Great rafting experience

There is an amazing professional crew working at Go. Loved the river and rge way the crew applied safety. Excellent. Only pity there was no photo opportunity and none were taken. Still loved it though.

Adrenaline pumping ride

A total 14kms rafting which went through a few different levels rapids. The coach, Alex, is a great tour guide as well, telling a lot of histories about Queenstown, the river and the mining. "Tunnel" and "Cascade" are the most exciting part of the whole trip!

Great fun

Rafting with these guys is real blast, the guides have a fantastic knowledge of the river and make the trip a lot of fun. My only disappointment was I could not use my Gopro’s To record my experience and there was no video’s or photo’s from them for us to show friends and family the fun we had. I would do it again in a heart beat.

Full of fun

Its full of fun..not scary at all...not scary because guides give you enough instruction and manage things wonderfully for full safety. No one fell out of the boat..following the guide’s instant instructions was the key..Had a really nice fun time. saw so many waterfalls. guide jake ( he is from Canada) kept us entertained well with his humours 😅
