5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2010

Absolutely fantastic!!! Loved it!! However, we were changed to the Grade 5 Kaituna river because the water level was too low on the trip we booked...I suggest booking the Kaituna river with the 21ft waterfall - you will not regret it!!

This was the best! That river can move! We were very disappointed in our lunch. How can you serve juice to paying customers when it has expired?

Fantastic. Guides were wonderful. Best weather we had the entire trip. The rapids were thrilling. Highly recommend this adventure.

4 star rating: Recommended January 2010

The staff were great, but the rafting itself was not what I expected as was the difficultly! There were 2 rapids I would class a 3 but not class 4's. If you want adventure I would go to the class 5 tour!
