We embarked on a thrilling ride down the Waikato River with Tony our fun driver/guide. He was very knowledgeable and obviously has a great passion for what he does! It was a great way to spend an afternoon and our visit to the Orakei Korako Cave and Geothermal Park was an added bonus. The 360's on the trip back to... More

I haven't been on their boat yet but We just popped by to ask for directions and about their business. Adam and the other staff were fun to talk to and pointed us to local geothermal features. They have capacity for large groups and booking groups is a way to save a little per person!

We did The Squeeze, it was a great experience with a very entertaining driver/captain in Jeremy who was fantastic! A highlight was the lovely warm water and waterfall. The jet boat was also fun and exciting. Overall it was fantastic, but not a cheap day out for a family of 5.

from the beginning this company was professional and friendly. They went out of their way to accommodate our party of 13. This included our transfers from the ship. Tony was our guide; Tony clearly loves his job and very knowledgeable about his 'Office'. I felt safe at all times. We did 'the squeeze'. If you want to get amoung nature's... More

Adam was our tour guide for the trip and the Squueze. He was very patient, took great photos for us, and was a delight the whole trip. The 360's on the way back were an added bonus. Many thanks to Coila who drove us to and from, and who added a lovely personal touch to our day,

Jetboat pilot Tony gave us real thrill for the money! It was a fast, wave bouncing, curve slamming rocket through a site of beautiful scenery. Tony was very knowledgeable of the local native history and the thermal activity sites that made this a keeper for vacation memories. Tim and Galina

One of the highlights of our three week trip to NZ and Japan. Tony was informative and fun - and the Hamilton spin was a suitable way to end the proceedings. It's all handled really professionally and just good fun. DO IT!
