"Blimmin awesome time
We are a family of 6 adults and just finished doing the 5 Tunnel Rail Cart Tour and The Hatrick Jet Boat tour. We had a fantastic time on both tours and would definitely recommend to others. We gained some history on the Whanganui river and the rail tunnel builds from some very knowledgeable guides. Thanks for a fantastic experience."
