I did this trip back in January 2020 as an introduction to rafting and went back this time with my girlfriend for seconds.
It’s not particularly challenging, but still one of the best things to do in Queenstown. You get both the jet boat and a raft through the valley of lord of the rings.
The crew is very experienced and prepares you for everything as there is still room for error here. Gabby and KC, the owners were in charge of us and they did tell us all about how hard COVID had hit them. I’m happy they were still around and give us this experience

We saw a locals deal for the whitewater rafting and jet boat and couldn't say no to the price but to be honest I'd pay full price for this activity any time!

The experience from start to finish was amazing, our guides were knowledgeable and fun while still ensuring we were safe and well looked after! The Kawarau river itself is stunning and the part where we got to get out and float down the river was so much fun. We also got to try cliff diving, honestly the whole experience was so varied and kept our whole group entertained.

A HUGE thank you to our guide, Tusk, who made us laugh and feel welcome straight away. All staff we met were excellent though.

If you're in Queenstown and want a thrill, I couldn't recommend this more!

Was basically a 1 hour scenic boat ride with a couple spins here and there. It was very underwhelming and was expecting more of a thrill. Was expecting to get wet but only got a few sprays. Not really worth the money.
The driver was very friendly though and provided great service.

Best part of my whole trip to QT! So good that we did the 25 minute one & then booked the 60 minute one immediately after. Josh was an excellent driver!!

Canceled out ride but didn’t bother to call or let us know before we showed up for the arrival time. Some prior knowledge would’ve been nice so we could plan something different for the afternoon. Bit of a let down.
