Wonderful Insight into Darwin’s fascinating past!

Most informative commentary, delivered at a manageable walking pace. Questions were answered in depth. Interesting to see inside the impressive Parliament building. The library history loop was also a highlight!

We're also pleased that you found the tour pace manageable and that your guide was informative and able to answer your questions. We'll be passing this feedback to the guide, so he is aware that his hard work and research has provided a well-rounded tour.

John, the tour guide was very friendly and informative. The tour included some of the local history and landmarks as well as historic war history. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in knowing more about Darwin's past. It's an easy walk and John ensured all stops were under shade. It was a nice touch at ths end when John gave me a couple of ANZAC biscuits. Great experience, thank you.
