We had an amazing North Island holiday with our 13 and 14 year olds, including mountain biking, kayaking, zip lining and jet boating - however we all agreed that this was the absolute highlight of our whole trip. A relaxed and super friendly operation from the booking process all the way through. Our guide was Tom and he was fantastic.... More

We did the Okere Awa trip, involving a bush walk and half of the white water rafting. Both experiences were amazing and we appreciated the local knowledge of our guide Roy and the expertise of Jesper for the paddle down. Would recommend both, and will come back again if we return.

Fantastic afternoon!!! We did the white-water rafting for our 1st time a week ago & it was incredible! The staff were fantastic & so much fun. The whole trip was well-organised. The rapids were freaky but awesome! We loved the whole experience! The 7 metre water fall came up awfully fast, and was so much fun....can't say enough about how... More

Once you sign your life away, you get a wetsuit, booties, life jacket and a helmet before entering the river. Staff were friendly and built the excitement process. Before getting in the water, you get assigned to groups of 6 and then meet your guide. We had Jaime and he was excellent, making the day extremely enjoyable. We did the... More

Obviously these guys are doing a good job, the briefings where quick and simple. Groups of 6 meant that you had the guides attention when needed and received a personal service. The ride was fun and not scary but still provides some adrenaline. I recommend the trip. Only downside is that pictures are charged at a high price so best... More

Great morning. Great fun had by all. Don't be scared by 7m waterfall-my wife even said it was okay. Only on the water for an hour but not much idle time. Price is really good compared to other places we have been -probably because not in water for that long. Easy to get to. Not a massive walk to get... More

As a family of four we rafted for the first time and it couldn't have been better. We loved it. Our guide Toni was wonderful - informative, supportive and reassuring. She gave plenty of options for the more or less adventurous of us. Some of us were very nervous and she handled it perfectly. The river itself is incredible. The... More

Treated my daughter and myself to an adventure for my birthday. Great fun on the water although the water fall was fairly hairy. Our raft had a bit of a can out but Raft instructor Ryan was brilliant and all the raft instructors were very caring and instructive. Added to the experience
