  • Our kayak trip the other day with Jo and will was fabulous the boys were lovely and so passionate about the area and the culture and clearly were keen to share their knowledge. They clearly knew more than what the company excepted of them! The tour was great and you get to paddle across the lake and into a creek up to the kiwi sanctuary which was lovely and you can really appreciate the work to preserve the natural new Zealand environment would 10 out of 10 recommend
  • Honestly a truly awesome experience! I did the kayak and hike 4-hour trip, and it rained almost the entire time- it did not even slightly take away from the day. It was fantastic. Dale and Jo were so friendly and knowledgable about the area and they made sure everyone knew what was going on all the time. It was so good. They also took photos the whole way around so that you didn’t have to worry about dropping your own camera. IT WAS BRILLIANT. I highly recommend this trip to anyone passing through the Franz Josef area.
