Ummm Jet Boating... is that something that would really get our adrenaline flowing... especially after all the places we have seen and done so far in New Zealand? You bet!... We had a wonderful 5 hours screaming down the Waiotapu river doing donuts and taking in some breathtaking scenery. Stopping to do "The Squeeze" which gets you off the boat... More

I was looking forward to The Ultimate Squeeze adventure and I was NOT disappointed. Adam was on time to pick me up at the hotel. He is super friendly and eager to share his knowledge and passion about his city and his job. A special detail was the comradery Adam had towards Jeremy. That really reinforced that this was going...

This was everyone in my family's favorite part of our vacation to New Zealand. It was the perfect mix of adventure, gorgeous views, and even learning about the Maori culture. Jeremy was an incredible tour guide--give that guy a raise.

What a beautiful day with New Zealand Riverjet! It's a full, and awesome, Kiwi experience thanks to their great staff and the gorgeous places you see during the day!! I did the Ultimate Squeeze, which includes transport from and to Taupo. Your experience starts from the pick-up, with a warm welcome, stopping on the way in some very nice places... More

I won't ruin the surprise about the "Squeeze" too much, but suffice to say it is a truly hidden treasure, and I don't know how the first person found it, but I'm glad they did. Jeremy was our guide and despite the friendly NZ vs Aus banter, we had a great time. He was very knowledgable about the local river... More

I got on board with my son and *TONY* piloted the jet boat. He is just an awesome driver, knows the performance curve of that like nothing on this earth.. knows every log and branch of the river giving a thrilling experience! You think "oh cr@p he going to hit the bank!!" but of course never did! Funny how he... More

An absolute must do in the area! A brilliant tour of the river, The Squeeze, a dip under the waterfall and a soak in a hot spring. Jeremy was hilarious and so full of knowledge and great stories! Well worth the price, an unforgettable way to spend a couple of hours! Thanks so much to Jeremy and the rest of... More

10/10 experience - would definitely do it again. Jeremy was a legend, so informative and ton of fun! Certainly would recommend to anyone wanting something high paced, yet beautiful with the Squeeze and Hot Springs.
