Darwin: Pub Crawl by Helicopter
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration: 5.5 hours
Nothing on website about Seniors' Discount! I found I spent a lot of effort keeping track of the time when anticipating the next bus/activity. I missed the last bus - perhaps it went a little early? - so had to walk around to where the lift is and back to terminal. (It was not a problem!) And I'm not sure what could be done about this ... some places too complex to have driver come in and give a whistle! I had a drink when I went to the Mil. Museum, so looked at outdoor exhibits first. When I went back to the desk there was no one to collect tickets. Later the bus driver had to run back in with several people's tickets, otherwise confusion over whether the bus company owed the M. Museum money or v. versa. Having only one way to buy tickets might be easier for all in every way! Perhaps it could be mentioned by the drivers that Parap is only open in the mornings. I was planning that for the afternoon, not wanting to carry shopping around with me, but ... too late!
Was not impressed coming into Darwin from Virginia early in the morning to discover that the tour was not running that day, despite me booking online prior to that day and not being notified, then had to return 2 days later. No apology. I gather that most of the clients would be tourists and do not carry a printer around with them when on holiday. It is most inconvenient to have to Find somewhere to print out your tickets rather than show an email when boarding.
I knew about the bombing of Darwin, but the information given and "believed" was more than I was aware of. Thank you for the really good time put with you all my wife and I had. Easily recommend it to others.
Staff on both the ferry and on the island were all really nice and helpful. The seafood buffet was awesome!! I am so glad l did this trip and l really enjoyed it. Thank you guys
Comprehensive tour, good view, plenty of opportunities to get off and explore, excellent audio commentary.
