We were picked up in Queenstown and driven by coach to the base where we got into our wetsuits and fleece. We were also given water booties and a wind jacket. Then, the group goes by jet boat to the funyak. We paddled downstream, which may sound easy, by there is wind and water currents to deal with. We did get a work out. We all stopped half way to have lunch. You have to walk in ankle deep water to get there. Not for too long, but I did not expect this. However, even though the water itself is very cold, you don't feel it. The booties and wetsuit do keep you warm. Lunch was good with salad, veggies, deli meats, coffee, tea and dessert. We then paddled again until reaching the coach that takes you back to the base. You are in the wetsuit all day, but they are warm. The guides are all very good and very friendly and helpful. The tour details mention a walk in the forest and something about bringing good shoes. But we were in booties all day and the only walk was to the lunch buffet!

Thank you so much for an incredible day and an experience that I will remember forever. It was so well organised and such great value for money. The guides are not only friendly and knowledgeable, but so passionate and energetic too. It was so much fun! The guides obviously know their stuff but you wouldn't guess that they do the trip five times a week because of their enthusiasm, you can tell they love their job and that they aren't bored! So awesome to see all the filming locations and to hear such detailed history of the surrounding areas. Thank you again and keep up the good work, the guides all deserve some serious commendation.
