“A Beautiful and Edifying Tour”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed a two hour private guided hike in the Puketi Forest. We were guided by Ian, who was both knowledgable and enthusiastic in explaining differetn flora and fauna. It was fantastic for me, a tree lover, to be able to see the spectacular giant Kauri Trees and to learn about history and culture throughout. It was not a difficult walk, so nature-enthusiasts of all types should definitely go!

We found the walk through the forest both interesting and informative. The enthusiasm and knowledge of all concerned was obvious and made the whole experience memorable. If you are reasonable mobile it is a great way to see New Zealand's natural beauty.

We had a fabulous stay at Adventure Puketi.
The accommodation was very clean and fresh and inviting.
The location is lovely and peaceful and quiet and just perfect for relaxing.
There is everything you need and a very relaxing and private hot tub which just tops it off.
The hosts are very knowledgable , friendly and accommodating.The gardens and grounds are just lovely and the place is very well cared for.
The food was great and the fresh fruit divine.
Value for money and highly recommended to all. We've already booked our next stay at Easter.

“Great Night Out”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Have done a fair bit of walking in the forest of my own accord but the night experience with a guide is something else. Ian's knowledge and passion is unending and he kept us all engaged from plants and Kauri to creepy crawlies.

“A great experience”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

A fabulous walk through ancient forest the atmosphere is just so different to the clean and ordered look of a newly planted forest. Ian the tour guide knows so much and is so involved with the preservation of the wildlife he speaks with such affinity it is a privilege to be out on the walk.
I would have loved to have taken a night walk as well but time was lacking so I will come back again.
