I went with 3 of my kids and my friend and her 2 kids. Our group of 7 were the only ones on our Moa tour. Aged 6 +. We were greeted by friendly Jenny at the top who was lovely and got our paperwork sorted. Steve and Jaques were our 2 tour guides. We had a ball!!! My little... More

Want something different that the whole family can do? Try this it's so much fun you will have a blast. Dan and Steve were our guides and the made this an awesome couple of hours with their Eco information during the tour and also with their "stories", it was a real laugh. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

We chose the 6 line Kia tour and had a blast, including the last zipline touted as the longest in the world. Totally exhilarating, and we surprised ourselves by zipping down the second line in a 'heels over head' upside down position (sounds scary but is just plain fun). Our guides were very knowledgeable without being overbearing. All in all... More

Just zipping was so much fun, but it started snowing while we were doing it, it was freezing but the experience of flying through the air with snow falling around you made it even better.

I booked our family of four in on the Kea 6 line tour. Originally I was going to book us in on the Moa 4 line and so glad I read all the reviews and changed my mind. The Kea 6 was awesome. It was certainly adventurous, our 9 & 11 boys had a ball. Dan & Jacques, our tour... More

Had a great time zipping down Queenstown hill in Dying turtle fashion! Jono & Adam (our tash sporting Australian James Franco circa 2010 look alike) were amazing with awesome chat and full of eco info for the ride down. Highly recommend if you are looking for something a little less extreme than a bungee or a sky dive. x

Good way to spend a day of adventure that isn't to extreme. My one compliant would be that the guide Johno said the other guide Adam looks like "a dark haired/Mexican Ryan Gosling". This is simply not true, he is more of a Zack Efron type if you ask me.
