I'd never been up in a helicopter before and was a little nervous, but Ben was very professional, friendly and reassuring. The tour and gorge itself was absolutely spectacular and I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to see it during wet season. We did the 8 gorge tour and highly recommend the experience!

Many thanks for your review. A heli tour over the Gorge is always an experience but in the wet season it must have been amazing - a bucket list item!! More

We did the three gorges helicopter tour and it was an amazing experience. It's open door so it's very exhilarating, and loads of fun. The views are spectacular. Our pilot Ben was great - good customer service and commentary throughout the tour.

We booked a 30 minute scenic flight over the Gorge and what a trip. Our pilot Ben was excellent and we where able to take the whole thing in perspective. Doors off the helicopter for the best pics and as there has been a lot of rain the waterfalls were spectacular not to mention just the scenery in general.Not the... More

A helicopter flight over the Gorge is breathtaking at any time of year - but in the wet season it is even better - and particularly with the wet season we have had this year! Thanks for your review. More

Had a great time today on the Nitmiluk HELI-TOURS. They have a number of options. We decided to do the 8 gorge tour which was scheduled for 15mins. We found the office very helpful advising us of the options available given changing weather and water conditions. We made our booking the morning if the trip. On arrival the pilot and... More

We were offered this cruise as a morning optional excursion from The Ghan train. Because of rains overnight, we were disappointed to not be able to do the First and Second Gorge tour, but this cruise offered beautiful cliff scenery and a short but challenging walk to see the rock art work that remains after thousands of years of exposure...

We will be talking about this tour for a long time. The best thing was we had a very small group (just us and 2 more people) so it was a personalised tour. The other boats did have large groups and some were older people. Im not sure what it would have been like in such a large grouping BUT... More

We went during the Wet season, which is generally not a great time to go, however it was a great cruise. Nearly didn't go ahead due to inclement weather, but we did the 2 gorge cruise with a lovely Aboriginal man. I think his name was Roland. He was very knowledgeable and very friendly. Lucky for us there were only... More

VIEWPOINT TREKKING ALONE WON’T MAKE YOU A GORGE EXPERT Listen up trendsetters. You don’t have to do on of these cruises when visiting the Gorge – there’s a ton of other attractions to fill the time. But if you want a full understanding of the place, this does the trick. And that’s speaking as a world class cheapskate – the... More

Incredible scenery, great commentary and explanation from Matt the pilot. Not for the faint hearted - there weren't any doors on the helicopter we were in but I think you can ask for them. Definitely recommend going before wet season begins, only so that when we go again in the wet we can see the drastic change! Great value for... More
