Had a fantastic day of rock climbing with Simon. Also got to do a bit of abseiling when it started raining and when our arms and legs wouldn't carry us anymore. Simon was very thorough and made us feel safe. He is clearly passionate about...More

My brother and I spent a day with our tour guide Dan. We had a brilliant day exploring the wilderness and appreciating the amazing natural surroundings. Our guide was really knowledgeable & we couldnt have had a better time! Highly recommended.

It's absolutely respectable to be intimidated by Empress Falls - 30 metres abseiling down a waterfall is not a small achievement! Juri (with a "J", pronounced as a "Y") is a great young guide and Simon, whilst a bit older, is new to the team...More
