We travelled from Douglas , 15km out of Stratford to Whangmomona and back on the disused railway.
Dave provided a great commentary and we enjoyed seeing the back country and exploring the history that makes this a fascinating part of NZ.
It was chilly in the morning but warmed up throughout the day. I would recommend taking layers of clothing and there is a blanket provided.
I would recommend - it is expensive but we both had the time to enjoy the scenery wheras when you are driving only one person can relax.
Our lunch at the Whangamomona Hotel is what you would expect in a back country pub - fresh and wholesome.
