Great experience

Punctuate. Driver not just take you there, but would also give you good advice such as the weather condition, what to bring with and where you will find toilets. However, when one finished the 194Km and arrived the exit in Ketekihi carpark, prepared to walk further 1km out to get your car back there. That's quite tired.

No experience

They are a shuttle service. That's it. Other shuttles give you a briefing when they drop you. These guys don't care a bit. Unlike Mountain Shuttle they don't provide parking. I paid $15 to Mountain Shuttle for parking. Though I could have parked on street. The walk from the end of track to car park is 1km. It is a pathetic muddy road and you will have cars passing by flying the dust. Still better than waiting for the shuttle to fill up I guess

Great Shuttle

Thanks a lot! Shuttle arrived early and as all of the persons who had booked were early too we could leave 15 mins early which helped us avoid the crowds coming with the big busses.
