Great but scary fun with a great bunch of people. We went to celebrate a friends birthday and enjoyed a glass of bubbly at the highest point. I was the most frightened of heights in our group and Alex was awesome at reassuring me and boosting my courage and confidence to continue. A huge adrenaline boost and a great team... More

This was a very well spent 3 hours, with Elsie and Gary. I thought the whole experience was well worth the price, especially since photos are incuded at no extra charge. A nice mix between adrenalin and nature, and we learned stuff along the way. 4 out of our group of 10 were afraid of heights at the beginning, but... More

Had a great time in the forest canopy zipping from tree top to tree top. Enjoyed learning about this ancient forest and the efforts to conserve it.

I have very bad vertigo but was still able to enjoy this mix of beauty and adrenaline. The only downside is the price.... More

The decision to do the canopy tour was fairly last minute for us as we only saw it the day before we got to Rotorua and I am very glad that we made that decision. The experience was amazing and the guides (Alex and Dan) were engaging and informative and the best part of it is that part of the... More

This is ziplining with all the thrills of high, long wires but with a difference - that being the emphasis on eco-management of one of the most pristine forest areas in New Zealand. Would highly recommend as a not-to-be-missed experience.

This was one of the best things I have ever done! The combination of thrills, education, environment and sheer good fun was just amazing. The three hour trip was over in a flash. Our guides were knowledgeable, fun and focused on an impressive safety regimen (without labouring the point), and I have to say that apart from the personal terror... More
