I was nervous about signing up for this, mainly about the climb. (I turn 69 in a few weeks). But Wayne and Helen were great and the climb was fine. This trip is worth it just for the fantastic scenery. But the abseiling was amazing. I always felt safe thanks to the professional methods of Wayne and Helen. We had... More

This was a fantastic experience on every front. The combination of adventure, safety, and interesting history of the canyon made for a great day. I've done canyoning in a few places and this is a truly world class day out! I wish i could give it 6 stars.

Had a great day out with canyonz! Fantastic adventure. Wonderful scenery. Thrilling abseiling and zip lines. Always felt very safe. The guides Wayne and Helen were very professional and safety conscious but had the same time you could tell they enjoyed their job and had fun with things. All in all a very memorable adventure and I would definitely recommend... More

Unreal canyon that can only be experienced with these fine folks. Russ and Neil (guides) went the extra mile on every front. They provided excellent instruction, knew the area's history, and used heaps of creativity to rig up awesome descents. These guys really gave it their all and my wife and I are still impressed. I genuinely struggle to think... More

This was the most epic day! If you're looking for pure New Zealand adventure, this is it. Really well priced for a full day of adventure! I would do it again in a heartbeat and would give it 6 stars if I could. The guides are awesome and really know the "ropes" - pun intended. The scenery was absolutely breath-taking!... More

A definite must do in New Zealand! Such a great adventure and beautiful scenery. The guides were amazing and did such a great job at adding a bit of kiwi culture and history into the adrenaline packed day! Im a bit of an adventure enthusiast and the canyon still got my heart racing while the nature had me in awe.... More

This is a full-on trip but so much fun! Went with a group of friends and we all had an amazing time. Russ and Wayne could not have been better guides. They were professional, entertaining and educational. They made everyone feel safe at all times. The location is stunning and we were lucky to have hot sunny weather so every... More

This is definitely the best way to experience the natural beauty of New Zealand. Around every corner and over every cliff are some of the most breath taking views and to top it off you are participating in a fun adventure while taking it all in. Our guides, Ryan and T, were super knowledgeable and had heaps of interesting things... More

Wow! Dramatic scenery, adrenaline-fuelled adventure, fun and knowledgable guides, top quality equipment, safe and an unmissable experience. Wayne and T were fantastic, personable and great guides. We absailed down waterfalls, jumped off high overhangs, zip-lined, climbed and had a brilliant time. Filling and tasty lunch and BBQ dinner enjoyed. I can't recommend this trip highly enough, DONT LEAVE NEW ZEALAND... More

We had a fab day, each of us enjoying the exhilaration and scenery while celebrating Gary and Geoff's Birthdays. Rus and Anna delivered the professional, yet fun, challenging experience. Everyone stepped out of their comfort zone at some point. What a great day, that will always be remembered.
