We enjoyed our time with Kaitiaki adventures. It's not so scary as i thought in the beginning and so much fun! None of us fell of the boat, but of course we still got wet on 7m waterfall.

Kaitiaki Adventures is a must do in Rotorua! We went first thing in the morning and it was so much fun. They make you feel very safe and are well organised. They explain everything so well so even if you are a bit nervous they put you at ease. The river is STUNNING and worth the trip even of itself.... More

What an experience! I was buzzing from start to finish. I have also been rafting on the rapids in Tully, Australia and this surpassed it every way from the roaring rapid, lush rainforest setting and the worlds largest commercially rafted waterfall! Also the pictures that the staff took are amazing! I would do again in a heartbeat. Nick.

The staff are amazingly friendly and so helpful at organising your entire experience. The guides were hilarious and I felt safe at all times. I would recommend this activity as a must do for anyone visiting Rotorua or New Zealand in general as there is nothing quite like it and with the highest commercial waterfall in the world, it's a...

I decided to show my son the benefit of putting his phone down for a wee while and do something a lot more interesting. And he agrees it was worth it. A great crew showed us a great time and a lot of fun

One of the best experiences of my life! Enjoyed every moment of it. Intially i was scared out of my brains listening to the health and safety talk but so very happy i got to do this with Kaitiaki Adventures. Cannot wait to do this again. Raft guides were knowledgable and experienced. A++ The view is beautiful.
