Owner description: Our guided walks take you to our 'kiwi' bach built in the early 1900s by a farmer attempting to run sheep along the rocky granite coastline of what is today the renowned Abel Tasman National Park. Old but brimming with history, visitors hear the tales of whale strandings and local stories while enjoying a lunch stop in one of the most beautiful bays of the Abel Tasman National Park.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and your guided walk to our 'Kiwi' bach. We agree that it is a classic example of New Zealand history that is fast disappearing. Thank you for taking the time to review Abel Tasman Tours & Guided Walks - and also as a British fisherman, for reslinging my fishing net. What an absolute bonus and so much appreciated. Maree

“Great Guided Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2010

If you want to spend the day with a guide hiking and boating around ABel Tasman, look no further. We did the 2 hour hike and then took a water taxi up further in the park. We did some more hiking, and then took the taxi back to the starting point. Fabulous day.
