2hrs for me and my fiancée. Went through the easy trails. The Dipper and Tahi which were near enough to the shop (they were suggested by the friendly staff at hand). Had spare time so we tried another path and came across the mud pool and had a short go at a lvl4 track before

The staff were amazing!!!! Really patient and supportive. Highly recommend. Provided local information and extra leeway for time. They stayed open for us due traffic delays and didn't rush to leave. Thank you for an absolutely awesome weekend!

Great team who looked after us very well with our rental bikes. The trails are awesome and it’s so great to have all the gear you need right at head of the trails.

Three of us arrived at 2.30pm to hire three e bikes for 2 hours. We were told they closed at 4pm yet the website said 5pm. We asked about a 1 hour hire and were told you could but the price is the same as 2 hours. Mentioned they closed early due to Covid! We are in level 1!

Response from GrandTour02226454851, Manager at Half-Day Self-Guided Mountain Bike Journey through Whakarewarewa Redwood Forest
Responded 28 Oct 2020
Hi there, thanks for providing your feedback. Firstly I'd like to apologise for the confusion regarding our hours of operation. When we moved to a 4pm close we changed our listings on www.rotoruanz.com, our Google listing, and our own website. Unfortunately Tripadvisor was missed, and I've been through and changed those hours to match now. When we made the decision to shorten our hours following the first NZ-wide lockdown it was based on several factors, but most notably reduced traffic throughout the week based on lack of international or domestic travellers. While we've definitely seen improvement in the months following (thank you to all the fantastic Kiwis getting out and enjoying their own backyard!), we don't feel that it's the right time yet to move to longer operational hours. Our minimum hire length is 2 hours. We conduct a thorough setup, trail advice and safety briefing before the ride, and a comprehensive mechanical and safety check on the bikes before they can be used again, regardless of hire length. For this reason we don't offer discounts on shorter rides, even late in the day. Two hours is just barely enough time to scratch the surface of what's on offer in the forest, so we'd encourage anyone looking to ride to leave at least that much time to enjoy this wonderful place. I'm glad that despite the issues on the day you were able to head down the road and still have a great time in the forest. Again, apologies for the opening hours confusion, thank you for raising it. Cheers, Ben.
