My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Not only was the scenery wonderful but the quality of all the arrangements was first class. We would recommend this tour unreservedly.

This was the first time my husband and I had been on an escorted tour and we certainly picked the right company and driver/guide to do it with. Geoff's knowledge of people and places was very informative and added greatly to the wonderful Marlborough/North Canterbury scenery. The accommodation was very comfortable and all the meals included were excellent. The tour... More

This was one of the best holidays we have had in New Zealand. The accommodation, food, and selection of places to visit was wonderful. Geoff is a great host and his stories and knowledge of the history of Molesworth Station is phenomenal. We had never been to Hanmer before but hope to go back one day. Do visit the hot... More

This should really be called a safari, not a tour. Geoff the host has so many stories and so much knowledge of the region. But he can't compete with the stunning beauty and endless mountain ranges during this day trip. Great trip, good food and excellent company. Definitely recommend the day trip from Blenheim.

For New Zealanders the opportunity to tread on this part of the High Country, which is so connected to the history of development of their nation, is quite rare. For those coming from other places, the beauty and variety to be experienced on the trip through gorgeous mountains, rivers and valleys must surely delight. In addition to the wonderful expanses...

An outstanding tour. Enabled us to see the Molesworth and enjoy it, with as much or as little cycling as wished. Accommodation was first class, including the shearing shed experience and the real high country dinner. Home cooking was a food feature, from morning and afternoon teas, to the lunches and dinners. A really first class NZ experience.

This was one of the best 5 day cycle trips we've done. Great to have a "local" to give you all the inside information :-) !! We're taking the family to do it again with us.

To celebrate my wife's birthday we took the one day Molesworth tour and it was brilliant. Our guide Will shared with us stories, history and local events while driving us through awesome scenery. We were able to stop for photo's, or to look at the rare plants. We spotted deer, goats, merino sheep, bulls, various birds, and horses. The roaring... More
