We had an amazing trip with JJ. Who took us down the river in our tubes making it a fun and enjoyable trip with lots of laughter, then in to the glow worm cave. Would defiantly recommend.

We had a fabulous time. Unfortunately our zip line part was cancelled bhwecause the minimum they could run it with was four people, the advantage being that it was just us and the tour guide! Walking through the forest was beautiful, tubing was great fun, the glow worms were awesome and we got to have a hot chocolate while we... More

We are both in our mid 70's and probably just thought we would float into a cave, see the glow worms, and float out again. BUT it was fantastic. We found it exhausting, fun and exciting, also so challenging, loved it all, even it I had to have a wee rest and let the others go ahead for a moment.... More

We went in mid October and it was just the two of us and our guide who was 10/10! Terrified of the cold at first, our fears were squashed when given two layers of thermals, full body wetsuits and booties and gumboots! Floating down the river is great fun and the glow worms are incredible!

i found it very dangerous, as the water was a little above the ankle on 40% of the stream and it was dangerous and it was most likely for money reasons, that we were still brought to do the activity. if - the water was at knee levels, it would have been fabulous. had hit a lot off rocks and...

Went on a cloudy and fairly cold morning. But we were nice and warm in wetsuits and thermals etc provided. We chose to do the zipline in which was great fun albeit quite short. The tubing was relaxing for the most part and a great way to see the beautiful rainforest around Greymouth. There was plenty of opportunity for the... More

Jono was entertaining but very conscientious about doing his job well and keeping us all safe. We had an absolute blast though disappointed that the cave was too flooded for us to continue in. The spa and wine at the end of the activity was a very welcome surprise. We would certainly recommend and do this again.

The staff were helpful, friendly and encouraging, but didn't push you to do anything you were uncomfortable with. Overall we found it a quite strenuous but enjoyable day. Luckily the weather was good. First we did the zip lining (Flying Fox). My wife thought the height at the start was quite scary, but we both found it really exciting. Then... More
