Highly recommend this activity. Don't go if you want to stay dry, go if you want a fun time and an exhilarating ride. Jeremy was a great captain we loved the boat trip.

The White Water Rafting was the highlight of our time in NZ. The staff were rpfantastic, professional and fun. Everything was supplied we were safe and had an exciting trip. Then something to eat just topped it off. We will do this trip again when we return to NZ.

Amazing experience, would definitely recommend to anyone.
We did the rafting at the end of May, and even though it was cold we were fine. We had wet suits and thermals and I didn't jump into the water so I was dry. Plus the exercise itself keeps you warm. They also provided us with hot chocolate midway through the trip - so lovely to drift along the river and sip hot chocolate. We were also taken to a hot pool afterwards and were provided with soup when we returned to base. So don't get put off by cold weather - the river itself apparently doesn't vary much in temperature throughout the year! Great for beginners and kids, and even my partner whose done rafting before had a great time!

This was a fantastic way to spend an afternoon in Taupo. The jet boat was a lot of fun. We did get soaking wet but that was the best bit. In fact we loved it so much we went a second time! I would recommend going in Summer rather than Winter as the water is icy cold.

A great way to get your action kicks in the adventure capital of Taupo! We did the Jet Boat Whitewater Rafting combo and both were so much fun by themselves and even better together! Be prepared to get wet!

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.

The tour was great, however by booking this combo through Viator, you are not booked into all activities!! We were disappointed when we arrived at our whitewater rafting to discover they did not have a booking for us! The Tongariro River Rafting staff were absolutely amazing!! We had a great time!

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!
