    Fantastic time, especially for my rail enthusiast son. Paul was most welcoming and entertaining. We've done other self-drive rail trips, but this is the best by far. See you again next year.

    Lovely morning out

    Well set up and organised - not spectacular scenery but not many railways are! Patrick the guide was very relaxed but professional.

    A great day of memories for me personally as I am a retired NZR Loco Engineer who drove trains on the Awakeri line. Paul and his team have done a terrific job, looking after our NZ history. Recommended to everyone to take the journey.
