Testimonials - Noosa Everglades

Thank you once again for a great trip! I have just completed a positive review on Travel Advisor. Overall, I would give our trip a 10. The only thing that would have made it better is if we had opted to stay for two nights instead of one! :)
Thank you for everything!

Kind regards,

Dear Kanu-Kapers Team,

We think that the tour was a 10 out of 10 and we cannot think of anything that could be improved. And we would definitely recommend it to friends and our family.

Thank you for the great tour!

Best regards

Finn, Leon and Fabio

In response to your email…

1. 9
2. Start the kayaking in still water (hard work across the lake, though it was a bit windy on the day of our trip……..sounds pretty soft!!) for less fit paddlers.
3. Yes, we already have.

The Sydney Morning Herald had a feature on the 10 best kept secrets in Australian travel (I think Saturday 16/1/16) and the Noosa Everglades was one of them!

Thanks for helping us to enjoy a great day, it was a real highlight of our holiday.

... I would like to thank you for the opportunity to go out paddling on the lake last Friday. While the weather could have been better, I still had a wonderful time exploring a beautiful part of the Sunshine Coast. To relax and take in the views and be at one with nature was just what I needed to unwind from a stressful job. This was the first time I had been to the Sunshine Coast, and it had been a long time since I’ve done any kayaking, and you made me feel more than welcome. I would have stayed out for longer if it weren’t for the strong winds in the afternoon. To go out of your way to give me a lift back to town in the cold and rain and to share with me your Easter eggs was a lovely touch at the end of the day. If I’m ever up your way again I would like to see the Everglades – maybe on an overnight guided tour as I have never camped before. I will definitely recommend your services if I know of any family or friends visiting the area.

Thank you very much for the photos. It is nice redoing a very nice day - even if only virtually. It was really great standing out as one of the great thing we experienced in Australia. Thanks to Rikki for excellent guiding, food and everything. I have already recommended to several people - now only we need to see if they get to the Noosa corner of the world.

- Eric Blas

Just to inform you that we received our photos last week which where excellent……My family and I had a terrific time in what it is a world class location, and breathtaking views. I have spoken to a number of my colleagues and have recommended that they undertake this marvelous trip.

We did a self guided kayak last Saturday to the Everglades and wanted to thank your staff for the opportunity to do this. Firstly Dianne rang me and let me know the trip was available and Michael made him self available to help get us organized on the day. Everything was well organized and professional. Can you pass on our thanks to both Dianne and Michael??
We had the best time and it has reinforced to us how much of this beautiful place that we haven’t yet explored. We have just arrived from WA where we both paddled a fair bit. It has been a big move for us but we reckon this part of the world is amazing.
Thanks again for the brilliant kayaking…

- Julie Kershaw

Just want to thank you very much for the wonderful time i had on Saturday.
My eyes just drank in the scenery....it was very refreshing.

- Lee, Emma, Caitlin, Exekiel, Isaac and Naomi

Thanks again for the great day. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The scenery was wonderful and we were so very lucky with the day, and of course, the guide! I have already recommended the trip to friends who are going up to Noosa.

Today I have put in the post an “official” thankyou (hand-written and everything) for you. It was such a wonderful day, and we agreed (yes even the kids, without prompting) that it was the best day out of the entire holiday. It was so well organised, the equipment was great, and morning tea and lunch superb. Your subtle guidance also greatly contributed to the whole experience. To me, one of the “bonus” aspects is that it helped Stef and Sammi to put into perspective the hype of the Gold Coast and theme parks, compared to what they really like doing, which is a nature based experience, and making their own fun (they especially loved the bit when they swam and towed the kayaks). Overall it was a terrific day in every aspect - even the weather was good!

Thanks for sending us our 30th anniversary captured on film. We had a lovely day and couldn’t of thought of a better way to spend it. Thanks for your company and your excellent guidance on the water and your chef skills for lunch….. We can tell that you are in the right job and we wish you all the best for your future solo guidance on and around Lake Cootharaba. I would imagine that we might hire some kayaks again sometime and bring some other visitors as well. See you then. Thanks heaps.

- Noel and Jenny Peters

Thank you, we brought our team up from Melbourne and the whole experience was awesome. We enjoyed the physical challenge, scenery and trying something new. The staff were excellent and so were the meals.

- Schiavello

Thanks for the CD of the day's kayaking - really enjoyed reliving the fun we had!!!! I wasn't too keen on my sumo wrestling arms and have vowed to reduce them. Christine also wanted to know why we hadn't told her how ridiculous her hat looked but I am sure we did!!! It was a great day and aside from the kayaking the food was fabulous.
Thanks again!

- Sharon Webb

Thank you very much for your efforts and thank you very much again for the wonderful day we had. We just got home and had a look at the photos and we all had big smiles on our faces. It certainly was a great day and we all enjoyed it very much.

We went to the Gold Coast after being in the Noosa area and did a couple of theme parks with Annabelle, but I think she had a much better time kayaking.

Thanks very much again and have a lovely day.

- Steffi, Jason and Annabelle

Many thanks for a lovely day out on Saturday. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely visit the area again.

- Steve and Robynne Bailey

I just wanted to thank you again for your terrific support, generosity and generosity of spirit recently when Susan and I returned wet and dishevelled... We will definitely recommend your business to others. Cheers and thanks again (for the slowly ripening passionfruit)
