Stacy at Ecozip was wonderful! Our reservation was for 1:45 trip but we were on a cruise and our all aboard was 5:30, it would have been a return at 5:45 if we keep our original reservation. Stacy moved up our reservation and walked us into an earlier group so we could make the 4:00 ferry and get back with time to spare. The views on each of the zip line runs was beautiful and never had a worry about the equipment. A plus experience, I would do it again! Love everything about Ecozip

It was an amazing experience to go on the zipline this time! We missed it 2 years ago on our trip here to New Zealand and we were determined to go back. It’s all worth it! The staff was equally friendly and helpful! This is something we will go back to when we go back here.

Fly above the top of the rain forest canopy then walk back to the top underneath the rain forest canopy so tranquil and beautiful.

Amazing zip lining and hike. The staff go above and beyond! My daughter is ten years old and said it was the best experience ever! We agree!

First time zipliner and I had high expectations, this tour did not disappoint. Walked from ferry to town center and had lunch, then took the high track back down to the ferry. Had a great day on Waiheke.

Great time was had by ALL including myself who is terrified at the thought of zip lining. The great guides made me feel safe and assured throughout the experience - including equipment safety checks before each flight. The last flight was the overall favorite of all. HIGHLY recommend to all levels of experience. The walk back was also fun and informative learning about the forest.

The zip lining was a fabulous way to experience some breathtaking views of the island and harbors below. Honey and Chook were great instructors and kept us safe while injecting humor into what we were doing. Would do again absolutely!

Fantastic fun! I will definately go back and do this again. I had so much fun doing the different zip lines, then a not too strenuous walk back to the top. Highly recommend

Amazing experience! A great mix of adrenaline fun and a short nature walk to learn more about the preserved eco system on Waiheke Island. There are 3 zip lines in total and they all provide an exceptional view of the surrounding. I think the trip is of good value as well compare to other ziplining options in NZ. The driver picked me up from the ferry terminal and provided all of us a brief and interesting history of the island, our guides were friendly and professional and made sure everyone is safe and feels that way too. I also enjoyed the nature walk at the end, so many interesting facts and it's great to know how much the company and NZ is currently doing to preserve the environment.

This is such an awesome day trip, it's the most fun I have had ever! The zipline was so much fun, the instructors made me feel reassured and safe. You get picked up from the ferry terminal at the island and dropped where the zipline tour is. The zipline tour is approximately 2 hours and also includes a tour around the forest which was really nice. Worth the money!

So much fun! Zipline was great there are 3 lines but so was the nature walk afterwards.

Excellent experience. Not as thrilling as a bungee but it is definitely a good start for your adventure. Staff were good.

I love zip lines, so getting a course while traveling in NZ was a must. These are three short lines but over beautiful territory. That being said, the eco hike after the zip lines was the highlight! After the third line, you hike about a mile back to the start thru a forest of awesomeness. The guide, Honey, was wonderful. She stopped to explain and talk about almost every variety of trees, flowers, and birds. If this is not your thing, this may not be your tour. We were paired up with five young boys, which caused a bit of a distraction for the line guides, but still worth the experience. The pickup at the ferry was easy, and the driver told us and then drove us to an awesome place for lunch, Mudbrick. After a long lunch and wonderful wine we hiked thru the woods back to the ferry, which made the journey complete.

Fantastic experience with supportive and entertaining guides who took health and safety issues very seriously but established a great atmosphere of fun and enjoyment across the group, encouraging everyone individually to have a go and really enjoy the zipline!

This was my first zipline experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I particularly liked how each run was a little longer/steeper. The ladies guiding us through each run were professional and personable. The short talks during the walk back were well timed and informative.

Excellent half-day adventure! From the outstanding instructors to the magnificent views, this is a great way for anyone to get introduced to zip-lining. PLUS, the trial hike afterwards is fun as well.

This was so much fun. I am close to 70 years old, have had multiple joint replacements, and was afraid it would be too much for me but it was great . The staff there was very helpful and patient and made it a once in a lifetime experience

So much fun! This was my first zip-line experience and I was a bit nervous, but was put at ease immediately upon meeting our guides. They were kind, professional and informative! I felt very safe the entire time. The views were gorgeous and the forest walks between zip lines were very cool, as well. Definitely a highlight of our Auckland trip!
