Not only is the activity awesome, the scenery and the waterfalls are fantastic! Would definitely reccommend if you are... More

First of all they were very professional with their work, and anyone who has done this kind of activity knows how important that is. Secondly they made the day very enjoyable for the whole group by being organised and friendly and Thirdly the trip itself was both beautiful and exciting in the forest near Piha beach.

Great day, excellent fun. Some great jumps, slides and abseiling. The guides were very experienced and knew what they were doing (which is important when they are hooking you up to abseil over a waterfall). The canyon is in a beautiful setting too.

At first I struggled with the hike and abseiling but after that I had a great time! So much to do and so exciting and you always fell safe. Lovely beach to end up on aswell :)

AWOL is awesome!! I had such a fun time and an authentic New Zealand adventure! It definitely did not feel commercialized or touristy--more like spending a day with family and I felt completely safe the whole time. It is absolutely thrilling to repel down waterfalls, slide through rocks and take in the fantastic views--life dreams fulfilled! I have been in... More

I had one of the best times on my whole trip doing this tour. It took this tour whilst docked in Auckland off the Celebrity Solstice. It was a tour that Celebrity offered. It was definitely one of the best tours that they offered. I was a bit nervous to start with but the guys were encouraging and really knew... More
