We had originally wanted to hike the Routeburn Trek but I knew that I could not go that many miles. So I found Charles at Private Discovery Tours through viator and he catered the day to exactly what we were looking for. I cant recommend him enough.

Dec 2017 • Family
Our family absolutely LOVED our Routeburn Valley trek. Not only was the scenery stunning, but the day was well organized from start to finish and our guide, Jenny was fantastic. We learned so much as we hiked along the trail, moved at a great pace and given that we were traveling with a 1 year old, felt especially grateful to be in such wonderful hands. I'd highly recommend this company for exploring NZ!
