Really enjoyed the night time Kiwi trip. We saw several Kiwi on the beach.

Boat ride was interesting - we stopped for various wildlife sightings. Hiked through forest at night to beach. Hiked down the beach and saw several Kiwi's eating bugs in the sand. One came very close to our small group - about 3 feet away. Got some great photos.

It was a clear night and the stars were the most amazing I've ever seen since there was no light pollution.

Guides were very helpful and knowledgeable.

It was really great to see a Kiwi - it was the highlights of our vacation.

We had a fantastic time in the island, many thanks in special to Johnny , our tour guide , who guided us on the kiwi bird spotting and the bird watching on Oban island. He was a super friendly and extremely knowledgeable guy. 11 out of 10 experience!!!

A highly professional and well-organized experience. The guides on boat and on land (Telieigha and Isau, if I have their names correctly) were polished and friendly and though I'm sure they give the spiel a million times they were energetic and engaging. The cave experience was nothing short of magical and I learned a lot about the flora and fauna of the area. Highly recommend!

We spent 2 days at the island. Arrived at 10.45am and left the next day at 3.30pm. enough time to see the sites. We took the bus on the 1.5 hour tour and covered all the roads. The island has 27 kms of roads and 350 kms of walking tracks with most of the island part of Kakiura National Park. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we had photo opportunity during the trip where we got to get off the bus. Good way to see the sights and learn the history
