    Gary Stickler, our guide, was most informative and helpful...answering a myriad of questions. The drive was delightful as we passed from Tauranga to Rotorua, w/ great stops along the way.

    This trip was amazing, SO much better than we could have hoped for. We considered ourselves fortunate just with the trip and our guides, but then when we got to see the many dolphin pods, and got to swim with them swarming around us. Just incredible! We did get to see the lottery fish, so we bought our power ball ticket, and while we didn't win, we definitely consider ourselves amazing winners with this trip.

    Arrived on a Cruise Ship (Arcadia) and covered similar items to those covered by the cruise ship's own tour but in a smaller vehicle and for a much lower price. I have no criticism of the tour or our driver. As is usually the case with independent tours; feedback shared with those on the ship's own tour afterwards, came out very favourably in respect of the independent tour. They are more flexible as to the length and variety of stops (if nobody is interested in a stop you quickly move on rather than have a fixed time stop), and calls can be made at places that cannot accommodate large coaches. My only criticism of this tour was in respect of the guide "allocated" to us at the Maori village; she spent far too long teaching us how to say the name of the village (repeated during the show), then took far too long explaining other things about her relatives, then followed some other tours that meant we could not get close to items worth viewing, then arrived at the show so late that we ended up behind all the other tours. This was not the fault of Zealander; we were just unlucky, and could have been allocated a better guide. A worthwhile day trip.

    We had a really great experience. All the guys very amazing and helpful, they didn’t let us feel that it’s our first time skydiving. I would highly recommend this place to go and have an unforgettable experience.

    We had a wonderful day exploring the Waitomo glow worm caves, kiwi sanctuary and the countryside of the Tauranga area.
    Our guide Bron was great. She is very informative and makes sure you get to see everything you want....including Hokey Pokey ice cream!
    Our tour was almost 7 hours long but the time flew as we enjoyed every minute of it.
    We would highly recommend this tour and company!

    I've been to Adrenaline Forest (Bay of Plenty) twice now and both times I had so much fun! The staff are real friendly and do a great job of explaining things to you, and are available to guide you through some of the tougher obstacles if you feel hesitant.

    There are 6 courses in total, ranging from easy (1) to difficult (6) ranging from about 30 to 60 mins per course (depending on your fitness and fear of heights of course). The earlier courses are great fun for kids and adults alike. Courses 5 and 6 are particularly challenging though, are not for the faint hearted - I learned that the hard way!

    The harnesses have safety mechanisms built in so that you'll always be hooked onto something and won't run the risk of falling further than the length of your harness.

    Absolutely recommend this if you're into obstacle courses and don't mind heights too much. Heaps of fun!

    We had a blast! The BEST excursion on our 14 day cruise. Do NOT pass up this opportunity to have the most fun of your life. Rickey provided plenty of instruction to relieve any concerns we had.
