"Darryl took care of ‘Everything’ from the moment we stepped off the plane in Darwin, he was waiting with private airport to hotel transfers. Darryl put us in touch with the best helicopter and service providers in Darwin. We took a half day tour of the Kakadu by air stopping for lunch and a river cruise on one day and a private city tour the next before our flight home -“Darryl is very obliging and couldn’t do enough for you , A Great Person” – We would highly recommend him to Anyone!"
