The rafting was very fun, the scenery was beautiful, The post rafting lunch was a full BBQ complete with beer. But what really stood out were our guides Justice and Eliot. They were both extremely professional, energetic, enthusiastic and above all wanted to... More

We were four over 60's attempting the white water rafting from Rapid 11. I would advise anyone in this age category to be very fit to attempt this. There is a very steep and slippery descent into the gorge. Unfortunately I slipped nearly at the bottom and damaged my ankle with two small hairline fractures. I hobbled to the raft... More

We both had a great time, the food was amazing. The trek down and up was very good exercise. I would suggest that adequate foot wear be worn when booking as we both wore flip flops which didn't really do the job.
