Another awesome experience delivered by a professional crew. Their expertise and patience made for a great day. My partner was a little nervous beforehand, but the expert tuition and care by \"fish\" our guide, really made it an extremely enjoyable experience.

Leon was an awesome River Guide. I went twice! The first time with my my children (aged 18-24). The second time a group of four who were aged 50+. We all had a fantastic time.

I highly recommend this. This was my second experience with Raging Thunder (1988 & 2015). Still a fantastic day with friendly, experienced guides, a great lunch and the photos are always fun to look at. My overseas visitors & I all had a great day with a lot of laughs & memories. Thanks Fisherman!

This was our highlight after 3 weeks in Australia. We had done almost everything but the scenery, the organization and the great energy ( and professionalism) of the guides made it UNFORGETTABLE.
I will recommend this to every one!

Great staff!! The guys were really nice to teach us the basics. I wish I did the Extreme b/c the boats moved quite slow b/c they waited for each other.

What a wonderful experience
At 68 and over weight,and not as agile as I could have been, I thought I might have been a bit passed it, but everyone was terrific. No one made me feel out of it, or a burden. What a wonderful experience. Thanks team

A great day out
A great day out, even though it rained most of the day. Good hosts who gave the impression they really wanted you to enjoy yourself.

We had great time
We had great time for rafting, I enjoyed it so much. The water level is very high because of the weather so that makes the trip more exciting!

great day out
Did the rafting years ago and the rapids were better then but that would be due to the change in the river due to floods over the years. Still it was a great day out. My Girlfriend loved it.

Had a fantastic day
Had a fantastic day. Our team leader catered to the needs of our individual group and his expertise and calm manner helped us to feel safe. Only suggestion - it was impossible to hear the safety points on the bus as our speaker was full of static.

The experience of the guides was invaluable.
The experience of the guides was invaluable. They were friendly and knew what they were doing. The lunch could be improved - more organised and more different basic drinks available. We had a great time overall and it was one of the highlights of our holiday.

Thank you for coming back to me for my feedback. I booked a white-water rafting tour through Travstar. Every step of the booking to the drop-off after the tour went like clock-work. I was very happy with the tour because each member of my family enjoyed ourselves.
I shall have no hesitation in recommending Travstar to my friend/family. I shall certainly use you again because of the positive experience.
