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.

A real insight into the power and beauty of Mother Nature! Seeing White Island was somewhat eerie given its history, but absolutely breathtaking and a must-do if you’re in the area.

The flight over White Island was everything I had hoped for. Graham was very informative with all the explanations he gave us re the volcano, recent eruption in 20219, the mining history and flora and fauna that survived the eruption. Graham did many fly overs of the island so everyone on board was able to get some good photos. He also gave us the opportunity when we took off to get some lovely photos of Whakatane and Ohope Beach and coming back we were able to get some photos of Whale Island. All in all a good hour flight.

We've done many scenic flights before, but this one was one of the best. We did the 90 minute flight over White Island and Mt. Tarawera and Joanna was very informative and made sure everyone on the flight got exceptional views by doing many flyovers. Would definitely recommend doing a trip with them.

We did the Mt. Tararwera and White Island Trip and were so glad that we did both as it was fasinating.
Jo, our pilot, was superb. There was a nervous flyer on the trip and Jo went out of her way to explain every bump. I'm a frequent flyer but found the explanations really interesting.
Seeing both Mt. Tarawera and White Island from above was amazing.
I definitely recommend this trip.

An amazing trip. We did the White Island and Mt Tarawera trip as a family (kids are 4 and 6) with Jo the pilot. She was amazing showing us around and even keeping the kids engaged.

George is a fantastic pilot and looked after my elderly parents really well. They did the grand tour of white island, Taupo, Ruapehu/tongariro area. They raved about it for days! Highly recommend this tour.

An amazing way to discover White Island from the air.
Very knowledgeable staff and pilot with a lot of respect for the island and for the tragedy that happened in 2019.
