“It rained!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Boy did it rain! But the guys put on their brave faces and took us up the mountain in what must have been difficult conditions but it was great fun and we all enjoyed it, even though at times coming down may have been scary!! The BBQ lunch was fine even if we had to have it under cove. Well done guys.

“Relaxing & informative way to see Raro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Having conquered the Cross-Island Trek the day before, we were ready for a more relaxed pace, and this was just the ticket. The entertaining drivers of the tours give you a behind-the scenes look at Island Living, and are a great way to explore away from the main road (Ara Tapu Rd), see the local flora and fauna, and provide a terrific lunch - definitely do the morning tour (lunch provided)!
