Completed this walk with Terry and it was fantastic, well the weather was rubbish but Terry was a excellent guide, knowledgeable and very well prepared. We would highly recommend him for any guided walks in the area, a real professional.

Tongariro Alpine Crossing is a challenging one-day hike in a very changeable climate on the North Island of New Zealand. I don't like the "big group" experience so chose Tongariro Guided Walks because they take only very small groups or individuals and are very safety...More
