Dear David, thank you for sharing your review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed your tour although I apologise for your experience with lunch, consumption can vary depending on the appetites of those on board but we do usually carry extra food items to allow for this. I'm sorry that that was not the case on this occasion and I have shared your feedback with our team so as to avoid a repeat situation in future. Thank you again for sharing and I hope you have enjoyed the remainder of your time in the Top End.
