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.
This was a fantastic tour a long day but so worth it for the comfort and way it was managed. The bus driver and assistant made it so enjoyable communication and presentation really well done. I would thoroughly recommend this tour for people who want to experience this part of the Northern Territory. Loved the morning tea/dinner stops, Edith Falls stop lunch (really nice) and the cruise down the Katherine Gorge with it's passionate informative guide so well done! You do have to be prepared for an extra long day because there are many kilometers covered.
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 tour itself was very good and we had an excellent tour guide. However, the pre-trip administration was appalling. We could not get through to the local operator (AAT KING) so we did not know until we were actually on the trip whether lunch was provided. There was also no pick-up information and the promised drop down list of locations did not exist. Your customer service desk could not help us either. Very poor indeed.
Our driver and tour guide was really knowledgeable and created a great friendly vibe on the bus. The stop at Edith Falls was really quick and we were back on the road again. It is a long hot day. Katherine gorge was very special but really hot. The bus is pretty tight but air working which was important. A bit off a once in a lifetime memory visiting the gorge. Loved the stories and history.
