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 and supportive team. Fun for the whole family with no rafting experience. Perfect day out and the little bloke already wants to buy our own boats as a result.

Had the most wonderful time abseiling at Mt Buffalo with Adventure Guides Australia.
The staff are there with you through the whole experience.
I will definitely do it again.
Brad and Trina guided me down the rock face and I have never felt more safe.
Highly recommend this for anyone and everyone.

Great way to finish 2021, on the Ovens River rafting with the Adventure Guides Australia out of Myrtleford. High recommendation.
Guides were fantastic. Their knowledge of the river and local area was first rate.
Cannot thank you enough for your time.

What a way to bring in the New Year! My husband and I were very impressed with our afternoon kayaking experience with David and Serena. They were both terrific, we felt really safe and we enjoyed the great conversation. We really recommend Adventure Guides Australia and will definitely book something again during our next visit!

[Disclaimer; the camp was a good experience regarding the abseiling, this is only about my experience and interaction with one person. I would also like to say Hannah is extremely good with people and was very understanding and very easy to talk to]

When I went to Mt Buffalo with a school camp (26 students) in March 2019, we did hiking and abseiling on the first two days and on the the third day we did caving. We were told the night before to wear long pants that we could fit knee pads under or over. We were to partake in two caving experiences. One dry and one wet. I wasn't too keen on either of these as I am claustrophobic and have very high anxiety. I made this very clear and still went ahead with the first caving/hike experience which was the dry one. I had about 3 breakdowns which ended in my sitting and crying and having a panic attack. I find these sort of things very traumatising especially when panic attacks are involved. I didn't make a scene about the first experience when we got back I just sat down and told the teacher I was not going to do the wet one as i had been told it was a lot tighter and you would be crawling through small spaces on your hands and knees.
When my group got ready to go caving in the wet cave I just went over and sat down (As I was told to do by the teacher). I was then asked by a lady i don't know the name of 'What's your excuse' as to why I wasn't going. At this point I was already getting angry as they had been yelling at my friend because she couldn't get knee pads under her SKINS. Which we were told to wear - long pants. But no, we were told the knee pads had to go under so the man; Les started yelling at her and being extremely rude. So; I responded to the lady that it wasn't an excuse and I actually had a reason. She replied very very rudely with 'well what is it then?'. I knew this wasn't going to go down well so i just said I am claustrophobic and this is where Les jumped in. (Remember Les - he's important) He then told me that I did not have a choice in participating unless I had a medical certificate saying I had been diagnosed with claustrophobia AND I was taking medication for it. At this point I was very very angry. I had never met this man in my life and he was making his own judgements and opinions on my mental health. I told him he doesn't know me or my life and he basically spat back in my face saying 'don't give me that bullsh*t'.
It ended with me yelling at him saying I wasn't going to have another panic attack over a caving experience that i didn't want to do or was interested in doing and since this was OPTIONAL I didn't even need to do it. I was dragged away by teachers and my friend and I broke down again and sat on the floor crying and at this point I was on the verge of another panic attack and couldn't breathe. (As was my friend) It took us about 20-40 minutes to fully calm down.
I was very very disappointed in this man's behaviour, there was so much that happened that I did not explain or mention; other things he said that i will just leave out. He should not be working with people let alone kids, he has no understanding and did not try to understand. I did enjoy the abseiling and everything else we did but these activities were done with Hannah and she was absolutely lovely and I really liked her.
I do recommend the activities even the caving especially if you're not claustrophobic but I am very angry, upset and disappointed with the guide Les. I did not have a good experience with him.

My husband and I kayaked and abseilled with Adventure Guides on Australia Day. We started our day by kayaking down the Ovens River with David and Will as our guides. It was a really fun morning. My husband can't swim and lacked confidence and muscle-tone, but he was skillfully supported by Will all the way.
In the afternoon we went up Mount Buffalo to abseil with Will. We were lucky to be the only two in the group. We are an older couple and not the fittest people in the world. I was impressed by how cheerful, understanding and supportive Will was.
I would recommend these activities led by Adventure Guides Australia to everyone and anyone.
