Wow! What a GREAT day! Gareth, our very funny, very professional kiwi guide, accompanied by his very diverse and competent team, made this trip extra special. We were treated to awesome Lord of the Rings-type scenery from the time we left Queenstown to when we returned. A 1.5 hour bus ride was followed by a one hour exciting JetBoat ride up the Dart River with spins and thrills dress warmly - it was 43 degrees with a sparkling clear blue sky the morning we left...in the summer early January, followed by a 3-4 hour rubber canoe experience back down the river completed our day. A tasty picnic lunch was provided halfway back on the side of a river bend with a side canoe trip inside a chasm with a waterfall fed with chilly waters from the glaciers. During the entire day we saw a total of 3 other human beings hiking on the side of the river. The scenery was gorgeous beyond belief the river water was clear, crisp and mouth-wateringly delicious. If you can't paddle a canoe, have a problem with paddling a canoe, don't go. Otherwise, don't miss this terrific experience.
One of the best things we did on our trip!
By far the BEST tour of our whole New Zealand trip!!!! A definite MUST!!! The jetboating was so fun and it was just beautiful the whole time!! Then the funyaking was a blast for my husband and I. We were on our own boat and loved it. The views are just breathtaking! Highly highly recommend!!!
Great fun from start to finish. Stunning views and friendly staff added to the experience.
Great trip. The group has changing room with lockers to store things while on the trip. Need to bring a towel to dry off after changing out of wet suits. Crew was great and lunch was good especially out along the river. Again the crew did and excellent job.
It was great experience. We all had a lot of fun and the scenery was spectacular.
The Dart River guys were great and very flexble as the heavy rain had prevented the Funyak part. The Jet Boat was super fun and the scenery was outstanding.
This tour was amazing!
Excellent . Must do.
great tour, breathtaking views! the guide, Luke is great!
