TESTIMONIALS AND FEEDBACK

 

Group Activities
 

"I thought Aardvark were absolutely fabulous, I cannot praise the Aardvark team more for what they laid on for us.  I also had the pleasure of the guys on the Extreme Adventure South at Dover and some of my comments will apply to that as well. I thought the guys & girls were really good with the kids, they kept them focused on safety whilst not detracting from the activity or the fun.  Safety is a priority but the manner in which it was addressed was such that it was a non-negotiable without getting ratty at the kids so I think they really gained the kids respect. At all times the interactions they had with everyone, adults and kids and whether during activities or later in the evenings were enjoyable and fun. The venues were great, especially Blackmans Bay for the abseiling on our pretour.  Please pass on out thanks and appreciation." - Robert Stirling, Venturer Leader on behalf of Scouts Western Australia

Abseiling

 

"Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful experience today, abseiling Wrest Point! I felt very safe and secure knowing Aardvark Adventures had all bases covered. Thank you also for making the go-pro available for me to wear on the descent." - Judy Kearsley

 

"The abseil was fantastic, by the way - Martin and Matt were great, and we have nothing but praise for the whole day. Thank you for an excellent day!" - Jen Li

 

"I just wanted to take the time to recognise the fantastic work by two of your staff. I participated in the Abseil down the Gordon Dam on 6/4/2014. Not only was it an amazing experience it was made even better with two of the most fun, enthusiastic and friendly instructors. I really can’t speak more highly of Macca’s and Molly’s ability to make us feel at ease and to make the experience of a lifetime fun and enjoyable and safe. Please pass on my thanks to them." - Kristy Richardson

 

"I would just like to say that I had a wonderful day that was made all the better by your two outstanding staff members in Macca and Molly. Their professionalism and easy going attitude made the experience all the better. I have several abseil mad mates up here in Brisbane and I will be strongly recommending your adventure to them. Once again - many thanks for a great day." - Andrew McLeod

 

"Thanks to Phil (and your jokes) and his cool calm and collected crew for helping me climb over The EDGE (of the casino) yesterday. I have never abseiled before and I'm not so great with heights but I did it and definitely do it again, Thanks again guys!" - Marita Coad

 

"Can't fault our abseil yesterday. Very professional, very safe and views to die for. Thanks, Macca!" - Ned Chewy

 

"Day 3 of filming in Tasmania starts off on a high, literally! Here's the group abseiling 73 meters from the top of Hobart's tallest building, Wrest Point Hotel Casino. Brave stuff by all! Thanks to Aardvark Adventures for making this happen and keeping us safe. Day 3 of our Tasmanian TV adventure (Can Do) ends with some white water rafting. Hang on! Thank you Aardvark Adventures." - Charity Adventure TV

 

"Awesome! Phil was friendly considerate and supportive whilst bringing all the fun and adventure that we were after. I'd highly recommend to anyone!" - Nadia Adams

 

"The abseiling experience, now this is the real definition for adrenalin. I have never had to beat my fears like this before, because looking down at a 150 metre drop, with all the mist & the wind & the elements, and with all that I had to jump & hold that rope & go down 150 meters. It really made me a man! More adrenalin than running of the bulls!" - Miguel Maestre

 

 

Rafting

 

"Just wanted to let you know that our group had a fantastic time on Sunday. Well worth the money spent and I have been spreading the word for sure and encouraging friends to sign up. Also would like to add that our guide, Matthew, did a fabulous job - very thorough with the safety tips, making sure we were all suited up properly and keeping a close eye on us. Please pass on our appreciation to him - he made it an extremely fun and worthwhile experience." - Lisa Teh

 

"The Woofers Dog Grooming team had a great day out on the Derwent rafting.. With your very professional guide Matt, who made the day awesome, now for our next adventure! Well done Aardvark.." - Angela Lawler, Woofers Dog Grooming

 

"I just wanted to drop an email to say what a fantastic time we all had doing the Mersey River Rafting Adventure.  Our guide, Matt, was fantastic and a lot of fun to spend the day with.  We really enjoyed all aspects of the day. Thanks for a great day." - Jocelyn Huigsloot

 

"A great day Phil, would recommend this to any organisation looking to challenge the team and have fun." - Peter Anderson

 

 

Team Building

 

"Best team building day I have been on with 10 years employment with Aurora. Such a great time." - Rachael Miller, Aurora Energy

 

"Highly recommended. The enthusiasm that has been generated in my team from this is already having a direct impact in the workplace. Thanks Phil and the team - look forward to the next adventure." - Tim Salmon, Health & Safety Manager, Cadbury Australia

 

"The communication with Aardvark Adventures whilst planning the experience was great, we provided some guidance as to what we liked and didn't like in team building, and they completed and organised the rest. I really enjoyed all of the activities. Was the best team building I have ever done." - Tameka Park, Aurora Energy

 

"Thanks for a great day, everybody embraced the activities with a level of enthusiasm that frankly, suprised me! All our group are basking in the euphoria of a great day out.  It was fantastic to see the teams working together and enjoying the challenges they were set, I'm sure our teamwork on the day and better knowledge of each other will translate to better outcomes working together. I don't know about anyone else but the corners of my mouth were a tad higher than they were two days ago." - Mark Cashion, Dytech

 

"I am absolutely scared senseless (to put it politely!) about entering water that exceeds my knees!  I’m pushing 45 years of age and I’ve had a fear of water for as long as I can remember.  So, when I was asked to participate in a “fun” rafting trip as part of a team building exercise, I absolutely freaked!  Enter Phil Harris – together with our Training Manager, they convinced me (after 2 lengthy discussions) to take part, in what Phil described, as a real buzz! Yeh right, I kept thinking! He guaranteed me that I would be as safe as houses and would even come out smiling! After a few sleepless nights I embarked on the challenge. I was so proud of myself for giving rafting a go, but more importantly I have Phil to thank for helping me overcome my fear of the water and for being such a great team leader and mentor. I would highly recommend Aardvark Adventures for a very enjoyable, worthwhile and professional experience – one that even I would undertake AGAIN!!!  Great work guys!!" - Tourism Area Leader, Cadbury Claremont

 

 

Day Tours

 

"I just wanted to thank you for organising our tour with Tom Graham as our guide. We had an absolutely wonderful day. We found Tom to be knowledgeable, very easy to get along with and very obliging, he made our day tour one to remember. Thank you Tom and thank you Aardvark." - Anne and Colin Bridle
