RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Absorb the snow-capped mountains, native beech forests and glacial lakes of the Mt Aspiring National Park from two perpectives during this combo tour. Start with a breathtaking 20 minute helicopter flight over the region, before skimming along the Wilkin and Makarora Rivers on a jet boat ride.
Home to snow-peaked mountains, sweeping river valleys and remote wilderness, the World Heritage-listed Mt Aspiring National Park is a show-stopper from every angle. Begin your adventure with a breathtaking scenic helicopter flight with local legend, Harvey Hutton. Carve around mountain peaks and ridges and admire views of glistening glacial lakes and river valleys from the sky. Then, hop into your jet boat and enjoy 25km of high-speed action on the majestic Wilkin and Makarora Rivers. Experience the ultimate shallow water jet boat ride, skimming along in just inches of water on these glacial-fed rivers, whilst learning about the history and geology of the area from your guide.
