Great team with extensive knowledge and a wonderful sense of fun. Couldn't have been a more perfect day and no sore muscles afterwards. Thanks tour leaders.

“Well Worth the Money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

The tour was great fun especially the long sip lines, very informative and a experience not to be missed out on. The tour guides where very professional and great company. Many thanks to them for a great day out in the tree tops.

“You don't need to be a thrill seeker to love this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Because my wife did, and she's is anti adrenaline junkie. Great tour, fabulous enthusiastic guides, gently learnt so much about conservation and history. Completely blown away by how bouncy the forest floor is when it has not been interfered with my humans, it did not even feel like exercise!

“Even hubby enjoyed this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

My hubby didn't really want to do this but we talked him into it. He finally admitted it was awesome, a great adventure, lots of fun and that (drum roll please) he would actually do it again. 'nuff said.
We had great guides. Safety comes first and we all highly recommend it!!!!!! It was worth every penny. It is truly not to be missed. Even if you are not the "outdoorsy" type, you will enjoy.

We love seeing people come back after the tour who were not so keen to begin with, they are usually the customers who end up enjoying it the most! We think it great value too, so thanks a bunch for your review!

“Highlight of our holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

We had an action packed holiday in NZ in late January and did lots of great, fun things but the whole family (mum, dad and kids aged 12 and 10) unanimously voted this as the best thing we did all week. It is very well run and organised, the forest is beautiful and the guides are lovely - they worked out very quickly who was a bit nervous and who was up for a bit of fun. Safety is the top priority all the time and despite being 22 metres high at one point, there was no risk of any mishaps! I would strongly recommend it to anyone, even if you are a little apprehensive, as it was a fantastic afternoon.
