As a family of four we had the most awesome boat ride. Lex was brilliant; picked us up from our hotel, took us on the most amazing, scenic and value for money boat ride and spun the boat everytime our 9 year old spun her finger! Lex even lent us woolly hats, had so much information about the area and had heated hand rails in the boat for us to grip tightly in the spins. One of our most memorable moments in Te Anau. Dropped back to our hotel, nothing was too much trouble..

short coach ride to the speedboat - then an amazing journey down the river to lake Manapouri with a few 360's along the way and some Lord of the Rings filming spots. this is middle earth! there was no-one else on the river or the lake, just us in a massive boy-racer for water and the wildlife.
beautiful scenery, great fun.

What an amazing and exhilarating trip we had down the Waiau river with Lex.A brilliant sunny day with wall to wall blue sky.There is no way Lex would swap jobs.From uniquely erosion sculptured high cliffs down to the thick bush to the rivers edge it was a photographers paradise.Abundant bird life ,fish an angler would drool over,and Mt Titiroa with snow caps watching over us.We rehursed our own Lord of the Rings scenes but only faster.The Hamilton Turns never lost any passengers that we were aware of.We were picked up and returned to our motel in the bright yellow bus.Thanks guys for a very memorable day.

Had a fantastic time on the Luxmore Jet. Scenery was fantastic and the guide was really friendly and knowledgable. Also liked the extra info about the filming of Lord of the Rings. Great way to spend our first afternoon in Te Anau. Highly recommended.
