Had a great time rafting with a large group. Guides were good, engaging, funny (corny funny), and they ensured we enjoyed ourselves. Recommend it for families.

We attended an afternoon session with my son as part of a scout organised trip. It was very well organised and the guides pitched it at the boys level. They loved it. It was also great value for money. Would defiantly visit again.
