A great trip. Its a shame it was not hosted by an aboriginal.

The Gorges are stunning and our guide Jason was very knowledgable & friendly. Next time we'll do it after the wet season when there's more water, just to get another perspective.

The tour was excellent. The scenery was stunning and the guide (a young Aboriginal chap) was terrific, being knowledgeable and fun and happy to chat during the swimming break off the boat. The tea snacks were good and the whole experience was a highlight of our NT trip. Only negative was that the loos on the boat were inadequate.

I highly recommend this tour. it was informative, but not over the top. The gorge speaks for itself but what made this trip even more pleasurable was our tour guide (forgetten his name). He is perfect for that sort of job. He was jolly and cracked jokes and made us all smile and have a laugh, you could tell he loved his job and very confident with a big group of people which isn't easy.

Enjoyed the tour. It was well-organised, on time, and the commentary was entertaining. They were also flexible and helpful when I had to change our bookings due to changes in travel plans, which was much appreciated.

A well organised tour with a knowledgeable (and funny!) guide. The sites are so beautiful along the gorge - have your camera's at the ready!

We did the sunset tour. Definitely a highlight of our NT holiday. Would highly recommend.

The gorge cruise was excellent. Particularly the Kathrine Gorge section. Which is on the second Gorge. Booking and tour guides were most informative. However in future I would only book the two Gorge cruise, which would be better value. As the third gorge only incorporates a 900 mt cruise and a swim in the rock pool, with a light lunch.

We really enjoyed our trip down the three gorges. The guide was wonderful.
The highlight of the morning was swimming in the rock pool at the top of gorge three.
I would do this tour again and recommend it to everyone going to Katherine.

My family and I had a great day, was spectacular in views very interesting and educational even for the children, we loved the fact that there were the short walks in between gorges, not too much even for a 3 yr old. The swim was enjoyable as well as the apples! The tour guide provided a well informed and safe environment, and was a pleasure to be in his company, a must to do.

We had the best time ever. The scenery was breathtaking and our guide was friendly helpful and a pleasure to listen to.
The swim in the gorge really made our day. It was refreshing and quite a few others joined in. I would recommend it highly and we will go again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. A glimpse of one of nature's wonders, such ancient country. The swim was great, the time we had to relax for a little while enabled us to drink in the atmosphere there. Was helpful having an indiginous guide too, he was great. Well done!

Absolutely wonderful experience, breathtaking scenery, easy walking, well worth time and money. It would be an idea for people booking on-line to be told if you want to swim put bathing costume on underneath clothes. Also snack to eat should be given out as you board because we missed out but were compensated with a drink and sandwich on return. The tour leader was knowledgable, friendly.

Great day we took the grandaughter who is 8 and she thoroughly enjoyed it.
Highlights were the crocodiles and the bats and the gorges, we had a great tour guide Jason from Beagle Bay. He was very informative and very friendly. Pity that it only does 3 gorges and not the 5 it use to. Also thanks to Dino for his help when booking thorugh ntstandby.

The content of the tour was great, and a great commentary by the guide. Loved every minute. However, the toilet facilities on the boats are attrocious! For a tour lasting 3 hours better toilet facilities are required. Toilets on both boats had run our of flushing water, and the bowls were full of paper. The lock on one toilet door was broken and fell open.

We had a lovely tour. The facilities are really great and our guide was very knowledgeable and respectful to the and and it owners. We saw so many different types of wildlife and enjoyed a refreshing swim in the gorge. I would recommend this tour to everyone

Wonderful. My whole family just loved the whole experience and of all the places we saw in the Northern Territory we enjoyed this one the most.

Chris our tour guide was fun and informative. He made our experience even more wonderful. I have imagined myself swimming in the gorges all my life so to be there and actually doing it, was surreal. We want to come back after the wet another time and would certainly book everything with you. The staff were all happy and very helpful which makes a holiday even better. Thank you for a great tour

Great cruise, scenery and commentary on the Gorge was very good. The awesome photo opportunities around every bend in the Gorge were endless, if we had more time the kayak choice would have been really special, a chance to pull into the small sandy coves for a pitstop. Only downside to the cruise was a very poor
'lunch" prepackaged cheese & biscuit and apple.

The tour is a must if you can. We took 3 boats to see 3 Gorges and at the end had a great swim in this remote waterfall. It was fantastic, and our guide also was great, hsi knowledge was impressive, considering he was from Spain. The scenery from the boats was breathtaking, amazing how nature creates so many beautiful things. We were taking photos non stop.

Easy to complete. Perhaps a little more explanation of possible tours offered

Couteous, informed and entertaining staff make this a memorable experience. The walk is easy and the vessels safe. The only negative is that whilst I understand people want to stand up and take photos, myself included, that's OK if they sit down again. There should be some sign that stops people standing permanently at the front of the boat, not even taking pics and by their inconsiderate action block the view of others. I felt very sorry for the people sitting at the front.

Loved it! Thought we were very lucky to have the guide play his didge at the end, it was special. He was excellent. The gorge has a very spiritual feeling.
