This was a great day out. The forest was beautiful. We learnt a huge amount about the pests in the forest and the efforts to help eradicate them and NZ forest wildlife. Shane and Scott, our guides, were fantastic. Lots of fun but always made sure we had fun while keeping us safe. I cannot say enough complimentary things about... More

Even if you are not good with heights - and I'm not - this is a great activity. Our guides, Spencer and Rebecca, struck just the right note between friendliness and professionalism to make everyone feel comfortable and safe. Being up in the trees is special and the eco aspect of this experience is well explained and very worth supporting.... More

Although at first I thought the price was a little expensive this fun experience was definitely worth it. The zip lines and walk are amongst an untouched area of the forest that the public otherwise has no access to. Staff were enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. The company has also taken great measures to conserve the area by removing introduced pests... More

A zip-line is fun onto itself. Combine that with very well presented explanations about the wildlife restoration efforts in the pristine New Zealand forests of Rotorua and the outing is a double winner. Our guides Gary and Spencer were tons of fun and very professional about the safety of the group. We loved the tour.

the crew we had were so helpful , conscientious with help and safety which made the experience relaxed, enjoyable. Made me understand the conservation of New Zealand forest to a greater depth. Like the way the New Zealand RObin came to have a feed right from my hand.

This was our second visit, and I learned and saw even more this time than last time. Ziplining is possibly the best way to experience a forest, right up there with the birds! And a fun adrenaline rush to boot. The tour takes you on a number of zip lines, one of which is so long it disappears into the... More

I have to admit I was extremely nervous about this. Honestly if I had known just quite how scary this was going to be (I hate heights) I wouldn't have done it. However Arial and Tom, the guides were fantastic. They really look after you. So go for it, believe me if I can do this so can you.

The day I did this it was pouring with rain but that didn't matter at all. The 2 staff we had with our group the whole time were amazing they were super safety conscious and really informative but in a fun way. The zip lining was just so much fun I can't recommend it enough, we did 6 zip lines... More

Our two guides were exceptional with their safety procedures and personalities. It is an exceptional fun experience and their conservation efforts are most impressive and deserve everyone's support. Keep up the good work guys! Cheers to Vic & Jessy. . . Les & Sharon Queensland Australia

The best way to spend 3 hours in Rotorua. The Guides are friendly, funny and have safety as their number 1 priority. I never felt I was ever in danger even when ziplining upside down in the beautiful Mamakus. Each zipline you ride is different in that you are either up higher or the ride is shorter or much longer,... More
