Traveler Reviews

Reviewed by: Debra P, September 2016

Our trip was disrupted by early rains however AATKings were fabulous and quick to reorganise and give us a wonderful time, thank you very much. A quick and professional approach to changes necessary with the itinerary

Reviewed by: Ki S, July 2016

Highly recommended! AAT Kings drivers were amazing. Full of knowledge and knew how to keep the trips interesting with fun facts and lighthearted humor. 3rd party contractors - indigenous and non-indigenous - were also very knowledgable and kept the long days interesting and entertaining. I would recommend choosing the Crocodile hotel, if budget allows, as the Aurora Kakadu left a lot to be desired.

Overall - I'd highly recommend this package deal!
