I really liked this walk although found it a bit expansive for what it was. The views were good and the tower that you climbed but I found the cost a bit steep for what it was.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you and your friend enjoyed the walk, as you said it is very different from walking among the trees at ground level. The big Ferns are amazing looking down on them from above.
