The trip was not as adventurous as was advertised, we did not slide down waterfalls or jump into pools or absail. We were lowered down the slides and the guide was controlling our absail descent and there was no jumping into anything. It was very tame, the whole family was disappointed with the experience. It was still somewhat enjoyable. The guide was really nice.

This was very different to my only other previous canyoning experience 4 years ago which had more abseiling. This felt more challenging, perhaps I was fitter and younger then. We had a great time with 2 others and Ross, the guide. I had a headache halfway through the canyon and it lasted 20 minutes. At first I thought I was dehydrated as it was a warm day but once I loosened my helmet slightly the headache went away. I was quite slow on the canyon as I was worried I might slip. Thankfully everyone was patient (perhaps silently cursing). We enjoyed the ziplines/zipslides the most! Thank you Ross and Canyoning NZ. We might return to try other canyoning trips if I get fitter and more confident.

Our tour guide Ross was awesome. My partner and I were lucky to do the experience on our own as no one else booked. Loved every minute and can't wait for November to do a full day!

Hi There,
Thank you for your great review! Ross is awesome and takes pride in what he does!
Even with a full trip, we like to keep our numbers down so that our customers are not waiting for their turn for too long also making this a more personalized trip! Great to hear that you loved every minute of our trip and we certainly look forward to taking you on our full day trip soon!
Kind regards

This was an absolute treat and one of the favorite things I did in New Zealand! I did the full day option in Mt. Aspiring National Park with Andrew and Ross. Both were so fun, very professional, and made the experience as enjoyable as possible. Everything is very personalized and was an incredible introduction to canyoning. I absolutely loved it and couldn't recommend this company more!

As a first time canyoner I could not fault my experience with "Canyoning New Zealand". The guide certainly knew what he was doing and made everyone feel safe. The half day should still be considered a challenge but it has made me feel like I'd like to do the full day with this organisation.
Great job and thanks to Ross for leading
