Perfect solution to doing the Tongariro crossing from Taupo. Early pick up was cool, buses were comfy and Daz was awesome. Aircon on the bus was just what I needed for a deep sleep on the way back to Taupo.
Trip Advisor Review - February 15, 2018
The shuttle was on time to pick us up from the hotel. It was a small, comfortable, clean, and air conditioned bus.
The driver gave us heads up, discussed the weather, and cracked a few jokes. After the hike, we were picked up and shuttled back to the hotel.
"No drama, very reliable"
We will collect your from your accommodation or the local iSite within the Taupo township and transport you to the start of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing.
You then do the hard part - hiking 19.4km up and over the very beautiful Mt Tongariro - including getting up close and personal with towering Mt Ngauruhoe (or Mt Doom in the Lord of the Rings trilogy!).
At the end of the track you will find us waiting for you to take you back to your accommodation - tired but very satisfied with your day.
