Wonder how Nev(our tour guide) keep his energy and enthusiasm up from 5.40am throughout 12 hours tour. I am sure his superman! Also his knowledge is impressive and hospitable manner is Creme de la creme of this tour. Prior to join this tour I've done some research by checking review, few people mentioned "well organised" which made me to choose this tour for my bucket list trip. Tour operator informed you via text about hotel pick up time well in advance.This step made early morning pick up run very smooth unlike other tour(by different operator)I've done a couple of days ago which was total disaster and caused delay by driving around looking for people. Tour operator also ask you to inform your hotel that you are joining this tour which more ensuring this COVID time for contact tracing. Plenty of cool water offered. Lunch was delicious and served at perfect time. Snacks came around for morning tea time and afternoon tea time as well. Bring your own Sunblock and make sure to apply throughout day as Darwin heat can be very challenging. Insect repellent is must. Require to purchase pass for Kakadu Park $25 for adult if you haven't purchased online in advance. If you must have internet connection during this tour recommend to have Telstra Sim as my Vodafone had no recption during majority of tour. I have to say it was nice to be free from technology for awhile. You won't regret picking this tour.

Kel was the guide for the day... very helpful, informative, friendly and a smile. Great day was had by all. Totally recommend booking, and supporting, a family business such as Offroad Dreaming as small groups make this more manageable, was wonderful.

Ruby Travels Worldwide did a Group Tour of 21 of us on 3rd April, 2021. It was simply the best Tour and using Off-road Dreaming was the best choice. Neville did a splendid job overall. I am Director for Ruby Travels Worldwide and I highly recommend using Off-road Dreaming. Lunch was delicious well laid out and plentiful.

Do your research. We toured with Off-Road Dreaming on their Litchfield National park Day tour and were totally impressed so we booked the Kakadu with them also. The itinerary I read was for the Dry Season and unfortunately this had been prematurely changed to the Wet Season itinerary ( October to May). We went to Nourlangi Rock Art site instead of Ubirr and our cruise was on the Yellow Water Billabong instead of the Guluyambi Cultural Cruise. We had chosen this tour also based on the Dry Season tour itinerary. Missed out on 'stepping on to Arnhem Land' and a cultural experience here. Positives...Mike our tour guide and driver was pleasant, informative and helpful. The picnic lunch was fresh, healthy chicken and salad and more than enough for all. Snacks and cold water provided also for the day. Negatives... about 8 out of the 12 hours spent driving. Changed itinerary without notice, limited activities. Do your research to make sure the day tour you pick suits your needs.

Thankyou for touring with us and your review. Typically we start the Season on 1st March, with our Nourlangie and Yellow waters Itinerary, in Kakadu's Central Region, due to Wet Season rains making the East Alligator and Arnhem Land Region inaccessible. This runs until about the end of April, when we switch to our Ubirr and Guluyambi itinerary, which usually operates until early October. At some point in October we usually switch back to Nourlangie and Yellow Waters again. (When the rains start, exactly when this will be, is unpredictable and different every year.) We offer selected departures in November and then we close the public tours December, Jan and Feb every year, due to consistent heavy rains that create road closures and flooding. All of our itineraries may change at the last minute due to weather and cultural reasons. Sometimes we have less than 24 hours notice ourselves, so it is not possible to commit to any itinerary fully in advance. Road and location closures can happen at any time of the year, not necessarily following exactly a Wet/ Dry Season calendar and in response to cultural events. We are a small flexible team here at Offroad Dreaming and can work together with National Parks to find alternative, accessible areas. Where possible we will always provide a similar experience in a different region, whilst not the same, can offer you views and activities covering the same interests. You are welcome to call with any enquiries on 0889312021 or email bookings@offroaddreaming.com.au for the latest updates. Regards, Yvonne

Very good day trip to have a taste of Kakadu. Saw some nice highlights and will be back for longer experiences. Our guide (Rick) did a great job of sharing his knowledge and managing the group.
Delicious and satisfying lunch and great snacks. Bring a jacket for the bus as it gets cold. Only drawback is that it is a long day, but there is very little getting around that with the travel.
Highly recommended.

A wonderful day spent with Offroad Dreaming and our guide Nev. The passion for this part of the Australia, the knowledge of the land and people was palpable. We loved that the tour is limited to a small group. Nev very mindful of people’s capabilities, giving alternative walking trails & ensuring everyone was comfortable. Lunch was fresh and delicious, snacks offered throughout the day. My 16yo summed it up perfectly she was so glad we did the tour as we certainly wouldn’t have learnt so much about Kakadu by doing it by ourselves.

We started off with pickup from our hotel at 5.45. And headed on out to Kakadu. Couldn’t fault this tour at all. Plenty of snacks along the way and a yummy lunch all included. Plenty of places to stop for a toilet break for those worried about being in the middle of nowhere which you really are. Rock art was amazing our tour guide was full of information he knew his stuff. The walks are easy just made a little harder by the heat. Nice relaxing cruise along The Yellow River all made for a great day. Arrived back at the hotel after 7pm

We did this tour and was so glad we did.
We were picked up on time by Deb that was a lovely tour guide and driver. This was a long day but so worth it. Deb was so informative with a lot of knowledge of the area. Lunch was great ,lots of it. Seeing the Rock art and going to the top of Ubirr Rock and seeing the 360 degree view of Kakadu National park was amazing, could of sat and watched that view all day so peaceful.
After that was a cruise on the Adelaide River with a great guide Hilton. Showed us the Cahill Crossing and was very informative. This trip was well worth it. Great day.

This tour with Kel was a great day out .
Kell’s knowledge of the Darwin and kakadu was both impressive , knowledgeable and entertaining .
Along the way to kakadu we stopped a few times for breaks and little bits of information all the way while enjoying Kel’s bits of stories and humor along the way.
At kakadu we saw some spectacular sites with Kel fully respecting the local culture and giving some great history along the way.
The lunch was fantastic and dropping us off at the hotel and the end of the day was the icing on the cake.
Kel is True gentleman and looked after all of us … with people of all ages on the tour .
A great day …. Thanks Kel

I went on the 1 day tour to Kakadu. Our guide was Neville and he really made the tour so informative and interesting. I don't usually take tours but this tour was fantastic. The trip was well spaced out with stops, the lunch was great and there were snacks and stops along the way. Neville's knowledge of the aboriginal culture, rock art, and history of Kakadu was wonderful and really enhanced our visit. I would highly recommend this tour with OffRoad Dreaming.
