Great team and experience

Tom and Seb were super easy going larrikins, that made our experience really enjoyable. we listened to some great stories about the region along the way and although the experience was only 2 hrs, the nature and the activity was just very entertaining. But you do need to be able to be confident in the water as the last rapid was quite tumbling

Worth the experience not worth the money

Was a great time totally loved it and would do it again. However, we spent 2 hours doing pick up and 2 hours drop off so a half day experience was really a2 hour ride on the water.

We're delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your Tubing tour although we're sorry that the time spent doing pick ups & drop offs impacted your enjoyment, unfortunately on days when our guests are spread out it can cause extended time on the bus.

Did not attend.
Sam_C
, Apr 2022
The terms stipulate that this experience requires good weather. Yet ironically, the event still went ahead despite very poor weather conditions. We weren’t able to attend as the rain tends to trigger my asthma so the ticket fees were forfeited.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Thanks for your feedback, we're sorry to hear you weren't able to join the tour. The 'good weather' we require to operate our Tubing tour relates to safe river levels not rain, if it's raining and the river is at a safe level the tour still operates. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in the region.

A first step experience
Jack_M
, Apr 2022
A great intro or first step towards white water activities. Perfect for families with kids 10 and up. Lively, entertaining guides and a beautiful location. Unfortunately however there were 75 people on our trip, this group size felt too large and created a fair amount of waiting - 50 would have been more manageable for the guides and resulted in more time on the water for everyone.

Thanks for letting us know how much you enjoyed your Tubing tour and were well looked after by our guides. We do apologise there was some extra waiting time on the day you travelled but thank you for traveling with us and for your feedback :-)
