Great people who are warm and friendly, and take care of the details and add nice touches like making sure the wetsuits are dry and preparing hot soup for after the whitewater rafting trip on a cold, rainy day. Good stuff. Thurston C

Best experience in New Zealand. While we were on holidays there for two weeks, we tried almost everything, from bungy, open sea kayaking, helicopter flights, jet boating, skiing and even prawn fishing. Rafting with the team was by far the best experience we had. They made the day as comfortable as possible. Bringing hot chocolate to have on the rafts while we took a break, driving us to some hot springs afterwards to thaw out, and making us delicious tomato soup with bread for the end of the adventure. Extremely great value for the price and the team provided by far the best experience of our two week trip to NZ. Cheers Brenden E

Highly recommended and fabulous activity for both students and adults. Great value for money and instructors go the 'extra mile' to make the experience enjoyable for all participants. M Maku

Awesome experience with the family float, fantastic team, and something doable for everyone! We had a blast and are definitely coming back again! Thanks for the wonderful day! KJ

Whether you've rafted before or not, this trip down the river will meet and exceed all expectations! Friendly, knowledgeable and approachable team!! Sarah B

Had a great day out Mountain Biking and White water Rafting the guides were great and very helpful and had a lot of knowledge in their area of expertise. Very great day and I would highly recommend this activity/experience. Taylor F

This was a team bonding experience with work mates, including the boss. It sure was team work but a heck of a lot of fun, with the odd scary moment too. Eventually we were eagerly waiting for more rapids to come along so we could bounce around some more. It was very outside my comfort zone but never at any time did we feel unsafe or at risk. Our Guide was Awesome and gave very clear instruction so we knew what we needed to do at all times. I would definitely go again! Eunice H

Have done the Grade 3 and Grade 4 recreational release with Tongariro River Rafting now, and cannot recommend them highly enough. The gear provided is top quality, the team who look after you are absolutely brilliant and the trip itself loads of fun. The lunch they serve back at the base after the trip is also great. We'll be back for sure. John C

We have never tried whitewater rafting before, my wife showed some reluctance initially, but now sees our trip as the highlight of our holiday in NZ. We both had a great time, and were looked after very well. It was raining, but no matter, we shot rapids, had a hot milo in a secluded gorge half way. Wetsuit and warm waterproof clothing was all provided. Now we are both 60+, but we had a great time Thanks to the team. T Rover

Tongariro River Rafting provided an exciting, exhilarating day for all in our raft! The highly capable guides made the day well worth the money and definitely something I would do again and again!! Sarah Jane Smith

Our experience with the team at Tongariro River Rafting was unforgettable. It is one thing to raft a beautiful river, it is quite another to do it in the company of professionals who make every effort to ensure your safety while generating all the thrills you can bargain for. I would advocate a turn with this company if you want to make your trip to Taupo complete. S Subaiah
