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.
Great tour of the lake and great views of the Māori rock carvings. I appreciated that they took the time to ensure that we got multiple opportunities to see the carvings close up. Muffins were delicious too!
We did this trip a few years back when Mum was still alive and decided to do it again since we were in taupo for a couple of days.... only 4 of thanks to COVID-19 but the guides more than made up for that
