We had a fantastic 3 day guided river trip with Owhango Adventures. Our guide Willy knew the river so well, we stayed dry throughout the river trip and kept away from the crowds. We enjoyed the cultural experience including powhiri, songs and stories, and we loved the night in the private campsite listening to kiwis in the bush. I would thoroughly recommend travelling this majestic river with Grant and his team.
We did a three day Wanganui river trip. Willi the guide was great, provided a cultural experience with Maori songs/prayers and history. Took us up several interesting side rivers which we have paddled past in previous trips by ourselves. Grant is the quintessential kiwi bloke. Nothing was to much trouble and sorted out our flat Tyre while we were on the river. Great service!
Great service from Grant and his team. They helped me with a tricky itinerary and executed it with a no stress attitude. Nothing seemed to be a problem with these guys, their highest priority is for you to enjoy your trip. Thanks for a beautiful river adventure
These guys are a quintessential Kiwi firm. Grant and his team were professional yet relaxed, culturally sensitive and informed, good humored and personable. From our blessing at the river on commencement to the cold beer at journey's end this trip was a fantastic and fun time. We highly recommend them.

Good old NZ hospitality and no stress adventure just what we signed up for. We booked the 5 days unguided trip, a simple briefing and the adventure was all ours. We totally enjoyed the Canoe trip and the team led by Grant made everything hassle free and heaps of fun. The hotel accommodation is old but serves it's purpose. After 5 days the burger and chips is wonderful and we will definitely be back for another adventure at Owhango adventures.
