This was one of the most fun tours of the entire trip, in large part due to our guide Spencer. He is hilarious and had us do some crazy stuff (glad we did) that at the time seemed impossible and too scary to try. We did the 1/2 day afternoon Barron river tour. Picked up at the hotel and dropped off at around 645pm.

My wife and I went on a trip to Fitzroy Island yesterday while on honeymoon in Cairns. Ok, the weather wasn't great, meaning we could do the activities we'd planned while on the island, but, what is completed unacceptable is being left at the end terminal on our return with no shuttle back to our hotel, having paid for a return trip!!

We were told to be a bus pick up 6 by the driver dropping us off in the morning for our return, but the bus never showed meaning me had to make our own way back in wet clothes and a huge storm. Shame on you!! It felt like "we've had your money, now sod you!!"..

Whilst on the island we were told there would be no lifeguards on duty and most of the activities would be cancelled due to the cyclone type storm approaching! There was a beautiful hotel facility at the island with a lovely pool, so why didn't they arrange for us to use those facilities as all our activities were cancelled, but no! Stranded on an island, albeit it a beautiful one, for 8 hours with nothing to do!! Why not just cancel the trip because of the bad weather, refund us and be done with it?? No, it was take our money, then leave us at the terminal on our return!! Absolutely shameful, and at least Dick Turpin had a mask on when he robbed poeple!!

Amazing day out with them. So organised and on the ball with every detail. Malcolm is a legend - hopefully he will come and raft the River Findhorn in Scotland sometime.. Thanks to all for an amazing day.....

When I tried to book the Barron Rafting for 4 persons tomorrow online, I received a message that the booking was invalid and therefore locked. Then I phoned them and booked it over the phone as we missed the one in Sydney in Jan 2017. AUD500 was debited from my credit card at 1207 today but I have not still received a confirmation by email. Therefore, I phoned them again and repeated not only my email account but also the email account of my husband. I have still after four hours not received the confirmation by email.
