This was great! The first day is more "classic" for the average tourits, although it is well scheduled, the time is well occupied, the driver gave very interesting comments all the day long. We selected the crocodile hotel option and it was great, good food, relaxing small swimming pool. The second day in Arnhem was much more specific of the aborigenal culture, history, life, landscape. In a more remote part, we had a very instructive and documented talk by the driver about paintings, life, education, belief, burial, of aborigenal people of this particular place, as well as discussion on the issues of the revolution that european people arrival was for them and today's attempts to solve the problems.
The logistics was great, with fresh fruits under a tree the morning, and picnic on the shore of a billabong with beautiful sight and lot of birds. We also saw a croc on the way crossing the river.
For me the 2 days option is better than 1 day.

Extremely informative and interesting. Great accommodation and brilliant tour guides; particularly Peter Love on the Kakadu tour. Very professional and unique with his dissemination of information and local knowledge. Coupled with that was his personality and ability to relate to all his passengers regardless of age.
The four wheeled tour of Arnhem Land was also a truly unforgettable and spiritual experience and professionally conducted.
