Fantastic!!!

This was a fun and informative day out. Our tour guides Sophie and Rhys were super friendly and really knew their stuff!! We kayacked around the lake and then went on an exciting bush walk. We couldnt believe all of the information they knew about the rainforest. After the walk we stopped had coffee and they told some Maori legends. We especially liked the bush grub! To top it all off Sophie was snapping us along the way with her DSLR and we were given the pictures for free! We absolutely loved this trip it was worth every penny :) So much so my boyfriend now wants to go and buy a kayack of his own.

Wonderful Experience

A wonderful trip, and very went guided tour by Donk & Jo. Even though it was drizzling that day, it was still such a nice experience. And we saw a White Heron, which is suppose to mean good luck!

Fantastic Kayak Experience

A morning very well spent. Beautiful location and scenery, Will was an excellent guide, strong on safety, good knowledge and information on nature walk and a top bloke to boot. The trip can be whatever you want it to be, for us it was relaxed, informative and we also got loads of free photos that were of an extremely high quality to take way as mementos. A sure fire hit if you plan to book.

Must do!

This was a fantastic trip!!! Laura, our guide, was excellent- she shared lots of things about New Zealand culture and nature and conservation with us. She knew what she was doing and made the trip very enjoyable. This was a beautiful way to spend a morning!

Everything about this tour is amazing! The scenery, the local knowledge and stories about the lake and surrounding land, the staff who are so accommodating and the photos they take are stunning! Coolest tour I have done in a really long time. :)
