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.

Great guide, amazing experience. Was way crazier than I thought it would be and I loved every second of it. Even the huge cricket bugs were friendly

A great experience! My 13yo son and I had a fantastic time. Paul and his crew were great to deal with. No experience necessary and fun for all ages. Highly recommend

I'm 75 years old and I made it through OK, however you do need a level of fitness and agility as some of the sections can be a little challenging. Paul and his off-sider were excellent guides. It was a great adventure and though it's fair to say I probably won't take up full-time caving, it was good fun to have done.

So fun! Really challenging and different, but we felt super comfortable with Paul the whole way. Get ready to get dirty though!

Awesome fun experiencing the Yarra river rapids! Paul made the adventure fun and explained everything really well! Dave and I had a great time getting stuck on rocks and mastering the PinBall! Great way to spend a Saturday morning! Bring a change of clothes!

Excellent morning!!! Highly recommend... it’s like being a tourist in your own city!
Paul was patient and lots of fun with clear instruction. Great for first timers as river is low at this time of year, but enough to get a taste.
Planning my next trip with this company already!

I purchased a ticket from the ticket merchant 2 hours before the start of the Australia Open Men’s Final, I paid $375 for s ticket face value $560 and the service and delivery was excellent. I was dubious when purchase but their system worked perfectly and the ticket arrived 30 mins before the game, perfect timing. I would recommend The Ticket Merchant to any person wanting a great deal when all other outlets are saying sold out”

The only regret was that it wasn't for longer!! So much fun, just one hours drive from Melbourne. Cannot wait to do it again!
Thank you so much Paul

We weren’t sure how we’d feel about going underground in the dark and having to crawl into tight spaces but it turned out to be an interesting adventure. We opted to go for it since the tour description said there were many exit points, but once inside there was no desire to exit but to push forward and experience more. It was fun wedging ourselves through the small holes while at the same time feeling a sense of accomplishment for being able to complete the challenge. Our guide, Paul, was patient with us and encouraging and it was amazing how fast he zipped through each crevice. It is something worth trying especially if you want to conquer your fears and see how far you can push yourself. Might be a good idea to bring knee pads if you have them, but we appreciated the battle scars endured!

We got lucky with this - abseiling in the You Yangs. A nice easy "beginner" grade rock face, a very friendly and knowledgable guide, Adam, and just my partner and I. We had the whole time slot to ourselves and were allowed to go down the rock face as many times as we wanted within our booking time. Would recommend.
