“Excellent!”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

We booked a half day canoe trip with Andy on the Warren River. We had a mixed aged group, 3 adults and 2 children (aged 7 and 10).

Andy was an excellent guide, all equipment and life jackets provided. He was informative and very relevant to all ages, tea / coffee and cake also provided half way through.

We would throughly recommend booking Andy. It was probably our best day by far in Pemberton even if it did start raining at the end!

“brilliant day trip”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

We went on a half day canoe trip with Andy, and it was the highlight of our weekend in Pemberton. A leisurely paddle on the Warren River, some wildlife spotting, several opportunities to go for a swim and morning tea with delicious home made cake. Andy proved very knowledgeable about flora, fauna and pretty much everything else and had an amazing ability to pull our little group of people who had never met before, together. The canoes are easy to steer and very stable, everybody felt safe and enjoyed themselves.
Definitely a good value tour I'd recommend, Very keen to come back and do a multiple day trip soon!

“Night Canoeing”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

I had contacted Andy by email before my arrival in Oz and he was prompt and helpful in reply. My 13yr old son and I decided to try a night canoe trip. Andy met us at the river where we were camping and was immediately energetic and entertaining. We set off upstream with Andy continuously informing us about the local flora and fauna and settlement history. The paddling was sedate and relaxing.
Once we had reached a fallen Karri tree we turned and headed back downstream, stopping en route for supper. Avocados from his garden, lovely cheeses, crackers etc were rounded off by fresh coffee, milo and a delicious homemade cake, the remains of which we took home with us.
After supper we continued downstream as darkness fell and switched on our spotlights to search for critters in the trees and river. This was great fun, with marron and perch clearly visible under the surface and water spiders crawling on top. Black cockatoos flew squabbling overhead, kookaburras laughed at our technique and, having negotiated some gentle rapids, we settled in a lower pool to enjoy the wonders of a star-filled sky and rising moon.
It is hard to imagine a better guide than Andy. He is thoroughly endearing and amusing and we felt safe and comfortable at all times.
Others who had originally organised the trip failed to turn up (please don't do this, he is a one man operator) but Andy refused my offer of paying for the usual minimum of 2 adults, so we had a personal guide at a bargain cost, and he even drove us back to our campsite to save us the walk home!
All of the offered hikes and trips sound great, and when next in the area we plan on taking a few days' hike for a real getaway experience.
I could not recommend Andy any higher. He is a fount of facts and tales and a truly good bloke.

Thanks again, Andy.

“Very enjoyable, any age, any ability”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

We joined Andy for a morning canoeing on the Warren River in high summer. There was a mixed group of 8 of us on the day ranging from 9 years upwards. Andy was an excellent host and guide, providing a relaxed morning out including an excellent morning tea that was very appreciated.

Me and the girlfriend went on this as something to do on our romantic weekend away from the big smoke. Exactly what we wanted - good time length, great value and Andy was a great bloke. Definitely recommended
