It was good fun and a crazy team. But too expensive. And there was only one big waterfall, rest was too easy.
Very professional and friendly.
Great experience, highlight of my New Zealand trip. Bought on GrabOne.
It was a lot of fun and people have been very friendly. It was a good service. I always felt safe during the activity.
Excellent safety explanation, great river excursion, grade 5 rapids, well maintained gear.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
Great instructors, very fun day. Would do it again.
Don't be put off by Winter or bad weather, you're going to get wet anyway. With wetsuits, booties and fleece tops you stay warm, and the water was not really cold at all. The experience is fantastic, a great mix of scenery, story telling and adrenaline. Our group was 19-62 years old and everyone had a blast. Professional and entertaining guide and immaculate equipment. A must do experience!
1st time rafting and it won't be the last. Scary, fun and beautiful scenery. Can't believe I did it but now I am hooked. Thank you River Rats
White water rafting.
River rafting tour, good was the free pickup at camping ground. Nice guides, good equipment, the tour was graded a '5' of difficulty but a bit short for the money paid.
Good trip, nice guides, good experience.
Excellent - well organised and equipped. Knowledgable guide, well worth $199 a person.
I hired a sea kayak and was really impressed by the professional, friendly, helpful and responsible attitude of the staff.
I take pleasure in recommending this company.

Very nice and good adventure.
Very good guides and safety conscious. We went kayaking to hot pools. Amazing experience.
Because the Kaituna was closed due to high volume, an adapted trip on the Rangataiki was organised by RR which worked perfectly. Jason and Adam were brilliant guides and made the day all the more enjoyable. Stag loved it especially!
Enjoyed Lake Rotoiti and it's hot pools, had them all to ourselves, got good advice for further natural pools!
Did the Kaituna with these guys. Very competent, laid back guides... the entire crew was great. Rapids were a blast... made it without flipping. I couldn't believe the size of the waterfall... it's huge. Pics came out amazing. Would recommend these guys if you're rafting in the area. Thanks a bunch!

Very good experience with River Rats
Went down the Kaituna river with them and really enjoyed it the guide not only made sure we were happy and confident to continue down he also gave us a little bit of information on the area and rapids before we hit them. Was great to get the chance to swim (or be washed down) some of the rapids and thats a real thrill. They also had no problem with my wife and kids hopping on the bus with the photographer to go to the best watching places and take photos, a very friendly bunch. Thanks
Never been rafting before, but I will again.I experienced many adventures in NZ, and without doubt this was the best experience of our holiday. We ran the Kaituna River (Grade 5), and loved it so much we went again to the Wairoa. The Wairoa only runs 26 days a year when they release water for recreational purposes. It too is Grade 5 and was well worth the experience. The guides take into account the level of fitness and competence of all in the raft and I guess can make it hairy if they see you want it that way and can handle it. I hope everyone who loves living visits River Rats and pick which level they are comfortable with (or uncomfortable with, which ever turns you on). We were in good hands and never feared for our safety, but what a rush. I am 54 but dont act it. I did it with my sons aged 23 and 25. They loved it as much as i did. The staff were great and made the experience personal.
Thanks River Rats. I'll see you again.
Absolutely awesome. Mark was a great guide, who explained all safety issues and everything else we needed to know with us. All the guides and organisers on our experience were just awesome, and the photos were a real bonus. Really wicked river to raft, but really scary also. Thanks River Rats, 2nd time I've been rafting with you guys and the service is still top notch.
Good white water rafting for a small group & nice people.
Well organised. Good humour. Not over the top with safety.
Good experience. Safe and lots of fun. Good info. On time and professional.
