We did the sunrise guided tour and had an amazing time. The team were lovely, the pace was good and the sights simply breathtaking. The team provided appropriate shoes and equipment, were very friendly and informative, and made for a great experience. Highly recommended!

Sarah Cate is the best. Takes her clients abilities into account and took on us an amazing hike. Very knowledgeable about local flora and fauna and geology. Super friendly. Supplied hiking poles and carried tea / coffee / biscuits for all. Highly recommended.
