Did the T20 trip for my birthday. A very relaxing day. The guides were very good and Tina was very informative giving a good insight into the rail and the history of the area. Finished the rail trip at Whangamomoma with a beer. Trip back the driver also kept us informed of area. Also found a painting on Trademe showing the trail which I bought as a reminder of trip

Brilliant time, loved the animals and scenery :) I would say to perhaps sell more things when we stop for snacks/lunch. More knick knacks. Only complaint really. Fun and the staff were so friendly. Awesome time/experience xx

Did the 20 Tunnel tour from Whangamomona to Okahukura, We were in a 4 seater directly behind the leader. This was our second time on this tour and it has become more professional over the years. The scenery as always is great, the stops are hospitable and well-run, and the commentary at each stop is full of information and anecdotes. The guides were unfailingly happy, efficient, and full of information. Moving excess carts from the track at our first stop was a lesson in management and skill. Our main Guide was Ray - an abundance of anecdotes - he's been everywhere in the region and done everything. Opal was highly efficient and knew everything about the region. Tommo was a giant - big smile, big laugh, and big on friendly. Sharna (not sure I got that right - sorry if not) was quiet and learning but very pleasant to talk to - when she finds her feet she'll be a real asset. At the end we were put on a bus and taken back to Whangamomona with the odd bit of commentary on the way (that road is a disgrace to the government agency responsible - I've written to them for all the good it will do - but at least it's a try - and negotiating it with some skill in a bus is well done). Highly recommend this tour - I understand other tours they do are at least as good

Undertook Rhine of the Pacific tour with Forgotten World. A fantastic trip with all guides being knowledgeable, personable and very practical. Accommodation was good and especially exceeded expectations in wilderness areas. Food tops. Highly recommend this tour.
