The Tongariro National Park is New Zealand's oldest national park and a dual World Heritage Site. It is rich in both cultural history and superb natural volcanic scenery. The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is described as one of New Zealands best one day hikes. Seeing the major volcanic peaks of Ngauruhoe, Tongariro and Ruapehu ensure the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is considered a world-renowned track. The full 19.4km track requires transport to and from a local licensed operator or you can park in the car park for 4 hours if you are only going part of the way. Take warm weather gear as the weather changes quickly. The walk now has New Zealand Great Walks status.
We were picked up promptly from the terminal at Auckland airport and taken to the dept to collect our car. We were dealt with efficiently and friendly by the receptionist and within no time at all we were in our way. The car was very clean and in good condition. On our return again we were dealt with by the staff in a friendly and professional manner. I would definitely book with Ezi Car again.Brian Bradford
