Testimonials

"I traveled on a 3 day Kakadu & Litchfield tour in September 2015. The tour was great...the guide was extremely knowledgable and we were able to see some amazing sites including Jim Jim Falls! The camping facilities were comfortable, and everyone on the tour had a good time. The agents at Travel Freedom were able to help me with my questions, payment was easy, and confirmed shortly after. I would recommend them to anyone looking to book tours in Australia."

Demi Thompson (UK)

"I booked the 1 Day Litchfield & Jumping Crocs tour with Travel Freedom and it was a crazy amazing day! The crocs jump right out in front of you, and then waterfalls in Litchfield were great to swim in on a hot day! Thanks to Travel Freedom for the easy booking service and cheap price. I recommend them to anyone wanting to book tours and accommodation in Darwin!"

Trude Maman (DK)

"Thanks for your organising our trip to Katherine Gorge, it was a fantastic experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it, and the tour operator was very professional, as was everyone that was involved in the various locations that we went to.

We will contact Freedom Travel when we are looking for our next adventure.

Cheers

Pete"

Peter Martin (AUS)

"We loved our two days in Kakadu. Loved opportunities to enjoy waterholes, spectacular views, landforms, rocks, trees, birds, unfortunately, no crocodiles! Tom our guide was generous with his time, effort and knowledge. Thanks to him we had an enjoyable time and learned much about Aboriginal art and history and about the environment
of Kakadu. We loved sleeping under the stars! "
