Had a really good time with my wife during this experience, however we've paid for our pictures after getting to see through them on instructors iPad up front and have been told that he would send them to us through email and still haven't received them? Only downside I guess.

Fantastic half day canyoning!

This trip was just enough to give you an insight into canyoning. We went as a small group and had a great time! It was challenging enough but not overly difficult so we all felt like we had achieved something! Ross was our guide and he made sure I felt safe even though I'm a bit scared of abseiling he made me feel at ease! Thank you!

Thrilling

Ross was our guide who was incredibly funny and experienced. The trip was just enough thrill to push you out of you comfort zone on an otherwise relaxing holiday in Queenstown for locals. Highly recommended if you are looking for something different.
