Rachel from Hokitia Scenic Cruises was a joy to take a tour with. She is very informative with extensive knowledge and pride for Hokitika.
She took us out to the Hokitika Gorge where we spent some pleasant time taking in the splendour of this beautiful spot.
I would highly recommend Rachel if you are contemplating a visit to Hokitika, nothing is too much trouble for her.

We took the lake & gorge trip with Hokitika Scenic Tours and we were delighted by the feeling that this was a personalized tour. Rachel was our guide and driver, and we couldn't have had a more friendly or knowledgeable person. We were not rushed at stops, and arrived at each one prepared with what to expect and with time to look around, including time to take the gorge walk to the viewpoints and swinging bridge. This is *Not* like being on a tour bus with a guide droning into a microphone, this is a nice roomy van with a local Kiwi who knows the history, the trees, the birds, and answers all of your questions as if it were the first time she'd been asked.

We hope to come again to this "place of return" and hope we find Hokitika Scenic Tours still here to use again, maybe for a trip to Fox Glacier...

Rachel has taken me and my teen daughter on the tour to the Hokitika Gorge. Apart from that the gorge itself is spectacular it was a pleasure to meet Rachel as she is a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and I will definitely recommend her service to others.

If sight seeing is your plan, I would recommend Hokitika Scenic Tours. Our visit to pancake Rocks was just amazing. Rachel was very informative with her local knowledge and the drive was so very relaxed. Didn't feel rushed in anyway while walking Pancake Rocks, lots of photos opportunities as well. A big thank you to Hokitika Scenic Tours the day was just wonderful thank you. Kate Maungaturoto.

Rachel is an absolute legend- when our plans had to drastically change due to my travel buddy's illness, she gladly drove us up to greymouth to get to hospital last minute and showed real compassion. Plus she took me to the gorge afterwards as well, which was a breathtaking place to visit. Amazing woman and an amazing part of the world to visit; could not reccommend this business enough.
