    Andy was my tour guide and he was fantastic. The waterfalls are gorgeous - only thing that would make it better is if the morning wasn’t so rushed - cut out one of the afternoon stops and put one stop after lunch to allow more time at Josephine Falls - 40 mins there was not enough!!! Definitely would recommend this tour!

    This is an absolute must! The water at Babinda Boulders is breathtaking, the same for the waterfalls and the lake. Give it a go, there’s nothing to regret!! Lots of time in the water and lunch at the pub I had Jim as our tour guy and let me just say he has the best jokes and the best comedic timing. Besides on the way back he’ll teach you a few moves so you can group dance to a song about kangaroos, pegging clothes and rocking chair !! He has a playlist for every leg of the tour. I absolutely loved this. It was adventure filled and Jim with his humour made this times more fun!! Absolutely loved it and recommend it to anyone wanting to combine nature and adventure! Thanks to the team, you were wonderful.

    The day was action packed with lots to see and do. The waterfalls were amazing and getting to swim in them was great. It rain for bits of the day but that did not make the experience any worse, if anything it added to the day! Our guide Tom was an absolute rockstar, brilliant guide and great fun to be around who offered great local knowledge, his choice in music for the journey was pretty decent too ha! Overall amazing!! A great day and would recommend definitely!
