This was the best tour of my trip by far. The place where they took us was amazing, it's called Piha. The guides were really fun and always caring about our safety. Also gave us very good brief training before starting the activity. Definitely recommend it!

Went in not really knowing what to expect and far surpassed anything I could have ever imagined. Want to do this every weekend it I could! Night canyoning was a completely surreal experience would definitely advise doing it!

Canyoning was by far the best way to begin our trip to New Zealand! Conor was a fantastic guide to take me and two friends for a full day through Piha Canyon. We went in June, and it wasn't too cold. The wetsuits definitely keep you warm in the water. As someone who isn't typically coordinated or necessarily athletic, canyoning... More

We did the full day Piha canyon trip with Cam and it was incredible. It pushed us out of our comfort zone whilst at all times feeling safe and secure. The scenery throughout the tour is incredible and Cam really knows the area well. This is probably the most enjoyable tour I have done in Auckland.

I wasn't really sure what to get up to in Auckland, so I booked the Piha day trip, and it ended up being one of my favorite experiences I had in New Zealand. I was picked up from Sky Tower and driven to Piha, where myself and a group of strangers all were introduced to the basics of abseiling. From... More

We did the full day Blue Canyon trip with Connor and it was phenomenal. Fun (but challenging) hike into the rain forest where we did several abseils (thru waterfalls), freestyle and controlled jumps into pools, and natural water slides. Crazy part was that the hike into and out of the rain forest was uphill both ways?? Don't forget to bring... More

Did the Blue Canyon trip. Amazing scenery and fun jumps/rappelling. The hike in and out was fairly strenuous, but it was worth it. The company supplies a full wet suit set and does a full safety briefing before you get in the water.

This trip is the perfect way to spend a day in Auckland. Even if the weather isn't super nice (it rained quite a bit for us) it still was amazing. Bring extra cash for the photos, you'll want to be able to show your friends and family this experience!
