Well this was such a great tour. From meet and great through to the end. We had Rhys and Will and they were so friendly and informative. They went through how they are an economic friendly company and they had great diagrams and pictures along the way at each tree hut. They are very safe and fun. They crossed everything off before everyone took off and we all felt very safe. They gave us great tips on how to do tricks on the zip line. The views were amazing. I would highly recommend this tour. I went solo and never once felt left out. Going individually or as a group you will definately enjoy yourself. Great job guys

My 8 year old son and I braved the 6 line tour..We had fantastic tour hosts Nico and Asharay who ensured everyone had a smile on their face..Great views.. For those considering the 6 line over the 4 line be aware the last line involves a 15 minute walk down hill to get to it, which is quite hard on the knees.

This was a well-run, safe zip line experience. There are 6 zip lines and it took us a good 2-3 hours to complete them. Be aware that part of this includes a walk down the kiwi trail and there's a lot of talk about sustainability in the area. I enjoyed it, but be aware if that's not your thing. Henri and will took great care of us. They were enthusiastic and kept us very safe. I've done several zip lines and this was by far the safest I've ever seen.

Hi cmk042288,

Thank you for taking the time to leave some great feedback!

Safety is paramount to us here at Ziptrek and so it is always great to hear from our guests when this shines through. We pride ourselves on our guides who strive to create consistently safe, fun and educational tours.

I hope you enjoyed the short walk through the forest on the Tiki Trail, for some it is a little steep but for those guests we can often offer a drive around to avoid the most part of the track.

Thank you again for your great 5 star review,

Kind regards,

The Ziptrek Team

Went on the 6-line trek with my hubby as part of our honeymoon. Lovely and friendly staff who catered to the clientele. 6 line is worth the little extra as the last few zips are really fun. Small groups to make it a nice number and the views were brilliant. Great fun and highly recommend the attraction. Nice touch that some of the price includes a charity donation. Thanks team Canada for taking us down the zips & the dinner spot advice too.

Our family (2 adults & 2 kids 8 & 6) had a great time zip-lining down the skyline mountain with Martin & Nicola! We did the 6 line tour and even though the kids could not do the last zip-line (due to them being under the weight limit) we all really enjoyed ourselves & thought it was a much more fun & adventurous way to descend the mountain. Martin & Nicola were both really friendly, great with the kids & awesome guides! Would recommend this activity to anyone!
