Had an amazing time with New Zealand Riverjet. Shannon and Tony were very hospitable and friendly hosts. Tony was really experienced and informative, giving us an interesting and humorous commentary along the river and lots of fun spins on the way back. Totally recommend this experience - so glad I did it. Lynette - Rotorua Isite

I am so glad we did the Squeeze tour! Adam talked us into it and it was a unique life experience I'll always remember. You basically get a professional and informative boat ride and then explore a narrow, jungly, mossy canyon. Adam was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide that made us all feel special, like we were long lost friends.... More

What an adventure. We had the most amazing tour guide Tony! He not only can drive a boat but the history that he brings to the tour made it even more memorable. The views are stunning every direction you turn there is something to see and he has a story to tell. A must go!!!

We were a large group and went on the riverjet tour that included the squeeze. This is a ton of fun and if you get the chance is a must do. The jet boat is a lot of fun especially when they spin the boat around in the water. The squeeze was awesome to hike through and there are awesome... More

I booked our RiverJet excursion from the States before our trip to New Zealand. Our entire family from ages 4 to 80 had the greatest experience doing the RiverJet and the Squeeze with Tony. He made everyone including the grandparents comfortable. The ride to the Squeeze was beautiful and Tony was gave us some great information along the way. He... More

A definite highlight of our 5 days in Rotorua. We had a tour all to ourselves just my husband and I. Jeremy was great. He gave us an amazing ride, answered all our crazy questions, but most of all we felt like we were the most important people and friends at the end of it. When we walked in, no... More

Hi Julia, Wow, thanks for your totally wicked review. The 'private' tours don't happen very commonly so you guys must of had some luck up your sleeve. I agree about the tour being value for money.

NZ Riverjet was fantastic all around. Our guide, Adam, was incredible--very informative, and saftety/comfort oriented while still being laid-back and fun. They outfit you completely (head to toe) in wetsuits, crocs, rain jacket (if needed) and PFD. It was beautiful along the river and the hike through the squeeze was great. Lots of times for photos. We took a school... More
