Warm, fun guides. Beautiful scenery. Well-maintained course, smooth operation, safety a priority. This was just an amazing experience that not only gave us the thrill of surfing the jungle, but educated about conservation and history without a shred of negativity. Well worth the cost, especially knowing it is thoughtfully used to protect the native wildlife. One of our best New... More

We took the tour early in the morning, with a couple of lads named Cameron and Jesse. Real good guys - heaps of knowledge about the rainforest and were keen to have a good laugh. Also they entertained you while you weren't in the forest (safety prep and bus ride) and made you feel entirely safe the whole time. The... More

Our family had a fabulous time doing ziplining with Rotorua Canopy Tours. The tour-guides Jen and Chris were great fun while also being very experienced, and knowledgeable about the ecology of the reserve. The trip was great fun for the various levels of adrenalin-seeking in our family and nicely balanced with information about conservation of native birds and feral animal... More

What an amazing attraction this is! We enjoyed every minute of it. It's not only to zip lines but all the information about the forest and the native birds. Jessie and Cam were incredible, they are so passionate about the whole thing. We will definitely do it again. Highly recommended.

What a fantastic morning- thank you to our funny tour guides. You guys were entertaining! Such a great establishment and I really like the conservation/ education aspect of the tour. Your company's commitment to the rehabilitation of the forest area including pest control is commendable. Good luck with the conservation trust and achieving for conservation goals for the area.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Rotorua. Extremely high safety standards, knowledgeable and entertaining staff. Canopy tours is also a conservation project with some of the funds going into the native forest protection programs. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Rotorua. Yes, it's not cheap but it is way more than a fun-activity!

Simply excellent. I'm up for anything but my wife is nervous, and I can't praise the staff more for their care and concern for her fun. She did the whole course, which is quite a challenge. The zip wires are fast and safe. The staff excellent and the facilities second to none. Didn't think this is a gentle walk in... More

This is a really terrific activity. On our trip the weather was pretty bad, very heavy rain from cyclone Cook; but everyone still had a great time. Our kids are 7 and 9 and they loved it. My wife is scared of heights and she loved it. I have seen the South Park episode about zip lining being boring and... More
