The bus ride to the canyon was a little scary, looking down into canyon from a narrow road. The driver was friendly with a good amount of information. The Jet boat ride was exhilarating with great speeds, 360's and passes very close to to the canyon walls. Awesome fun!

Thank DibM6

I was rather nervous about the drive into the canyon after reading some reviews and chose to sit in the middle seat, but regretted this later as we felt so confident with Dave, our comic informative driver and would have preferred to sit by the window to take better pics of the fabulous rugged landscape we travelled through. The jet boat ride up the canyon with another very talented Dave was exhilarating and so much fun, an adrenaline packed 30mins. And then the return journey back over the same one way dirt road with sheer drops, where we met a few other tourist vehicles coming towards us! Overall an amazing experience we will never forget Do it,thoroughly recommended

Thank Vicki B

I can only reiterate what other reviewers have said. The bus ride into the canyon is as exhilarating as the jet boat ride! Fabulous scenery, light hearted banter with our driver Dave, followed by the excitement of the jet boat. A fantastic option in Queenstown.
