I would like to know the details of Go Wire package, does it involve bridge cross? I and my fiancé is going to wanaka on end of October, we are not adventurous type but would like to try something light adventurous, is this suitable for us? We would like to experience hanging bridge and frying fog but not like to do rock climbing as it is a bit tough for us.
