so much fun.

We had a really good time, the rafting itself was amazing. The experience would have been 5 stars but I am taking them down a couple of stars because one of the guides dropped in some casual racism for a cheap laugh during the bus ride. It was really uncalled for and not a good look for the company. It would be awesome if people would realise that racism is always inappropriate, and especially so when representing their company in a professional capacity.

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
