Terrible!!! Fraud!!!

When I made a booking for my son and myself, there was no age restriction. When We arrived to have a rafting, they said there is age restriction so my son only did half way of the tour. When I complained about it, they suddenly changed their advertisement. Even the confirmation letter we received did not say any age restriction. They are horrible. They are keeping telling a lie. Very very disappointed.

From Wet n Wild Rafting - Grade 5 Kaituna River

Hi there, We are sorry that you were disappointed with the age restriction. It is noted on our website and on the Bookme's info also . I'm sorry it was not in your confirmation letter. We can see if we can get that changed. The age restriction of 13 is for all Grade 5 rivers and is under Maritime Law that we enforce this without exception. We know and understand its disappointing for children under this age. We highlighted this with you on check in and offered a full refund, or the option for your son to raft from the waterfall down. You chose the second option. You and your son had a lot of fun on the trip, so we hope you are able to remember the experience favourably despite your discontent. Warm regards WetnWild rafting
