Great experience

Punctuate. Driver not just take you there, but would also give you good advice such as the weather condition, what to bring with and where you will find toilets. However, when one finished the 194Km and arrived the exit in Ketekihi carpark, prepared to walk further 1km out to get your car back there. That's quite tired.

No experience

They are a shuttle service. That's it. Other shuttles give you a briefing when they drop you. These guys don't care a bit. Unlike Mountain Shuttle they don't provide parking. I paid $15 to Mountain Shuttle for parking. Though I could have parked on street. The walk from the end of track to car park is 1km. It is a pathetic muddy road and you will have cars passing by flying the dust. Still better than waiting for the shuttle to fill up I guess

Didn't inform us properly about weather conditions

The shuttle ride was fine. When we arrived, we were informed that we should be careful etcetera, but it wasn't mentioned that the hike is not recommend today due to bad weather. There was an average wind speed of 70kmh with gusts up until 140kmh. Thankfully, the weather got better during the day but I would have liked to be informed of the current status and the official "not recommended" status of our hike!

Thanks for your feedback. The weather forecast was for improving conditions - which is why we ran. You were not forced into hiking - and you could have turned around or chosen not to go. We were not aware of this ourselves until we arrived at the start of the track. We have spoken with DOC about this. Yes, it was windy - and we made sure we informed all of our customers this. I think you had a pretty good day in the end which is great as the weather did improve as was forecasted. Cheers!
