Must do!

This was such an awesome experience that I will definitely do next time I'm in Queenstown. They had an awesome deal going at the time which meant kids were free! So I definitely want to take my son next time. The view are beautiful and the driver was awesome. We felt safe and had no issues. If you go, TAKE GLOVES, SUNNIES & A SCARF TO COVER YOUR FACE. Highly recommend.

Brilliant

Our driver was safety focused but showed us a good time on the water! Recently recovering from a broken ankle but he helped me into the boat and made me feel secure. Choice views of the area you can't get anywhere else. Too bad we had a few people that didn't listen to the driver, and a translator for their group that was so loud we didn't hear much of the tour. Not GO Orange's fault though, keep up the great work guys!

Great start to our holiday!

Such a great way to see Queenstown and surrounds! Loved the 360 turns and skidding by nearby trees. Wish there were more tricks!

sehr enttäuschend!

We expected a fun and amazing ride. Instead we had a lot of stops for people to stand up and take photos... naturally the river was extremely beautiful, but we didn't book the jet boat to only enjoy the view :( !
