This tour, was well organized. The hikes and the accommodation were as indicated in the tour publicity. The two persons accompanying the participants were pleasant and efficient. They did whatever they could to ensure that arrangements worked out for the best. However they did not match the promise in the tour publicity of being "expert guides". They provided spasmodic, anecdotal... More

Thanks for taking the time to offer this constructive criticism. We will definitely discuss this with our guides. We have always promoted a relaxed and friendly atmosphere on our trips, as we believe it’s an inherent characteristic of Kiwi culture. This is reflected in our guides mannerisms. The majority of our clients really enjoy this approach, as shown in previous... More

An excellent walk with experienced and friendly guides. We were walking on the Tongariro 3.5 days hiking tour. Excellent accommodation, and well provisioned. The special dinner was great. The crossing itself is a solid walk, but well worth it.

Walking legends is the choice! The guides are not only extremely knowledgable and attentive, but also simultaneously so fun and personable that it's as if you're hiking with your friends. Sam and Andrea made my Lake Waikaremoana experience so awesome and they were able to cater to all levels and needs...everyone in the group loved them. The Lake lodge was... More

We had to download the TripAdvisor app just to write this review, but we were that committed to praising Walking Legends. Experienced mountain climbers and trip leaders ourselves, we were impressed with Walking Legends guides Zeb and Chris. They were observant, proactive, experienced, knowledgeable about the territory, generous in their helpfulness, and we've never seen such gourmet meals prepared in... More

This was a fantastic day with great views. It is a long and hard walk. I would advise to go and see. You may feel a bit sore the next day, even if you are quite fit. A definite must while your here but a once in a life-time experience for me

This 12 day hike was the most amazing adventure. We were so well looked after, especially by the wonderful guides. The itinerary covered everything and flowed so well, we were never left at a loose end. The walks, the climbs, the food, the guides, we couldn't have asked for more.

I cannot say enough good things about Walking Legends. The guides were attentive and genuinely good people. They took care of us from start to finish our entire trip. No detail is over looked.
