Garry was an excellent tour guide. Reminded me of Steve Irwin a bit. He has excellent knowledge on the area and particularly on this Australian on ground war. So many stories personalised with peoples names, their experiences etc. I am NOT a war fan but went along with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed the 4 or 5 hours. You choose between the artilery or aviation museum, we chose aviation. The B52 bomber was amazing to see. All in all highly recommend this tour. His bus was comfortable, small groups only which suited us. A few little stops here and there pointing out some places of interest, including some original buildings that have survived both the bombing and cyclone Tracy.

If you are a history buff, this tour is a must! The proprietor has deep knowledge of Darwin and Australia's history. We learned more from him in a half-day than we could in any museum or book. Gary is also a cheery chap and nice to be with. We rarely opt for tours, but this one is worth it.
