Don’t miss this tour.

Paul shared the whole story of Darwin, as well as the attacks on Darwin beginning in 1942. The visit to the museum was also very informative and the harbour cruise puts the whole experience in perspective. This is definitely a “Don’t miss it” tour!

Rob was so passionate and knew his stuff!I As an Australian was not aware of full story about bombings, the number and time. Should be taught in schools.

Very well thought out trip. Great information and the tour operators are absolutely brilliant. If I would change one thing.... more time at the museum. Way to much to see in 45 min.

Well what surprise this tour was. If you only have time to do one tour in Darwin, make it this one. We enjoyed this tour so much. Our tour guide Paul was so informative. We had no idea the extend of what happened during the Darwin Bombing. It was also backed up by the water tour which showed a different perspective of the bombing. The tour guides on the boat were very informative also. The whole tour went together seamlessly. We can highly recommend this tour.
