I remember doing this it was amazing. I can't remember but I think I mightve had someone named Olivia do ours. She carried most of our packs since we were probably ill equipped. Anyways it was pretty cool and my sister wouldnt have been able to do it without Olivia

We had already finished our Tongariro Alpine Crossing on 3 April 2021. We are a group of 4, with different ages and hiking experiences. We did research, physical training before the trip. However, we strongly believed that a guided walk is the smartest decision we made. We are so glad to have an excellent service provided by Terry Blumhardt. Before the crossing, Terry replied to our inquiries promptly with clear instruction & information. On the day of the walk, Terry is our guide who demonstrated his expertise to ensure our safety. With his advice, guidance, and support, we were going through the tough moment safely with confidence. In the end, we found that we learned more about Tongariro from him and the crossing is so unforgettable for us. Honestly, Tongariro Alpine Crossing is quite physically challenging for any one of us, we highly recommended having a professional guide and Terry’s team is no doubt the only option.

We had a fantastic experience!! We were guided by Terry Blumhardt. He was amazing!! Looked after us and our group of 8 so we’ll. Always checking in us helping us get through the tough parts because there are hard parts😀 showed us how to get down the slippery slopes by the lakes. Can’t thank him enough for looking after us so well and helping us to have an amazing experience Would definitely recommend 👍

Stunning varied alpine terrain made this crossing a beautiful challenge for a mature couple of urban walkers ; it has to be up there as a pinnacle experience. The tour guide's professionalism and local knowledge on everything was priceless and we knew we were in the best hands.

It was so good we did it a 2nd time. Once in the summer and then in the winter. Having a guide is the best way to do this. All the logistics are taken care of down to the boots/clothing/polls, all transport was put on door-to-door. From the end of the trail, it was only 20min back to River Birches. It is great to get to learn about the myths/legends/spirituality plus geological and historical aspects. Plus the guide made it feel safe as things can change quickly in the alpine informant. We are looking forward to going guided once again.
