What an absolutely fantastic trip.... one of the best things we did in New Zealand. We had booked the helicopter option but they helicopter didn’t fly but we are so glad it didn’t as the bus ride on the road up was thrilling. A must do in Queenstown!!
The Go Orange White Water Rafting experience was fantastic. The drive out was commentated hilariously by Guy (this helped to make the ride a little less scary as there are certainly some heart stopping moments on that road) and the actual rafting experience was AMAZING! Kennan was an excellent guide who made sure we were well taken care of but also had lots of fun. I honestly could not recommend this trip highly enough!
This was the best fun. Shout out to Trish, who was an excellent guide. Her instructions were clear and she took the best care of everyone on our raft. I felt safe the whole time (even when I fell out of the raft). It was an absolute blast in the best location. I highly recommend this for anyone and everyone. Highlights was the first rapid (the wildest) seeing mountain goats on the cliffs and the cascade rapid after the tunnel. Loved every minute. The bus trip up the mountain has incredible views, even if a little hair-raising . Will was entertaining on the bus trip up, which helped put my nerves at ease. Will was also fantastic on the safety kayak. Go Orange were the best!!!!!
Took my teenage daughter with me. I had done white water rafting before in my younger days, but found this one to be the best. Very well organised, epic drive to get there, and excellent guide on raft. The scenery was outstanding. The whole trip could not be faulted. Would totally recommend to anyone.
Great Experience white water rafting! Big shout out to Adam aka “Jesus” what a funny kiwi! Been rafting with him twice once in 2017 and 2020 as our guide. Not only did we have fun, we also had a good laugh, and great safety precautions taken! Our boat almost flipped and without his quick thinking we would of flipped, thank god! Even though we were in his terms an ‘epileptic spider’ on our raft, we made it to the end!
Really recommend Go Orange !! 😊
Myself and girlfriend booked white water rafting with go orange on the Shotover River. The guides were funny from the start, we got driven down skippers canyon,one of the most dangerous roads in the world to get to our starting point. It was pretty cool and the driver was class, a bus full of people with a trailer full of boats, fairplay hats off. Our guide tucker was very experienced and professional. The river was high so the rapids were super fun. Loved it. Highly recommend

Such a fun half day activity, come rain or shine! It honestly doesn’t matter if it’s raining because well, you’re gonna be white water rafting so you WILL get wet. The 40 minute journey to get to the river is stunning itself, and will take you down one of the worlds most dangerous roads! The river that you rafr down is situated old gold mine area so you get an insight to how the area used to be in the gold rush days. Staff are highly skilled and professional, as well as knowledgeable about the river and it’s surrounding area. This is definitely a must do when visiting the adventure capital of NZ.
