We had read about this trip before we left home. It got great reviews which we can only endorse. It was an incredible experience! How many people can say they have walked on an active volcano?!
The company was very professional and staff extremely friendly and helpful, allowing us to change our booking depending on the weather, rang us when they said to confirm the times, The lunch pack was generous and tasty.
The boat trip was great and the guided walk on the island was amazing!! Most importantly, our guide Hayden was excellent, knowledgeable, informative and personable.
It was the highlight of our trip to NZ.

Awesome! Lots of dolphins on our 1.5 hour boat trip to White Island. Great experience to walk over an active volcano. Paradise to take photos! For $200 per person lunch should be better!

White Island was beautiful and the trip out there was too. We stopped two times to watch dolphins.

We had a good (was a bit seasick) time on the boat, while watching dolphins and on the island itself. The crew was very friendly and helpful and also the guide was pretty nice.

Amazing volcano in the middle of the ocean. The way in might be hard if the waves are big, but totally worth it. Guides are going fast but take time to enjoy.

Kinda expensive, which is the only down point to it. You definitely get a big package for the money. Walking the island felt pretty surreal, so cool! The team took good care and was really fun and you get a lunch package.

Pee Jay - White Island Tours responds:

Hi Luca, thank you for leaving a review. We're glad you agree that the tour is good value for money despite the cost.

Nice thing to do but quite expensive. Boat trip is really long but great chance to see dolphins (sometimes even whales).

Amazing nature with a nice little boat trip, but it was really expensive and our guide was talking in a bored way.
