We started with the helicopter ride to the rafting spot on a clear, crisp morning. The ride was short, but the views were stunning!
My wife does not swim well and the guides did an excellent job of covering all the safety aspects. Our guide, Chief, did a great job of ensuring my wife did not end up in the river even when it got rough!
The jet boat ride was the highlight though. It was even better experiencing it on the river with some tight clearances. The driver, Tim, really knew his stuff - the 360s at full speed just have to be experienced! It was just an awesome day.
Superb, We just enjoyed the rafting. It was pretty cold but we still had great fun specially during the rapids.
the jet boat and white water rafting were totally awesome, I would highly recommend these vendors and guides. The helicopter ride was a disappointment as there was no narrative and a quick ride to the drop off point for the raft ride. We were dropped off and then had to wait for the bus with the rest of the group and the rafts to arrive. There was the expectation that the heli ride would be as long as the bus ride but with some narrative and a thorough view of the valley and landscape, but it was a less than 5 minute ride straight to the raft departure site! Then wait for the rest of the group to arrive that rode the bus!

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.

We had the best fun. The white water rafting was absolutely the best. Everything about the triple challenge was well worth every cent.

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!
The trip was great! We weren't able to do the Helicopter since there were not enough people. The guides informed us that we would be refunded for the Heli portion of the trip. Other than that, the tour was amazing!
Entertaining, but not the adrenaline rush we expected. The river was low at the time we visited so the rapids during the white water rafting were quite tame. Was pleasantly surprised by how much time we actually spent rafting, about a couple of hours. Be aware, helicopter ride is only five minutes. Jet boat ride was fun.
Chief was awesome- great humor if you have the same as him :
Staff was friendly, helpful if you asked any questions, had a good time. :
