“Airbourne Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

It was here that we saw the biggest smile in New Zealand. It belonged to the gorgeous Angela, our pilot of the floatplane which took us out for a scenic half-hour flight. She loves her job, and, once we saw the fabulous scenery we flew over, we could understand why. Her commentary was excellent and included geography, history and geology of the area.

Expect it to be a bit bumpy, but that adds to the thrill!

“Bird's eye view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

A wonderful way to see the beautiful countryside and bush around Rotarua. If you can, take the 30 minute float plane flight around the lakes and Mount Tarawera. Great pilot, great experience.

“An epic way to travel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We spent most of our holiday trying to find a scenic flight that was running but weather kept thwarting us. On a beautiful sunny day we finally got to fly - by helicopter - to Orakei Korako. Fantastic, stunning, really exciting and personal; great service and informative in-flight commentary. Great adventure for those wanting something special. Landing on someone's private garden (the company owner's in fact) and then getting VIP treatment to the geysers was epic.

“Totally amazing trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

This was by far the best thing we did in our tour of NZ it's expensive but the tour of White Island is incredible. The ground beats away underneath your feet the heat the smells the smoke acid river bubbling boiling mud is totally alien and surreal . It is hard to believe that this exists with any stability . Worth saving for
