Be ready to be amazed by Skippers Canyon magnificent views. I'd say that this tour is a great deal, as it will take you to the top of skippers canyon then travel down for your jet boat. Rob our 4WD guide is very cool he too is still amazed by the beauty of this place as we slowly drive down to a winter wonderland road. He drives carefully so you know you are in good hands. Quinn our jet boat driver is one of the best, he will give you some exciting 360 spin and stop by at some places where they shoot LOTR, Mission Impossible and the old Bungee Jumping bridge as well as give some history of the Skippers Canyon. To sum up, booking this tour and choosing Canyon Skippers Jet is definitely worth it and it is guaranteed that you will have fun and be ready to be amazed by the beauty of the nature.
