Glow worm, zip line, tubes

My husband and I were on our honeymoon, & we were lucky enough to have just the pair of us & our 2 guides on the trip, Pete the NZ zipline guide & Jay Jay the US tubing guide. Both were extremely informative, and happy to answer any question we had. The zipline was exhilarating, but it would have been... More

Whats in greymouth? Just the best trip in NZ. Jono was the best guide so informative from NZ politics to a glow worms mating habits (give the boy a raise Paul). It started with a bushwalk then a descent into a 10 Metre deep gorge a body width wide this led to a tube river trip in the most gorgeous... More

Went on the combined zipwire/tubing trip with 4 other adults and although the river was very low we all had a great time-guides were entertaining and took lots of photos/videos. Would have liked a longer zipwire ride and obviously tubing would have been more exciting in deeper water. Had a hot chocolate in the glow worm caves and a spa... More

This tour made for an exceptionally special experience of my time along the west coast. A small group of three of us allowed for a much more personalized tour, always a welcome pleasantry for a lone traveler like myself. Beginning at the base in town, our legendary guide JJ set the 3 of us up in all our attire and... More

Great way to see the caves and floating down a picturesque river. Doesn't require a great level of fitness and very personalized as only small groups go at a time. Long enough adventure to make putting a wetsuit on worth while but short enough you can incorporate it as merely a short stop in Greymouth if pressed for time. We... More

We were at the end of an amazing holiday spanning most of NZ including Queenstown - para sailing, luge. shot-over boat, helicopter to Franz Joseph etc. etc. when we went on this tour. We weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised. The tour combined zip-lining, tubing and glow worm caving all in one. The great thing was that this tour... More

Well, I think you've described our adventure perfectly. And after all the great things you guys did here in the South Island, it's an honour to be counted among the best. We do try and personalise our tours, so we're really glad to hear that you felt that way. Thank you for such a warm review; we really appreciate it.... More
