Yes, I recommend this program

A must do in the Top End

This was the most amazing thing I did in the Top End last year and I did a lot of things let me tell you. First we were picked up promptly from our hotel. The trip out to the Corroboree Billabong was fascinating and we learnt so much from about the area from the Chrissy. The cruise was fabulous, lunch healthy and fresh, saw lots of those huge 'Salties' Aussies talk about & boy, are they huge. It's so good to see them in nature rather than jumping for food. Lots of different varieties of birds to see too. All in all, had the best day. Was so peaceful, relaxed and fun. A day in absolute nature is so good for the soul & I highly recommend it. Thanks Chrissy. Your knowledge is phenomenal and your enthusiasm contagious. I will be highly recommending this cruise

What would you improve about this program?
Nothing. It was perfect. Oh.....there is one thing. Run cruises all year :-) But that would be impossible I know due to the wet season
