Rotorua Rafting

We saved about 10% by using BookMe. Our rafting trip reservation had to be rescheduled to the day before due to increasing water levels, and the staff was very flexible in the options they offered. The trip itself was very exciting! Our guide, Jack, was a great teacher, and gave us opportunities to try something new at each rapid. I felt safe the entire time - even when we went down the 7 miter waterfall! The water was warm but they gave us wetsuits anyway. I absolutely recommend booking with Rotorua Rafting!

Rotarua rafting

Very rushed experience although we were 10 minutes late . No safety briefing , no trial getting in and out of raft , felt very commercial and pushing for the next group. We went with Kaituna Cascades rafting last year and it was much more friendly relaxed and enjoyable

Kia Ora Elaine, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We apologise that your experience with us didn't meet your expectations, and we appreciate the opportunity to address your concerns. We understand that the summer months bring increased demand for our rafting tours, and we strive to accommodate all participants to allow everyone the chance to enjoy the river. To enhance the experience for everyone, we kindly ask that participants arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled tour start time. This allows for a smooth check-in process and ensures that everyone can fully participate in our initial briefing. We acknowledge that sometimes unforeseen circumstances may arise, and we make every effort to be flexible. However, last-minute changes can be challenging, particularly in peak times when tours are fully booked. Our ultimate goal is to provide a wicked rafting experience for all our guests. We appreciate your understanding and thank you for choosing to join us on the river. Thanks for your feedback, which we will use to continually improve our services. If you have any further comments or suggestions, please feel free to reach out to us. Ngā Mihi Operations
