Small group, felt like a personal experience, friendly, local and knowledgeable staff. Loved the jetboat, walk through Hobbit forest to waterfall, amazing scenery, view of the Glacier and mountains.

Very informative, waterproof and safety wear provided. Trip right up the Matukituki River to below the glacier.

My wife and two daughters (13 + 11 years) spent a fabulous and exciting day with Brett (my wife thinks this was his name!!!), who was very friendly, humourous, and she said "had a lovely nature!" Meanwhile I was fly fishing with a guide up the stunning Makarora River. They loved it... the highlight of a thrill packed holiday for them: views of Mount Aspiring...Lords of the Rings territory, and 360 degree spins!
They would recommend this to anyone!! Mint!! Written onn behalf of my wife Anne-Marie Robertshaw: Durham. England

The ride on a jetboat was exciting, and worth it. You have a very good guide which tells you a lot. And of course very beautiful views!

Best part of our trip! Calvin was our guide and he was amazing. This is a family run operation and we heard that all the guides are great. Calvin is a wonderful story teller and an amazingly professional driver. We have never met anyone quite like him. The scenery was just great. The jet boat goes in inches of water... inches from land and boulders… through narrow rapids... We felt totally safe with Calvin but the adrenalin flowed! At one point we had 2 horses run alongside us - magnificent. We highly recommend this trip.

I did this trip three years ago and thought seriously about doing it again on my recent trip to New Zealand. The exhilaration of jet-boating was only part of the pleasure; the outstanding beauty of the landscape, the walk through the forest, the gulls nesting along the shingle banks, the extensive knowledge of Brent and Sue and above all their obvious love for what they do, all added up to a truly memorable experience. Don't miss it.

Fantastic! It enriches your soul just being in the vacinty of Sue and Brent. Well worth it especially on a cold winters day. :-)
