Amazing day with my wife and I and our guide Ian. Ian was so friendly and knowledgeable, took good care of us making sure we took care when walking as it was a fairly physical walk with a lot of different types of terrain. Ian took the time to show us all the different types of vegetation, trees and the... More

Enjoyed our rain forest walk, as we were the only ones booked on that day, we had a private tour- lucky us! a calm-paced and enjoyable walk through beautiful forests and vistas. All with commentary from an experienced and knowledgeable guide. Felt very relaxed and welcomed.

Helen was a very passionate and knowledgable guide. There was a lot of information about the flora and fauna. I wish I could remember it all. I did this walk in early November and it was quite windy and cool after dark so a jacket is definitely needed. I would also recommend wearing good walking shoes that you don't mind... More

We had the guided rainforest walk from Ian and learnt so many new things about the beautiful natural environments and native animals New Zealand has to offer. Loved every second! Both Barbara and Ian were very welcoming.

The night walk is an amazing activity for people who like to explore a forest in a totally new way. And it is definitely an adventure to be in the darkness surrounded by the wild life. Ian - the owner and guide has an incredible knowledge about the flora + fauna and about the whole area. He is sharing his... More

We did a night walk in March and we admired the guide's passion for the environment and knowledge of wildlife. We saw a lot of invertebrates, wetas in particular, some of them huge! Kiwis are very rare though and we didn't see any on this walk.

We did a guided night walk - private guide, as we were the only two that day. Not just that Puketi Forest is just so dense and beautiful with the last sunlight. But once it is dark, an amazing new world around you appears. Plants are seen in a very different way, bird calls incl. kiwi can be heard and... More

We booked our tour as we were visiting the area on a cruise ship. Unfortunately our ship was delayed and we missed the start of our rainforest walk. When we reached the dock we were met by our guide Ian who gave us a personal tour in the Puketi rainforest. He was very knowledgeable and we saw lots of trees,... More
