I think the guide (Dan) did an excellent job in engaging with the group. He made the whole experience so enjoyable and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves. The ride on its own is exhilarating and beautiful. I would recommend anyone to go with Kiatiaki for a tour anytime!

This is a brilliant trip to do in good weather - amazing views of the line of volcanoes, from Mt Ruapehu to the south and north to White Island. The walk around the crater rim is spectacular - reasonably strenuous but plenty of time for rest and photo stops. Jogging down the scree into the crater is great fun! Excellent, well-informed guides with a very interesting commentary on the history of the mountain and the ongoing restoration by the local Iwi in partnership with DOC.
