Dan the tour guide was great, friendly and full of information. Went to a variety of places but very military / ww2 orientated. My wife really enjoyed it but I found it hard going. Great if this is your main interest.

We booked this 5hr tour as it covered a number of attractions that we were interested in. We only had a few days in Darwin and this covered off a few things in the city.
We had a great day. This tour is definitely a great way to see a lot of and learn about Darwin.
Our tour guide, Dan "The Man" was fantastic.
We were punctually picked up from our accomodation and taken around the advertised sites.
Dan shared his great knowledge of Darwin, information about the bombing, cyclone Tracey, the Indigenous People and also told us a lot about bush tucker food, often stopping to show and offer to smell and taste. The tour was supposed to be only 5 hrs but ended up being about 6-7 hrs. Dan did warn us it would take a longer to get around.
Be warned, if you're not used to the heat of Darwin, make sure you bring along a bottle to fill up with cool water (provided). Our trip was in the open air tub-bus (no air-con). Its fine while driving along though, but not all of the attractions are cooled.

Right from the time of booking, we found Tour Tub helpful as we had to drop off our Campervan first thing. They picked us up from the depot and then helped us drop our bags at the hotel. We only had a short time in Darwin so wanted to make the most of it. We chose Tour Tub as it has all of the attractions we were after. It was Amazing! Every attraction was fantastic, our tour guide Dan was knowledgeable and shared a vast amount of knowledge of the history of Darwin, as well as Bushtucker and the flora and fauna Darwin. Would highly recommend this to anyone!

Such an amazing day. Thankyou so much to our driver Dan. So knowledgeable not only about Darwin and its history, but about the flaura and fauna around us. We were out for six hours and not a minute of it wasn't informative. Dan was awesome and patient with my young children and helped make the day remain interesting for them the whole time. Such a great way to all that Darwin has to offer.
