This was the first thing we booked for our stay in Auckland and it was so worth it! They picked up from the casino (which my husband liked) and traveled us through the winding hill out of town. The guides were super knowledgeable, passionate and fun to work with. Our group was great too, mostly people in their 20s and... More

Bring a go-pro, the helmets already have the attachment or bring a chest harness attachment. You are picked up in Auckland and driven in a van about 45 minutes to the location. You spend about an...

I actually joined TripAdvisor for the sole purpose of writing this review. Our guide Javier was both exotic and awesome. Very friendly, helpful and funny, extremely experienced. The scenery was of course beyond expectations as we abseiled down the 3 or 4 waterfalls. Highly recommended!!!

Our group of six all arrived expecting to have a good time, and AWOL Adventures not only met, but far exceeded our expectations. The guide did a wonderful job of walking us through the canyon, ensuring our safety while also pointing out all of the best pools to jump in and natural watersides. It amounted to an action-packed, day-long adventure... More
