    The Kaituna White Water Rafting experience was outstanding- informative, friendly and culturally sensitive staff, an amazing environment and full-on white water meant that our expectations were exceeded! We are already recommending them to other travellers we meet who are thinking of going to Rotorua. Throw in mountain biking at Redwood for a rounded adventure visit!

    Absolutely fantastic experience I would recommend to all my friends. Wonderful experienced guides, I especially liked the female guide that was completing training in the raft! What great fun! Super scary waterfall. I'd love to do it again some day. No where near as cold as I thought it would be either. Even in the middle of winter!
