“Brilliant. Do it. ”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 via mobile

This is a really terrific activity. On our trip the weather was pretty bad, very heavy rain from cyclone Cook; but everyone still had a great time. Our kids are 7 and 9 and they loved it. My wife is scared of heights and she loved it. I have seen the South Park episode about zip lining being boring and I loved it! The guides were great (Jesse, Josh & Gary). Even the nature information was great. This is almost the perfect activity. The only downside is the price; we paid NZ$508 for four people, but some of the money goes to help the forest and it is a small group activity, etc, etc. I wouldn't pay $508 to do it again but it was worth it for a one off.

“Enjoy the adrenalin high up in the lovely NZ rainforest and benefit native conservation too”
Reviewed 17 April 2017

This was an excellent experience from many perspectives, the scenery was spectacular, the flying foxes huge fun, the guides (Jesse and Sylvester) very funny, friendly and absolutely professional at the same time, the business model superb where some of the profits are put back into conservation (pest eradication) with dedication and enthusiasm that is clearly sincere, and the organisation and attention to technical detail very impressive (eg iPad for everyone to provide details and confirm understanding). By the way, it was raining gently all the time, didn't affect our enjoyment. Truly world class.

“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.
