We bought it and NONE of the photos were of us and the 'video' is only 2min 57sec long. Totally disappointed, especially since the package cost about $50! What a rip off. On top of it, the driver lost it at one point and swamped...More

Whilst this did appear to be a very expensive 30 minute trip when I booked it, the pair of us have to say it was tremendous. Absolutely no regrets whatsoever. We laughed, we screamed, we got a little wet :) The photo and video package...More

It was a cool experience but on a higher price level. Short and appropriate introduction followed by a 35min ride on the river from the dam to the Huka Falls.
