From the initial conversation booking to our walk today what a wonderful experience. We did the heli snowshoeing experience and had a real blast. Amazing scenery and a real once in a lifetime experience. Everyone should try it at least once.

Went on the half day snowshoeing trip with a family group of 6 people. Both Pete and Jerry were great tour guides who took us on an amazing walk across virgin snow on the mountain peak. A once in a life time experience

Wonderful experience for our whole family. 2 adults and 2 boys (6 and 11). Things you would not see or do or learn elsewhere. The guide Jerry was great with the kids (and grown ups) Highly recommended (We went up the "Remarkables" of course...)

Stopping at the frozen lake for coffee, tea, milo and cookies, it was an amazing experience and can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities.

Hi Jo, Wendy & Brooke, How are you guys doing? It was a great day out walking in that alpine environment, there's something rather special about sharing this high altitude experience with people. I start out walking with clients and finish up walking with friends. Thanks for the compliments, it means so much to me. I hope we get to... More

We trekked into the wilderness of Mt Creighton, just outside Queenstown on Thursday. With Peter as our guide, our family of four (with our two adventurers 10 & 12) made our way along the most beautiful winding pathway beside a crystal clear creek. Peter's witty humour and expert knowledge made this adventure one of the best things we have done... More

The views of the lake were beautiful too, and we enjoyed a nice cup of tea and a cookie by the lakeshore which was very welcome. We were entertained thoughout the walk... More

It was a great experience for us and the boys yesterday! Coming from the concrete jungle Singapore, it was amazing getting close to nature and having Peter as our guide is just awesome! Hiking the steep slopes in the cold wet weather feels easy as Peter continued to entertain us with his jokes and life experiences. Thanks for parting good... More
