Great day out for groups and business incentive travelers. Guides are knowledgeable, fun and know how to make the experience memorable. Our guides Jack 21, Jackie and Tom were amazing. Company is easy to deal with and it was a really fun experience for the group, especially for beginners. 10/10 would recommend!

Had a great time. Very well organised on the logistics and equipment front. High emphasis on safety was excellent. Staff/guides were AWESOME (shoutout Tom Tom). Really knowledgeable, brought a mix of safety, solid instruction, fun & getting a group that didn’t know each other (incl 2 solos) together. He was also really good with one lady in our raft who was less sure of her swimming abilities. Rafts are 5-6 people plus your own guide/instructor. Lots of waiting around as other reviews mentioned - so I did expect this. But it did feel unnecessary to have every group wait for all groups seeing as there were so many, sub-groups of 4 rafts sticking together would’ve worked better in my opinion. Haven’t done rafting before and it was more tame than my expectations. The “high-adrenaline” description doesn’t exactly match. But was a fun time and definitely glad I did it. Would look for a smaller group/more advanced option next time personally - but I’m sure that would add more cost, the value here is great. Awesome time for a family (oldish or youngish fine), mates, couple, or single traveller. Best to read the reviews and know your expectations. Well run & worth it for sure. Do recommend! And to add - the views are INCREDIBLE.
