Here what one of our charter guests had to say:
"We chartered The Rock for our engagement party and it was hands down the best 3 days of our lives. Jonny, Liam, Harley, Erin and all the crew were a gift! They were less like staff and more like guests that helped out. The activities were flawless and we all had an extraordinary experience."

-Derry Brown, NZ
