Ten out of ten This is a seriously slick operation! Our whole family ranging in age from 10 to 70 went rafting on Saturday and LOVED every moment. Gorgeous scenery, heaps of fun rapids, professional fun guides and awesome touches with the hot chocolate and choccy fish on the river and the beer and hot dog to finish. We couldn’t recommend Rafting New Zealand highly enough! We’ll be back and will tell everyone we know to come too. Thanks so much guys for making this a memorable celebration
Fab Family Fun Four family rafts with a bunch of teenage cousins had the absolutely best time - spectacular scenery, great weather, awesome experience - real value for money and awesome guides - we would highly recommend anyone that doesn't mind a bit of very cold water to go do this with a bunch of family or friends - we were buzzing - thanks heaps Rafting NZ - you guys are awesome!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!! Places like this deserve a 6 star rating for going the extra mile! After doing Tongariro we were looking for something fun to do the next day before we head back home, and we were definitely not disappointed! The rapids were exciting and the scenery was amazing and it required just the right amount of work to loosen our stiff bodies. Thanks to all at Rafting New Zealand for making it one of the most fun days we've had in a long time! A special thanks to our guide Wetti(apologies if I am not spelling that correctly) who entertained us with his stories and jokes and took care of us on our adventure and made sure to make the trip a memorable one!
Fun rapids First time doing white water rafting and we enjoyed the grade 3 rapids as a family. Our guide (Jess/Jessie) was awesome. The hot chocolate and sausages were also a bonus.
Family rafting trip Great team really enjoyed had a great day with a very good guide who gave us a great ride and was very informative
Super-enjoyable We had a great first ever rapids rafting experience. Luke is the boss! Looked after us from start to finish. We did the grade 2 course about 8km and 20 rapids. It was perfect from start to finish. The centre is very well laid out with great changing facilities and a super cafe/shop. Our 6 yr old enjoyed it so much she can’t wait to come back. Highlights included getting only a bit wet, not falling out (always listen to the coach, Luke in our case), and plenty of native birds and some geology! Would definitely recommend. We will return for the grade 3!
Great rafting Fantastic day on the Tongariro River. We had 5 rafts with five great guides! Great location. Super professional and very friendly. Definitely recommend the trip!!! Do it and have a great time.
White water rafting Great trip down the Tongariro river. Excellent guide. Thanks Ritai. The gear was good and the crew were relaxed and professional.
Fantastic fun, a great day out Had a wonderful time lead by Jess. Our all girl crew conquered the rapids, and a few of us cliff jumped. The scenery was spectacular and what Jess doesnt know isnt worth worrying about. A great day out on a pristine river.
Great day out on the river in Turangi Fantastic trip, they looked after our friend who was worried about not being able to swim, and we all had a great day.
