“Bird's eye view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

A wonderful way to see the beautiful countryside and bush around Rotarua. If you can, take the 30 minute float plane flight around the lakes and Mount Tarawera. Great pilot, great experience.

“An epic way to travel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

We spent most of our holiday trying to find a scenic flight that was running but weather kept thwarting us. On a beautiful sunny day we finally got to fly - by helicopter - to Orakei Korako. Fantastic, stunning, really exciting and personal; great service and informative in-flight commentary. Great adventure for those wanting something special. Landing on someone's private garden (the company owner's in fact) and then getting VIP treatment to the geysers was epic.

“Totally amazing trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

This was by far the best thing we did in our tour of NZ it's expensive but the tour of White Island is incredible. The ground beats away underneath your feet the heat the smells the smoke acid river bubbling boiling mud is totally alien and surreal . It is hard to believe that this exists with any stability . Worth saving for

“Beyond Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

This tour exceeded our expectations. The weather cleared beautifully for us and we had amazing views over the lakes, mountains and geothermal features of Rotorua. Our helicopter pilot, Danielle, was an excellent pilot who kept us feeling comfortable and safe and was also a very good tour guide. We had a one hour tour and felt the indulgence was worth it for the wonderful experience.
