They are on time and can easily get more buses if it's a busy day either going or coming from Tongariro Crossing (you may have to wait 10 minutes but they let you know). Good communication, good briefing before the walk with important information. Safe...More

Excellent service. We finished the Tangariro crossing 25mins later than the last bus service, we called them to let them know and someone was already on their way back to get us. Really friendly and understanding staff.

The service provided by these drivers is second to none!!! They stand by their 'leave no-one behind' guarantee which gives huge piece of mind!! Informative about the walking tracks, weather etc. Highly recommend.

We finished walking the Northern Circuit walk in Tongariro National Park we used Roam to drive us back to Whakapapa Village. While it was pricey for the very short trip, the driver spoke very passionately and knowledgeably about his country. He recommended many good attractions...More

If you intend to walk the Tongario Crossing and you are staying in the Whakapapa Village, then ROAM (among other operators) is the means to get to the start point. They unfortunately offer only fixed times of 7 and 8 AM - I would have...More
