Our guide Peter was an excellent educator on safety , local history and geology.. so many great stories. Had a huge amount of fun powering through the streams.. navigating a hill I believed I could never get down!..pure adrenalin rush! However the splendor of the landscape on the tour.. the majesty of the mountains, the amazing feat of engineering explained about the bridge across the gorge and the geological history of the area.. stunning. Thank you Peter for sharing your slice of Paradise with us and allowing us to fondly remember our farming days!!

So much fun!!!!
Sep 2021 • Solo
My partner and I were lucky enough to be the only two for our time slot for the day and it was worth every penny! The lady in the store who booked us in was lovely and explained everything thoroughly, Peter was our guide/instructor and he was awesome,So much knowledge of the area and explained a lot of history to us when we stopped to take in the views up the hill. Gear and photos are included, only wished we had booked a longer tour as we just had so much fun. Thanks guys! 😀
