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.

Did this tour today with a fantastic group of friends… the boat trip was amazing and Eugene completely made it.., his knowledge of the history of the river, the wildlife and his stories were hilarious. Laughed our way up the river.. highly recommend for a beautiful day out.

Stunning setting and a superbly knowledgeable guide. We enjoyed a September tour of the amazing Blackwater River during a clear evening. Flawlessly friendly and seamless booking experience from start to finish- I will definitely be back. And special thanks to our guide Eugene for his wit, charm and endless anecdotes- he made the trip super special.

Wonderful half magical, half historical and yes another half eco guided trip on the Blackwater with the famous Eugene. He is a born story-teller and is tales are enthralling. He is also a wonderful guide to the eco-system on the river. We all from the oldies to the smallies thoroughly enjoyed our time with him.

This has to be one of the best excursions we have ever done, from the initial phone reservation to the booking in staff in the boat house it couldn’t have been any better. Then it’s on to the river with our guide Eugene, there’s so much to see from castles to unbelievable scenery and of course all the information and history Eugene provided. The boats are great fun, easy to handle and the tuition/safety is spot on. Highly recommend this to anyone it truly is a hidden gem in a beautiful location.

We had a great trip with skipper Eugene who is very knowledgable about the bird life as well as the history of the great houses on this stretch of the blackwater river. It gives a totally differnt perspective on the river and on how important this river was in historical times. Eugene was generous with his time and his knowledge - we even saw a kingfisher during the trip.
