The Jet boat ride was very fun! We also got right up next to the falls. However, we had to cancel the whitewater rafting portion as it was an hour drive to that location the wrong direction for us, as we were heading south that evening.

This was a great value way to enjoy the adventure activities that can be found in Taupo. We started with the cruise on a rainy miserable day and while we knew the helicopter and jet boat were unlikely the staff at all three activities made it so easy to book them in for the next day day. Highly recommend this as a great value combo!

The Helicopter ride was superb with great views over Taupo and the area. Im sure the Jet Boat ride is one of the best in the world yet I am unsure why a couple of people stayed dry.

Highly recommend this activity. Don't go if you want to stay dry, go if you want a fun time and an exhilarating ride. Jeremy was a great captain we loved the boat trip. The White Water Rafting was the highlight of our time in NZ. The staff were rpfantastic, professional and fun. Everything was supplied we were safe and had an exciting trip. Then something to eat just topped it off. We will do this trip again when we return to NZ.

Amazing experience, would definitely recommend to anyone. We did the rafting at the end of May, and even though it was cold we were fine. We had wet suits and thermals and I didn't jump into the water so I was dry. Plus the exercise itself keeps you warm. They also provided us with hot chocolate midway through the trip - so lovely to drift along the river and sip hot chocolate. We were also taken to a hot pool afterwards and were provided with soup when we returned to base. So don't get put off by cold weather - the river itself apparently doesn't vary much in temperature throughout the year! Great for beginners and kids, and even my partner whose done rafting before had a great time!
