Went by myself

Went by myself, made some great friends and saw some beautiful views. The waterfalls are easy to get to and are great for a quick cool off in the summer. It's a good day trip. Would recommend bringing insect repellent to Howard Springs as the mozzies are abundant.

Out of the four tours I did in the top end with AAT Kings I enjoyed this one the least

Out of the four tours I did in the top end with AAT Kings I enjoyed this one the least. Our driver was a little grumpy and on a long day on a bus it doesn't help make the trip enjoyable. The falls were nice and as someone with 'limited mobility' it was great that I had options that did not involve stairs, although with the time available at the first falls I did not have time to reach the swimming hole before I had to turn back to return to the bus. Lunch was set up well so that there was only a small wait time in the line.
