We thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Paul and a large group with 10 cars running. Driving the carts does take some skill to maintain distances and keep safe but adds to the trip's charm. Paul is a very entertaining and genial host, well organised, knowledgable. Highly recommended. Children especially would enjoy the trip greatly.

Incredible experience for all ages

What a fantastic experience! Paul was knowledgeable, friendly and very safety conscious! Everything from feeding the chickens, patting the pet deer “Lucky” to seeing the incredible farmland from the golf carts, was 10/10! We had our 3 and 4 year old with us and it was perfect for them! Highly recommend! Thanks Paul! Great memories made

Brilliant - just brilliant!

Awakeri Rail Cruisjng is the best rail cruising trip I've been on. Not only was it value for money, our host Paul was larger than life and really made the trip fun/interactive. It's not a typical rail cruise, as we loved feeding the chickens and taking a bush walk as part of the trip. I won't spoil the hidden twists but I will say - definitely not one to miss!

A Great Trip

This was a great way to spend an afternoon. The converted golf carts are easy to drive. The guide (Vern) was great - very knowledgeable about the area. Even made us a cup of Kawakawa tea from leaves we picked ourselves.

We had a lovely day out in the fresh air and sunshine. Got to tag along with a tour group of oldies and still enjoyed ourselves. Paul the guide is an informative and funny man....many surprises along the way! Coffee stop and bush walk timed so it kept things rolling along perfectly. Will recommend this to everyone.
