I am a travel agent for a large corporation, very rarely do I ever put up reviews or have a particular bias towards one or few companies. BUT LET ME TELL YOU!
HOLY COW! This was one of the most exhilarating, memorable, terrifying experiences of my life!
We started our day by heading to the office of River Rats in Rotorua, getting dressed into the wet-suit gear, taking photos and having a great laugh. The main raft guy comes out in his raft uniform and seriously I thought we were going to war, he looked like a swat guy from the LAPD, cracked me up!
We then jumped on the bus to head to the river (5 minute drive) on my particular bus I had a hilarious guide (who turned out to be on my raft - the poor guy) when we got to the river I was kacking it! Seriously [--] myself, but all was good.
In the raft we jump (literally) heading down stream we learn how to paddle (seriously, I couldn't work out which was forward paddling and which was back paddling AND I WAS AT THE FRONT!)
Ok so the first few rapids were fun but we stopped just before the BIG [--]! Let me just say, lucky we were in water, otherwise my pants would have been wet anyway! over we go......... OMG BEST THING EVER! 7 metre waterfall, screaming girls and our hilarious host.
Safetly coming up from the bottom of the river we looked back up at the waterfall and were like WE JUST DID THAT!
anyway at running the risk of making this already novel even longer i will just say this......
MUST DO FOR EVERY VISITOR TO ROTORUA! SO WORTH IT SERIOUSLY! IM GOING BACK :D
