Very Disappointed
Joanne_H
, Jun. 2022
Very disappointed with the customer service, we didn't end up going on the cruise as I thought I booked a sunset cruise and then received an email the day before stating it was a dawn cruise. I rang the tour operators, and the emergency number to confirm but no-one replied. We couldn't come early for the dawn cruise as there was no accommodation in Katherine. I wouldn't recommend booking through Viator again.

Tranquil, Tour Operator knew his stuff. Loved seeing some rock art. Spectacular scenery. We found it value for money. Morning cruise you don't see crocodiles, the afternoon cruise would be better for this as they would be on the banks sunning themselves

Tinny on the Gorge ‘alternative tour’.
Leanne_T
, Jun. 2022
We got stuck behind a very slow moving freight / delivery van driving out to the Gorge. As a result we arrived at the jetty at 1 minute to 9am. Our boat had already departed much to our disappointment. We were advised that we were meant to arrive 15 mins prior to departure. This advice was not in the VIATOR booking or confirmation, notwithstanding it makes sense to do so, and we would have if not for the traffic and inability to find a close car park. The memorable bit was the workaround by staff to ferry us up the river in a tinny to first crossover to catch up with our tour. Thank you! We really appreciate the agility and the tour was fabulous.

Amazing 3 Gorge cruise
Deborah_B
, Jun. 2022
We did the 3 Gorge cruise. It was fabulous, well worth the money spent. The commentary from our skipper was excellent with a lot of history about the Aboriginals who lived in the area. The ancient geological history was very interesting and the scenery was superb. Even the complimentary bag of snacks and water was a bonus.

What an incredible tour. Would definitely recommend the three gorges. You swim in a waterhole after the third gorge which was a highlight for our family. It was stunning. Very beautiful. What an amazing day out. Thank you.

We did the three gorge cruise. The whole experience from start to finish was amazing. Russell our tour guide was great with his commentary, knowledgeable & a good sense of humour. Swimming in the Lily Pond at the third gorge was refreshing & a great way to top off a wonderful experience!
