Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Although I hate such great heights (and would not cross) my travelling companion loved it here. It's certainly impressive. I wish there had been somewhere to buy a cup of tea on the "terra firma" side of the gorge, there was a shack but no-one was serving, but it was fun to sit in the sun and watch everyone else wobble across the gorge

    The falls are quite impressive, as are the surrounding mountains. It's worth taking the short walk to the bottom of the falls to get a better view. You only need 10-15 minutes here.

    Very friendly museum. Entry with a donation. Plenty to see to explain the story of the area from the perspective of the locals. Loved the doll house ingeniously handcrafted by a local woman. Also another lady gold miner featured with a life sized cut out. Definitely worth a visit

    Today I had a browse here that had some very interesting material. Even with a 25% discount nearly everything was extremely expensive. But I still recommend it to have a look

    A fun excursion and not too long - I've been on many whitewater experiences around the world and having a short van ride up river is a bonus. The surprise high dive mid way thru was a hoot. And a big shout out to Samson, our guide. From the get go he was friendly and respectful (some guides behave a bit too cool, their ego a little on show). On the raft again he was friendly and knowledgeable too, and lots of fun!

    Bruce, Marty and the service/catering manager gave us a great interactive engaging day out in the outdoors. Relaxed, capable and exciting adventurers. All stages were performed seamlessly and successfully. The pitch and narration suited the audience. I won't give away too much for you're surprises. Weather and water clarity were fantastic. The guides answered all questions asked. I'd have liked a bit more chat about the environment.

    An excellent trip superbly guided by Steve. We were lucky to arrange this at very short notice and are really glad we did. We had a really great day. We walked through beautiful forest to a glade with the almost unbelievable flames coming out of the ground. There we enjoyed Steve’s excellent pancakes and a choice of hot drinks. A definite ’must-do’!

    The place to be for paddling action at the end of the year! The town is full of paddlers enjoying the plethora of rivers and the gorgeous landscape.

    Had a truly amazing experience on a once in a lifetime marriage proposal on Mount Glasgow.
    Rob was an awesome pilot with extensive knowledge of the area and made the ultimate proposal come true for my partner.
