5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2008

I've never been quite the adventurous type so I was a little concerned about taking this trip however there was absolutely no need to worry as it looked much more difficult than what it was! I absolutely loved the challenge and felt so proud of myself when I completed it. I would LOVE to take this trip again. Absolute highlight of my trip to Rotorua.
