“Kakadu Dreams 2 day tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

I booked this on the net not knowing what to expect but Tom the guide made an immediate impact with his get up and go attitude , knowledge and empathy with the region and people . You travel a long way , 4-5 hours per day in the back of the v8 9 seater Toyota , but if you want to get to places quickly and enjoy the sights for a longer time, this is the way to do it . Particularly if you only have two days . If you have longer i would still recomend this tour organiser as the way to do this , as by having the toyota you can go straight through the 4wd dirt roads and into twin falls / jim jim falls . By getting up at 5am you are the first ones to the park , we had over 45 minutes to ourselves at both destinations , this allowed us a far better experience . The tour may not suit all people but if you like camping under the stars , great food , a couple of beers by the fire and can put up with a bit of bouncing around in the back of a landcruiser with the noise and dust then this is for you . I travelled August 3rd 4th 2013 and cannot recommend Tom and Kakadu Dreams highly enough .

“Wonderful 2-day Kakadu tour - thanks Tom!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

We had a fantastic time on the Kakadu Dreams 2 day tour, largely thanks to our knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide, Tom. Twin Falls and Jim Jim Falls were a highlight, as was the glorious sunset at Yellow Water and the Spectacular Jumping Crocodile cruise where we got up close and personal with some incredibly large saltwater crocs. Being in a small tour group was excellent. Tom took good care of us all, and even managed to help us all get a decent sound out of the didgeridoo! Tom cooked us a fantastic dinner before we got to sleep under the stars...couldn't have asked for a better experience, and we highly recommend this tour.

“A fantastic way to see Kakadu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

I travelled with Kakadu Dreams on a 2 day tour of Kakadu National Park in July 2013. It was an amazing way to get the most out of a short period of time in a massive place. Tom (our guide) was very knowledgable and passionate about the Top End. His local knowledge meant we were always the first group to visit places and had these magical waterholes, sunsets and sacred Aboriginal sights to ourselves. The small size of our tour (10 ppl max) also meant we saw places the others couldn't. Would highly recommend to others!! If you have time do the 3 day tour. Kakadu deserves as much time as you can.

“3 Day Kakadu Tour - AMAZING!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I went on the 3 Day/2 Night Kakadu Tour in July and I can easily say it was the highlight of my trip to the Northern Territory. The fact that you get to travel in small groups of 8-10 was a massive plus for me, as we got to do and see things in the National Park that those travelling in large tour buses miss out on. Swimming through hidden waterholes at the peak of Barramundi Gorge, watching all of the big tour buses pull up down the bottom of the Gorge made you feel like a VIP. Our tour guide Dan was so fun, and so knowledgeable. He knew every little waterhole and every cave. Jim Jim falls was probably my favourite part - seriously magical. The food was all excellent, the tents were secure, and all the toilets/showers were clean/hot. I can't really fault anything!

“Epic 2 day kakadu tour!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

This truly was an amazing tour!!! I did the 2 day tour during which we did and saw soo much!! Including seeing the jumping crocs, swimming in numerous clear lagoons, 2 of which where on top of and below Jim Jim Falls!! (We hiked to the top of Jim Jim at sunrise, tiring but completley worth it!!!) Our tour guide (Tom) was great too, full of so much energy and knowledge + cooked us a delicous meal in the evening around the campfire of kangaroo steak and buffalo sausages before we slept underneath a sky full of stars! I couldn't recommend this trip enough, the whole thing was well planned and executed in a truly breath taking part of Oz!!!
