Family Float Tongoriro Rivet

What a fabulous family day out! Our host Jess and guide Jesse at NZ Rafting were warm, friendly and engaging. They provided a terrific afternoon on the river. Our kids 12 and 9, loved their experience. Going back next year! Can't wait 

Fantastic Family Fun

We booked the family float as the kids and I had never rafted before, and I am so impressed with these guys. All the staff were so welcoming and professional from the moment we walked in the door until we left with happy memories (and the photos to prove it). Bonuses we didn't expect were a visit to the trout farm (where we had a hot chocky) and then a hot dog when we returned to the shop. Highly recommended, and if I'm ever in the area again I'll book in for a 'braver' trip with them for sure.
