Excellent days adventure for beginner and experienced alike. Huw was a great guide who kept the day interesting with stories, tips, instruction and local history. First time in a pack raft and had no problems navigating the river. Very stable and manovorable. The supplied chicken and salad rolls were the best I’ve had for ages. Great day out, and for the price, was easily the best value deal I had while in NZ. If your after a days adventure, with good company, food, scenery and great fun, definitely do this.
