Epic Day Trip

Everyone should do this day trip with Clay. So chill and personable, knowledgeable about the areas you visit and a good laugh. The trip itself is breathtaking and you get to see a lot of natural beauty. Highly recommend.

The best way to spend your money!

I absolutely loved the experience and found it very carefree and personal. The small group was great and everyone made some new friends. The tour guide was very friendly, caring and down to earth. Of course, the location was incredible. A must see on your trip to NZ.
