Kind and caring people

The shuttle driver was very nice and although I accidentally booked it for the wrong date I could change it without any fees. The only thing that was confusing was about the meeting point, we were confused where to go because there were two spots that could’ve been the pick up point as they described. Anyways, it was nice!

Didn't inform us properly about weather conditions

The shuttle ride was fine. When we arrived, we were informed that we should be careful etcetera, but it wasn't mentioned that the hike is not recommend today due to bad weather. There was an average wind speed of 70kmh with gusts up until 140kmh. Thankfully, the weather got better during the day but I would have liked to be informed of the current status and the official "not recommended" status of our hike!

Thanks for your feedback. The weather forecast was for improving conditions - which is why we ran. You were not forced into hiking - and you could have turned around or chosen not to go. We were not aware of this ourselves until we arrived at the start of the track. We have spoken with DOC about this. Yes, it was windy - and we made sure we informed all of our customers this. I think you had a pretty good day in the end which is great as the weather did improve as was forecasted. Cheers!

Great!

Apart for the slight hesitation we had for the meeting point, it is a very convenient way to go through the Tongariro Alpine Crossing in one way only and go back to your car at the arrival. The coach driver gives you multiple tips before your departure which were wery appreciated!
