Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

To choose the 3 day tour with you and Kim as a guide was the best I could do. Perfect Organisation, very good accommodation, very, very nice food. Absolute recommandable.

Seven days of outstanding accommodation with spectacular views and gourmet meals prepared by private chefs on this Coastal Charm tour. Hikes ranged from easy to challenging but all totally enjoyable. Our guide, Robyn was the best you could hope for, with expert local knowledge and was mindful to all our requirements. You couldn’t ask for more! Highly recommend this trip for all who enjoy hiking ( some challenging) and a great food experience!

The Coastal Charm tour absolutely exceeded my expectations! A wonderfully curated adventure with the perfect balance of Nature and Nosh. Hikes were manageable for a wide range of fitness levels and walking experience. Having a private chef was a real treat. Our guide Kim took such good care of us. 100% would recommend!

Where do we even begin? My sister and I decided we needed to hike during our NZ trip and searched online for what we could do. We saw the 3 Day Coastal Charm Taster Tour and thought, 'hey, that sounds interesting, let's give it a go!' We are very glad we did. Even my sister, who has a fear of heights, is happy that we tried this tour and had this unforgettable experience. The sights were something to behold, the hikes were a great time, the accommodation was just lovely (we even got up early to watch the sunrise!) and the food was absolutely scrumptious. The first night, a chef cooked a yummy meal that we all got to enjoy at the accommodation. And the second night had us gin-tasting with good food at a nearby gin brewery. The last day we got to see the inner workings of a macadamia farm (and buy some tasty macadamias!) Lastly, we have to mention the people—what a great group we got to spend three days with. The conversations came easy and everyone was friendly. We will both remember this tour for a long time (and we definitely have a whole lot of photos to commemorate the experience!) Thanks for looking after us during the trip, it was a great way to start our time in NZ!

Recommended to foodies, hikers, lovers of nature, or anyone wanting to try something new!

We were finally able to join Nature & Nosh for the Coastal Charm Classic tour after two years of pandemic delay. We were part of a particularly small group towards the end of the season, led by Kim, who deserves the praise in all the reviews. She was attentive, knowledgeable, and filled us all with joy and laughter.

The website descriptions are detailed and accurate. The hiking is less difficult than Abel Tasman, Routeburn, or Milford Tracks. The itinerary is set up to alternate easier days with longer and more strenuous walks. Kim made adjustments to fit the abilities of our group. (We got to the Pinnacles Hut but unanimously voted not to attempt the final fearsome 45 minutes to the top.) Some trails were unavailable after the cyclone that had roared thru Coromandel and Auckland a few months before. Kylie and Kim came up with creative alternatives which gave us the same quality of trails and stunning views.

Lodgings were in amazing locations, overlooking bays or the ocean, truly luxurious feeling. Meals ranged from a dinner prepared by a private chef that was a trip highlight, to mussel fritters fresh from the ocean and delicious home-cooked breakfasts prepared by our hosts.

The activities and side trips were wonderful! We ate chocolate covered nuts at a macadamia farm and tasted gin at an award-winning distillery. You will definitely not forget the meal prepared by Mamakan, a Danish “botanical artist,” at her farm devoted to native New Zealand plants and trees.

New Zealand is a wonderful place to visit, and the Nature & Nosh tour was the highlight of our trip around the country. Highly recommended. Thanks, Kylie! Thanks, Kim!

The stunning scenery at every turn, paired with amazing foodie adventures and animal encounters ticked a lot of boxes for us. The macadamia farm was brilliant and the food foraging with a meditation in the forest was so special. Our guide was so knowledgeable and we connected with complete strangers who are now forever friends! Laughter all week and superb weather topped it off. Thank you to Kylie from Nature N Nosh and her guide Kim for an excellent week.

Fantastic experience with meticulous organisation by owner Kylie, she has found the best not well know walks and she also seems to know the best places to eat and taste food! Our guide Kim was so lovely, hardworking and organised, the whole tour was a seamless experience! If you want to just book the tour then enjoy, this is the tour for you, we loved the hikes and the food and can't wait to go backhand do more, thanks so much Nature and Nosh

From first booking, Kylie, was extremely well organised and good at communicating. This was a fabulous day with a steep walk up to a stunning waterfall and then onwards to a real spread for lunch at Blue Springs. The day was topped off with cheese tasting at Over the Moon cheeses and drinks tasting at the organic blueberry farm. The day ran like clockwork and entertained all ages - highly recommended. Thank you , Kylie.

Fabulous hiking on the Coromandel Peninsula. Our guide Kim was so creative selecting excellent hikes even though the unusual rain in the aftermath of cyclone Hale had left many roads and tracks impassible. Our trip was near the end of the rains, and we had three full days of incredible hikes in magnificent scenery almost all conducted in dry and sunny weather. Kim found replacement tracks for the ones closed and sorted out how to drive to the start of those that were safely passible. Fine BnB with lovely hosts, excellent wine, and good company. We were visiting from the USA for the first time and we had an excellent first look at New Zealand.
