Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Queenstown Triple Challenge (Jet Boat Ride, Helicopter and White Water Rafting). What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
No access via the icy roads in winter made the triple challenge the only option to link the jet boat and rafting trips. Well worth the extra money for the chopper ride though. The jet boat and the rafting staff were very effecient, knowledgable, friendly and often very funny - Jack the rafting guide in particular. Couldn't imagine not having done this trip. Just great fun.
This was a great experience. The Jet Boat ride was a real thriller, the helicopter ride a fun way to get to the rafting (instead of a 40 minutes bus ride) and the rafting a wonderful adventure. The whole tour was very well organized and the flow from one activity to the next was smooth. Highly recommended!
Very fun! I took the helicopter ride and the pilot kept tipping from side to side and doing tricks it was awesome. Jet boating was thrilling, white water rafting is always a blast, the only downside being the smelly wetsuits but it was still great!
What a great day. First the jet boat - what a buzz so close to the canyon walls. Then the helicopter (a bit of a cowboy) but a great way to go then the white water rafting- excellent!
I really appreciate Viator refunding the portion of the excursion that could not be carried out due to high river waters caused by the unusual heavy rains. We could not book for another day as this date was the last day our tour would be in Queenstown. Viator understood the situation and approved a refund. I appreciated Viator's customer friendly attitude. Because of this, I will definitely book future excursions with Viator. Thanks, Viator!
Action packed day and was loads of fun - was my boyfriend's first time white water rafting and he was smiling the whole time! Highly recommend the helicopter ride to the drop in point for rafting! I hired a head cam for rafting which turned out some terrific footage of our time rafting the river! Another unforgettable day which we thoroughly enjoyed!
I thought the trip was fantastic. Jet boating the Shotover is a must, and the white water rafting was terrific. I had been on a better helicopter ride previously, but it made sense to do the whole thing as a package.
The whole experience was great. Every second was thrilling!
The Triple challenge was great; all activities were fun and the guides looked after us well!
Very experienced and friendly guides. Both the trip and the guides were exciting, funny and knowledgeable.
We had the best fun. The white water rafting was absolutely the best. Everything about the triple challenge was well worth every cent.
Excellent value for money, very organised, amazing views from the helicopter. A full 6 hours of full on fun!!!! Definitely a must do!
I was scared and refused to go on the rafting and the helicopter ride, but everyone at the triple challenge were great. Our rafting leaders were excellent and I had the time of my life. I think I want to take up rafting as a hobbie now!
Really good adventure. First the Jet-Boat which was thrilling, followed by a great little Helicopter Flight and finally, the White Water Rafting, which considering the waters were so low, was a brilliant way to round off a superb day. Thanks
Great time! Really funny guides that make the adventure that much better. Go with as many people as you can
Whitewater rafting definitely the best part of this challenge, shotover jet and helicopter flight were fun too, heli flight could be a bit longer.
Unfortunately the helicopter portion was canceled but the Shotover Jet and rafting experiences were both fun!
Very interesting. Much more funny jet boat and rafting than helicopter trip.
Jet boat ride last about 30 mins, was exciting travelling at high speeds and doing 360 degree spins! The experienced driver takes you very close to the rock formations which adds an element of danger. Helicopter ride is great if you've never been in one, otherwise the the sights from above are ordinary. White water rafting was disappointing. The class 3-5 rapids are an overstatement and most of the time you are paddling on still waters.
This was the best day my husband and I have had for a long time. We come out feeling totally invigorated. The whole day was brilliant, and most of all we were very impressed with how safety was the big issue. Well organised and very professional...well done! Well worth the money...would do it again in a heartbeat.
