What people are saying about Taupo
We got picked up in a Hummer which was a fantastic start to our experience! The driver was lovely and the music was great. Andy was my instructor and he was brilliant. He made me laugh from start to finish and I instantly felt at ease when I met him, despite his jokes about the gear not working! The process on arrival was quick and easy, including the safety briefing and instructions given by instructors. The skydive was the best thing I’ve ever done and I would do it again and again!
A fantastic afternoon. Skipper was great. Watching him trim the sails and be sped along by the wind made it all the better, so glad it wasn't a motor boat. The carvings are what you sent the pictures but, as always, better in real life. The skipper's commentary made it interesting, amusing and fresh, even though he must have said it thousands of times! A great experience, helped by beautiful weather, we even got to have a swim in the beautiful water from the yacht.
Had a really great trip out to see the Maori carvings. Beautifully smooth cruise on a sunny late afternoon. There was a choice of lower and upper decks with us preferring the lower deck, sitting inside but able to venture outside to take photos. We used this fully to take photos of the beautiful surroundings and the carvings. Drinks were available making for a pleasant trip. Wonderful value.
Attentive tour guide to cater for some more nervous than others. Nice touch with hot chocolate on boat on the way down. Fun to jump off cliff would have liked to do that more than once. Letting people change seats so more can try the front was good. Friendly atmosphere at the depot.
Exciting and a blast to experience. We absolutely loved this whitewater experience! Our guide, Jade, was the best at maneuvering the rapids after teaching his crew how to help too. The hot chocolate at the end of our trip rocked!
