    Hi Leanne

    Well we have been back just over a week and it seems so long ago.

    Flight to Darwin went well and no hassles with our cross border forms.

    We had 4 days in Darwin and really enjoyed our time but very hot and humid. The group trip was really good and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There were 15 on the tour and there were even some our age !!!! Other than the truck breaking down in Lichfield (there had to send another one from Darwin but we only lost 3 hours) everything went very smoothly. We had 2 guides (one was getting familiarised with the trip) and there were both very informative.

    We were so glad that we decided to do the trip. Just thought you might appreciate our feedback and would recommend this trip. We even did the hour’s flight from Kakadu which was great and had a beautiful sunset.

    Thanks again for all your help and support.

    Kind regards
    Sue + Ian
