Best shuttle and experience
Angela_R
, Apr 2021
The best decision we made using this shuttle. Genuine local people that gave information and history of the area. Fantastic communication at all times. Beautiful to have a local give us the karakia at the start and finish and lovely to know part of the money is going back into maintining that national park. 10/10

The crossing itself was difficult but what an experience of a lifetime!! Backyard Tours themselves were absolutely fantastic! The friendliness and knowledge and history of the area was incredible! The time to transport us to the base of the volcano almost went too fast because we are enjoying listening to the history of the people and the area so much! Great tour company with fantastic people😀

Thank you Andy for your great review! To hear your feedback is exactly why we do what we do in love of our Culture and region to sharing with you our visitors. Making memories of a lifetime with your transport before and after your hiking volcanic excursion over the Tongariro Alpine Crossing which is challenging and not an easy walk in the Park. Again Thank you and all the best from us Backyard Tours family.

Drivers were good fun and informative and were also prompt. They drove carefully. The Maori prayer at the beginning and end was welcome. The free drink at the end hit the spot.

Thank you Ken for your kind words of review! Your customer satisfaction is our aim. We are pleased to hear your amazing feedback of our Cultural blessings once at the trail start and of course receiving the deserving cold drink at the trail end. Appreciate from us Backyard Tours Team.

Very good transport service

We used this service for our Tongariro Crossing. We were a group of 7 and the bus driver picked us up exactly on time from the address we provided (AirBnb). He had some interesting stories to tell during the trip and on the return - we received free cold beverage (we chose beer). No complains at all, really good service.

Gloria and Brendan made sure that our alpine crossing was a walk in the park! We had plenty of good communication from BackYard Tours even to the point that Gloria suggested bringing our departure forward by an hour to avoid a thunderstorm, and she was spot on. All in all a great experience.

Thank you Alistair! We do our best for customer safety and customer experience. We acknowledge the little things that can make a huge difference. Thank you for your great kind words of review and for travelling with us Backyard Tours Brendan and Gloria :-)
