    Really awesome
    Absolutely stunning scenery if the weather is right - and go to the loo before setting off on the trek! Also remember to download the audio prior to your visit so you don't have any connection issues and because it is far cheaper with no roaming charges. Brilliant commentary I thought and the Maori element was welcomed.

    Cool little city with interesting points to see. Simple download to our cellphones and the map was a bonus. Good information.

    Lovely when clouds parted
    We thought we were mad going up on a misty day with showers. But we were lucky enough to see the emerald lakes for 5-10 minutes. Go loo before the shuttle as the start ones smell pretty bad. It’s long, and steep in parts but the track is clearly cut and it’s not difficult if you are into tramping. I’m wanted to walk faster but the group took a little longer. We completed in 8 hrs. You need waterproof jacket and merino top or polypropylene. Tramping boots can be hired in national park. If you only here 1 day then stay in National Park. Because that’s where most shuttles start and return. $40 return. We found it hard to find an open shuttle place that could do a one way. (Start of season) Last shuttle home was 4:30 pm and we only just made it.

    This is no way affiliated with The Edwin Fox Museum and it seems to have attached itself to our page.

    Couldn’t download the audio file due to slow 3G cell service. So I wasted the fee. If you buy the tour, download when you have high speed internet.

Read the previous review and was fore-warned to download the tour before setting off. It worked well and the information was current and relevant. Nice little city with eclectic shopping and good food.

If you are not the best with technology I would not suggest this audio self guided tour. That being said I may not be the best one to write this review. Once I figured out how to get this on my phone I needed to refer to the map that I had downloaded on my phone. It would have been easier to have the map in hand while listening to the audio. Sadly I would not recommend this.
