Was collected outside our hotel at 12noon then relaxing gorgeous bus trip to Glenorchy where we met our jet boat. Morgan and Jessie were our guides they were professional, knowledgable and had great sense of humor. In the hotel by 545pm. Thanks for a great time.

We had an amazing day on this tour, from the very friendly helpful team including Heidi,Morgan, Ferne and Ben the jet boat driver. The day started with the tour and finished with jet boat ride of about an hour which was fun and informative. Beautiful scenery and the excellent team made it a day to remember. Thank you so much

A must do attraction in Queenstown. You get to see amazing views of Lake Wakatipu, walk in the forest (and sit in a Lord of the Rings chair, becoming a hobbit for a few seconds) and have a great boat trip at Dart River, that was used as location for the Peter Jackson’s trilogies and other movies. In the autumn/winter,... More

Loved the experience, our guides were really nice, jet-boat driver Elliot was knowledgable and friendly, my family and I had an enjoyable time. We were lucky though, they rolled out the weather option to back out but we took the risk and the weather was fine for the beautiful scenery!

This was amazing, we froze but the scenery was worth it. Couldn't feel me toes the entire trip but for some reason we didn't care, the wilderness walk through the NZ bush was nice. Tour guides were all fantastic too!

The Dart River Jet boat and funyak was incredible! The views seen whilst on the tour was unforgettable. The team at Dart River were helpful, kind, fun and overall great - made the trip worth while! It is also worth the money that you pay!

Took the family on the Dart River Wilderness Jet Tour on a day off during our recent ski holiday to Queenstown. It was an easy day out and a great way to relax in between skiing days. The jet boat ride was fun and much longer than I was expecting. Make sure you dress warmly. The forest walk and driving... More

We went on the dart river safari and thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the kids (ages 11 & 16). It was actually snowing as we drove to glenorchy, so we were offered a full refund. We all decided to go ahead with tour and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Jet boat ride was fantastic while it was snowing. Sounds... More
