I did this trip with my partner and it's fair to say I was a little nervous in the beginning as you hear about so many people falling out of the rafts and I didn't want that to happen to me. Thommo was our guide and he put our mind at ease right from the start. The trip itself was amazing, just the most spectacular river to float down - we were wishing we could've taken our camera. I think you'd need a video camera to really do it justice. It was hard keeping your mind on the rafting as there was just so much to look at. Tongariro River Rafting are involved in a blue duck conservation project and we were fortunate enough to have one of these very rare birds pointed out to us on the trip.
The highlight would have to be the jump off the rock into the very 'refreshing' water - I was last to go as I didn't think I was brave enough but after watching everyone else, I didn't have a choice! Heaps of fun - a great day out and topped off with lunch when we got back to the base.
Have recommended this to heaps of my friends and would go back and do it in a heartbeat.
