    Great hike, fair transport service

    The hike was truly amazing and is definitely worth it. The bus service, on the other hand, was simply alright. They picked us up at our hostel which was great. On the way to the start of the hike, the bus driver forgot to pick up some people and had to turn around which made us lose valuable. We had to rush through the whole hike to make sure we would make it on time. For fast hikers, I would recommend this bus service but for slow hikers that consider the Mt Ngauruhoe hike, I would suggest to pace it up!

    North island road trip

    The driver was fantastic. Full of information and a true local. I would definitely recommend this company. It's a small mini bus which is much nicer than the big buses.
