    The host was thorough and helpful with his instructions. It did take a while for my husband to correctly navigate the boat, but we got there in the end. My husband and I enjoyed our two hours on the lake. They had a Bluetooth speaker on the boat, so we could play our songs, they also provided blankets and a little heater to keep our hands/face warm. The LED lights was a nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back again.

    We had an amazing time mountain biking at Crater Mountain thanks to the amazing bikes at Central Plateau Cycle, but what really stood out about our visit happened when we left our GoPro attached to one of the helmets and drove an hour away. When we realized we called the store and spoke to Diane, the general manager, and she actually had already emailed us asking if we had left it behind! When we told her we were an hour away in Rotorua, she mentioned that she lived around there and had no problem bringing to us where we were. It was SO nice and thoughtful of her that we tried to give her a tip on arrival, but she simply said no and that it was her pleasure. You can't make this stuff up. A+ hospitality and service. Thank you Diane! Will certainly come back when we're in New Zealand again.

    We rented two bikes and went on a Aratiatia walkway trail (17 km). It was an awesome experience, highly recommend. Just the right amount of excitement. Bart at Four B mountain bike hire gave us a great service and lots if useful information. Thank you mate.

    I was after a fun activity for the school holidays to take my boys (4 & 7) out on. We are locals and have always wanted to try the pedal boats but with my youngest having special needs it can be tricky finding things he is comfortable with doing.
    Thought we would give it a go and it was awesome! I pre-prepared him for having to wear a life jacket and he was a little hesitant at first so sat on my knee (good resistance training for mum while I was pedalling haha) but quickly relaxed and happily sat in the other seats.
    30mins was long enough for us and we loved our adventure.
    It's awesome to get out on the super clear lake and be reminded of how beautiful our town is. My oldest loved it and has said we have to come back with Dad. Thanks for a fun adventure😊

    Awesome afternoon exploring lake Taupo on the jet skis!

    Super friendly and accomodating staff who made us feel totally safe and excited to get on the water.

    The skis and self navigation was very beginner friendly and all equipment needed was supplied.

    The Hire was so easy. The location meant it was simple to find and had plenty of parking outside. The bikes were in great condition and were ready to go as soon as we arrived. The helmets were adjustable and comfy. The staff were friendly and helpful.

    I really enjoyed my easy kayak along the freshwater stream. This is self guided. You begin in an aquaduct before popping out into a small stream which feels like you're miles from civilization. The gentle current slowly moves you along, you only need to steer. If you're a novice kayaker you can do this! There's plenty to see, native plants and animals and thermal activity. It's a must-do.

    We hired bikes from Bikes on Taupo. The two people were wonderfully efficient getting us all kitted up with bikes the right size, helmets, instructions etc.
    We had a sensational day for our jaunt - not a cloud in the sky. We had such a good time, the bikes were in great condition - very easy to bike. The bike path around a section of the lake is fabulous - clean, great surface and predominantly flat too.
    We all had a fantastic time!
    Thanks Bikes on Taupo
