I went on a one day hike guided by Mary through the bush and it was one of the best one-day treks I've ever done. I do a lot of walking but it's really unusual to be able to get off the path and just head out into the wilderness, knowing that you won't come across another soul and probably not many people have been that way before. The trek we did was absolutely stunning - amazing views all around - and took us across varied terrain. And Mary was fantastic, imparting knowledge about navigation as we went, and providing encouragement as we negotiated some trickier spots. Although she did laugh her head off when I fell in a hole. All in all a brilliant day - I'd highly recommend it. I'm hoping to get back out to New Zealand in the near future and try a longer trek, which look great.

Really enjoyed the experience. Loads of fun and exciting things to see and learn from our knowledgable and kind guide Mary. You get way off the beaten track and you are shown different techniques of how to survive with neat demonstrations. The price is very reasonable. Plus, if you pay attention, there might be a free beer in it for you. Would definitely do it again!

Had a great day walking through the forest (off track) with interesting stuff about the conservation projects and how to survive (also some great stories ;-p). Mary is a very cool guide! Would do it again :-)! Greets the bomb guy :-D

PS: It won't be the last tree I've ever hugged :-)!

Had a great time learning about conservation and survival tips from Mary during our half day trip. It is good fun and our guide was very knowledgeable and sociable. If you are planning on doing this I would definitely recommend. Pay attention though because there might be a quiz, and you might benefit from answering the questions correctly ;)
