    Great trip with excellent guides! We had the kids along and the staff went out of their way to make sure they were safe and had a great time! Well worth the time and cost.

    Excellent experience to enjoy canyoning in the clear water at Behana Gorge. We were lucky to have the super hilarious, handsome and energetic tour guides Marc and Dom with us to make the journey more fun. We enjoyed it very much and highly recommend people to join their tour to make your journey unforgettable:) Highly recommended!!

    This is a must-do activity if you are staying near Cairns! We didn't quite know what to expect from this tour, but it was better than we could have imagined! The guides are so fun and make everyone feel at ease and encourage them to face any fears you may have. Safety is the top concern, but adventure is a close second. We were tempted to rebook for a couple days later just so we could experience it all again. Book this tour!

    What an awesome way to see the Behana Gorge and experience tropical rainforests of FNQ! Sam and Dom were great guides, very encouraging and always made sure you felt safe and comfortable.
    They provide you with just about everything you need, including a wetsuit top. All you need is swimming gear for your bottom half and shoes that can get wet.
    The photographs they take during the day were great and very reasonably priced See attached examples.
    Thanks for the great day!

    This excursion was by far my favorite experience during my trip.
    Guides were well qualified, patient and encouraging.
    Activities were challenging yet doable.
    I felt very accomplished after our day in the gorge.

    It you want something completely different from the norm do this one. Sam was an excellent instructor and be prepared to come right out of your comfort your footing and wear grippy trainers, beautiful setting and lovely waterfalls.

    We were most disappointed with the organisation around our planned trip we booked and paid online for our family group of 9 persons well ahead of time, and only a few days before the trip received an email asking us to contact the tour company. We were informed that they could only cater for groups of 6 and that they would not be able to take our group which was a huge disappointment.

    It was a very exciting experience, it took the whole morning and part of the afternoon and we wanted more. It felt very safe and the guide seem very experienced. We went with our 12 year old girl and she enjoyed more than anything. it is the perfect activity to feel adventurous but safe
