Finally managed to make it to RAFTING NZ after being teased by all my friends for not facing my fears. Still a 'nervous nelly' until I made it onto the Raft with Rachel. Rich had built up my expectations on our trip from Taupo but stayed close by as we prepared for the trip. Once there on the water it was all go and the best experience of my life unfolded. The international company of other visitors, Rachel's confidence in setting us off and Rich's departure wave set it all up. The scenery, water and laughs were special till the very end where we returned to HQ and shared a snack and beer with all the guests was lovely. Great pics of our adventure despite Rich's downplaying of his contribution then a fun trip back to our Motel in Taupo. Every single staff member cared for us and we will be back to thank Luke someday in person...he has a wonderful business and concept in his hands. My wife is still smiling at Rich's full service care and cheekiness on our journey to and fro. Take this to the world Rafting NZ.

Thank daics35
