100% excellent

Great adrenaline rush. As it had been raining a few days the river was much higher and fast flowing, this made it even more exciting. The 7 metre waterfall was just exhilarating! The additional swim through another waterfall was a fun bonus. The staff were the best, safety was always at the heart and they were thorough. They made the event so much fun. I would definitely recommend it. Can’t wait to do it again.

The day was exciting from the moment we arrived to the moment we were shown fantastic pictures from the days activity. The highlight of the day was definitely our rafting guide, Joel. He made learning the different techniques with the boat crew fun and kept spirits high throughout the entire experience. This activity is definitely a must

This was a great trip and one of the highlights of our stay in New Zealand - a great event for me and my teen kids. Pete, our guide, was the best. We also liked the photo package offered by the vendor. almost a 100 pictures taken at key spots on the river for a reasonable price.

This tour company was the best! We had the best time on our rafting trip, got to do everything with a great guide, Christy! We wanted to go again and again. Exhilarating and even better in the rain.

Greatly enjoyed the trip up until the boat tipped over on the largest waterfall. That was very frightening to my wife, but we made it through. Just be prepared that it could occur. The before and after was great.
