  • We did the 10 tunnel and jet boat trip and it was just great, the guides were really good and kept us informed and looked after us. We would like to return and do more.  more »
  • We really enjoyed our 5-tunnel tour with Luke. He was very informative about the area, the rail and the lives of those who built it. And surprise! Delicious hot soup for lunch! A great way to see a different side of New Zealand.
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Forgotten World. The host was very helpful in finding us a place to stay when we wanted another night in town and the entire staff was friendly and accomodating. We appreciated having a place to store our bicycles and being centrally locates in town by all of the restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here.
