Naughty oldies.

I was told that I wouldn't be able to do this. But with our three guides. We smashed it. I had a wonderful time. I can't wait to do more. I especially like to thank our three very lovely caring guides. Sorry but I have forgotten your names. You all made this day one of my most amazing experience out. I wish you all a wonderful future. Lorraine. Sorry we were a bit naughty. But that's us. And you were really great to be with.

Thanks so much for your review. It's awesome to hear this was the highlight of your NZ trip and that you enjoyed exploring our ancient native forest. We hope you took away some amazing memories!

Beware - this tour has a dark side

Firstly, the ziplines were great. I had a lot of fun soaring through the forest canopy and spending the day among the trees. Unfortunately, my experience was soured significantly by the talk on 'pests' half way through. As a vegan and animal lover, I feel great empathy towards all creatures, and I wasn't expecting such a graphic demonstration of animal traps and weapons, with pictures of hunters proudly displaying their murdered victims. This was meant to be a fun experience, and I really wish they hadn't included this part, as it greatly upset me. I struggled to enjoy the rest of the tour and I still can't get those images out of my head. Perhaps in future they could give people a heads up, so they can make their own choice as to whether they want to learn about this or not.

Thanks for your review Anouk. It's great to hear you had a lot of fun on the ziplines but we're sorry to hear you were upset by our conservation information. Conservation and bringing this forest back to life is very important to us. We are removing thousands of pests that destroy the forest and are killing the native animals that live there. We remove these pests in a very humane way to create a space where our native species can thrive - just like the birds you saw on tour. We have taken your feedback on board and have passed it on to the team to make sure guests are prepared in future. Thanks again for your feedback and we're very sorry you were upset. We hope you enjoyed hand feeding the wild native birds.

So much fun!

The tour guides were nothing short of amazing - so good for settling nerves, great banter and just all round fantastic people. The forest is beautiful, we did an afternoon tour on a cooler day and with the provided jackets we were nice and toasty. Cannot wait to go back for the Ultimate Tour!
