Excellent value for money tour - jet boat ride, the 'squeeze' which is not to be missed and thermal pool soaking. But, what made the trip 5 stars was the driver/ guide Jeremy. If you can, ask for him. He really cares about customer service, is friendly, funny and outgoing. We laughed the whole time. He was also really informative... More

We went on a cooler day and were worried we would be a bit cold. This wasn't the case as they give you good quality rash tops and splash jackets for the jetboat. We hopped out of the boat straight into lovely warm water. It is only accessible by boat so is beautiful and untouched. It was amazing squeezing between... More

There are a few 'compulsory' things to do in NZ, this tops my list... such a unique experience! Jeremy gave us a hint of Culture, the raw natural beauty of the river, and (in capitals) ADRENALINE! The Squeeze is amazing... as were the friendly team. Jeremy's sense of humour a real plus.

As an adventurous kiwi I have experienced many wonderful things and places in our beautiful NZ. This trip, however, was one of the best. I recommend it to anyone. We had our kids with us (6 and 9 years old). Who loved it. We also had Grandma (visiting from Turkey) who thought it was an amazing experience. Just brilliant. Thanks... More

You can find dozens of Jet boat riding options in NZ. But not the Squeeze. Amazing walk in a small, warm stream to a waterfall where you can stand under enjoying the warm water. Great ride with Jeremy. Thank's from Stefan from Italy. One of the best experiences in NZ. A must do.

Such a cool experience and good value for money. You feel like you're discovering a hidden secret. The boat drivers and staff are awesome and when things go wrong they are quick to remedy.

Jet boating with Jeremy as a guide was a blast! He started off with a beautiful Maori prayer and along the tour provided interesting facts about the surrounding environment. We (to include my teenage son and 72 yr old MIL) were SO pleased to opt for the "Squeeze"! Gorgeous and fun mini hike to a surprise jewel at the end!... More

Jeremy was a great guide and very knowledgeable. The squeeze was quite an experience as well. The photos could have been better though as they were mostly blur for the pictures taken during the squeeze. The spins were good but maybe there could be different stunts? haha
