Highly recommended to do this. Racing through ancient forests and being close to nature on a single cable is one of the best ways to experience NZ.

Fantastic trip again. This was my third time and still love it. Able to share with family and friends this time. Lovely friendly girls that guided us with great humour but always making you feel safe. Wonderful conservation effort as well. Highly recommend

I did the big tour and enjoyed it a lot even it was a rainy day. You can borrow rain clothes from them so you stay pretty dry. The explanation of the eco system was really good and easy to understand.
