The Magnificent Murupara Maidens all met teaching in Murupara in the 1970s. Every year one of us is Entertainment Officer and we have a weekend together. This year Jeannie was our Entertainment Officer Extraordinaire as she chose Waiheke Island and the zip line. From start to finish we were blown away by everything; the organisation, friendliness, expertise, support and, of course, the magnificence of our adventure. For four Maidens in our 60s it was truly spectacular and tremendous fun. We joined up with two other fantastic NZ couples and we all laughed as we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Our two zip line buddies and helpers Zeno and Sam couldn’t have been better. They were so encouraging and, once we got our first zip underway, all nerves were settled and we enjoyed the ride yahooing across the tree tops. One of our Maidens required some sugar half way through the walk back and, via walkie talkies, a sweetener was run down from HQ and he stayed with us as we made our way back to the start. The care was outstanding. Our homeward driver organised a cup of tea and entertained us on the way back to Oneroa dropping us off at the corner of the street in which we were staying.
We couldn’t speak more highly of the entire experience and, above all, the care and encouragement provided by the kind and friendly staff. They were particularly calm and attentive at all times. Well done!
Thanks for the most amazing experiences. You are all 24 carat gold stars!

Hi Annie and the Magnificent Murupara Maidens

Where do I start? What a review! Naturally Zeno and Sam are going to be beaming when they read this, as I am now. I'm glad that Jeannie's choice of adventure ticked all the right boxes for the Maidens. I'm also glad to read that when a little pick-me-up was needed it was dispatched quickly.

Thanks for visiting Waiheke Island and EcoZip. I hope the Magnificent Murupara Maidens adventure next year, wherever it might be, is even better still!

Warmest best wishes
Gavin, Zeno, Sam and the team at EcoZip

Hi Jennifer

Thanks for your brilliant review. We loved reading that you enjoyed the experience so much you came again. Please get in touch if you're ever back on Waiheke and want to zip again - as a 3rd timer you'd surely qualify for mates rates!

Warmest best wishes

Amazing experience! Tour guides took their time to make us feel safe during setup & orientation - especially appreciated as I am afraid of heights. The views are absolutely incredible. Zip line guides were very knowledgeable about the island, its history, and its animals and vegetation. Shuttle service was super easy to find off the ferry, and our driver was friendly & funny. Highly recommend!

Best zip line - of total of only four - we have seen so far. The line equipment were safe, got high speed and no worry about when is the correct starting time or force of braking.

The three lines were fun and it was beautiful gliding over the jungle. So lush and green! The walk back up to the base through the jungle was amazing and so cool to see the different trees and plant life. The guides were really funny and had some cool facts about the area and the wildlife/plant life in the area. This was honestly my favorite part. So beautiful. Loved the experience. Definitely would recommend to anyone visiting the island

G'day from Waiheke and thanks for adding to our growing library on Trip Advisor!

I'm really pleased to read that your walk through our native bush was one of the highlights of your experience. As you discovered, it's because of people like you and your fellow 'zippers' that the forest, which was once threatened, is in such great shape and is being protected for the future.

Thanks for the recommendation to your fellow TA readers - we really appreciate it!

All the best
Gavin and the EcoZip team
