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

Great day out, couldn't fault any part. Our instructor, Javier, was fab; interactive, safety conscious , had a sense of humour and informed us well on what to expect and what to do. The trip is well planned and is great value for money. Go on, you know you want to!

We had an excellent time on the night Canyon in Piha. Our guide, Cam, was great fun an very professional. He made the trip interesting as well as adventurous with his knowledge of the flora and forma. Highly recommended, thanks.

Did the full day Piha adventure and it was absolutely amazing. Take note, this is not for the feint of heart! The team does their best to accommodate people with needs throughout the adventure, but this is canyoning, as it says - hiking, abseiling, swimming, bouldering, etc... so be prepared for that. I joined a pretty large group that had... More

I went abseiling down a waterfall with AWOL as part of a Royal Caribbean shore excursion. I will always remember New Zealand as the place I did the unordinary and donned a wet suit, went down a waterfall, and jumped off a cliff into a natural pool. Our guide, Cam is definitely a professional in the outdoor world.

AWOL Canyoning was a great company, very organized and the staff was awesome. Our guide Connor made everyone feel really comfortable. We did the full day Piha experience and it was well worth it. You really get to experience the National Park with hiking, swimming (water is pretty cold, so be prepared) and propelling down down cliffs and waterfalls. We... More

Thank you for the great review and nice to have you along! Just to clarify, the first person down is top belayed by the guide (a second backup rope controlled by the guide), if you weren't the first person down you might have not seen this process take place. After that we have options to either use bottom belay, carry... More
