Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely amazing trip on a beautiful sunny day. Our guide was phenomenal and made us feel super comfortable and safe throughout - with brilliant knowledge and stories about the area. The kayaking was very fun and a moderate physical workout! But it did have a motor if we needed it, so no issues if you need a break!

Would wholeheartedly recommend!

Janet was a brilliant guide and we had a great paddle over to the carvings, then a lovely stop on the way back with drinks and muffins. Brilliant trip - thank you!

Great trip with knowledgeable guide. Had the jacket, life vests and skirt that made it much more pleasant. The 10k trip was a nice workout for us, has motor for guests that get tired. The carvings are great and Linda has unique insight from people related to the carvers. Beautiful setting on Lake Taupo.

The water was so calm on the way out to the carvings and the rest stop was wonderful.
On the way back, there was heavy rainfall and waves which just made the experience even more memorable.
We want to say a huge thank you to our guide, Pallidon (sorry if that is spelt wrong!) for being so wonderful throughout this activity. He had great knowledge, stories, and fun facts about the lake and New Zealand in general, which made our experience so much better.

We spent a wonderful day with Legend kayaking the Waikato and visiting the Orakei Korako thermal park. We originally booked The Squeeze but we couldn't do it post Cyclone Gabrielle and so the company offered us the Waikato/Orakei Korako tour as a substitute and it was fabulous. Full marks … and a lovely lunch … ! Thanks, guys … !

My whanau and I had a wonderful experience with Legend and Joe. They gave me lots of calm reassurance and the knowledge to be able to kayak confidently. Seeing Ngatoroirangi was awe-inspiring, even more so with the added background that Legend shared with us during our journey. Ka Mau te Wehi!

Our guide Legend, made this trip special. He was so knowledgeable, jovial and kind. A pleasure to be with. Even without Legend though, the lake is gorgeous. Crystalline water that changes color with the passing clouds and sun rays. We thought it would be a silly touristy thing to do, but it actually expanded a place in our hearts for Taupo.

Our guides were well organised and equipment was first class.
Our expectations as far as view was different but not bad.

So fun! Even with slightly rainy weather we went out and had a blast! Our instructor Legend was very informative about the culture and a really nice guy!

Prices on this website are wrong and they will not honour the listed prices. We we so disappointed- we came to Trip Advisor to plan our holiday and liked the look of this trip. When I went to book the prove went up 25% or so. I contacted the company and they would not honour the Trip Advisor price. So disappointed we decided to spend our op money elsewhere.

Hi Casey, Thank you for your response, unfortunately, we are sorry we couldn't grant these prices for you - around the time of this review being posted we were in the process of changing our prices, so this error was more than likely miss-communicated with our admin team.
