remote locations like this, but not with GT. We absolutely loved it and will book again to do the Kimberley tour. Thanks GT and Alina!

Our family of 5 had a wonderful experience exploring Kakadu National Park. Greig was a very professional, considerate and knowledgeable guide, very easy to talk to and drove our precious family around very safely. He knew so much about the wildlife, indigenous culture and country with all of us learning volumes. The car was comfortable and his cooking very tasty - the boys (all under 12) loved their pasta dish particularly! We would highly recommend a tour with Charter North 4WD Safaris.

This was an unforgettable experience! First of all, planning of the trip with Charter North was the first sign of the professionalism of this company - all our wishes were considered, questions answered, challenges explained - the list goes on and on. Our tour guide (referred to as GT, still not sure why not call him Greig :) ) was very professional with unbelievable knowledge of absolutely everything related to the tour - and this was not limited to places we visited: he was able to answer absolutely every question (whether it was about the cultural heritage, wildlife, past/present/future of places like Kakadu park etc.). GT was taking care of us during the whole trip - whether it related to always timely lunch, trail choice or even things like avoiding dehydration - everything was catered for. And several times we thanked our choice of this company due to hidden treasures of Kakadu Park, let alone the challenging roads not every driver can cope with. Most importantly - when you deal with people like the ones we met from Charter North - you want to see human beings, not just local area encyclopedia (which they were, incidentally) and this was probably the most pleasant experience: great and informative stories, lots of laughter, truly friendly atmosphere: all of this made us all (a group of four people) think that the money was very well spent. Well done, Charter North, hope we will still go through a yet unread chapter (no pun intended) of the NT book with you!

A huge thanks to GT and Alina. We had a wonderful time travelling Broome - Kununurra up the Gibb River Rd - including side trips to Derby, Wyndham and the incredible Bungle Bungles. Loved the bush camping, the gorges, seeing the stars, sunrises /sunsets and the special hidden places that GT shared with us - many times we had pristine bush/waterways just to ourselves - what a treat. The driving was first rate and GT's knowledge detailed - not surprising given his many years guiding in these parts. Highly recommend Charter North and the adventure that is "The Kimberleys".

Amazing experience! We are planning on booking again to do the Kimberley tour. We are a family of 4 with 2 primary school age children, we did the private tour 6day top end experience. The tour covered Kakadu, Edith Falls, Katherine Gorge and Litchfield; and our whole family throughly enjoyed the entire experience. Our fabulous guide, GT, looked after us very well - he has an amazing knowledge of wildlife, culture as well as camping. And his cooking is delicious! We originally booked this tour to take advantage of a local guide’s knowledge, as well as have all the required equipment provided - however quickly realised and greatly appreciated how relaxing it can be when you have someone take care of all the camp set up, cooking and pack up (and we loved the percolater coffee in the morning)!! Even though this was an active camping holiday, we finished feeling relaxed as GT really looked after us. GT was also really lovely with our children, he was patient and kind and was always happy taking the time to answer their questions and teach them how to manage in the bush. We highly recommend this company.

Response from Charter_North, Owner at Charter North 4WD Safaris
Responded 28 Jul 2021
Hi Emma, Thanks so much for taking the time to write this comprehensive review! We are glad that you enjoyed and appreciated all of the aspect of your Top End experience! You are right, a lot goes into a camping trip like this, from the planning and preparations, provisions, catering and safe maintenance and operation of off road vehicles and trailers, as well as all the fun stuff - hikes, safe swimming spots and learning about the local environments. Travellers often don't consider all of these aspects, and an extended camping trip can quickly become exhausting, particularly with young children. We enjoy taking the stress out of it all so that our guests can relax and take full advantage of their holiday, it's what we do best ;) GT had a great time with you all and it would be fantastic to show you around the Kimberley sometime! Cheers, GT & Alina.
