“What a fun morning!”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 via mobile

We did this zip line/walk with Scott and Ariel. These guys had great rapport and , except for the quite serious safety briefing, were incredibly entertaining. There were also some educational aspects about flora, fauna and conservation in this native forest that has never been logged. I was anxious about the zip lines but they were so much fun you had to forget about fears and just enjoy the day. Well done!

“A well oiled Machine”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 via mobile

From start to finish a great experience. The conservation concept works really well. The tour guides knew their stuff and really made the trip. The zip lines were lots of fun. The free download of photos was an extra bonus

“One of our best experiences in NZ”
Reviewed 16 April 2017

We were blown away by the whole experience with Rotorua Canopy Tours. The young people leading it were very experienced with the zip lines and were both a fountain of knowledge and very passionate about the conservation work being done in the park. The zip lines were exciting and age was not a limiter. This is a must do when in Rotorua.

“Have fun and learn too”
Reviewed 16 April 2017

Good mix of action and education hearing about the conservation work the team do in the forest.

Once you do your first zip the rest is easy. Even the highest one off a huge redwood tree.

The team were great, making jokes and putting everyone at ease. Pointing out birds and trees along the way and clearing traps when back on solid ground.

This is something a little bit different, but allows you to make a positive contribution to the pest eradication work in the local area.

“Awesome! A must do!”
Reviewed 16 April 2017 via mobile

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!'
