What can I say, you know what your getting into when you sign up for it, and it was just that. river is an awesome river to raft down, absolutely beautiful. Surrounded by cliff walls at times, other times there are trees and bush extending out over the river, a couple spots to get out and swim. One spot where... More

I'll keep it fairly brief. That was the most fun I had in my trip to NZ and if I was back there now, I would have no hesitation in going rafting again. My advice would be to not worry about it at all. If you don't want to fall out, ask the guide and they'll sort you out. If... More

We took this rafting trip as part of an "Adventure Combo" day in Rotorua, and this was easily the highlight of the day. While it's a short trip, it's packed with thrills, including a 20+ foot waterfall and a float down a rapid. They had a helmet with a GoPro mount and I caught it all, including the times I... More

Amy was our raft guide and she was AWESOME!! Sam was on another raft with us and we happened to go with a touring Canaidan Cricket Team. It was a blast and I would recommend it to anyone. There was few older people there (late 60's/70's) and they were absolutely fearless and had a blast too! Sam has created the... More

Stunning location and great fun to be had! Quite safe for a rafting trip which goes over water falls! Most of the people in attendance were novices and a majority of the guides were ridiculously fun and funny! Our boat had Pete, a guide who was so full of himself that he kind of lost focus on the ability of... More

We chose this rafting trip basically because it was the cheapest, and it was worth more than the $170 we spent (for two people). Amy, our rafting guide, was really funny and guided us through the river as a king! No experience needed, go for it

Sam was our guide, and we definitely lucked out having him. For some reason, we were the only ones he had that morning, so we were really fortunate to have a private rafting trip. The next day we were told by someone else in town that we had rafted with Sam Sutton. We didn't realize how significant that was until... More

There was so many companies to chose from to do the Kaituna rafting trip but ultimately we chose Rotorua Rafting because it was the cheapest. So glad we did it was fantastic value and so much fun. We were a group of six from NZ, Germany and America and all of us were buzzing afterwards. There was a lot of... More

Amy was our guide and her guidance and attitude was great. The trip down the river was alot of fun. You get to work up to the 7m drop. I was anxious about doing... More
