very interesting and enjoyable
A very interesting and enjoyable tour. Although out of season for crocs we did see one and the rest of the wildlife and rainforest habitat made it more than worthwhile.

enjoyed the experience
We really enjoyed the experience. A pity most of the birds have travelled inland to take advantage of the big wet. A very relaxing time spent on the water.
