I wanted to give my 7 year old daughter a kayak experience and we had a wonderful hour on the river, we both loved every minute. Laura, our guide, greeted us with a winning smile at the shop and looked after us perfectly from beginning to end. I cannot recommend highly enough - a big thank you to C&K Taupo from me, and a huge thanks for the photos Laura took and emailed to me within a few days of our trip.

Fantastic trip down the river, I was a little apprehensive due to not being in a kayak for over 20 years but Claire, our guide, made it such a relaxing and easy trip! Laura was an absolute gem in helping me answer all the questions that I had beforehand! Thumbs up guys! I will be back in a couple months time to do the four hour trip!

I had an awesome time kayaking the lake to see the Maori carvings. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. And he brought tea and mugs!

Nice staff in the store, a bit too much laid-back guide, a pretty tour on Lake Taupo to the Maori Carvings, price was ok, kayaks in top condition.
