Such a prime tour!
Massively recommend this to any travelers looking to scope out the mountain, grab some epic views, take in the deeply entrenched Maori culture and understand more about the formation and events of this area.
The hike is well fun and not grossly challenging, just enough to get your heart rate up and make you feel alive.
The tour operators are ultra nice and provide a laid back, comfortable vibe for the crew and set a good energy.
The scree run into the crater is a highlight, too. Wicked fun and your shoes get pummeled with loose rocks. Best!
Get around this if you want an organic experience and want to plonk yourself amongst nature.

Your online write-up is totally inadequate and misrepresentative. This is a 750 foot elevation hike that involves a short distance of scrambling using hand-holds. There is also a 750 foot descent to the bottom of the crater through a steep scree field. All of this is on loose rock and stone under foot.
Shame on you!
