Many thanks Mollie for this fantastic review. Of course having great clients also makes the trip easier going to manage etc. We certainly enjoy the smaller groups and will always stay as such with a maximum of 12 people on any one multi day trip.

Hi Dennis - many thanks for a great review, we are very lucky to have Allen & Sylvia involved in our business as our host family.

Well organised trip, friendly people, good food, always on time and nothing too much. I would certainly use them again. It is worth checking them out to organise your activities in the New Plymouth Tongario south part of the North Island.
