Nicole picked the weather perfectly, after a day of rain the late morning sun and afternoon rim walk was perfect. Around 10 kms of undulating path and a vist to the boulders for lunch. A great scenic, fun and guided experience

We had a great day out at Crater Rim. Nicole even checked our fitness levels beforehand to make sure we got the most out of our day on the most suitable length trail. It's stunning up there with varying views from bush to panoramic outlooks over the city. Fabulous lunch at the Little Kiwi Cafe (recommend, lovely staff) where we sat in the sun with all the dogs and their walkers - we'll be back for sure!

Out of all the things you do, this is an absolute must! This hike, which is not a difficult hike, is incredible and beautiful and scenic and fun and everything you would ever hope for from NZ. If you skip this, you've skipped the major reason for visiting NZ. Nicole is wonderful and knowledgeable and patient and fun. I encourage everyone to book this tour. It will be one of the biggest highlights of your trip! You can book directly on their website too. I can't say enough about them and the day they plan -- and they take care of everything!! Nothing for you to worry about except a great day. PS - we did it in running shoes and it worked great. No hiking boots or special shoes needed. Thanks for a great day Crater Rim Walks!!!

I had the best day of my visit to Nee Zealand thus far with Crater Rim Walks. While many other tours would not book me as a single Nicole took me on a grand tour and I was the only customer that day. She was even kind enough to switch days from my original booking so I could do another trip. She contacted me in advance with lots of information about what we would do and what I should bring and everything was perfect. She provides very detailed information enroute to the site for our hike, we stopped for coffee and she provided a great lunch. I will recommend her and her business very highly to anyone wanting to see this very special place and enjoy the exercise. Even locals in Christchurch expressed an interest. Five star experience!
Thank you Nicole.

Our guide Nicole was amazing! She picked my spouse and I up from our hotel and greeted us in a lovely manner. She then drove us to the hiking trail. For myself, being a beginner at hiking/walking trails, Nicole was very patient and consistely making sure that we were going at an appropriate speed
She even packed us a good healthy lunch and we even got a souvenir water bottle. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves the outdoors and to everyone as well
