    Great service, no complaints

    As good as could have been asked for. The bus picked us up from our Air BnB in Turangi bang on time and when we got to the end of the crossing hours later we barely had to wait more than a few minutes before we were on our way back again. Friendly drivers too happy to share their knowledge of the local area.
