“Great hike with nice views from the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This was a very nice hike with great vistas from the top with a few different routes to the top depending on how steep you want the climb to be. Great for taking dogs on as well.

“Brilliant views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The views from the top are brilliant but the drive up is not for the faint hearted. We were driven up but a few days before our visit a young man had gone over the edge and been killed so drive very carefully

“"World View"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Fantastic views of this glorious part of New Zealand (but then, what part of New Zealand doesn't have glorious views?). A "must do" when visiting Napier.

“on our way to eat and drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Part of the Odyssey twilight experience wine and dine the view is awesome and to see the Sunset from such a height and so clear is pure beauty the only thing my Wife disliked was the narrow winding road up and even more so on the way back down but She was fine after a few wines. Plus our driver/guide was very good.
