“Tully a must do experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Did Tully and the day was great, picked up from our accommodation in cairns in a luxurious airconditioned coach, we arrived at Tully gorge and broken up into groups of six, friends and family groups kept together. The guides were all very friendly and informative, lunch was a BBQ by the river it was a fantastic setup. there was plenty of food with people able to go back for seconds. We had Alan he let our teenagers ride the raft up front like cowboys, we all had plenty of swims and fun. This is a must do experience. We were dropped off back at our accommodation. Our teenagers, my wife & I had a FANTASTIC time.

“Simply the BEST adventure activity in Cairns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Camping, fishing, swimming, scuba diving, hiking, if you can think of it, I have done it here in Cairns. By far the most exciting, memorable, and awesomely fun activity is a day trip rafting the Tully river. So much so that I have done it more than once ! The tour is organised immaculately well, the guides are fun, knowledgeable, and entertaining, and the experience is unforgettable. The thrill of the water, fury of the rapids, and sense of accomplishment at the conclusion really leave you wanting more. By far the best adventure activity in Queensland. don'e even consider the standard tour, EXTREME is the only option. Book it now !

“Barron River Cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Couldn't recommend this higher to those who have never rafted before but have a keen sense of adventure. If you're unsure whether rafting is for you this is definitely a great introduction to rafting- it wets your taste buds and leaves you wanting more! We started off paddling in the rain but as the rain cleared up it just became more and more gorgeous! The guides were super helpful and super funny. If you've rafted before you'll probably find this a tad boring as it is only an introduction/novice tour so you might want to try Tully! Overall a great experience

“SOOOOO Awesome!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

everything about this day is great! i have actually gone back to do it a few times in the last few years and it never fails! the staff are awesome, the equipment is modern, it is really safe and yet really extreme. Def one of the best rivers in the world for rafting! Make sure to pack dry clothes and a towel as it is a 2 hour bus ride from Cairns to the river. Great full day out!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

I reckon it is a must-do activity in cairns. It's so much fun, the view on the river is excellent, much better than the other rainforest tour. We stayed about 5 hrs rafting, and we even did it in the rain. The staff are great, our captain John is terrific.It is the best tour in cairns .
