Simply Amazing.

아주 좋았습니다. 처음에는 와이프가 왜 이렇게 비싼 걸 예약했냐며, 유사 다른 업체들 꺼 (KJET, GoldFiled) 싸게 예약하지 그랬냐고 구박하더니, 한 번 타고 난 다음, 너무 잘 했다며 태도가 180도 돌변하였습니다. 10살, 7살 아이들의 만족도 또한 최고였습니다. 실제 배를 탈 때의 즐거움 및 무서움은 맨 뒷 자리가 좋은 것 같으며, 한 가지 단점은 비디오 촬영에서 위치상 소외가 되어 잘 안 보입니다. 저희는 일단 재미있게 타는 게 주 목적이었기 때문에 맨 뒤에 4명의 가족이 탔고, 비디오 또한 구매하였습니다. 처음부터 비디오가 촬영될 것 알았더라면, 더 열심히 포즈를 취할 걸 그랬나봐요. 배가 처음 떠나는 순간부터 비디오 카메라는 돌아갑니다.

Whole experience was worth $150

Thought maybe $150 for a 20/30 ride in a boat full of tourists maybe a little steep but ended up being worth every penny. Driver was awesome (Tim I think) , bouncing down the river was unreal. Definitely recommend. A well organised activity to do whilst in Queenstown. Have been advised by multiple people that the Shotover jet is the best one to do over the competitors
