I travel all over the world and I have never experienced a company that issues a confirmed booking secured with a credit card and then on the day of the flight states, they’re “too busy” to honor their own agreements. I guess this company feels it’s acceptable to violate their own bookings and leave their customers with zero options. This... More

This person called at 7.30pm on CHRISTMAS NIGHT asking to book a trip for 9am the following morning. Unfortunately we were already completely booked for the day. They were told we were fully booked and that unfortunately we were unable to provide a trip for them. This person then ignored that information and went ahead and booked online via our... More

A thrilling time was enjoyed by the whole family. From the air we saw a diverse and plentiful part of NZ we never really knew existed.

The white island trip is a must to do experience on everyone's bucket list. The day we went was a little windy & overcast, but was so glad to have chosen a helicopter instead of a boat, as the sea was fairly rough! What a fantastic & surreal feeling when actually landing with in an active volcano. It may seem... More

The pilot was fabulous, pointing out areas of interest, very knowledgeable about the area. Pleased we went for the 20 minute option as we had a good look around the beautiful bay.

The flight out to White Island, the views of the Mount and Tauranga and being able to walk around inside an active volcano really blew my mind. The pilot of funny and engaging though might need to brush up on some of the technical information about the volcano itself. Definitely something I'd recommend to others.

Hi Murray, Thank you for your review. Good to know you enjoyed your trip and tour of White Island. It would be good to know what information you thought our guide needed to brush up on, as they are pretty clued up on the details of White Island. More
