These guys are great! Friendly, informed staff that are lots of fun. They have only local guides (New Zealanders) so you get a great idea of the area, and they throw in a bit of Maori folklore along the way. This was the most expensive option for rafting in the Taupo area (by $4) but the best value for money since they picked us up form Taupo and took us back, and their package just included a lot more things like an optional waterfall jump, hot chocolate on the river, more time on the river, a beer and a gourmet hot dog with homemade relishes when we got back... They took heaps of pics on the trip too so noone else had to (available to buy at the end), but not in a way that interupted things at all.
Heres their website by the way: http://www.raftingnewzealand.com/
I would highly recommend rafting with this lot!
