My husband and I decided to do a personal guided hike to Rob Roy as we were hesitant to risk our rental car on unsealed roads and didn't want to be restricted by the bus shuttle timings. In the end we could have managed the drive . But we had no regrets with the guided hike as we learnt far... More

This was one of the highlights of a trip to New Zealand’s South Island that was packed with highlights. Following a magical 90 minute walk to the top of Mount Iron, we joined our guide Chris Riley at the marina for the start of our tour. From the moment the boat left her moorings until we tied back up 4... More

We had the unique experience of a helihike with Chris as our guide. He certainly knows his mountains. We were inspired by his enthusiasm. The views,both alpine & lake scenery were just awesome. High tea looking at Mt Aspiring is just so memorable. Fully recommended

His infectious enthusiasm and incredible energy, will just make your day even more magical. Our heli-hike combined an exciting flight to the top of Treble Cone, with a an extra stop to... More

We did the walk to the Rib Roy glacier with Heidi as our guide. Heidi was excellent and could not do enough to make sure that we had a good time, showing an in-depth knowledge of the area and it's history. The weather was beautiful and we had a memorable lunch beneath the glacier in the sunshine - which we'll... More

Chris is a terrific guide to the Lake and the island of Mou Wahou where they have a predator free environment for the endangered Weka birds. The morning boat ride across the Lake offers splendid views that pale, though, once you walk to the 600 foot summit of the island. (The walk is not onerous and Chris stops many times... More
