I fully enjoyed this tour despite the weather. I learnt heaps about the history and rare plants in this forest from the very knowledgeable tour guide Cliff. We even got hot tea and biscuits in the midst of the river bed!

It was an amazing day with all gear that was needed fully supplied as part of the deal - if needed ie boots wet weather gear. I cant believe that one man could hold such interesting indepth glacial, bushcraft and local knowledge. Then deliver it back to our group in such a fun way. We as a family thoroughly enjoyed our adventures off the beaten path even though the weather was against us in the early part. We really had the most fantastic day and are eager to come back and enjoy more adventures with Cliff and the awesome team, we seriously cant recommend them enough.

A must visit because in time, it'll be gone. David was very knowledgeable and helpful and the off track time added to the experience.

Fantastic guided walk with David - we had an awesome time. David was so informative and we learnt so much. Also enjoyed his great sense of humour. The walk included coffee and biscuits which was a lovely surprise and we enjoyed this while enjoying the fabulous view. Highly recommend this trip. 😊👍
