Really enjoyed the trip which I took with my 11 year old daughter. Certainly made the hot pools seemed even nicer at the end. Friendly laid back staff and nice jet boat ride back to base. Thank you thrill seekers.

Could not fault this experience! Great value for money!!! Experienced a safe and fun quad biking adventure, had such an amazing time, surrounded by beautiful scenery! My guide Marc was trustworthy and great fun! I then went on an adrenaline fuelled jet boat ride, which was a fantastic experience! Had the best time, a few cringe worthy moments which added... More

Went with a mate while she took her first plunge on the bungee off the bridge! It was amazing! Great location, gorgeous river, and it was all very well managed. She was nervous as, but the operator, James, was a cracker! Had us both laughing and assured we were in safe hands! Hit up Hanmer Thrillseekers for good times!

Thank you Thrillseekers for some real fun activity. Our group of 6 including 2 children had some great time with you all. One of the children was 7ys and too small to have bike of his own. The other, 13yrs had no problems with a bike of her own. The smaller one had to accompany the father on a twin... More

This is a perfect way of experiencing the natural terrain of New Zealand in its most pristine form. Our guide was extremely friendly,... More

We had a great morning rafting with Gavin from Thrillseekers. A great guide who was a long time local, knowledgable about the region and an all round good bloke. The jet boat ride back from the end of the rafting to the base was a real treat too. Well worth it!

Just got back from riding the jet boat in a light rain, but that didn't spoil our fun. We arranged for pickup and were the only family on the boat. Zooming down the river gorge closer and closer to the edges, then spinning around was great for our 5 year old who wants everything faster. All too soon we were... More
