My friend and I did the Taste of Taupo trip and enjoyed it very much. We took in the Huka Halls, Town, Lake and Craters of the Moon. It was a lovely overview of Taupo, and being in a helicopter is amazing.

How long is the flight? Or if there are different times available and costs I would be grateful to know. We are coming into Napier on 20 February and I was hoping to come up to Lake Taupo. I believe it is about 2 hours drive.
