Unbelievable experience with steep narrow winding road and views are absolutely stunning. Thrilling experience which was one of our best tour in New Zealand. We booked two trips in one, Skippers Canyon with thrilling jet boat ride. The jet boat ride was the best and the tour was unforgettable. Not to be missed.

This tour was the highlight of my New Zealand holiday. The scenery was incredible inspiring. Our tour guide was friendly, full of information which he shared in an interesting way. the drive is not for the fainthearted though as the dirt road is narrow with an incredible cliff on one side and sheer drop into the canyon the other. Nonetheless it was well worth every minute.
