    Whole experience worth the expense. All equipment provided beyond what is mentioned in the description.
    Both activities a lot of fun. Quads great, only realised at the last minute that the 15 year old couldn’t ride solo, so used a buggy instead.
    Guides were great and adjusted the experience to who was in the boat.
    Jet boat ride home was an added bonus that we all enjoyed!

    Peter and Pablo were amazing guides, enduring four rambunctious women for 2 1/2 hours and taking us on an amazing adventure through frozen creeks, mud puddles and up and down rocky terrain. Thank you for a completely awesome, totally ‘autumn” day. 100% recommend to anyone of any age, any size and any ability.

    Well, what can I say....
    This is a must do.
    Friendly staff.
    Wet rainy day.
    Darryl thank you for the fun. Enjoyed it!!
    Around 1 hour down and up the river.
    Neeta Thank you for the warm coffee and biscuits while we waited for the quad bikes.
    Short downhill to the river after life jacket fit.
    The 360 turn is the thing to do in a jet boat.
    Thank you team for your friendliness.

    Just a lovely time, with Darryl the Legend. He's kind and calm and a great guy to have at the helm. We enjoyed plenty of excitement at the Paddle Point rapid, sandwiched in between calm and beautiful scenery.
    Getting close to the waterfall (& resident bellbird) was a real bonus, and finishing with a jetboat ride back adds a little more magic to an already outstanding experience.

    Ross was an amazing tour guide!!!
    We just turned up not long before the tour was about to start, it was absolutely no drama to add us to the tour group
    Professional with the typical kiwi humour thrown in, felt safe the entire time and had an amazing time with the family
    Highly recommend ⭐️

    This was a private tour--just my husband and I--in a very nice car for a drive north of Christchurch to visit three wineries, on to Hanmer Springs town for lunch and then on to the hot spring pools. Lunch was fantastic at the Rustic Café (beautiful tapas!!) and a PRIVATE hot springs pool was reserved for us to use for 30 min. After that we had a couple hours to relax in all the other pools. On our drive home our driver was attentive to our wishes to stop and drone and take pictures of some sheep. He also had local snacks in the back pockets of the seats in front of us to try along with bottled water. It was a fantastic day and we really enjoyed having the private tour!

    The staff were just absolutely brilliant as my now husband & I eloped & got married on the bridge & then did a tandem bungy jump - the staff couldn’t have looked after us better on our special day. A MASSIVE thanks to all of them involved - xoxo

    The highlight of our trip to Hanmer. Couldn't recommend it more.
    Great for both the cautious and the confident.
    There was water. There was mud. There was speed. There were laughs. There was Darryl, who not only looked out for us but taught us stuff too (& laughed at our bad jokes, made a few of his own, & rescued us when we got bogged!).
    Not only loads of fun but really interesting to get into the hinterland and see a bit of the area you can't get to any other way.
    We thought it would just be a short drive around but it's long and varied and fascinating, and excellent value for money.
    We combined it with claybird shooting and had an outstanding day. (A hint to the unwary - don't wear a cream jacket unless you want to look like a dalmatian).

    Our day began with a prompt pick up at our hotel. The van was comfortable and we had a pleasant and informative chat with our driver en route to our first stop. Our hosts at each winery were welcoming and personable. We found wines at each stop that were quite nice. The additional discount for purchases made on the tour were appreciated.

    Lunch was tasty and well timed. Nothing was rushed. I had a vegetarian lunch platter that was very nice.

    If you love water, you will love this. A great range of water options including private pools and therapeutic pools. Wonderful location, great staff, thermal spring water which is not too sulphurous. Must do if you are in the area. All ages and ranges.
