Did this on our first day in New Zealand. What a great way to start our vacation. Guides and staff were wonderful and everybody had a great time! Parts of the river ran slowly enough to allow us to fall out of the raft for a short while and float along with the river! Highly recommended!
Kawarau River whitewater rafting was upgraded to Shotover, it was indeed unbelievable. Esteban, our guide was superb. I was nervous at first but he made it so enjoyable. Highly recommended.
Best experience in Queenstown - well organised for an exciting day,
Was told that Kawarau River didn't have enough people for the tour so instead they upgraded to Shotover. Amazing experience and highly recommended!
This tour was cancelled and we were placed on the shotover rafting instead. Very happy that they did. Shotover was excellent.
White water rafting was switched to higher rated Skipper Canyon as not enough numbers for the easier rated Kawarau rafting. Safety briefing and training were very good. Would recommend the more difficult option.
Awesome! The river rafting is very good. Highly recommend this, it was our first time and we all truly enjoyed ourselves.
This was absolutely fantastic. Great for beginners and the tour guides were amazingly friendly. Would definitely do again.
A pure adrenalin rush and not just for the young ones! We are middle-aged grandparents and we loved it. In fact we were on such a high that we immediately went and booked the Queenstown Shotover White Water trip!
Using Viator was a hassel free way to book what we wanted to do. White water rafting was fantastic. We had a ball, you have got to give this a go. The staff were great, and although we only did the mild 'K' river it was an excellent way to learn how to master the craft. Well done!
Unfortunately, our trip got cancelled due to flooding of river. But definitely worth doing this on hotover river if you know swimming.
