  • 5The Waiheke Island Ziplines & Forest Walk Tour was great. Guides were passionate about their roles. After doing the Ziplines, the short trek back to HQ was great too. Thanks for the experience! It was a perfect way to kick start my New Zealand experience.

  • 5For a quick half-day tour, it was a great way to get out and enjoy the sites aroumd Waiheki and scout for good wineries. The folks at Eco-Zip were amazing and attentive to our questions. The zip-lining itself was good fun (only couple there) and we learned a lot about the plant life on our walk back to base camp. Afterwards, the eco-zip emploeeys recommended a great winery (Cable Bay) where we had some dinner and wine. All in all, a great time was had.
