Recent reviews of happy travellers

Pickup from our B&B right at time - nice driver - everything great! The company was very friendly and helpful in the beginning and also picked us up from our B&B accomodation. They drove safe and were helpful with some extra information. Great trip!
— Lisa, Trip Advisor
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.
— Suzanne, Bookme
Great way to visit Tongariro
The pick up service was on time, staff very friendly and informative and the complimentary ice pops at the end of the hike were greatly appreciated! :)
