We took the one way shuttle at 7:30 a.m. There was apparently a problem with one of their buses that morning but they were able to squeeze us all into the two vans that they had there. In the confusion though they neglected to bring the walking poles along, which we were

Thank you for your great review. The walking poles are complimentary for the round trip user from Turangi transfer. One way transfers is difficult to monitor the return of the walking poles therefore not complimentary but at times we do waiver and hand them out. Just unfortunate at your time not available. We thank you for travelling with us Backyard Tours being an approved concessionaire that you too contribute to the Tongariro National Park infrastructure. We appreciate and thank you. Take care, be well, and be safe through this Global Pandemic, from us Backyard Tours family Gloria, Brendan and Breann.

Great experience! Happy to support this small business. Pick up was on time and it was super easy and convenient from where I was staying. We weren’t offered walking sticks, I wasn’t planning on using them but just a heads up! Would recommend as an affordable easy shuttle option

By far the best transport for the Tongariro Crossing. This was door-to-door. No waiting on a street corner for an old bus to pick us up. They used a nice minivan and provided a boutique and personal service. Our driver had a special spiritual connection to the mountain as his

Wonderful service!!! I have used transport shuttles for the crossing two other times and this service is by far the best! The commentary along the way about the Maori cultural significance of the area as we were driving along was certainly a bonus. The prayer and song at the end
