Charming introduction to the area
May 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The guide was really knowledgeable. He was also friendly, relaxed and fun to be with for our tour. Our group of three were the only people on the tour and the guide took things at our pace, never rushing us and being happy to answer questions and explain things on the way. I have walked a lot in the NZ bush but I think I learnt more on this trip than I ever have before. We got to see a kiwi den which was great. The trip was a great introduction to the area. We all enjoyed the tour and recommend this to all those for whom going on the kayaks is a bit too much like hard work!
