"We recently travelled to Darwin and were lucky enough to find Darryl. We are 3 ladies, aged 95, 65 and 64 so we needed someone special and we found Darryl to be all that we needed. Our tours were wonderful and he was full of knowledge both with history, information re restaurants, shopping, he knew it all. He was helpful, kind and very caring. It made our stay so easy. "
