Stunning

A fantastic day out from start to finish - outstanding staff who couldn't do enough for you. Made me proud to be a kiwi seeing such a slick operation showing off our beautiful country and giving everyone an outstanding experience.

A Great Way To Experience The Beauty

A great way to see Abel Tasman Park and surrounds. Murray, our driver/guide, was very helpful and informative. The short walk was very good for people like myself who don't do long tramps. The forest was invigorating and there was a waterfall and beautiful beach at the end. There was plenty of time to enjoy Barks Bay before walking to the next bay for pickup.
