Drew our guide was fabulous! Such a nice guy. Highly professional and very experienced. Highly recommend the family float for first timers! Being a big girl I was stressing about not being able to fit into the wet suits! Wasted my time, had a wetsuit for any shape! Such nice people and made me feel so comfortable. Kids loved it so much. If we weren’t leaving town tomorrow we would be back to try stage 3! A+++
My friend and I went on the Blue duck river rafting experience, epic experience highlight of our whole trip, experience New Zealand at its best. Rene, Natasha and the team were all lovely! Highly recommend :)
