All the help and information I needed in one spot.
Jan 2021
So helpful with organising my floatplane ride, contacting them, giving me a map for directions. Also as a keen photographer, I was enquiring about a couple of spots I had heard of and she went out of her way to be helpful

Spoke to a lady for some advice on where potential freedom camping spots were in taupo. She was very unhelpful and quite frankly she angered me, this experience was a nightmare, will never return.

Rude!
Mar 2020 • Family
Came to this visitor centre to get some more information on the Tongariro alpine crossing walk. However the lady behind the desk was unwelcoming and very rude. When asking question on the walk she gave brief information and instead of giving more helpful advise she said “ just go watch the tv over there” which was turned down to a very low volume and was no help whatsoever. We then spoke to another lady who was equally patronising and sarcastic. Being two young girls not knowing the area and going to a information shop we were expecting a much more informative experience. With basic map and no information our starting point for the walk was unclear.
Considering you pay $35 each for a one way transfer you would at least expect better and more informative customer service. I suggest you pick up on some personal skills given your work place.

This is a central location in Taupo for travel / attraction / tours information. This is a great place to visit to get an details... we used this location to call a taxi to take us back to our hotel after our excursion... Thanks for your help and assistance.

Unhelpful
Dec 2019 • Couples
The scene is set by the approach - no toilet facilities and no where to leave bags - signs without the shred of courtesy.

On entering and looking at the wall map a member of staff came out of a back office and walked between between us and the map. No offer to help by anyone.

Lots of information books well set out, but in terms of people skills and in contrast to other very helpful centres this place has a lot to learn.

These people aren't just experts in all things Taupo, they can help you plan your next stop. Check out the library just next door if you want to read the newspapers, and the surrounding park, complete with statuary is worth a look.

Helpful & friendly staff

With only one full day in Taupo, Deni was so helpful in organising a tour and lake cruise for us. As we didn’t have a car to visit the major sites around the town (such as Huka Falls and Craters of the Moon), Deni suggested a hop on/ hop off tour which allowed us to see all the major sites and complete the 1 hour walk around Craters of the Moon. We had a private tour for only €60 each for around 4 hours which was amazing to see everything in one morning. Following this, Deni also suggested an afternoon lake cruise to see the Maori Rock Carvings. We managed to see all the major sites in and around Taupo within a day and wouldn’t have had a clue where to start without Deni, so thank you very much Deni!!
