What a great time we had. Did the 2 hour down the Waikato river. It was so easy that nearly everyone should feel confident to do this. I would highly recommend to all!

“A great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

The kayak experience was very relaxing. The river was very tranquil and the view was great. We were able to stop by the hot pools and experience a natural hot spa. The guide was also very accommodating.
