Excellent day with guide Dave Oakes. Good weather and conditions considering recent rains. Had come for the superb Lions tour but this gave us a chance to see the treasures of raw New Zealand with good exercise included.

This is a smaller van, which makes for a more personal experience, and the information shared was professional, humorous and entertaining, not to mention memorable. I highly recommend this company for an educational and delightful experience....More
