The Gorge is spectacular, the cruise staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful. A great experience. Probably even better a bit earlier or later in the year (listen to all recommendations for safety and for looking after yourself on the heat)

A very well organised tour. It was a long day but worth every minute. The gorge is stunning and the photo opportunities are endless. Edith falls is a little oasis and just breaks the trip nicely. Our driver and coach was first class. Great day
