Such a privilege to be given an insight into the rich Maori culture and to sample the wealth of natural treasures. It was made all the more intimate by going at dusk and into the night. I would recommend it to all.

We were picked up from our accommodation and taken to the forest along with 8 other people. The guide was knowledgable and made the walk fun, as well as respectful to the environment. The sight of the kodi trees is truly awesome. They are more...More
