Just terrific. Tony, our pilot, gave us a great flight & commentary as he took us over and round three eye-boggling volcanoes and the blasted & brutal landscape that surrounds them. It was great to see the Tama Lakes to which we'd walked the day before our flight. Many thanks for a great experience.

We stopped by to check the prices for a flight and we're delighted by the value for money offered and immediately booked our flight... More

Oliver provided an absolutely smooth flight this afternoon for gorgeous views! I couldn't have asked for a better experience and would highly recommend it to anyone considering it. I stopped by and was able to go with another couple girls that were going up in less than an hour! Thank you, again, Oliver!

This was a major highlight of our trip to New Zealand. The scenery on this flight was so breathtaking I had no words to describe it! The pilot was fantastic, very professional and knowledgeable about the park, its history and heritage. Months later, I am still awestruck at my photographs from the flight. I highly recommend doing this flight early... More

If you don't have time to hike throught the park, this is the best way for you to admire the amazing views of the volcanos! The plane ride is already an experience itself and the pilot.. the best!! Made the most of the ride with his explanations and great sense of humor! Total worth for the money paid!

Brilliantly clear views of the three mountains in the Tongariro National Park World Heritage area. No problem for the 4 seater Cessna to get close to the volcanoes, and give us an amazing view of the Chateau, lakes and amazing landscapes of this rugged countryside. Thanks Oliver, the flight was amazing!

The flight was absolutely stunning. Oliver, our pilot, was highly professional and very knowledgeable. Oliver immediately created an atmosphere where we felt very safe and relaxed which made the flight even better. Flying around the volcanoes is the best way to explore them.
