From the moment we got on the bus we started learning about the local area and the local people. We really enjoyed searching for bush tucker and hearing about bush medicine. It was great to hear Patsy's explanations and stories and a privilege to help to get the tucker ready for cooking. A highlight was eating around the campfire as the sun went down and watching the birds on the flood plain. Sean kept us informed and involved. It was a magical tour - thank you!

Sean and our local guide, Patsy, took us on a real adventure. We learned how to find mussels and water chestnuts, make baskets from paper bark trees. We tried crushed ants (a bit like lime) and had a comprehensive tour of the area with many stories from our guides. The day finished with a feast of magpie goose, buffalo, root vegetables and damper, all prepared by Sean and Patsy, with help from the rest of us and cooked in a fire. Definitely recommended.

We did this tour in June with our two children aged 12 and 9. It was a highlight of our trip. Patsy is generous in sharing of her time, culture and stories. Don provides further insight and liason into the culture. There seems to be a genuine respect and dedication to education about Indigenous ways. When we finished the tour we met a local in the the carpark who was enquiring how we enjoyed our tour with Patsy the "Top Lady of Kakadu" and we would have to agree with that title. To be able to have an insight into the types of food, how it is gathered and cooked in this area by the traditional owners is a special experience. My kids also particularly loved learning to weave pandanus leaves into string, and spear throwing techniques. We all learnt a lot and are grateful for the experience.

Had a super tour for ten of us with the amazing Don Butcher and Patsy. The entire trip revolves around collecting things for an amazing dinner on the banks of the Kakadu wetlands of Magpie Geese and Buffalo - punctuated by fascinating stories, dreaming and anecdotes from Don and Patsy.

Fantastic evening around the billabong after collecting bush foods and the necessary resources during the afternoon. Patsy and Don were fantastic and the food was to die for. Damper cooked straight in the coals was impressive Don! Patsy was amazing with the kids and they learnt so much from her, particularly in the food prep and cooking area. Hot tip - bring bug repellant for after sunset.
