What an excellent day on the Tongariro river! From the driver Rich (best taste in house music I've come across in Nz) to the epic guide Mitch! He has a great understanding of each rapid, and keenness to give us the best time. Anyone can float some people down a river on a raft, Mitch made it epic. To top it all off, Hotdogs and beers in their cool as base! Looking forward to doing this again sometime in the future!

We had an awesome time rafting the first time with our boys - 8 and 12. Had lots of fun and learned a lot around nature and the river. Our guides were fantastic and great with kids. A total must do if you are around. We will definitely come back for more.
