Great experience

The trip was amazing. The only issue was because was raining a lot in the morning and we couldn't get a 100% refund. Anyway, we devide to go ahead with the trip and the weather got better on the afternoon. Was a great experience and I highly recommend.

World-Class

We had a fantastic day's adventure and area thinking to return to make this a multi-day trip. FYI: I was so glad we went from Tonga Bay through to Bark Bay, as this was much easier going that in the opposite direction!!! The other good thing to note is that there is plenty of time to walk the track, you do not need to rush, so stop and enjoy the scenery, as it is spectacular

This our first time travelling with Wilson and exploring Abel Tasman. The staff were so friendly and informational. The guide on the boat was fantastic. We loved every bit of it.

Fantastic blitz of the Able Tasman

I have done the Able Tasman tracks many times and always bring friends visiting on the full day Wilson Tour of the Able Tasman - and it’s always such a highlight of their trip. Wilson staff are friendly, experienced and are always warm welcoming - especially lovely Katie who also goes above and beyond to make visitors experiences so memorable. Keep up the fantastic work Wilson’s!
