We really enjoyed our relaxed cruise down the river. It was a great way to see more of the city and from a different perspective, and after a hectic week it was great to relax and enjoy a glass of wine with a beautiful sunset! the service was also really great!

The best part of the trip was definitely the Gorge Walk, the view was nothing short of mesmerising and I took tons of wallpaper quality photos in the area.

I'm glad that I have done the lunch and night cruise with the same provider, well taken care-off while the view was absolutely amazing. Thanks Team

Very good trip! We saw kanguroos and turtles. And Rio was the best guideman of the world!

It wasn’t the best weather day but the trip was made to be absolute fun.
