Just completed the 3 day Tongariro northern circuit with this company. Amazing, informative, fun guides that kept you going on the uphills when the end just never seemed to be in sight. 2nd time with them would use them again.

A most spectacular hike. We approached Tongariro across spectacular terrain. Lava, the Devil's staircase. (Better than the Devil's scree slope like in the past) A flat basin before climbing the mountain. Views from the top of a spectacularly red canyon and iridescent blue and aqua...More

Our 3 guides ensured each person could move at their own pace. So they were constantly moving back and forth checking on the fastest and the slowest of our 13-person group. The food was excellent - especially the eggs Benedict breakfast. The information/stories they told...More
