Our guides Jesse and Stacey, You both Rock! from the time we left the van to walk to the first platform there was no pressure to rush, and the support they gave me was amazing. I relaxed enough and gained the confidence to actually complete the tour. I am terrified of heights but the gear provided and safety protocols made me feel safe and secure and there was always a hand to hold if the fear took over. This was an experience I will never forget. Amazing location, don't forget to hug the majestic 1000-year-old rimu before facing the best flight ever on a 220m Zipline - so breathe through your fear and do it anyway, you won't regret it!

The forest was beautiful. Jess and Harry were great guides and had us laughing and feeling very safe and in good hands from the get go. They were also very informative about the wildlife, the great job their company was doing with pest eradication and the bird and insect life that was flourishing. They had an added highlight of friendly little birds that would land on your hand to feed. Of course the star attractions didn't disappoint. Ziplining was really fun, exhilarating and a little scary. We felt totally safe though and by the end were brave enough to have tried all the little tricks that Harry and Jess suggested. Our group ages ranged from 9 to 65 and they helped every person with their fears. I will highly recommend this to all including our own Glamping guests.

Even tho is was a wet and windy day the crew were excellent at guiding us through the ziplines. Sadly we couldn’t complete the ultimate tour but we finished off on the original tour where they were able to show us all the cool tricks you could do. Even going upside down. Was an awesome day!
