THIS IS A MUST DO on anyone's list! Loved every moment of this adventure. An amazing way to experience and see this part of NZ, which is only 1.5 hours from Auckland. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable about the history, vegetation and area. Thanks for an unforgettable experience!

Hands down, these guys are the best! Our day in the canyon was a great mix of adventure and beauty, and so much fun!

Also, shout out to Wayne and Anne who were fantastic guides! Super friendly and knowledgeable. Helpful, encouraging us to new things and challenge ourselves but never pushy or intimidating.

Even if you know nothing about ropes or canyons or abseiling, you gotta give this a try!

Great experience. We had a winter canyoning experience with our group, and it was definitely cold, but mainly very fun and super spectacular.
Highly skilled and experienced guides (Sarah & Anna) with equipment in perfect condition. We felt safe and in good hand all along.
The guides were also very nice and chatty during the whole excursion. Very enjoyable and memorable, highly recommended!

As someone who had never tried abseiling before, my day in the canyon was unbelievable! The guides were very professional and fun. The view down the canyon from the top was fairly intimidating but I had full confidence that they would keep us safe. They took lots of great photos as well. I would recommend Canyonz to anyone looking for a defining experience to their New Zealand adventure!

We took our staff to do the entry level abseiling and they loved it, although I personally was terrified we couldn't have had more encouraging people look after us. The staff were still talking about it on the Monday so say no more! Thank you for the excellent service, and we couldn't recommend highly enough

WOW! I did lots of adventures around the world, but this one is pretty special!

There are many tourist adventures around NZ, where you feel just like another cow in a herd. This one is different. This one is very personal! You don’t need to be a tourist do this!

If you want to experience beautiful nature where most of the people can’t get......if you want to push your limits....if you want be in presence....if you want to feel the adrenaline in your blood....but feel very safe...DO IT! If you are thinking of it...DO IT:)

I loved hugging the waterfall, I loved seeing the amazing scenery, I loved to be scared before big jumps and I was proud of myself what I have done.

I had an opportunity to meet the owners and most of the guides and they are beautiful people loving what they do. They are professionals in their field with very long experience. I felt very safe with them.

I think you should be little bit fit to enjoy the steep walk uphill and a long day to get down:)

The day made me braver to face the real life.

Thank you the whole team for your amazing work!!!!!!!!!!!!

We found Canyonz through TripAdvisor and after reading the pages and pages of positive reviews, my husband and I locked in a full day of canyoning. Let's just say that it was the BEST way we've ever spent the very last day of the year!

Wayne and Anna were incredible guides, chatting non-stop and really just being so easy to be around. We were super lucky to have just the two of us and one lovely girl who was doing the day tour on her own, so a tiny group of 5, including the guides. The hike up to the top was incredible, steeped (pun intended!) in history and storytelling, expertly relayed by Wayne and Anna - cheesy rom-com chatter appreciated too!

The canyoning, abseiling, jumping, sliding and ziplining down was ... life-changing. The most gorgeous scenery, clear and cooling water and adrenaline-inducing drops were just out of this world.

This is 100% a MUST-DO when visiting the Coromandel. One day, when our two boys are old enough, we're bringing them back to do it again with us!

I was the one who booked the trip and was also the one most hesitant to participate because of my complete fear of heights. Our guide Anna was such an enthusiastic and patient teacher that she helped quell my anxiety and our family TOTALLY enjoyed every second. Anna is such a professional and so cheerful. The company is well-run, the trip was perfectly guided, the day was one our family will always remember with joy. Thanks, Anna!

Kia Ora,
If you are reading this review then you are either doing or deciding to do the Sleeping God Canyon with Canyonz.
These guys are awesome. Wayne, Bree & Bernard were our guides on the day and were fantastic, friendly, supportive and very professional.

Don't be fulled there is no helicopter to the top of the canyon. Its about 1 hour walk quite steep incline so medium fitness is required and well worth the walk.
The scenery is amazing and the thrill is real.

I loved the fact everything was included, knowledgeable staff, transport, lunch, photos, wet suits, shoes, helmets, waterproof packs and even a BBQ afterwards.
I give this 5 stars ++++++ and will be doing it again for sure.

Also bite the bullet and do the whole day so much better than the half day. I did it with my Sister who shouted me for my Birthday BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVEN
Keep up the great work Canyonz.

Absolute epic canyon and epic team to take you through. If you’re after a sick day out and want a bit of an adrenaline rush this is it. It’s challenging but worth every bit.

Saw this adventure under "Things to do near Thames" & at the same second I decided I HAD to do it - I also decided I was too OLD to do it. Was planning to go sky diving, but my heart wanted the Full Day Canyon. Never been canyoning before, abseiling, rock climbing or the like, in all of my 60 years. Live in a perfectly flat countryside. What was I thinking!!!! But my heart was taken and I had an overpowering desire to give this a go. Contacted Canyonz almost a year before my trip and inquired further about fitness and any age restriction or concerns. I was mainly concerned about the 300m climb but set about walking up and down the local grandstand steps and started doing mat pilates, to try and build up to it, plus kept walking daily for an hour. The day after arriving in Auckland, I took the ferry across to Rangitoto Island and did the hike up an back-like a trial run. Russ and Anna picked me up from my accommodation in Thames. Friendly, casual and professional. Great attitude to help settle the nerves. As it turned out, the climb up was manageable and I was actually surprised when we arrived at the starting point.
Russ and Anna were AMAZING. Even though I was feeling confronted and like I wouldn't be able do it, their calm preparation, instruction and confidence made me feel like it would be alright, I just had to TRUST them. And I did do it, gingerly I admit, but did it. Even two of the three jumps. At no time were any of us rushed, asked to do more than we felt we could or pressured and Russ and Anna were continually checking that all was well, with each of us. The lunch was GREAT, thank you - you will appreciate it.
For a full year I longed to do this Canyonz trip, for the whole year I doubted I could, age, fitness or that something would happen to prevent it going ahead on the day. I worried for nothing - yes it was challenging, physically and mentally but more than any of that it was AMAZING and I am extremely glad I listened to my heart.
