Such a gorgeous day! Laura was a real gem with great knowledge of the river. We felt very at ease with her as our guide as we cruised happily down the river. Would absolutely recommend to any skill level and ages. Thanks so much guys! :)

Thanks so much for coming with us on the beautiful Waikato River. We'd love to make it a longer trip, but the Huka Falls are just downstream and they get pretty exciting.

A very relaxing drift down the river.Unique view from below of the budgie jumping and towering cliffs. Our guide was very knowledgeable and definitely added to the enjoyment of the trip. We were advised not to bring our cameras and that was a mistake as we didn't get any good

Hi and thanks for taking the time to post your review - it's much appreciated in these uncertain times. I take on board your comments about bringing your own camera/phone, although it was for your own safety and that of your phone. We don't like them being left at the bottom of the river. For the coming season we'll be providing drybags for anyone that wants to take their own gear - hopefully that will prove helpful. Thanks again for coming with us - stay safe.
