Was an epic adventure... The guides were awesome, the group was great... we were even able to get dunked if we wanted, even jump off a large rock into the water if we wanted to seek a bit more adrenaline.

It is an awesome experience. The early start quickly forgotten the moment you see the first rapid. Our guide was the hands down funniest guy around and didn't spill the raft once. He was a 10 out of 10. Ask for Shawn!

Friendly staff who were always willing to answer questions and made everyone feel relaxed. Gluten free options for lunch was provided.

Fun rafting, did not disappoint. I have doing rafting in Austria and the Tully River was definitely better than that.

Would definitely recommend to a friend and would definitely do it again. Great photos from the day as well.

Everything about this experience was first rate. Anyone visiting Cairns must go rafting on the Tully.

Life-time experience. Need to be in shape. Unbelievable rush from start to finish. Every time you look back from last rapid, you can not believe you survived. "Fish" was the best guide. Only negative is you rid all clothing at the end outdoors changing in to fresh clothes. Bring long cover ups and big towels. Not mentioned in brochure. Would do again. Check it out on U Tube. Unreal 2 hours in am and again in pm.

We had an excellent day white water rafting, from the minute we got picked up to drop off we enjoyed every second of it. Although I had never been white water rafting before and was apprehensive, all staff were very supportive, friendly and capable. It was a great way to meet people and work as a team. Our guide was experienced and made the whole journey fun and exciting. The BBQ lunch was a welcome addition. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for adventure and physical exertion and a good sense of fun!

Well organised, excellent rapids and entusiastic staff.
The whole day was absolutely superb. Could quite easily have done it again and again.
Our instructor was funny, entertaining, extremely knowledgable about the area and kept everyone in the raft involved all day.
Lunch was prepared part way down the river and was very good.
The photos that they take on the way round are well worth buying as they capture the day brilliantly!!
Well worth the money. Would do it again if I ever went back!!!!

So much fun! Could have done it all over again. Don't hesitate. Just book it and you won't regret it. We're glad we chose this tour instead of the Barrons fall rafting since that would have been too short.

I booked this tour for my hubby and two teenagers. They had an absolute ball with many laughs on the way. The photos were awesome that you could purchase from the tour guides but you may want to check the pricing as they are pricey - but worth it!! The rafting staff were a lot of laughs and had everyone in stitches and their detail to safety is second to none. My hubby and the kids will most definitely return to this tour as they couldn't stop "raving" about it and although it is a long day - well worth it! Tip for others - the March flies are pretty thick when you pull up for lunch but they are great to swat and feed to the fish. Maybe wear an undershirt as my hubby got some nasty chaffing from his vest but otherwise - be prepared for plenty of thrills and lots of laughs!!

The company picked me up from my hostel on time and we stopped for breakfast on the way. The rafting guides were extremely friendly and entertaining. The people I met on the trip were also. We got to jump off rocks, swim down rapids, get our raft flipped on purpose, etc. The rapids were not as strong because of the water level, but it was still a great time. Great lunch by the river. Rent a wetsuit if you go during the winter, the water does get cold!
