Very professional, friendly and fun. We really enjoyed the fact that NZ outdoor activities are not so over-the-top with safety restrictions as in Australia.

So much fun, the trip over Skippers pass is a treat in itself, one of the ten most dangerous roads in the world, so glad we were not driving. Th crafting trip was excellent, the experts made it a laugh while still making sure the safety elements were well covered in the briefing. My wife went out of the boat more than anyone else, it was her first experience of white water rafting and she thoroughly enjoyed it!
