We experienced an adrenaline rush for the whole hour!! Exceptional service provided by the team of Go orange especially the driver!! Looking for a quick way to learn about the scenery of Queenstown? CHECK THESE GUYS OUT!!! I highly recommend this place!! I think it’s round 2 for me tomorrow...

P.s: I 100% recommend checking out Bookme if your looking for good deals too.

We (husband and I) went on 1 hour Kawarau trip - would thoroughly recommend it! Real value for money (check out BookMe). From the time we were welcomed into the boat by Tom (our driver), the whole trip was great - the weaving, the spins, even the choppy bits out on the lake....it was good to go further down the river (than other operators) and see some sights. Good opportunities to take photos - when we stopped a few times.
Best bit: getting wet during the Hamilton Spins - you do!
Worst bit : the end of the ride.
Great work Tom - not bad for your first time ;-)

Great way to get some thrills while taking in the views of Queenstown from Lake Wakatipu. If you're a hardcore adrenaline junky then you'll probably expect more, but it was perfect for our group that included nana and kids. Got in plenty of 360's and some serious speed up the Kawarau river. Also enjoyed the banter and commentary from the driver Tom.

Lessshgooo, what's ride!! The driver was fantastic! An awesome adrenaline ride, would definitely recommend the 1hour long trip, lots of fun and lots of water. The beautiful scenery topped with the powerful twin v8 engines are a match made in heaven, highly recommend A+++
