Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It has great views and a great steady walkway as well as a tower to climb for surrounding views. You can get a cheaper price on Bookme or pay the full price at the entrance, there is a cafe souvenir shop, and a toilet on-site as well as ample car parking even for campervans or buses. It is only a 15 to 20-minute drive south of Hokitika. The walk to the beginning of the walk is uphill on a gravel road but if this is too much then a shuttle is available on asking for both directions. The staff are friendly and helpful and provide service with a smile.

Highly recommended and coming from a couple scared of heights, this is saying something! We felt safe throughout the walk and even climbed the tower to get a better view of the landscape.

Amazing views seen over the tree tops, and information display boards on the trees at each stopping point.

We were lucky to go on a stunning blue skies day, and there were only a few other tourists, as we entered around 9am.

And really suggest you stop for lunch at the cafe, as we had the best lunch of our trip there and prices of the food and souvenirs were not inflated as you normally expect at these tourist sites. The staff were also really lovely and welcoming and we will definitely visit here again when on the West Coast .

We reallly enjoyed it I am a little scared of heights but even then could appreciate what I was seeing, you really are in the treetops looking down into a valley way below. Would highly recommend a stop here if you are in the region, they also have a good cafe on site.

Good for familys

Wasn't impressed by the online 10% discount ($3.20) which was then eroded by a 50c booking fee - might be legal but I felt it was misleading. Not too many people there when I arrived, which was just as well, as the cafe and ticket till were next to each other so the queues for each got very confused and entangled. Free umbrellas sounded like a good idea but juggling umbrella, phone and reading the guide was a pain on the narrow walkways. I don't often get an attack of vertigo but the walkway provoked one with it's wobble and see-through metal grill; I definitely wouldn't recommend this for anyone even slightly nervous of heights. I'm sure the views are fantastic on a clear sunny day but I prefer looking at the tree tops from terra firma of the valley side or the base of the trees themselves.

Just south of Hokitika. The entrance fee of $32 is overpriced, a more realistic price would be $20. It is approx a 5 minute walk from the cafe to the start of the tree top walk which is 20 metres above the canopy, there is also a 47 metre tower you can climb with good views over the lake and surrounding Bush. The walk can take between 30 - 40 minutes depending on photo ops.

We arrived at the Tree top Cafe at 12 minutes past three today (20th July 2020) to be greeted by the hostess as we opened the front door with "Can I help you?". We stepped in and asked for a cup of tea and something to eat. The food display cabinet was full of prepared food and a basket of scones sat next to the cash register, along with another i/2 price scones at the side of the food display sign, presumably yesterdays left overs. We were informed that we could order a drink but no food was available. We said that something out of the display cabinet would be great but told again food was no longer available due to the kitchen closing at 3pm. We reiterated the prepared food on display would be great and again was told the kitchen was closed only drinks available. We asked about a scone with our tea, but no - "no food after 3 but we could order a drink".
We were not asking for the chef to make something for us, just wanted refreshment from cabinet or at least a scone to eat. Not possible.
It was like a 'Monty Python' or 'Faulty Towers' skit - a counter assistant determined not to sell the food on display and three puzzled clients.
We left unhappy at the rude and unhelpful service and drove back into Hokitika to buy the delicious fish and chips at Porkies Fish & Chip shop (opposite info centre) and went and sat at the beach to eat them.
We live 100km north of the Tree Top Walk Experience and had come to visit the attraction, have afternoon tea to celebrate my birthday and experience the walk so we could return with visitors to share another West Coast adventure.
That will not be happening now as I would not wish to subject anyone else to such rudeness.
Dorothy Falls (near by at the side of Lake Kaniere) and a home made picnic will be the much preferred option.

I have spoken to the staff that was on the day you came out. From what I can gather I think there was a misunderstanding around the Chef saying the kitchen was closed. The girl on the front counter is new and didn't realise that that only meant cooked food from the menu. If the cabinet food is still in the cabinet then it is definitely still for sale. The basket you sure on the counter that said dated stock 50% off wasn't scones it was power bars that were out of date. We never ever sell day old scones at 50% off. I was away on leave at the time of your visit but i have checked back on the cameras to make sure no one had put scones in the basket. I'm so sorry for your bad experience if you would like to contact me on 03 755 5052 Tuesday to Saturday ask for Vonnie I would like to invite you back.

Quite expensive for what it is. $32 for an adult! View wasn't spectacular or anything.
We tried to have lunch first but all the tables were full, so we asked to reserve a table for when we finish the walk. Also asked to order the food first, so when we come back we can eat straight away but it was refused.
When we came back from the walk, our table wasn't ready, it was not even reserved as promised. We had to wait a further 10min to get a table, and had to wait another 30min to wait to get food cooked.

If we could order food before the walk, the walk took an exact 30min and it would have been perfect. Food was beautiful at least to make up the experience.

We have just come back from a wonderful morning at Tree tops. The views above the trees and over to the Alps were stunning and listening to the bird calls was great. They even provide transport to the walkway for those who are unable to walk up to the start. It provided a great amount of information on the forest and fauna as well as the birds found flying below you.
The café has great food at a reasonable price and with a open area for children to play while you are eating. They also have numerous children's toys there for the young ones to play with.

This is one place you should not miss when travelling the beautiful Westcoast.

Amazing structure the walk was incredible but not for anyone who is scared of heights. Service at the Cafe was pretty rubbish. Our coffees and one food item came quickly but they forgot my partners pasties. When we asked for it after 30 minutes the serving girl was super rude and unacceptable attitude, refusing to help. How hard is it to out a pie in a bag so.we could go, we had paid already. Such a hot day. But other than that bad experience the tree top walk was great.

Fun thing to do with the family. Interesting facts at each point. Our time there was a bit spoiled by a large tourist group that was very loud and pushy/rude (about 40 people). Also made climbing the stairs to the top point very squishy. Apart from that, we had a wonderful time. Well worth the time!!!
