Excellent

We only had the morning left in Rotorua before we had to get back to Auckland. Best choice! Finished at 11am and we were on the road. Guides were great, perfect amount of respect shown to culture and the dangers of the river. Really pleased we went, thanks Justin! ... & thanks Kituna for showing your power... but not dumping us!!

Awsome Experience

Bought for my grandson and his friends birthday. They thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience with their guide making them feel at ease through out. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Fun experience, bit disappointed with the tone

The actual rafting experience was great, the rapids were exciting and the crew supervising were experienced and it felt very well organised. However the tone was a bit crass and sexist with lots of comments about the women in the front of the raft 'taking a load to the face' a pretty unfunny joke repeated multiple times. I was also a bit queasy about the Maori tradition being co-opted as a tourist 'experience' by what appeared to be non-Maori guides, especially as it was really well and seriously done by a Maori team member at the outset of the trip, and because we were passing through a Maori burial ground, it felt appropriate to treat it seriously, but when we were actually on the river it felt a bit like shouting Maori chants and prayers was just part of the rafting experience and it veered a bit close to cultural appropriation with the meaning stripped out which I wasn't entirely comfortable with in retrospect. It's a shame because the guides were mostly great, enthusiastic and experienced and great at setting you at ease and making the experience enjoyable. It's just that things feeling a little bit sexist and a little bit racist takes the shine off an experience and seems pretty unnecessary as the basic product is so good.
