It is worth to join this tour especially for the one who don’t have much experience on hiking. Issac is a very kind person. He not only take you to the peak but also help you to take some glorious photos 😁

Absolutely smashing holiday. No pressure to keep a particular running pace and the guides and entire group were supportive and amazing to spend time with. Going again next year (already booked and paid!)

Thank you so much mate. So stoked you enjoyed your tour! And thanks for giving me such good workout, you mountain goat! Keep training solid and I'm sure you will get more results like Buffalo. Happy to have you back anytime.

Best trail running holiday ever! I have run trails the world over but the out of the way places, guidance, views & camaraderie on this Wanaka based camp were second to none.
