    The tour went really well. We got picked up from our hotel and dropped off. Nancy the tour guide was very informative and experienced so we could trust her. The waterfalls were magnificent and it was an amazing experience being able to swim at the waterfalls and Lake Eacham. The rock water slide was very fun! It was very wet due to the wet seasons and got quite cold in between the dips in water since the sun wasn’t out. Overall, I would definitely recommend going on this tour.

    Had a small group the driver Stu was a fun guy. He was very good at jokes!! It was a diverse group and he catered for all of us. I am not a swimmer so he would find good walking tracks for me to enjoy my day. All round it was great. Hotel pick up was the best.

    Stu was great! He knows a lot of things plus he know how to give us a good time. The customer service was great! The adventure was unforgettable! Hotel pick is a must. I will use the app in the future. I will forget Viator they don’t know how to take care of me.
