Fantastic experience

This was the highlight of our trip to Queenstown. The hair raising 360 degree turns in the Jet Boat were great fun!! Absolutely loved the rafting. The guides were very professional but made the experience so much fun. This is a must do for all ages!!

Good fun!!

Great experience! The staff is super kind, helpful and trained for any scenario. Jetboat was fun, rafting even more! Beside we flipped the raft in a gnarly spot and way the guide was quick to react to get everyone as safe as he could and afterwards all the staff wanted to make sure we were ok! So even in case of unexpected "accident" I recommend it! I mean anything can go wrong at any time so indeed I cannot blame them!

great value for a great dicounted price

booked the double trouble deal through bookme.com. coincidentally it was on my birthday aswell. jetboatong was great fun but unfortunately wouldn't book it as a singular activity for that price. however, as it was a double deal with rafting, it was money worth spent. our rafting guides were super fun and you could see they enjoy doing their job. rafting a grade 4 out of 5 current surely wasnt a walk in the park but well worth it and so much fun. thanks to the go orange team for a memorable birthday experience.
