My husband and I did the Kenepuru Sound kayaking activity for our honeymoon. Charlie, the guide, was wonderful and made the experience. We had the entire sound to ourselves and Charlie was great with giving us information about the area without being overbearing. We picked mussels from a mussel farm and stopped for lunch and Charlie boiled the mussels up... More

My husband and I had a wonderful day exploring Queen Charlotte Sound by sea kayak with my sister Chris Cameron as our excellent guide. It was a fantastic and very tranquil way to experience the area with crystal clear water and beautiful bush clad hills. We stopped for a billy cuppa on a little beach and then kayaked over to...

Just returned from a fabulous 5 day guided walk with this company. The lodges were beautiful and the food and wine excellent. We were two fairly inexperienced hikers in a group of twelve and with the help of our wonderful guide, all made this long but beautiful walk. Jeremy, the guide, tended to walk at the back of the pack... More

Came here on very short notice and had a great time kayaking (sit on tops?) thanks to the very friendly blonde woman (sorry I forgot your name!). We didn't really do our research prior to arriving at Picton and she was more than helpful to us. It was about $30 for two people to paddle around the harbor (for one... More

Four of us from Australia, and four others enjoyed the fabulous scenery over 5 days. We walked 71 km over four of the 5 days, and kayaked on the other day. Tracks were good, with lots of "ups and downs" and wonderful photo opportunities. Great food and accommodation, all in the company of our wonderful guide, Harry. A very professional... More

We enjoyed a half day kayak through the Marlborough Sounds. Our guide was very friendly and professional. Everything was explained really well and run very efficiently. The day we went out was perfect. We couldn't have asked for better weather! The trip was so much fun and great value for money. I would recommend this as a must do way... More

This was an absolutely amazing 5 day walk. We walked with 5 other couples and had a ball. Food was amazing, the walk was at times hot and a little hard but so rewarding. Our Guide Ray was absolutely brilliant. The slices, lunch and his amazing knowledge were something we looked forward to every morning. When we plan our next... More

Family of five had planned to Kayak in Abel Tasman but poor weather resulted in it being cancelled. Thankfully for us we had a spare day whilst in Picton and this turned out to be the ideal way to get a sense of the area. Very professionally run day from start to finish, good value for money, and our guide,... More

We used this company to do the 5 day guided walk of the QC track. It was well organized and the transport arrangements went smoothly. They provided a boat shuttle to anyone with injuries or who was unable to do the longest day (24kms). We would have appreciated an email in the week or month before the trip started. Once... More

Used this group to plan the Queen Charlotte walk. Living in the states and not having been to New Zealand we wanted a group that would make everything go smoothly. The group was terrific. We handled all the arrangements via email. We got our lodging completed,including packed lunches each day and they arranged for our bags to be taken to... More
