AWOL Canyoning was a great company, very organized and the staff was awesome. Our guide Connor made everyone feel really comfortable. We did the full day Piha experience and it was well worth it. You really get to experience the National Park with hiking, swimming (water is pretty cold, so be prepared) and propelling down down cliffs and waterfalls. We also made a quick stop at the beach on the way home which is beautiful black sand beaches. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was because there was only 1 guide...we had to have one person from our group go down first with nobody holding the back rope for them and then that person was responsible for helping the rest down. Luckily, we had someone in our group that was a climber so had a lot of experience and was comfortable, but without her...it might have been a little nerve wracking to do that ourselves (especially the 50m waterfall drop). If you're up for a big adventure and amazing day--I highly recommend it!
