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.

    Wow ….. just ….. Wow!!
    From start to finish the Queen Charlotte Track guided walk was just awesome!
    Fantastic, breathtaking scenery all along the track, accompanied by a great group of walkers, fabulous food and drink, outstanding accommodation (Furneaux Lodge was by far the best!) and definitely not forgetting to mention Jake, our guide.
    Jake’s enthusiasm was infectious. Throughout the 4 days he was exceptional - any questions asked were answered promptly in full detail with the addition of descriptive interesting facts or information, stories and often humour.

    Jake’s engagement / relationship with each member of the walking party was professional, yet thoughtful and caring.
    Jake was an outstanding guide who encouraged everyone to keep going each day, especially when the paths were a little ‘challenging’ !!
    Gary and I would not hesitate to recommend Wilderness Guides - we have made so many unforgettable memories on the Queen Charlotte Track and hope to come back one day to do it all again !!

    Beautiful part of the world. Regardless of how you see the Sounds, by the ferry, walking or would recommend by Kayak. Dolphins swimming in the sounds.

    This is a must-see when you are in Picton. The museum has interesting stories and artifacts but the fact that you can actually walk on the ship was pretty amazing.

    Efficient water taxi service over to the nature reserve. However the helm could do with some lessons on how to moor up as he appeared to make a bit of a meal of it in both directions!!

    The reserve its self is lovely however could do with better signage so you know how far around the loop walk you are. I.e. can you stop and enjoy the view verses need to crack on and hey around!
