One of the best tour experiences ever 5.0/5 stars We were lucky as we had sunshine and clear skies. This enhanced our wonderful experienceу with Kent as our driver and guide. The whole trip was exhilarating and fun. We were picked up at the hotel and were two on the tour. Kent (the guide) was very friendly and told a lot, it was very interesting. The trip was perfect, incredible, amazing! Thank you Kent! Hristo and Mariela

Breathtaking views at the edge of the world!

If you want to see pure New Zealand scenery with beautiful green hills, mountains and its rural environment and then experience the feeling of being at the edge of the world, and say hello to the colony of very relaxed seals, this trip is for you! Thanks to this activity I could experience something unforgettable and breathtaking, something I've always wanted to see. If you're around Wellington and even if you're in a hurry, I highly recommend you to choose this trip and see it for yourself. Our guide Grant was so polite, helpful and had great knowledge about the area and he made sure we could understand everything he said.

The half day tour was one of our highlights of our trip. We were picked up at the hotel and there were three of us on the tour. The guide was very friendly and told a lot, it was very interesting. The seals had coffee / tea and cake. The trip was perfect all round.
