Writing this review to let others know our experience. Pros: Emily our guide was great. Craig our jet boat driver was great as well. Scenery was beautiful. Cons: Unbeknownst to us the lunch provided has to be carried by you. We shared a backpack so we didn't have enough space. Lunch was sub-par in our opinion. Lunch bags were cheap and ripped. Jackets were also provided which was great as they were very nice jackets but had we known we wouldn't have packed our own jackets as was noted to bring. Never went to the "Maori cave" noted in the "Highlights" nor did we stop at the cafe in Glenorchy. Summary: Over-priced

Kia ora TravelBug1010479, Many thanks for taking the time to place a review on your recent experience, your feedback is very valuable to us and we will be taking immediate action to address the concerns you raise about the quality of your lunch. We will also be sure to update the content in our collateral to make it clear that there is an option to borrow jackets instead of using your own and that your lunch needs to be carried. Our sincere apologies that your trip did not include a visit to the cave as mentioned on our website or the stop at the cafe in Glenorchy, we will follow up with our team in relation to this. We're really pleased to hear that you found the scenery to be beautiful and the quality of our guiding and jet boat driving to be great. Thanks again and safe travels. Ngā mihi Lucy

On January 12, we had a super nature walk with Stephen who was a very knowledgeable on the plants, trees, birds and animals. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Stephen as he is truly a great naturalist, a good communicator and is thriving in the outdoors which he obviously loves. Highlight was the view at the end of a short climb with great 360 views and Bob’s Cove.

This one day hike will provide you with a most excellent memory of NZ and its natural landscape. The hike wasn't easy but is doable for amateur hiker. Stephen was our guide and was incredible with the pace, information, and care.

The Hollyford trail was a true gem, not a tourist hot spot and such wonderful and diverse environments are encountered. If you're looking for something a little different in your hikes I highly reccomend this trail. The guides were fantastic, the food and service impeccable.
