        Caving and boulder adventure
        Great way to experience your first cave. Weather was great especially given the amount of water to trek though. Guide was knowledgeable and flexible. The rock garden was also great for the looking for a place to explore and even boulder.

        It was a geat tour- Castlehill
        Everything was just perfect. This is not an exaggeration. The sunny weather, huge rocks on the hill(I kept saying “WOW”), the kind, informative guide, and the delicious lunch, so what else do you need other than these? It was one of “the best” tours I’ve ever had :)

        Magical Day in the Sun
        Nathaniel was a splendid guide, a fount of knowledge, a provider of delicious food and a careful driver. The highlight of my trip to Christchurch was Castle Hill and the spectacular rock formations. If you have the chance, put this tour at the top of your list.

        Perfect challenge
        Nathaniel was a great guide for my boys and I. We all had a good and challenging time climbing. The weather was great for us, we couldn’t have asked for a better day.

        I had so much fun on my Cave stream and Castle hill tour!
        We had an amazing day, with fabulous views of the mountains and local scenery. We thoroughly enjoyed the rocks at castle hill and the beautiful cave stream. Our guide, Alan was fantastic and made our time exploring around Christchurch so much more enjoyable and educational. We've come out with way more knowledge of the local area and such a fun and enjoyable experience. The pick up and drop off to our hotel really topped off the day. Thanks so much Adventure by nature we had an awesome time!

        Fab intro to sport climbing
        We had a fantastic day out with Alan, climbing various crags with great views over Christchurch/New Brighton. It was a great luxury to be collected and dropped off again from our accommodation and the routes and type of climbing we did was adjusted to suit our ability and aims. As we have only limited experience of sport climbing it was great to learn the basics and more from a pro.

        Had a wonderful day with my guide Joey on an Adventure by Nature private walking tour from Christchurch to Godley Head
        My husband and I had booked a 2 person tour on Feb.5th. Unfortunately due to illness, my husband had to cancel last minute. Joey my guide carried on as planned, introducing me to the sites in Lyttelton and making planned stops at a local bakery to purchase lunch and a second coffee shop for a special morning brew. Joey had a great knowledge of the area and was a great conversationalist. We walked the Godley Head path (part of it is still closed due to the identification of asbestos in the military buildings on route), stopped to enjoy our lunch at a quaint little beach, and had time to dip our toes in at a different beach before heading back to the hotel. The Godley Head path was super easy to navigate (Joey wore sandals), the views were great and the weather cooperated. As an aside, there were bathrooms at the start of the trip but the ones enroute were locked. We were able to complete the Godley head walk ahead of schedule and so he offered to make an additional stop and take me to the Christchurch Botanical gardens for a look around. I was thrilled with this as I had very little time to explore Christchurch outside of the scheduled tour. All in all, it was a really enjoyable day thanks to Joey at Adventure by Nature!

        Nice day trip
        We really enjoyed our experience with our tour guide Sarah. She was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. She really helped us see the areas of Littleton and Christchurch that we felt were important to see. Good snacks, bouldering, and photography. Great day overall, thanks !

        Great trip to Castle Rock
        We had a great time today (2/11/22)in spite of the rain. Robbie our guide was great at keeping things going, including providing us with raincoats , which made it easier to walk around the boulders in the pouring rain 😃. Explained everything on the way and kept the conversation lively which must have been quite difficult when there are only two passengers. Also thanks to Alan for keeping us in the loop about the weather and continuing with the tour for just two people. Absolutely great team. Good trip too, slightly marred by the rain but still enjoyable. Great photo opportunities in good light. Rajesh

        Awesome Day of Climbing
        I had the best day climbing with Arna in the Port Hills. It was my first time climbing outdoors and I had so much fun. Arna helped me feel comfortable on the rock and gave me some good pointers for improving my technique. There are lots of different grades of climbing at the crag so there is definitely a climb for everyone of all abilities. I even got to have a go at abseiling! Thanks so much for such a great day!

        Must-Do Adventure
        Amazing trip to Castle Hill/Kura Tawhiti and Cave Stream. My guide, Robbie, was very knowledgeable and friendly and tailored the tour to suit my interests. I had a great day walking around the boulder fields, trying some bouldering, and making my way through Cave Stream's underground river and waterfalls. Highly recommend. Thanks so much for an awesome day!

        Best Tour Guide Ever
        Mike gave us what we both described as the best tour we have ever been on, and we have been on a lot of tours. Pick up was a breeze, and he was a great driver. He was very knowledgeable about the hike, and provided great guidance on how to follow the multiple paths around Castle Hill. The stop at the pie shop was perfect, and lunch was delicious, especially after the long hike. He took excellent photos of us that we would not have been able to capture otherwise. He is a great conversationalist, and taught us not just about where we were but New Zealand and its history in general. We would highly recommend this tour and this touring company, and we would book with them again.

      This was an absolutely wonderful experience, easily the best of our trip to Christchurch. During our vacations we always like to get out and do some more adventurous experiences that have a physical component, hiking, paddling, etc. and this 100% fit the bill. The views were wonderful and our guide Nate was just a wealth of information about the area, wildlife, and history. Everything about the experience was so professional and just made us want to explore more of what they have to offer. I highly recommend reaching out on you next trip to Christchurch.

      Very nice Sea-kayaking in charteris bay.
      Sarah who was our instructor was very kind and friendly. I started as a beginner. But with her kind instruction, had no problem doing kayaking whole day. I highly recommend this course for anyone who would like to adventure Governors bay and charteris bay.
