Just amazing! We went on the jet boat ride in the morning and took to the waves at top speed - a real blast! The highlight for my wife and me, though, was the rafting in the afternoon. The team were just faultless... friendly, informative, safety-conscious and funny. We enjoyed amazing weather, lively rapids and loads of laughs, and the team were fantastic. This combo is a great way to experience the best of the Lake Taupo region's thrills and spills, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Excellent day in Taupo starting with a 2 hour cruise over the lake. This could have been organised a bit better but overall a beautiful cruise. Followed by a helicopter ride over the lake and down to Huka Falls - AMAZING! They did an awesome job with the jet boating, would highly recommend them in the furture!
