The Rangitoto Tour is the perfect way to visit that young volcanic island in a half-day. Although the 300 steps to the top is daunting for some, it is doable even at my age.

An interesting way to spend the afternoon. Information on the island given by 'train' driver very interesting. The view from the islands summit was well with the 300 steps to get up to it. Wasn't sure whether I would manage the steps but they are very gradual and not too hard at all.

Excellent experience. Highly recommended. Be sure to understand that to get to the top requires about 300 stairs. Although these are organized into many smaller groupings with relatively flat boardwalks in between, it is a tiring climb up. But, well worth the view from the top!

Great commentary from the guide. Recommend doing this as there was transport. You can walk around the island but you might risk missing the ferry. There are no shops on this island.

Great trip out to the island and a memorable and informative tractor ride around and up the mountain. Our guide was great. Relaxed and sociable drive. Plenty of time to observe the volcanic landscape and a good hour to walk to the top to see the crater and then the views from the summit. A good amount of information at the gun emplacements. Experience very much helped by the weather. Plenty of time for photos.

The guide was waiting right outside the pier, as advertised. The vehicle made me feel like it was a combo of a Disney train and the Little Engine That Could fun and quaint. The scenery was amazing, and the guide knew TONS to talk about I especially liked learning about the rehab of the island, and the oral Mauri tradition of seeing it explode out of the ocean. The hike up to the top of the island isn't overly hard, and the views from the top are astounding you can really tell why it was a lookout point in times of conflict. Note: make sure you leave yourself enough time at the Auckland Pier, to exchange your Viator trip printout coupon, for actual physical tickets. I got lucky, in that there was no line at the ticket counter but that could've easily been a 30-minute ordeal if there was a line-- which would've made me miss the ferry, because I arrived at the pier only 10 minutes prior to departure time.

Great volcano tour-Does not look like volcano from top but is. Great ride to steps, informative guide. Rough ride but nice if no back issues. There are bathrooms at bottom of volcano. Beautiful views from top and on way up. Nice place to visit - Glad I did it.

Tour exactly as described. There is a long hike up to the crater area, but worth the effort. Our driver was very knowledgable. The tram pulled by the tractor has NO suspension, so the ride is VERY bouncy.

Really enjoyed the tour. Very informative. The speaker did cut out a couple of times tho.

The island is preserved, which means volcanic rocks and trees all over the place. So the road until the summit is quite boring after 20 minutes, but the climbing of the summit is worth the trip. The views from the top and even during the climbing are just amazing, you really could believe you are in a postcard!!

The guide was really kind and funny as well.

I would definitely recommend it to everybody, it is not everyday that you have the chance to see something like that!!

It was OK. Island only pretty at beach rest is lava rocks and ride is soo dusty and uncomfortable. Walking up to see sights was nice. Maybe a closed in jeep would have been better. Don't know what could have been done.

This was interesting, but if probably would not highly recommend. Long ferry ride, then we got on a wagon and were hauled by a tractor. Interesting things along the way. The scenic views on the walk up and down were exactly what I expected New Zealand to look like. Special
