My husband and I booked the Twilight Encounter tour after reading all the great reviews and we are very glad we did. Our guide was amazing and really treated us like family. He was very funny but when he spoke about the Maori culture and the forest was very serious which made you understand the true importance of everything. Yes, it did rain while we were there but I was prepared with a rain jacket and hood. Don’t wear good shoes if it is raining because although most of the tour is on a boardwalk, some areas are not and will get muddy and dress warm!! In the forest you won’t get soaked because of all the trees. Our guide taught us how to identify a male and female kiwi, facts about the plants, and Maori culture. The whole tour is very powerful. Our guide dropped us back off at our hotel (McKenzie B&B) afterwards because he said it was too dark for us to walk home. I can’t say enough good things!! I would recommend this tour to anyone.
