Ethical Adventure's Litchfield trip exemplifies all of the reasons we prefer small group tours: interaction with the guide and other guests plus a tailored, personalized service. Others have mentioned some of the unexpected add-ons that elevate the experience but above all it's being treated more like a guest than a statistic. It's a premium product but the line about the memory of quality outlasting the thrill of a cheap price is completely accurate.

This was the perfect tour for our family of 4 for our first visit to the Top End and to Litchfield National Park. Rob's tour was informative, not only about the flora, fauna of the Park, but also the ecological impact of human activity there. The waterfalls were impressive and the swimming areas delightful. We learned about the history of Australia and this region. Everything is taken care of from an early morning pickup, hot mango muffins and coffee, a gourmet lunch with grilled barramundi, and surprise drinks and snack along the way. We highly recommend this tour and look forward to our next visit to Darwin to explore more with this truly special company.

Thankyou Soyoung. Spending the day with your young and engaging family was a treat for me. Talking, exploring and learning from each other is why we established ethical adventures and have hope for the future. Litchfield National Park is the perfect place for such engagement and I do look forward to when we cross paths again. All the best for your travels.
We had a wonderful tour with Rob his knowledge of the Litchfield park is astounding the sites that he took us to were impressive his meals and snacks surprising.
Thanks for a great day in Litchfield National Park! A lovely small group led by our wonderful guide, Uschi. Uschi is a Darwin local and her knowledge is second to none. Because the group was small, we were able to adapt the itinerary where necessary. We didn't want to get stuck on a bus with a large group of 20 or more people, so this tour was perfect! Oh, and a delicious lunch of fresh barra! Thank you!
