Amazing

I would recommend the jet boat so much, it was great the water and the scenery was fantastic. The driver of the boat was called matthew he was friendly funny and told us about the river and the boats. We did 360 turns and speeds upto 95km. Deffo do it if your in the area. The nomad safari was good, went up skippers in a 4x4 and seen some fantastic views and gorilla rock. We drove to arrowtown with off roading in and out the lake. We went gold panning but ran out of time so plan the day a bit better and go earlier. Both great activities.

Great Experience!!! Loved it.

Your morning starts off with an amazing jet boat ride through the shot over river! Our driver got SOOO close the rocks it was definitely worth it!! The 4wd experience was also really good going off road for most the trip and stopping for tea and gold panning! What a great day it was!! Only thing I would say is that if you book this, make sure you got to an info centre and find out where to meet for these activities. We weren't too clear where the 4wd would meet us however they ended up picking us up from the jet boat! 5 stars

OMFG - What an amazing experience.

The combined 4wheell drive and jet boat experience was absolutely amazing; seriously it was like nothing I had experienced before the excitement and the breathtaking views where out of this world. I would only make on recommendation - don't have a big meal before going on the trip, it an amazingly bumpy ride ( things could get messy ð???ð???ð???)
