Amazing adventure!

Ben was a great tour host and guide. He let us know what to expect at each up-coming stage and took a very chilled approach to the speed of the hike allowing all the time we needed for everyone to take photos. He was supportive and encouraging of slower or less confident group members. He was also informative about the mountains geology and hIstory. Thanks Ben! An awesome day out!

Excellent Adventure

Great day out to see a volcano with the added bonus of using 4wd to get most of the way to the top! The guides were fun and knowledgeable and the scenery was beautiful. Highly recommend! Highlight was running down the scree slope into the crater. Wear decent shoes and expect to do some walking.
