It was amazing! Jeremy picked us up from the ferry terminal and he was so lovely. The staff at zip-line were very through in making sure we were all safe. Overall, had an awesome time flying over the forest and the walk through the bushland is just magical. Our guide was so funny and very knowledgeable. I just recommend wearing gum boots or shoes that you won't mind getting dirty because they will get really dirty! The island itself is just so beautiful with breathtaking views all over. Do not forget your camera!
The zip line trip was awesome! ! Be prepared to hike back after the last zip but not hard and guides were great! Don't forget your go pro!
This is one of the best things I have ever done. We took the ferry to Waiheke Island and this itself was well worth it. As promised Jake was at the terminal waiting for us. We were very lucky there was only four in our group for the day. We had a beautiful scenic drive including a photo stop to ziplines. Jake and Sarah were so competent and safety conscious we all felt very safe and comfortable attempting our first zipline. It is such good fund and very exhilarating. A little tip - very hard to concentrate on taking a video and hanging on at the same time for first timers. They do offer hire of a camera pro that fits on your helmet to film for around A39. We had a good idea of giving our camera to the other couple so they could film us and we have theirs to film them. Unfortunately we didn't think of this until after the third and final zipline. Really, really good day and we go Jake to drop us back in the little town where we found some lovely little bars and restaurants. Cannot rave enough about Jake and Sarah they were excellent guides. After the zipline you get a magnificent walk back to base through the rainforest of about 20 minutes. This alone was well worth going there. Well done Waiheke Island and Zipline!!!
Do it! I am afraid of heights and I did it. Good exercise too when getting back :
We really enjoyed this afternoon. The staff were fabulous and very thorough - I felt very secure in jumping off.
The nature walk back to Reception was a lovely way to end the adrenaline rush of minutes before!
OMG Just unbelievable you really really must do this it is soooooooooo TOTALLY AWESOME- We would do it again in a flash LOVED IT
What a great event. The guides technicians that help you were exceptional! the entire system is almost brand new and probably the safest in the world. The views from the location on Waiheke were amazing. The ziplines themselves were exhilarating! particularly like the auto braking. Be sure and get the Go Pro selfie option. The hike backup was almost as fun as it was a lesson in New Zealand nature marvels. A trip to New Zealand is incomplete without doing this trip!
This was spectacular. The walk back up was somewhat challenging I would definitely do it again
We had a great time on the zip lines and enjoyed our walk on the island. So beautiful!
fantastic day even the bad weather did not spoil it and the two guides were just great
amazing!! The tour guides were amazing and the experience was fantastic! We have been talking about it none stop since we've returned! Defiantly going back again! Loved every minute of it!!
Very good and well supervised; was impressed with the safety precautions and the instructions given by the staff. Exciting and enjoyed it very much,
Fantastic day out even if you are not too keen on heights. Went 50 km an hour 50m above the ground over trees - tremendous fun!
the tour was awesome. could of done another round of zipping, and the bush walk was amazing, the guides were excellent. A most to do!
If you're looking for a way to escape the hustle and bustle of Auckland, Waiheke Island is a must-do! The views for the zipline were outstanding. You get to go 3 times, with each zipline more fun than the previous. The nature hike was a fun addition to the experience. The guides are really well educated about the NZ bush. Note though that the nature hike is up-hill, so definitely make sure you're wearing good walking shoes. Plus, you might get a bit muddy! Overall I would highly recommend!
You guys are so so professional, you take away any of the anticipation and let your customers enjoy the full experience from go to woah!!! Brilliant concept, excellently executed and totally enjoyable. Have and will continue to recommend this adventure to fellow Aussie travellers. "godd Job!!!"
The staff made the trip everything and more. If you want to go fast this is the trip for you. Bye the way my 83 year old mom went with me, she had a better time than I did.
Tour was very well organized. We were picked up when and where we were supposed to be and taken immediately to the Zipline area. Great afternoon!
The zip ride was incredible, what they don't tell you is there is a VERY long and tiring climb back to the top of the canyon. It was a beautiful bush walk but not for the inexperienced hiker or people with leg, knee and ankle issues. The guides were wonderful though.
Staff was excellent and understanding. Didnt show up for my original booking date and they obliged by moving me to next day. In all a great experience.
My daughter and I really enjoyed the trip, ziplining through beautiful vistas and the walking tour was breath taking, we wanted to do it again. Johnny and Morgan are the greatest folks you will ever meet. They really took pride in what they do and treated as friends and not customers. We explored the island the rest of the day. This was well worth the trip.
This is a great tour from the ferry cruise out there to the ziplining to the hike back through the trees, it is a good trip!
the tour was very pleasant
Didt think I had to pay for ferry 38.00 extra
Zip lining was too small to be exciting runs too short
Everyone connected to Zip Ling crew were excellent though
