We are a family with 3 children aged 14, 12 and 10, and despite some of the children being a bit nervous before we left, we all had a fantastic day of rafting on the grade 3 trip. Our guide, John was exceptional at putting the kids at ease, teaching us the basics and guiding us through the rapids. He was also very knowledgeable about the local environment. The scenery was great and so were the side activities including cliff jumping, exploring a cave, and swimming in the rapids. This was a great day and a must do for anyone in the Hawkes Bay or Taupo area, even if you are not thrill seekers. We also thought it was great value for money.

We went as a large family group ranging in age from 11 to 72 (19 total) and it was an incredible experience for all. The staff was fabulous. Just incredibly personal and professional. The tour was extremely memorable. A highlight of an extremely memorable "once in a lifetime" style trip. Recommend it to any and all.

We enjoyed our experience enormously. Beautiful views and perfect weather. Our two young children were thrilled to swim in the river whenever possible. Our guide John obviously very good at what he does, showed amazing patience and enthusiasm with the children. Thank you.
