What a fantastic experience we had doing this trip. It was so wonderful, it will remain with us for many months ahead. To Ray, what a tremendous guide he was, his local knowledge was just amazing, to Wendy, Danny and all the other staff - how friendly, helpful they all were. Our stay in Whangamomona on the Sat night - what a great bunch of people, the meal, the atmosphere - so good. The Rail Cart trip for both days, was unique, super New Zealand countryside, even with the animals coming to check on you !!!! We have recommended to a number of people to go on this trip, some have already booked, and we will certainly still be raving about it for sometime to come. Well done to you all.

Absolutely stunning scenic trip. Quiet and peaceful and the amount of history given just right. Felt like we were on our own experiencing the trip in our private rail cart. Or two teenage daughters loved it, great to have them off their phones.

We had an excellent day out. The tour was like a journey into little known history of NZ. The carts, the guides and organisation were superb, as was the food. I would recommend this tour to almost all ages. I will never forget it either.

This was a fantastic experience for our group of 8 friends. Ray was an amazing guide - we loved his sense of humour and extensive local knowledge. Catering - especially home baking was delicious. Amazing to explore an area we had never visited which is so scenic. Staff we dealt were all friendly and efficient. Great value for money. We will definitely recommend this trip to others.
