OMG ... O M G !!!!!!!!! Can't express how much I loved this trip!! This is by far the best way to see Glenorchy, the scenery is magical! Starting from the scenic drive from Queenstown to Glenorchy (which I have driven at least 20 times in the last few months, and I'm still taking pictures there...every single time), the bus... More

Totally amazing - scenic, more than hour long boat ride with full of adrenaline rush, perfect stopping points for photo opportunities. We've spent few hours deciding between shotover jet and DART river wilderness safari. We finally decided to go with DART river wilderness jet and we're extremely happy to make the right decision. These were some our deciding factors, (1)... More

We had traveled with Dart River last year, and tried to organise for our wider family to come on the experience. This included young children, which we were assured would be no problem. We arranged all of our other activities around the Dart River experience, only to finally be told that our youngest child could not travel on the bus... More

Went on the Dart River jet boat this morning. What stunning scenery and a well-run business that allows you to make the most of this area. The guides were also friendly and knowledgeable on all stages of the trip. The trip involved jetboating up the Dart River - a spectacular location and rightfully a heritage protected area. After the jetboat,... More

We had a terrific driver of our jet boat who took us to see some of the most beautiful spots along the Dart River. There were also a few "spins" along the way for some excitement. But the views were everything. It's expensive, but worth the money if the weather is good (we had mostly sunshine).

Walk thru undisturbed native forest was enlightening. Loved the jetboat ride as good as a roller coaster. Needed the heated handrails the day we were there. Guides were all great.

Caught the Coach to Glenorchy from Queenstown. It was a wild day out on the River the day we went. Top marks to Tim for giving us an hour long great experience though. The weather was gloomy, cold and rainy when we went which made the ride quite extreme. On a summers day it would have been even more spectacular.... More
