Enjoyable cruise of the river.Callum the guide/ captain did a wonderful,informative commentary in a very friendly manner. We loved the views of the surrounding countryside,and the bird life,especially the eagles. The tour of cataract gorge was spectacular, just shorter than we expected.(river gets too narrow in the gorge I think?). Unfortunately being a smaller boat the views were fairly limited for photography,except on the upper deck which was only accessible by quite steep steps. Generally though,with the guide we had, I feel this is definitely a trip worth doing!

Informative and enjoyable. Hhowever.
Advertising is out of date. $25 per adult is actually $29 AND they dont take cash. Catd only for anything purchased and this is not advertised anywhere either.

We boarded a well appointed craft and were welcomed by tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits. The crew were friendly and accommodating, looking after our every need. The Captain narrated the whole trip with great enthusiasm, knowledge and stories that made the longer 2.5 hr trip very enjoyable.
Towards the end of the trip, we sampled local wines and beers and then we entered the famous Cataract Gorge, a truly spectacular sight. Good value, entertaining way to experience the river, see the city from a different perspective and enjoy some great views and wild life.
