Great fun!

The Tiki Tour was great! Our guide Austin was very good: he was friendly and helpful, and ensured the group stayed together. As we paddled around the lake he told us a bit about the area, its legends, and tips about Wanaka. The coffee and homemade brownies provided half way through were very welcome, as it is hard work! The lake was a bit choppy due to wind but we always felt very safe in the kayak (we of course had life jackets on, and were explained how to get out of the kayak skirt safely) I can’t fault the afternoon: it was awesome.

Great review! Thanks for your feedback. Austin is a great guide with lots of stories to tell, whilst keeping everyone safe on the water. Glad you enjoyed your time out on Lake Wanala on our Tiki Tour & of course the fabulous chocolate brownies. Thanks for chosing us.

Tiki Tour 4hrs of Awsomeness

October morning cold but the sun is out. Our start was a little off with some error in the booking info but we got picked up graciously at our accomodation. Austin our guide was so relaxed, friendly, chatty, entertainingly, funny, friendly and everything you want a guide to be. He made sure of our safety, fed us amazing stories and info all the way, involved everyone, fed us amazing brownies (YUM) with tea, real coffee and hot chocolate. For 5 in the group, we had 2 guides, Austin and Sherie who was also lovely, helpful, friendly and cheerful. Well paced tour, not difficult. Suggestion: ▪️Incorporate some group photos and action shots by the guide diring the paddle. ▪️When giving those wonderful and super interesting commentaries, it should be coming from behind or beside the group as sound travels better straight ahead. Sometimes it was difficult to hear the guide because he was facing away from the group and in front... though Austin had a nice loud voice, the lake occassionally swallowed hos voice. Overall, we had an AMAZING time, thank you again. All day tour next time!!!!
