What people are saying about Darwin

A great tour & commentary by Mark, the driver, who was amusing, engaging & informative. Thanks too, Mark, for not playing music or movies over the intercom system - often the bane of Aussie coach tours (not everyone appreciates Kylie at full-ball ..!)

Great tour. Well worth the journey. Learn about the Tiwi culture and traditions, meet the lovely people. Travel by bus around the island to see all the sights. Morning tea and lunch provided. Its a full day and a trip to remember.

Rob was an amazing guide who catered for the day perfectly. It was a lovely small group so we got to see and hear about everything in Litchfield.

Fabulous, once in a lifetime trip to the Tiwi Islands to learn about the culture and activities and history of the Island people

Absolutely brilliant day, bus driver icing on the cake.
