My husband and I hiked the Annapurna Circuit with Nature Trail in November 2017. We arrived at Nature Train on our first day in Kathmandu and needed a guide the next day (we did our research prior to arriving in Kathmandu and heard Nature Trail had good reviews). Bishnu was very friendly, and organised our 12 day hike and guide with ease. We had an incredible time on our hike thanks to our guide, Sudip. He was very professional and we felt he really cared about us, making sure that we acclimatised well. Sudip took us on the hiking trails rather than the road where possible and always organised the best room at the tea house. Thanks so much Sudip for making our trip a memorable one!

Amazing trip with WBT - after a couple of days we were looking at each other thinking "what have we done"! We were cold, permanently wet and a bit miserable. The weather was pretty horrid and on Day 3 the guides called a rest day to see off the worst of the rain. Things started to warm up, we got better at paddling and more used to sleeping in caves and washing with very cold river water. We grew into the trip and then wished it would never end. The sun shone, the river raged and we whooped with joy on every rapid. Our guides - Blakey and Eric - were simply phenomenal. Amazing paddlers, great fun, excellent man managers. The place is wild but we always felt totally safe. The food was totally mad - fillet steak, sushi, wallaby bolognese, prawns, lamb chops. We carried it all in and left no trace. It's a true wilderness experience - there are very few of these left in the world. Water By Nature open the door to another world. We feel honoured to have entered it for 10 days.

In December 2016 I spoke with Brett about the possibility of organising a Franklin River rafting trip for 6-10 friends. We spoke a number of times over the next 3 months during which he provided all the information to put together a trip for ten with most of us having no or minimal river experience. We delayed the start of our trip by one day as rain was forecast and river levels at the time were low, meaning more pack hauling. Well the rain came and the river rose. Even tho it rained we stayed warm in our full steamer suits and paddling, paddling, paddling! The river levels rose to give us just the right amount of excitement without having to rope around too many of the bigger rapids. The trip was a total success thanks to the seriously good gear and preparation, generous food provisioning and highly competent guiding. Thank you Brett, Scot and Antoine! We highly recommend Water by Nature to anyone thinking of a trip down the Frankin River.

Our second time, booking with Brett and Klaudia they provided great information before the trip. Our guides Eric and Mark were great, looking after our safety, sharing their knowledge of the river and great snacks/meals. Immersing yourself into this beautiful place is a real treat, and one I'm sure to do again.

Thanks Brett and Claudia for a fantastic time.
Kristen, Leighton, Callum, Stephanie, Brennan and myself had a great time.
A great way to start 2017, with good weather and river levels.
The kids and I are still talking about the trip and look forward to coming back!!
For anyone wanting to explore the beauty of Tasmania, in a tranquil wilderness setting, with some adrenalin to mix, this trip is a must!!
