    Stunning from start to finish.
    This was the third walk I did this month after the Heaphy and Rakiura tracks. All Very different and offering different landscapes and challenges. This was absolutely delightful and charming.
    The accomodation was unique, quirky, clean and comfortable with everything you need and options for all types of traveller.
    The walk itself offered stunning views, beautiful bush, waterfalls, swimming holes, long comfortable stretches and a few challenges and uphill climbs, all the wildlife and farmlife to satisfy every interest.
    Can not recommend this walk highly enough. Perfect for a two or three day hiking option in a stunning part of the country free of crowds and busy walkways.

    There s plenty of exhibits which were easily viewable. Everton was well explored and it would take more than one visit to read it all. Our daughters who are young teens loved the place and had fun exploring. Would visit again.

    Loved it! The wine tasting was so so generous and we had Olivia talking us through them all with her vast knowledge of the wines and the Pegasus brand. We had a lovely walk through the garden after and then stopped in a few other Waipara vineyards. We would highly recommend this as a stop and will 100% be back!

    This museum at Okains Bay is so remote it’s hard to believe the collection. For Americans, think of the Smithsonian collection of priceless pieces in someone’s garage, out in the country. Really, this collection should be in a National museum. The most amazing Māori collection displayed in the casual understated way, that makes it even more incredible

    My grandson and I needed a couple of hours to see all the displays......many are works of love and passion which must have taken weeks and months to build. Thoroughly enjoyed it all. There is so much to reminisce over. Displayed beautifully. Make this a must see on your Christchurch visit, with or without the kids.

    My wife and I did the Archery and Air Rifle shooting, both were great fun. We will be back to do the Clay shooting. The activities are well instructed so even beginners like us can get into them and enjoy. Would highly recommend if your at terrace Downs or in the area to give this a go.

    We spent an awesome evening with Chris and his horses Magic, Big Red, Shadow and Memphis. This is by far the best horse trek around. Chris gauges your ability and confidence level then helps you ride to the best of your ability. Awesome way to spend a summers eve 💕

    We were a group pf three over 60's and we had a great time. Graeme made sure we were capable and comfortable on the units before we set off and he didn't just pressure us in any way. We had a fantastic tour of the city seeing places that we don't believe we could have covered any other way. Graeme gave us a running commentary and a very full tour. Well worth every cent.

    We did the "Into the dark" room as a family and it was amazing! The room was engaging, immersive and challenging without being frustrating. We loved doing it in the dark - it added a fresh spin having to feel our way around the room and yell out what we found to our team. The clues were original and fun and the staff were friendly and flexible. Highly recommended!

    Great family fun, frustrating and rewarding at the same time. Lots of chatting, laughs and celebrations. Proud of ourselves 😁

    The head massage. Most definitely the best ever. I could have had that all day. Really relaxing. Pressure was perfect. Peaceful with no talking. Just bliss.

    MOLESWORTH STATION.. A dream of a life time to take a journey through a high country farming environment. Mark had a great amount of knowledge/history about Molesworth and made the whole trip very enjoyable. Morning tea at Acheron House was a welcome stop and then onto a yummy lunch at Molesworth Farm Homestead location. We really enjoyed our day and recommend you take this journey through a special part o New Zealand.

    Fantastic 2 day ride. Awesome tracks with a selection of tricky climbs and "mini enduro" sections as well as high speed runs. Weather was fabulous which certainly helped. Grenville's guidance was flawless and had an excellent read on the various riders' abilities. Can't fault it.
