What a fantastic time we had from the moment we meet Jen and Bec's we new it as was going to be fun! The zip lining was amazing, initially a bit nervous but after the first one you are away! We all ended up letting go and taking up the challenge our guides set to experience it upside down!
Wow didn't think I would do it, but so glad I did! A wonderful family experience and would highly recommend! Also love the talk about how they are working with the
department of conservation to eradicate pests and that some of the cost we paid goes towards this project! The forest is simply gorgeous! The whole experience unforgettable. Thanks to our amazing guides and fantastic group! Fun had by all! I wanna go back and do the night tour!'

Our family of five (two adults and three children ages 9-13yrs) found this to be one of our top experiences in NZ. The guides Kris and Josh (?) were fun and motivated. Not only did we feel safe and excited about zip lining but the small details of the birdlife, fauna and conservation efforts made a big impression on us all. We really loved this trip and glad we made the side trip from Lake Taupo back to Auckland.

The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. It rained heaps during our zip lining but the rain actually enhanced the views of the rain forest. The zip lines were fun and I learned a bit about NZ culture.

I had been wanting to do this for a while but ended up staying in Rotorua at short notice and this was my first activity. It is very wise to book, unexpectedly our son came to stay at even shorter notice and really wanted to do this, but it was fully booked. Ten people max with two guides. There is a short tramp through the forest and in between a few of the zip lines. Safety is paramount, some of the platforms you land on have no guards and you are clipped on all the time as it would be easy to step backwards. Canopy Tours may be expensive but a percentage of the fee goes back into the conservation of the forest and elimination of predators. All this is explained during the tour. The lines are exhilarating. Don't be put off thinking you are too old - I'm nearly 70 and was certainly not the oldest. But our group was fun, the youngsters certainly entered into it, once gaining their confidence, doing a few acrobatic stunts. Even I managed to fulfil the obligatory stunt of hanging out from one of the platforms. Our guides were patient, expert, knowledgeable and funny, oh so funny particularly at one point. I will not spoil it.. Just loved it all.
