I absolutely would recommend this trip. They pick you uo, give you the gear, nice changing rooms, safety instructions and off you go. Serving hot choclate and candy on the river, beer and a hot dog when you go back. Hot shower and a lot of fun is included in the package. Great job guys!

Before this, Mitch and I had never been whitewater rafting execpt in a man-made river in Penrith, Sydney. Rafting down the Tongariro River was by far more exciting and thrilling. Our guide Shannon was awesome and made the trip that much more adventurous. The staff at the reception were awesome and made the atmosphere very relaxing and laid back. Great price for the amount of time on the water. The walk up the stream and jump off the hidden Puketarata waterfall was truly beautiful. We only did the grade 3+ raft but would love to do the grade 5 when we come back. I would definitely recommend it.

i am writing this review on behalf of my son jack who recently joined your crew for an experience he wont forget in a hurry. from start to finish i have to say the service and friendliness was exceptional. I was a very nervous mum waiting in the coffee shop whilst my son had the experience he was hanging out for, i think it went beyond what he had imagined too. thanks so much gang, what a great memory xx
