RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
Discover a beautiful hidden gem in the North Island as you ride along the most popular section of the Hauraki Rail Trail. Follow an easy cycle path through the nature-rich Karangahake Gorge to the historic township of Waihi. Includes lunch and transfers to and from the trail.
Your day begins with a scenic drive through verdant rural landscapes from Auckland city to Paeroa, where the most popular section of the Hauraki Rail Trail starts. After a safety briefing, you'll be sent off on your two-wheeled adventure, beginning through the wonder-filled Karangahake Gorge, brimming with native bush, rivers, waterfalls and wildlife. Visit Paeroa, home to New Zealand's famous soft drink, L&P, and the Waikino Station. The riding ends in the quaint township of Waihi, once a boom town during the country's gold rush. Take some time to explore the village, visiting local gold-mining attractions and learning the stories of men who made and lost their fortunes, before enjoying lunch at the Waihi Cafe. You'll then meet your driver and be transferred back to Auckland city.
Transfers to and from their base in Wyndham St are not included; available on request for an additional fee.
