Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the 3-Day Top End Highlights Including Kakadu and Katherine submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
I was looking forward to this tour and it did not disappoint me. I was amazed how much we saw in 3 days. It was a nice mix of driving, hiking and sightseeing. I appreciated all the information our tour guide gave us. The top end of Australia is an amazing countryside quite different from what I imagined. I liked traveling as a small group, there were just 9 of us plus our guide, and the hotels too were nice. The evening dinner cruise was perfect. Rob, our guide was cheerful and extremely helpful. I had a thoroughly enjoyable trip.Reviewed by: Anne C, October 2013
This trip was probably the best we have ever taken. The driver / guide, Max, was wonderful. His knowledge of the area and sites was remarkable, such that I at first thought he was playing a recording, but no, it was just his obvious love of the region that came over in his commentaries. The Crocodile Hotel was excellent, especially the evening buffet, which we felt was good value for money. The All Seasons hotel /lodge was adequate but was obviously showing signs of tiredness. The sheets were clean but were not sparkling white and had little holes in them. The river cruise along The Katherine river, and the buffet supper, were amazing. Overall though it was a brilliant tour and really added to our once in a lifetime trip round Australia and has given us some wonderful memories to look back on now we are back in the cold, wet UK. Thank you.Reviewed by: Diane B, November 2010

The driver / guide was wonderful..This tour had the potential to be excellent..however two factors failed to meet our expectation.
The 'Luxury coach' ended up being a Mitsubishi 21 seater minibus .Our knees were jammed hard against the seat in front with no arm rest or reclining seat back. I suspect the tour may have been overbooked and the overflow placed in the minibus , as We appeared to be following a luxury APT/AAT Kings coach to most venues .
Hawke Dreaming wonderful Camp ...All Seasons -Katherine was cockroach ridden and were given our room key to find mess from previous guests as the room had not been touched. Obviously an oversight. Itinerary said breakfast included but we had to pay for it.
Certainly should not be called a 'first class' Hotel. Katherine Gorge sunset dinner cruise was excellent also all the other venues. Would do something similar again in the right transport.
