A fantastic afternoon. Skipper was great. Watching him trim the sails and be sped along by the wind made it all the better, so glad it wasn't a motor boat. The carvings are what you sent the pictures but, as always, better in real life. The skipper's commentary made it interesting, amusing and fresh, even though he must have said it thousands of times! A great experience, helped by beautiful weather, we even got to have a swim in the beautiful water from the yacht.

Had a really great trip out to see the Maori carvings. Beautifully smooth cruise on a sunny late afternoon. There was a choice of lower and upper decks with us preferring the lower deck, sitting inside but able to venture outside to take photos. We used this fully to take photos of the beautiful surroundings and the carvings. Drinks were available making for a pleasant trip. Wonderful value.

Massive experience, 1st time being on a boat, loved every bit of the cruise, the people were absolutely amazing, my children enjoyed themselves, they even got to search the cruise boat to try and find stickers, the carvings were just so beautiful, me and my family really loved it and would do it again when in Taupo next.

Great tour of the lake and great views of the Māori rock carvings. I appreciated that they took the time to ensure that we got multiple opportunities to see the carvings close up. Muffins were delicious too!

We did this trip a few years back when Mum was still alive and decided to do it again since we were in taupo for a couple of days.... only 4 of thanks to COVID-19 but the guides more than made up for that
