We loved our rafting trip. The staff were great, really friendly and fun but at the same time we felt safe with them. They encouraged us to do a jump, swim a rapid. The rafting itself was exciting and we made it down the waterfall in one piece without flipping. We would highly recommend this trip and this company.

Our rafting trip ended up getting canceled due to the river being too high (There had been a lot of rain recently). But it is worth mentioning that the staff were super helpful in trying to reschedule and dealing with the cancellation.

I had originally booked a cheaper rafting trip with Rotorua rafting, but since the river had been flooded it got cancelled. They offered my friend and I to tag along to a place further away (we had to pay the difference since this one was more expensive), but it was worth every penny in my opinion! It felt safe even...

I'm a local here in Rotorua and took my niece out rafting with rotorua rafting. The crew were amazing. Engaged, professional, and looked like they loved what they did. The ride was very exciting and top value for money. Lunch supplied. No vegetarian option so Jack took off in the van and came back with a yummy sandwich. Very impressed... More

Jack and Jesper told us exactly what to do and we paddled hard and had a blast bouncing over Rapids and holding on for dear life in some spots. Expert guides and an incredible adrenaline rush. Thoroughly recommend for parents with their teenage kids. We took our 13 and 15 year old girls and they have been raving about it... More

This was a most amazing afternoon and one, which still thrills me when I think about it. I am not at all into adventurous things and don't particularly like water sports, but felt I had to go along with this (there were four of us in the group) so as not to look like a wimp!

We had the best staff party with Rotorua rafting. Thanks so much to the rafting team for taking us on The Rangitki river on Saturday 8 th April 2017. 6 went in the boat and 6 came out the other side. Perfect day with lunch and a cheeky beer at the end. All bases covered. Would certainly recommend Rotorua Rafting... More

Thanks for your review Tamatainui, It is a sad day at Rotorua Rafting where we have worked for 6 years with only positive reviews. We are struggling to match this review with any clients in our database/ Waiver. The dates and incidents you mentioned have happened 5 days apart. We did have a raft puncture on the river which was... More

Best thing I did whilst in New Zealand. The river and scenery are breathtaking and the rafting was fun on steroids. Toni our guide was the best guide on the river. We liked it so much we went back the next day and did it again.
