Where to start!? I have been on a few tours in QT and this was by far my favourite. After convincing my boyfriend (who is not a fan of heights or small spaces) we booked onto the half day tour to ease ourselves in. We were met by our guides Ross and Elsa who straight away came across as the most friendliest people ever! Laughing with us and getting to know us which gave us both the confidence that the day was going to be good fun.
Not long into the tour we soon realised an actor from Harry Potter was on our tour which made me think wow if a famous person is picking this tour to do in his few days here then we were in for a great day as they would of done there research on the best places in town. We were definitely not disappointed!!! :)
The weather was not the warmest but we were reassured we would be warm in our clothing and wetsuits that we're provided and they were not wrong there! I was so toasty in the wetsuits and clothing provided which helped massively as the last thing you want is to be walking around the canyons freezing cold.
Once we started going the adrenaline started pumping what better then to spend your morning climbing through canyons sliding down waterfalls and abseiling down waterfalls!? Not once did I feel unsafe the guides were amazing and explaining every step making us feel very confident and comfortable in what we were doing. Every activity was exciting and gave us an awesome thrill. The banter was endless and the day was just awesome! It was an experience that won't be forgotten!
And my partner that hates heights and activities like this loved it!
Thanks guys for an awesome day :)

Hey Katrice,

Thanks for your review, you really spent some time explaining your experience with us, so thank you!

It was awesome having a bit of fame on the tour, i definitely heard about it when the guides got back, super star struck!

I love how your adrenaline warmed you up, plus we only used the best canyoning specific equipment for our customers, so i'm glad you felt the benefits!

Cheers, Julz

Had an awesome time on the half day canyon adventure! It was full of abseiling and sliding down natural rock slides. Anyone who is looking for a fun filled day that is packed with excitement, adventure and a few challenges should definitely check them out. Plus the guides offer some pretty good laughs and keep the day relaxed and stress free!

Was looking forward to this since arriving and was not let down. Easily one of the best things to do for anyone who loves being outdoors to see new zealand and get stuck in. Our guides Ross and Hugh were amazing at what they do and a great laugh. Abseiling waterfalls and going down a natural water slide was the highlight of the day, what more do you wanna do. Recommend to everyone who wants to challenge themselves but have a great time doing it!

Our half day tour took place on a cold morning in Queenstown, but nobody really cared along the way. We got to really challenge ourselves and test our limits as opposed to be "nanny-ied" all along the way. We felt the rush and the adrenaline without ever being in danger and had to think on our own how to manage obstacles. This tour was SPOT ON! Serious fun! Thanks for all Rob, your rock!

Me and my boyfriend decided to go canyoning instead of doing a bungee jump and I'm so glad we did! We had so much fun, great group of people, awesome lunch after and Jules and the others who run it are great!! We had so much fun and were so glad we'd chosen an activity that lasted the day!
