My husband and I had a magnificent rafting journey down the Franklin. I came with zero rafting experience and limited camping experience but this was not an issue. Brett and Clarissa are highly experienced guides and knew how to support all levels of rafting and rock climbing capabilities. I loved the time sitting in the raft soaking up the wilderness and listening to Brett's stories and observations from his 35+ years rafting down the Franklin.
The evenings at camp with the other guests and the guides were very enjoyable - delicious food, fun card games, relaxing to music, reflecting on the wonders of nature. We loved sleeping in the outdoors (tents were not needed during our trip) seeing the night sky lit up brightly and listening to the thundering river.
I am already thinking about my next trip with Brett and his team!

The Franklin River is unique and I thank all the people who contributed to protecting it (& especially Bob Brown). Our trip was fabulous with great participants.
I would recommend more in-depth safety briefing, more daily information on the program and one of the main guides could certainly improve people skills.

We had a great time. The Franklin River is stunning. It really is the trip of a lifetime and not the kind of experience you can find anywhere else. The food was very impressive, we had quail, scallops and prawns with fresh veg right to the last day and the guides are really good at keeping you safe. The water level wasn't vey high so there was a bit of portage but everyone got stuck in helping and we got through them fairly quickly. Highly recommend.

Very professional outfit with excellent pre-trip information and very accomodating with special requests. Guides were all excellent with vast experience and good knowledge of the river. With their emphasis on safety, I never felt at real risk of misadventure. Food was excellent but above all it was an unforgettable experience to travel down this remote and pristine waterway. My congratulations go to the operators of this well run trip.
