I bought this experience for my husbands Christmas present, however I HATE heights. Koryn was so lovely and patient, I got through the whole thing with his help. Great experience for people wanting to do something extreme in NZ that isn't bungy jumping.

I can't speak highly enough of this company. We organised to go canyoning after another activity was cancelled and Koryn was incredibly helpful with this last minute booking. Canyoning is so much fun and the guys will cater for all levels of experience and confidence....More
