Katoa Jet and Lake Rotoiti Hot Pools Experience

AMAZING! We were on our familymoon (we are parents to 7 children, so a honeymoon wasn't an option for us). We ALL LOVED it! The booking was easy, and the hosts were GREAT! Thank you so very much for making our holiday that much better, we loved the experience, and the photos that we could view afterward were GREAT!
