  • We all had a blast on this trip. We felt so well looked after even with a drink and chocolate fish on the family trip. Kids loved the rapids and the challenge to stand up! Photos are great! Hot soup.....  more »
  • The guide, the smooth running of the trip, the knowledge of the local area, the lunch and the unexpected food at the end of the day!  more »
  • Drew our guide was fabulous! Such a nice guy. Highly professional and very experienced. Highly recommend the family float for first timers! Being a big girl I was stressing about not being able to fit into the wet suits! Wasted my time, had a wetsuit for any shape! Such nice people and made me feel so comfortable. Kids loved it so much. If we weren’t leaving town tomorrow we would be back to try stage 3! A+++
  • My friend and I went on the Blue duck river rafting experience, epic experience highlight of our whole trip, experience New Zealand at its best. Rene, Natasha and the team were all lovely! Highly recommend :)
