EPIC TOUR

Absolutely EPIC tour. Our guides were friendly, knowledgable and adventurous. They made us feel safe out on the rapids, despite the conditions being intense. HIGHLY recommend this tour over any rafting tour experience. Its more active, challenging and thrilling, and you learn more about how to navigate the white water.

We had such an amazing experience with Sam and the rest of the crew! For a couple of first timers, we felt completely safe and supported throughout the paddle and they kept us laughing through the ride. Definitely an adventure you won’t want to miss to see explore one of the most beautiful parts of Rotorua/Okere Falls!
