    Very friendly and cheerful staff. They are adept at calming nervous customers. Great views of the forest. I would have liked to have heard more about the indigenous birds and ground animals of the forest and to what extent had their populations improved as the conservation measures were implemented. Perhaps a bit less detail about the effectiveness of reducing the numbers of possums. In my group there were a number of Australians who appeared not to have appreciated this information.

    An amazing experience. The tour guides were super friendly and knowledgeable. They always made sure we were comfortable. The zip lines themselves slowly get longer and faster which helped me ease into it more. We got to eat mealworms which was cool and feed one from our hands to a bird. Definitely recommend some sort of go pro because the views were amazing.

    The Ultimate Experience

    Super glad we decided on the ultimate canopy tour vs the original one. Steve and John-o were fantastic, funny guides and true professionals. They were knowledgable about the forest history and shared about the conservation efforts being done. I also loved how we were able to feed the local birds of the forest out of our hands. Our tour was pushed back half an hour due to a downed tree and the team was super communicative in letting us know. Highly recommend this tour during your visit to Rotorua! Thank you!

    The most memorable were the views of the native land of the Maori people, and the preservation efforts they are committing to preserve the land.

    65th Skyhigh Adventure
    Leilani_N, Apr 2023
    We had a wonderful time on the Zipline Ultimate Adventure. there was so many ziplines to experience each with a different terrain. Our guides; Hans and Stephanie, were fun, encouraging, and informative. We are celebrating our 65th birthday year and this was an amazing way to see the forest canopy zipping through the trees and looking down at the thick vegetation below. There was so much to see and experience, we would defiantly would do it again and highly recommend it.
    Awesome experience!

    After tramping through the forest, we finally came up to the first obstacle! Very nice walk in with informative commentary by our two guides. The tour was very safety oriented, and the guides were very on top of things! The finally was a straight down repel! It was AWESOME!
    We recommend this activity to everyone.

    Amazing experience

    Harry and Sarah were excellent guides! We had a blast on this trip. We loved the ziplining, the views, birdwatching, and learning more about conservation efforts in NZ as we were traveling from the US.
    Best time for sure!
    Andrea_S, Mar 2023

    Exhilarating experience
    Ian_H, Mar 2023
    The whole experience was exhilarating. The guides ensured everyone experienced the rush in a safe and fun way. Ziplining through the forest canopy at speed. What a rush. Great was to see some of Rotorua's and New Zealands forests. Highly recommended.
    Best experience ever!
    Zohar_G, Mar 2023
    Best experience ever! We took the ultimate tour which had longer lines and it was worth it! The guides, Alex and Natalie, were super professional when it came to safety and talking about the forest's eco system. When it came to anything else, they were simply HILARIOUS, which made everything even so much better.
