Awesome Afternoon!

The team at Kaitiaki were awesome! Our guides Ben & Hemi were on point! A real fun activity which we as a family will talk about for a long time to come. Great service, great banter & great afternoon.

Kia Ora Ian! Thanks a lot for your epic review! We're stoked that you enjoyed your experience and that we could contribute to the family memoirs in some way! Our guides love it when kiwi families come along, because the banter is received MUCH better! Definitely join us again when you're next back in Rotorua! Ngā mihi, Kaitiaki Adventures

Awesome people!

The Kaitiaki staff were so lovely and welcoming! They made what was already going to be an amazing experience, even better. I would highly recommend booking through Kaitiaki if you are thinking of doing white water rafting. Was an amazing day!

Kia Ora Alanah! Thanks for the sweeeeet review! We're all about that Manaakitanga (hospitality) here at Kaitiaki, so to hear that was something you took from your time with us is assurance that we're living up to our values! Definitely come and visit again when you're next in Rotorua! Perhaps you can try our White Water Sledging next time? Ngā mihi, Kaitiaki Adventures

Amazing experience with awesome people

My girlfriend and I booked our Kaituna rafting trip quite spontaneously on the day prior and we do not regret it at all! The crew of Kaitiaki was very nice and made us feel very safe while on the river - while also making sure that we enjoyed all of it! It was our first rafting trip, so we can't really compare, but the river offered a variety of rapids and waterfalls that we went over hence I would say that it was one of the more exciting ones. We can definitely recommend it to everyone who is seeking a thrill and a good time :-)

Kia Ora Fabian! Thanks a lot for your amazing review! We're amazed that you chose us for your first time white water rafting experience and hope we set a pretty high standard to be compared to! Be sure to let your friends and family in Austria know about us when they come to Rotorua, New Zealand! Ngā mihi, Kaitiaki Adventures

Kia Ora Joselynn! Thank you so much for your 5-star review! We're super stoked to hear that your sister enjoyed her first time white water rafting with us! What better way to celebrate a birthday, than with a white water raft experience?! We're sure she would've received the best seat on the raft that day and photos to look back on for many years to come! Ngā mihi, Kaitiaki Adventures
