What people are saying about Northern Territory

Had an amazing experience. From the guy who picked us up from our hotel who recommended some great restaurants to the helicopter pilot and helicopter ride was amazing. The jumping crocs were another highlight. The guides were very knowledgeable and the crocs were a must see from the size and age to the rare white croc. I would highly recommend. Our trip to the top end was fantastic but this tour was the highlight. We did have the boat to ourselves so it did feel like an epic rock star tour
