We had an amazing adventure that our family loved with canopy tours. The entire trip was beautiful and exhilarating. Our guides Charlie and Dana did a superb job of entertaining us with fascinating information about the forest and birds while preparing us for each zip line. The scenery and infrastructure of the ultimate tour is absolutely amazing and we would highly recommend to everyone.

Awesome day out up in the canopy. Matt and Liv were great, good humor and very capable and knowledgeable about the forest. My only negative was the long waiting around on each platform as everyone gets secured on and off the platform, there were 10 of us so there was a lot of standing around and it got a bit cold at one point. Obviously safety is a must so still 5 stars :)

Oh my goodness me. This was the highlight of our week long stay.

Actually scrap that. It was the highlight of the last two years.

Will and Luke are SUPERB. Funny, utterly professional and able to make us all on the group feel like we were their favourite clients ever.

They are passionate about the conservation work that the company does, and we all felt proud for having chosen them.

Will, Luke you have spoilt zip lining for us with anyone else!!!!

The Ultimate tour is highly recommended, well worth the cost and a real adrenaline rush, but also you feel really safe too.

I can't wait to go again. And again, and again.

The rating on here is spot on. If you are thinking of zip lining please use these guys. Not only will you have the best time, you will be contributing to the exceptional environment. Thanks guys.

Amazing Celia! That is so amazing to hear that you loved your trip so much! Even to say that it was the highlight of the last two years, that is incredible! Will and Luke are definitely amazing guides, so we are very glad to hear that you thought highly of them too! Safety is our number one priority so we are definitely glad that you felt safe and still had a blood pumping experience! We are definitely proud of the work we have put in to ensure we have a thriving and healthy forest and now you are a part of our story too! We cannot wait to have you back zipping in our forest sometime soon!

Luckily we took the early morning option as it was a hot January day and you spend a large part of this tour ziplining and crossing bridges above the tree canopy, well above the heights reached on the usual treetop walks & tourist zip lines.

Our guides , Jess & Kopi, were great company, providing the eco commentary in a fun well targeted way. Pointing out the wildlife and fauna along the way. They were also attentive to our safety, checking our harnesses without fuss each time they clipped us off & onto each section. Giving friendly guidance and encouragement where needed to get off the platform and slide away.

This trip is well worth the cost, providing a well balanced eco and adrenaline experience for Kiwi’s as well as overseas visitors. You do need to be agile enough to be able to climb stairs and walk across swing bridges, and be comfortable with heights.

We will be back again

My adult daughter and I did the Ultimate Tour yesterday. Amazing day, in the very professional and safe hands of Matty and Lexie. With no other participants we had plenty of time to steady our nerves and never felt rushed or pressured to do anything. The conservation info was really interesting and never felt like a lecture - just enough to be informative and presented so well by Matty and Lexie. We never felt unsafe - on ziplines, platforms or swing bridges. The attention to detail by our guides was fantastic - lots of clipping on and off required and it all went like clockwork.
Thank you Matty and Lexie for such a memorable day.

I went on this tour with a bunch of friends and we had a fantastic time! Having done the original tour a few years ago, it was well worth doing the ultimate tour which has much longer ziplines to see more of the forest. The tandem zipline races were my favourite part of the tour, we all suddenly got quite competitive 😅 Our tour guides, Jess & Ash, were also amazing. They were very professional and made sure we were as safe as possible all while fitting in and making jokes alongside our boisterous group.

I absolutely recommend anyone try out ziplining with Rotorua Canopy Tours. Even if ziplining itself looks terrifying at first, the tour guides will do all they can to make you feel comfortable and you'll be happy to leap from the platforms by the end of the tour.

Thanks for coming back and experiencing our ultimate tour! I hope you got to win your race down the tandem zipline and got bragging rights! :) We are very pleased you and your friends had a fantastic time with Jess and Ash.

The first line will always be the one where you are concentrating on doing it right, so dont take in your surroundings and then just looking forward to doing the next line. Our guides Paul and Matty J were completely professional and safety was paramount at all times. They were brilliant, informative so cant praise them enough. Great to know a good part of what we paid went towards helping free the area of possums, rats etc.

What an amazing tour. The staff are fabulous and keep the small group (max 10) motivated and informed. You get info on the area and conservation along the way. They remember everyone’s names and if you’re slightly nervous they will assist and ease your anxieties. Was spectacular and expensive but well worth it knowing that a lot of your fee goes into conservation of the area.

This is one if the best adventures we have taken here in New Zealand. The staff (Natalie and Martin) were excellent guides and made the apprehension about zipping down a line for the first time very comfortable and enjoyable. They included a good amount of information about conservation methods in one of the most beautiful native forests in NZ and were extremely attentive to safety. I was surprised at how many zips we went down and the duration of each ride. They were much longer than I thought. The 3 hour tour was well worth the fee and I would not hesitate to do it again or recommend it to anyone visiting. It is a must do activity.

The MASSIVE 400m long Zip line was a huge highlight for three of us and my 10yr son LOVED the last swing bridge.
I have to say that the guides made the experience so much more amazing, and when my son struggled with the 400m zip line Stacey (one of our guides) was right there to encourage him and was incredible, I couldn’t possibly thank her enough. Our guides (Luke & Stacey) were fun and knew how to put our minds at rest, but when it came to safety, they were all business (they had just the right amount of sass and professionalism to make the experience one to remember!)
I can’t recommend this enough and would do it again in a heartbeat!
