    Super friendly drivers :)

    The service was great and drivers are friendly. But my shuttle got canceled twice before. I called them with accident in the evening. After I called them next day. The office lady let me changed, but after a while she used her own phone number to call me back, told me I called her last night was very very very rude. I understood I did mistake, even I kept apologizing she still warned me on phone at least two minutes. The worst customer service I’ve experienced in my life. Should wrote online to tell people “DO NOT CALL AFTER 4PM”. If customers made mistake should inform them by nicer way, not warning by rude way and hung up phone.

    Always 2 sides to every story. calling after 10pm at night is not acceptable (and it was very late to go organising something that you could've done earlier), and demanding change.

    Great service!

    The bus arrived on time to pick me up from my hostel and we were given good advice before starting the hike along with an information leaflet. After an amazing 6 hours of hiking, I had a short rest before the 2.30pm bus back to Taupo. We were given ice lollies and offered water, plus everyone got dropped back at their accommodation.
