Hard to say how amazing it was. Been here three times and recommend my friends to come. My friends especially come for this one on their honeymoon. Very unforgettable experience! Highly recommend!

We looked throughout NZ for a rafting company open during the winter. Rotorua was our saviour and Raftabout our chosen one. They picked us up from our accommodation for the Kaituna run. The staff were brilliant and the experience was mind blowing! This was our first white water rafting experience and it exceeded expectations. 7ft waterfall and a run that... More

Got to enjoy the Kaituna run. Great experience and the guides were good value. Only wish it was longer as it's over pretty quickly. Highly recommend though...

Did the Kaituna run with the missus. We were the only 2 on the raft with the guides and support crew and it was fantastic. I WILL be back to do the other grade 5 run.... If your worried about doing the higher grade runs, don't be. You are in goo hands!

Nice rafting experience in Kaituna river with a 7 meter fall. The guides are really nice and teach you a lit about Maori culture.

We had an amazing time. It was our first time rafting and were slightly nervous about the experience. I guess mainly about the unknown. Anyway the staff were really helpful and very safe and prepared you for everything and anything. Good facilities for changing and more than adequate gear. We felt safe the whole time and were so thankful to... More

Our guide (Canadian Dave) was the best. He was very animated, down to earth and fun. Def made our experience that much more amazing. From the monster drop, to jumping in the river and going over a fall solo. Couldn't ask for a better experience for a first time rafting. The photos were def worth the purchase too. Memories that...

Had a fun filled adventure with raft about or river rats. I have done a lot of white water rafting before so had no high expectations but this was definitely the best one I have got to do. Would highly recommend this to everyone.

We had a group of 7 with varing levels of experience rafting. Part of the group opted for sledging and part opted for Rafting. The Sledging folks enjoyed themselves imensly. They were thouroughly exhausted at the end of the trip. Those of us in the raft all felt the trip was short, but it is an awesome experience. We did... More

As first time rafters we did the Kaituna waterfall excursion. This was a great introduction to rafting and my girlfriend and I had a great time. The experience left us wanting to go again maybe trying a half day trip next time. With great facilities at the shop for getting changed and preparing and with friendly helpful staff it was... More
