Mt. Tarawera crater tour

The 2 guides were absolutely fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly. I did the tour with 2 teenagers and my 10 year old with Down Syndrome. Rocky took Max under his wings and supported him on the not so easy tour. He actually had to encourage Max to have some stops. Amazing scenery for photography. I highly recommend the tour.

Great tour

What a fantastic experience to share with family and friends! These 2 tourist guide , Rocky and Frank, were sooo amazing made the hike safe and a bit easier. At first it looks scary and you think you can't do it but as soon as you follow their instructions ,you will feel better and enjoy it. It was a jolly ride like a roller coster on th ground for me but not for others because of those bumpy road. Going down the crater was the most exciting part of the tour which I didn't expect I thought it was a joke... I highly recommend this tour.

From Mt Tarawera Guided Volcanic Crater Experience - 4.5hrs

Kia Ora Lizaa, You’re right when you first catch a glimpse of the scree section it’s easy to think it’s a joke but once you get there it’s awesome! Thanks so much for your time we always appreciate hearing feedback about our guides. Rocky and Frank are awesome and we are lucky to have them both. All the best Kaitiaki Adventures
