Shane was an absolutely amazing guide. He challenged us to hike through the entire run. My husband got injuries shortly into the tour but Shane ensured the tour was within his physical capacity. We truly appreciated him and will definitely book another one when we come back.

Johnny was a really great guide,knowledgable,interactive and fun. The day was really well organised and gave plenty of time for some relaxation. Stunning location and would highly recommend Thank you so Much Sue
