Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Jenni and her merry crew made the 6 day guided tramp of the Heaphy Trail a great experience. It was a long, tough hike but she was well organized, a fantastic cheerleader, good cook and an excellent communicator/teacher of the natural beauty around us. The tour included transport to/from Nelson, meals, hut reservations and her awesome personal support on the track. We would walk with her again in a heartbeat!

We just finished a fabulous Heaphy Express with Jenni. So easy with transport, food and cooking arranged. The food was great and there was plenty of it-Jen’s cocoa butter and ginger sweets are a highlight! Take one of the mattress covers if you get a chance-and try and persuade her to start selling them. Jen was great-well organised, kind, patient, full of information and stories, and really good humoured.

Just completed the Old Ghost Road from Lyell to Seddonville (Rough & Tumble Lodge) with Jenni Kingston (owner of Kahurangi Guided Walks) and her team member Sophie. The track that has been built by the dedicated volunteers and now maintained by a Private Company is absolutely amazing!! Built mostly on an old Gold Mining track, this is for walkers and mountain bikers. The purpose built huts (which must be pre-booked) were great; very comfortable and as the weather was still mixed, the wood burners were very welcome. What really made this trip was the brilliant preparations and meals provided by Jenni - who would have thought we would be eating locally smoked hot salmon and a quinoa salad up in the wilds of Kahurangi National Park! Day after day Jenni magically produced delicious meals and snacks - her date treats to die for! Other travellers pouring hot water into travel meal sachets looked on in awe as we sat down to incredible food.
This was an amazing multi-day walk!

We had a wonderful 6 day trip with Jenni on the Old Ghost Rd. She and Peter carried and cooked all our food. We only had to bring our clothing. She has a passion for her work, but she’s not intrusive with her knowledge, nor overly ambitious with distances and time.
We’ve booked another trip with her next year, Covid permitting.
Btw, my husband and I are 68 years old, and aside from expected aches and pains, had absolutely no trouble with the terrain or the distance. If we had, Jenni would have pulled out her trusty first aid kit and Bob’s your uncle! :-)

The 5 day guided Heaphy Track walk with Jenni and her team was so rewarding. It is a beautiful slice of New Zealand with amazing bird life. Jenni made sure all we had to do was soak it in - and walk! Informative, patient, observant, kept us well fed, motivated and of course safe. It is great value and I thoroughly recommend it.

I can’t wait to walk the Old Ghost Road with her soon.

We walked the Old Ghost Road over 5 days, in a group of 6, with Toni and Dave as our guides. The track is well graded and the scenery absolutely stunning. We stayed in summer sleep outs, adjacent to the main huts which were cosy and private. The hut facilities were good with crockery and even filter coffee pots provided and an outside shower at two of the huts we stayed at.
Our guides were superb - knowledgeable and unfailingly helpful. The snacks and meals they made for us were home cooked, delicious, varied and nutritious. The pre walk information from Jenni was excellent.
All in all, this experience stands out as one of the best guided trips we have done and I highly recommend it.

We enjoyed so many aspects of this tramp in pristine wilderness including the pioneer history with artefacts still there to see as well as abundant natural features amidst spectacular scenery. Toni and Dave were excellent guides. The organisation was faultless, and Jenni’s many personal touches superb. Moderately difficult for us in our 70s but unforgettable.
