Geoff was amazing

I would recommed this tour as our driver Geoff not only picked us up from outside our accomadation but was very informative about every township we drove through. He had the best sense of humor ever and the knowledge he shared with my husband and I was priceless. The drive to Tarawera Falls was very comfortable and he knew so much about forstrey. But the best part was the Tarawera falls itself. Awe inspiring and breathtaking. We really recommend this to anyone who uses Geoffs services, absoulutly priceless and memories made on our trip.

Worth it when you get there

The falls themselves are quite magnificent and worth the long drive to get there. The fact that it was raining hard made the walk in quite treacherous and older people may have some difficulty with both the distance to be travelled and the often uneven footing. As were were the only passengers that day we had the guide to ourselves and his commentary was both informative and amusing.

Thank you for your kind words. Rainy weather does make the bush walk a little slippery. . Noted
