      Kawarau River Rafting and Jetboat
      The rafting experience was amazing. The views are beautiful and we have a chance to see bungee jumping along the way. There is even a stopover at a cliff for us to do cliff jumping and opportunities to swim. Thanks to our professional guides Jess and Will. It is just a pity that we actually booked on rafting with Jetboat on the day . Due to the heavy rain , Jetboat was cancelled and we got our refund from the Real NZ staff (helpful and friendly).

      Outstanding
      Stunning views and fun times. Highly recommend this experience. Driver was outstanding and the scenery was spectacular. Fun for kids as well and better than paying for a 25minute ride with other companies in the area for your first time. The 360’degree turns were fun and not scary at all. Next time I would like to go on a more adventurous version of this experience.

      Amazing rafting
      This was the third time white water rafting for us and it was the best one we ever done! We were lucky that the day before the rafting was raining and the water level reached the highest point in 2 month. It came out very intense and a few of very challenging rapids. We even got to do the tunnel that was purely relying on water level. Wow it was amazing ! Thank you for giving us a such thrilled experience Team!

      Awesome River Rafting Experience!
      The Shooter River White Water Rafting adventure! Couldn’t speak more highly of our very professional and expert raft leaders, who were very thorough with their instructions, drills and knowledge, all imparted with humour and an obvious love for what they do!

      Be conscious of your passengers comfort.
      I have done previous trips with other companies and much preferred the Dart river excursion in Lake Whatatipu. In hindsite I regret we did not do a jet boat out of Wanaka this time. The Kawarau river scenery was average. The 12 March afternoon trip was marred during our return ride when we encountered a short steep chop head-on as a rain shower passed through. Incredibly hard and jarring ride which the boat operator did little to mitigate. I am a skipper myself and he should have slowed down more and taken the waves at an angle. He was in a comfortable spring-mounted seat so was oblivious to the discomfort of his passengers. Perhaps he was in a rush to get back to the dock.

      White water rafting on Shotover
      Amazing experience with RealNZ, the team were all lovely and helpful. We had an excellent experience and I’d never done it before! No one fell out or flipped on our trip. Kinnan was an excellent guide and made the trip very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area!

      I would rate this a 'must do' in Queenstown.
      We booked this last minute and glad we did. The team was fun, friendly and dedicated to our happiness and safety. The rafting was fun...maybe not quite as exhilarating as we expected...a few fun little drops that they said were class 4 or 5, some paddling, some minor rapids, but it was fun and the scenery down on the river was very beautiful. The color of the water is amazing. In late Feb. we got a little warm in the wetsuits in the hot sun and our guide, Ben, encouraged us to jump in the river to cool off...so glad we did. Ben was a great guide (sorry, Ben, we went to the World bar for silent disco, but didn't see you!). What we didn't expect, and what they don't tell you, is that the 45 minute bus ride is over the coolest, steepest (closed to the public) dirt mountain road over very extreme mountain scenery. Loved it! That alone was worth half the ticket price. Well done! We defintely recommend this trip while in Queenstown. PS...they take photos and email them to you for free!

      Thrilling
      We did the jet boating and rafting combo as a family of 4, 2 of us in our 60s and two in 30s. Jet boating was such a thrill ride from the lake down river to our rafting point. Lots of thrilling spins etc. Rafting was great fun with 3-4 white water stretches and lots of opportunities for swimming, rock jumping and some fun on the boat. For the “oldies” no pressure to do anything we were uncomfortable with, for youngsters you can be as daring as you wish. We all had a great time… exhausted at the end!! The Real NZ team are caring, safety conscious and fun, special mention to Erin who led our boat and was so full of energy and fun while also looking out for us.

      So much fun and adventure!
      This was amazing! We'd previously done white water on a different river in Nz. Had thought it a little dull... However this was not that at all! Benji was our guide. He was ultra professional and had us all working as a team to get through the river. Loads of excitement and laughter had by all. If you like a bit of adrenaline, this is the activity for you!

    We had the most epic time! We had our 4 yo son with us and we didn’t think he would last the 1hr trip (we were right) but it promises some excellent views.
    Our boat driver (I can’t recall his name) was very funny and had a lot of knowledge of the area.
    We have been on the Kawerau Jet in the past and I can hands down say I enjoyed this trip more!

    We’ll definitely be back again.......without child 😂

    Thanks so much team!

    We came to go-orange after a disappointing interaction and a let down with the opposition Kjet ( they were useless). The guys at go orange were awesome, Fran made it easy despite saying initially there were no more runs today ,and made it happen even though there were only 5 of us with an easy negotiation so it was a win - win. The driver Tom was really good, and we were off within 15 mins! Really great team to deal with and a fun jet boat ride despite the weather being cold. Thanks heaps guys you really made the kids day- GOORANGE!!!

    A really fun experience - we felt very well looked after by Matthew (ages ranged from us mid/late 60s to little ones) and he made the experience great for all of us. Some exciting 360 degrees spins and exhilaratingly fast. A little bumpy on my old back but would not have missed this exoerience. Highly recommended. 😊

    We really enjoyed our time on the jet boat. I wish we had enough time to do the full hour we enjoyed it so much. It was a range of ages on the boat and the driver communicated well with everyone and still made the ride fun for all ages. Dress warm as it can be chilly on the water. Would definitely do it again

    Fantastic trip with a great guide/captain, which makes all the difference. The 25minute option was great for young kids, while still providing a bit of thrill. Hold on tight! Having done a few different jet boats in the area this was up there with one of my favourites. Highly recommend.

    Really enjoyed our tour. They were kind enough to squeeze us on to a boat about to leave as we were short of time. The driver was a really likeable young woman (Danni?) and it was a really fun way to see the rivers that kept our year old happy. Expensive but worth it.
