Awesome daytrip with Russ and Ryan. I've never seen such hardworking guides. The trip was extremely well organized, with everything thought of well in advance. Equipment was top quality and in great condition. Great guiding all day with very clear instructions and information on the area's geographical and human history, which is quite rich. Lads were clearly very passionate about... More

Russ and Ryan worked hand in hand and took great care of us. They gave us lots of information about the area where the canyoning took place, thought of every little detail (eg special dietry requirements, toilet stops). Ryan and Russ were really safety conscious and clearly knew what they were doing. Behind every corner was another awesome challenge (abseils,... More

This day trip is worth it in every single way! After the challenge of an approx one hour hike well into the mountains, you're rewarded with beautiful views of the canyon and waterfalls that you'll spend the rest of the day descending. Awesome abseils, jumps, slides, and a zip-line fill your trip down through the canyon. Wayne and Russ were... More

This is a fabulous experience that all active fun loving kiwis should do. Thank you Russ and Ryan. Every part of the day was great, the drive up into the beautiful valley, then the hike up learning of the history, the abseiling, big jumps (which were completely and utterly exhilarating), the slides and zip lining. Challenging, scenic, physical healthy fun.... More

Wayne and Russ were very knowledgeable and helpful in our first canyoning experience. It was unbelievable to see how we progressed down the canyon - abseiling, zip-lining and jumping into pools of fresh water . The views were stunning and all captured with many memorable photos taken by Russ/Wayne. The trip was well organized and a wonderful way to see... More
